手術燈 (無影燈) 是手術室 (OR) 不可或缺的結構要素。許多製造手術燈的企業，也同時製造整合OR的另1個要素──手術用吊桿。
Surgical lighting is an integral component of every operating room (OR). In the past, surgical lighting was manufactured by companies that did not offer full integration solutions for the OR. Surgical lighting was included in integrated OR packages due to strategic relationships and mutual agreements between the surgical lighting manufacturer and the integrated OR manufacturer. Many companies that manufacture surgical lighting also manufacture surgical booms, another common component of an integrated OR. This has led to the entry of traditionally surgical lighting and boom manufacturers into the integrated OR market.
Surgical booms were introduced to the operating room (OR) environment in the 1990s. Initially, surgical booms were installed in order to reduce the clutter caused by having multiple carts surrounding the surgeon and the operating team.
Many facilities have not yet upgraded their lighting system, meaning that there is still a relatively large halogen installed base, which is helping drive the growth of LED light systems. LED surgical lights require a higher initial investment than their halogen counterparts; however, LED surgical lights also provide higher light intensity at a lower wattage than halogen lights, resulting in lower energy consumption. The longer life span and lower cost of operation of LED surgical lights ultimately results in a much smaller total cost of ownership, creating a high demand for such systems.
The proliferation of construction of specialty OR suites and hybrid OR suites, both of which require more surgical booms than a typical OR, has also induced growth in the number of units sold. Surgical booms are also being used for less traditional purposes such as holding up surgical monitors. As the average number of monitors in the OR continues to increase, the number of surgical booms will as well. Surgical booms reduce the area of restricted access to the patient by both creating a smaller footprint and having the ability to mobilize.
