The Importance of Grounding Systems in Operating Rooms, Angiography, ICU, and Critical Hospital Areas

By |2023-09-19T21:52:59+00:00September 19th, 2023|Isolated Energy Panels, Isolated Power Systems|

In the healthcare sector, electrical safety plays a crucial role in protecting the well-being and integrity of patients and medical personnel. In critical areas such as operating rooms, angiography suites, and intensive care units, extreme measures must be taken to ensure a safe environment. To ensure electrical safety within a hospital, having a grounding system

¿What are the benefits of having an isolated power system in a medical facility?

By |2023-08-31T19:39:54+00:00August 31st, 2023|Isolated Power Systems|

Isolated power systems prevent the exposure of healthcare professionals and patients to electrical medical devices that can malfunction at any time. It is imperative to have a power system that meets the required standards,since it covers important areas such as operating rooms, intensive care, and rooms where anesthetics or other flammable elements are handled.

Conductive floors: ¿Which is the most suitable for this environment?

By |2023-07-18T16:00:38+00:00July 18th, 2023|conductive vinyl flooring|

In hospitals, floors are also protagonists in patient care and the work of medical personnel. The main lining of hospital and clinical areas are vinyl floors or antistatic floors. Conductive flooring (vinyl, laminate, rubber, epoxy flooring, among others) offer advantages needed by healthcare infrastructure. The constant need for cleaning and the high traffic of people

¿How to choose an isolated power system?

By |2023-06-30T15:15:32+00:00June 30th, 2023|Isolated Energy Panels|

Hospital or clinic areas consist of operating rooms and intensive care units, where a wide range of devices is required to provide life support to patients: from electric scalpels to vital signs monitors, to anesthesia stations controlling leakage currents that may reach the patient. For this reason, they must be treated in a special way

¿How can I determine if a conductive floor is functioning properly and what are the maintenance requirements?

By |2023-06-30T15:05:24+00:00June 30th, 2023|conductive vinyl flooring|

In simple terms, static electricity is a natural phenomenon that occurs when there is an excess of energy in a specific object or material. It manifests when this charge is transferred from one object to another, resulting in an electric discharge. According to Zhong Lin Wang, a physicist at the Beijing Nano-energy and Nano-systems Institute,

¿What is the current national and international legislation that deals with isolated power systems?

By |2023-06-14T20:29:08+00:00June 14th, 2023|Isolated Power Systems|

Nowadays, electricity is a vital ally in medicine, however, its use represents a potential danger when caring for a patient.  Statistical studies conducted worldwide have demonstrated that a significant number of accidents and deaths in operating rooms are caused by electrical shocks, leading to various electrobiological phenomena such as ventricular fibrillation. When using these systems,

¿How do I know which hospital isolated power system is the right one?

By |2023-06-14T20:15:51+00:00June 14th, 2023|Isolated Power Systems|

The failure of hospital medical equipment, especially operating room equipment that causes a halt in their activities, is generally due to the fact that an isolated energy power system is not properly installed to sustain the hospitalization of a patient.  An optimal installation of isolated power systems must be done and constant preventive maintenance should

¿Is it important for hospitals to be certified in the use of conductive floors?

By |2023-01-04T21:59:30+00:00January 4th, 2023|conductive vinyl flooring|

Hospitals are facilities where people are at risk from electrical failure, particularly in critical areas, despite the fact that they do not mention it often. In operating rooms, for instance, alcohol can be used as a potentially flammable element, in conjunction with oxygen or in the presence of the patient who will undergo surgery. Because

¿What are the best methods for evaluating conductive vinyl in hospitals?

By |2023-01-04T21:54:56+00:00January 4th, 2023|conductive vinyl flooring|

For electrical safety in the clinical sector, vinyl floors or conductive vinyl are a common and necessary practice, since they not only have antiseptic properties, but also help to route electrical charges away from people and equipment, making them a necessary practice in hospitals.  ¿When it comes to hospitals, how does conductive vinyl work?

¿When monitoring isolated power systems in hospitals, what role do remote indicators play?

By |2023-01-04T21:56:45+00:00January 4th, 2023|Isolated Power Systems|

There are several different types of power failures, the most common of which is an unexpected interruption in a surgical process, the paralysis of a critical area, or the outage of power in general areas. The interruption can last seconds, minutes, or even hours depending on the scope of the damage. This is why the
