How do the lifetime for today’s white LEDs compare to traditional light sources?

The entrance of electric lights into the operating room was firstly problematic: the light emitted was poor, still moving and diffuse, with great heat radiation.

Light-emitting diodes as light sources remove the problem of heat radiation and reduce energy requirements. A LED lamp is a light-emitting diode (LED) product which is assembled into a lamp (or light bulb) for use in lighting fixtures.

When you compare them to other illumination methods, you will find that LED lighting is by far the most power-saving and smart solution for illumination. Its main advantages are to being:

  • Cooler than incandescent bulbs in operation.
  • Instant on, unlike compact fluorescent bulbs.
  • Broad range of color possibilities, useful for different surgeries.
  • Lowest cost over ownership of all lights.
  • No mercury and minimal toxic materials required.
  • A single lamp represents a reduction of hundreds of pounds of CO2, compared to use of incandescents.

Electrical and thermal design of the LED system or fixture determine how long LEDs will last and how much light they will provide. With improved electrical and thermal robustness of LEDs, ATA LED PLUS service life is up to 50.000 hours, which is 50 times more than halogen bulbs.
