Defibrillator Testing

Advantage Training from Fluke Biomedical/RaySafe includes scheduled, on-location training events that happen around the world. These training events offer the unique opportunity to learn from experienced instructors and coaches in actual testing situations often with hands-on learning. The scope of training can be customized to fit local needs. Tuition fees may apply, so ask your local Fluke Biomedical/RaySafe representative for more information.

Defibrillators include many more patient parameters, modes of operation and innovative designs than ever before. Among these are temporary transcutaneous pacemakers, AED-like automatic assessment of arrhythmias, and algorithms and circuitry that ensure defibrillation-therapy-energy delivery based on the settings. Older test instruments may not be able to test these newer design capabilities.

Electrical Safety Testing

Start Your Biomedical Engineering Training Today

Electrical safety testing was the first mandate of biomedical engineering, and why biomedical engineering was brought into the hospital as a functional area in the 1970’s. Today there are many electrical safety standards, most of which have been harmonized with the IEC standards found under IEC 60601.

The basis standards (IEC 60601-1 and IEC 62353) are constantly under review and revision. Not only is it hard to keep up, it is also not easy to understand how to apply testing methodologies, or testing limits.
Similarities and differences between tests, terminology, and standards
How to easily perform basic tests; simple solutions for in-depth testing
How automatic test instrument configuration and measurement data collection make testing more efficient
How visually-guided testing with predetermined test limits standardizes work, reduces human error

Gas Flow/Ventilator Testing

Medical Device Technician Training For Gas Flow Testing Is Now Available

Medical gas flow and pressure are produced by many more kinds of medical devices besides ventilators and anesthesia systems. While ventilators and anesthesia systems have specific requirements for complete quality assurance testing, the basics of flow, pressure, and time are fundamental.

Endoscopic insufflators, tracheal and wound suctioning devices, side-stream-sampling gas concentration monitors, flow meters, vacuum pressure gauges, and more are in the inventory of every hospital, clinic, and doctor’s office.

Infusion Pump Testing

Biomedical Equipment Maintenance Training Focused On Infusion Pump Testing

While small hospitals and clinics may include a manageable quantity of infusion pumps, including enteral feeding pumps, syringe pumps, infusion controllers, larger medical facilities often include as high a quantity as 3 infusion devices per bed. This number can reach seemingly un-manageable quantities compared to the biomedical engineering department staff available to perform medical device quality assurance testing.

Recently the high incidence of failure across all makes and models of infusion devices has caused the US FDA to focus its attention on reducing the un-managed risk to the patient posed by these failures. Batch-testing may provide a more economically acceptable method for completing tests.
