Multi gas anaesthetic analysers monitor hospital work areas

Quantitech : 31 May, 2007  (New Product)
Two new infrared anaesthetic gas analysers for monitoring workplaces in hospitals have been launched by Quantitech.
Both instruments are a development of the popular InfraRan portable gas detector.
Measuring four anaesthetic gases (Nitrous Oxide, Desflurane, Isoflurane and Sevoflurane) one model provides individual measurements for any of the gases, whilst the other offers simultaneous readings for two gases (Nitrous Oxide or Sevoflurane with either Desflurane or Isoflurane).

Occupational exposure to anaesthetic gases can lead to a variety of both acute and chronic effects and consequently it is vitally important that regular monitoring takes place in order to ensure that unacceptable concentrations have not arisen as a result of either poor practice or faulty equipment.

In the past, problems have arisen as a result of spillages, faulty or worn equipment, imperfect fitting of facemasks, failure to utilise scavenging equipment correctly, or inadvertent leaks arising from breathing equipment that is no longer connected to a patient.

Regular monitoring ensures that these problems are detected so that timely remedial action can be taken.

Weighing just 8.2kg the InfraRan incorporates a sample pump so that operators are able to move around and take almost instantaneous measurements in ppm.
The new analysers will be of great interest to anaesthetists, operating department practitioners, theatre resource managers, technical services managers, facilities management staff and anyone responsible for piped medical gases.
