The hospital should prepare for any emergency case that can come at any time. That’s why hospitals hospital equipment planners play an important role to keep all the essential pieces of medical equipment on hand. To provide complete treatment for patients, there is a need for a standard set of equipment like:
1. Hospital Stretchers
A stretcher is an important apparatus for moving patients who need medical care. The wheel stretcher consists of various frames, racks, and wheels. They play a key role in providing emergency medical services and rescue personnel and military services.
2. Anaesthesia Machines
Anaesthesia Machines are well designed to provide a continuous supply of medical gases that reduces intraoperative patient awareness and recall that control the airway and circulation of breathing.
The new technology Anesthesia Machines come up with important tools such as suction unit, ventilation and patient monitoring device.
3. Defibrillators Devices
Defibrillators are mainly used in the situation of cardiac arrhythmias to restore the heartbeats by sending an electric shock or pulse to the heart. They are mainly used to prevent and correct a heartbeat, an arrhythmia. Also, defibrillators can restore the heart’s beating if the heart suddenly stops.
4. Patient Monitors
A patient monitor is a standard piece of a medical device that comprises one or more monitoring sensors and a screen display that provides and record blood pressure, pulse rate, body temperature during and after surgery. They are important for adult, pediatric and neonatal patients.
Hospital rooms can be easily infected with chemicals, especially the area where medical pieces of equipment are placed. To disinfect such pieces of equipment, autoclave or sterilisers are used.
The machine uses pressure to kill harmful viruses, bacteria, fungi and spores on items that are placed inside a pressure vessel.
6. Fluid and Blanket Warmers
Maintaining body temperature during surgery is important or else it can lead to post-surgical complications such as prolonged hospitalisation, preoperative hypothermia and recovery. To avoid such problems, blanket and fluid warmers are used to maintain body temperature. They help to maintain the body temperature level and prevent hypothermia in physically traumatized or surgical patients.
7. Electrosurgical Units
Electrosurgical Unit or ESU is used in the surgical room to cut tissue and control bleeding by causing coagulation. Also, it is used to control the amount of blood that flow during surgery. The equipment is crucial to singe and minimise blood loss during surgery.
