LPA is proud to introduce our new range of COI compliant lighting, suitable for healthcare facilities.
Cyanosis Observation Index (COI)
Cyanosis refers to a bluish discolouration to the skin and mucous membranes. This is usually caused by low oxygen levels in the red blood cells or by problems getting oxygenated bloody to the body. It is vital for medical staff to be able to reliably detect the onset of cyanosis by visual observation.
For cyanosis observation, medical lighting must adhere to Australian & New Zealand standards AS/NZS 1680.2.5 where the properties of a light source is measured for suitability for visual detection of cyanosis in a patient. The lower the value, the better suited for cyanosis observation; this rating cannot be greater than 3.3.
Our range of COI compliant lighting include downlights, troffers, panels, recessed and surfaced mounted profiles. Our range is designed to minimize glare while providing ample lighting for task-based work. Colour Rendering Index is essential in medical lighting to ensure visual observation is accurate, our range offers CRI>90+.
