¿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

¿What are the benefits of using UL 1047 certified boards?

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

The UL1047 certification is a fundamental requirement for all sets of equipment that use insulating boards, especially isolated power boards that require high safety standards. The UL1047 certification assures the safety of each member of the establishment, especially those patients who are supported by an electrical panel, through operations requiring isolated power in the health

¿How important is it to check isolated power systems annually?

By |2023-01-04T21:44:14+00:00January 4th, 2023|Isolated Power Systems|

Isolated power systems are an indispensable tool for hospitals, since they are used in operating rooms, intensive care units, cardiac catheterization laboratories, delivery rooms and critical medical areas. Different hospital equipment uses this system for supplying electrical power without physical connection to ground, which reduces the risk of an electric shock and maintains the power

What are the reasons for performing annual maintenance on isolated power systems in hospitals?

By |2021-11-22T17:24:30+00:00November 18th, 2021|Isolation monitors|

In hospital environments, isolated power systems must be maintained annually, since these systems are often found in critical environments such as operating rooms, intensive care units, and emergency departments, where the protection of people and the provision of electricity are critical. The NFPA 99 (Code of Medical Care Facilities), however, recommends conducting an annual inspection

Conductive floors: What effect do they have on medical electrical equipment safety?

By |2021-11-22T17:21:28+00:00November 17th, 2021|Sin categoría|

The critical hospital areas are environments with high electrical risks due to the equipment and procedures that are used there; therefore, the electromedical safety conditions need to be optimal and controlled. Medical electrical equipment is provided with a single connection to a power source, no matter whether it is for diagnosing, treating, or managing a

What are the limits of leakage currents in hospitals?

By |2021-10-12T02:01:14+00:00July 12th, 2021|Isolated Energy Panels, Isolated Power Systems, Isolation monitors|

Electrical leakage current occurs as a result of current flowing through the protective grounding conductor of an electrical installation. It is common for such currents to occur and must be carefully monitored depending on both the installation's safety and the presence of people in the area where such currents occur.  In hospitals, leakage currents are

What is the best way to identify hospital’s isolated power grid failures?

By |2021-06-10T23:18:14+00:00June 10th, 2021|Isolated Energy Panels, Isolated Power Systems, Isolation monitors|

The isolated power grid is a particular type of power distribution used in critical care areas of hospitals; this kind of grid protects patients and medical staff from the dangers of electric shock as a result of leakage currents (micro shocks) during certain medical procedures. As part of their operation, Isolated energy systems are powered

Why is lighting in a surgery room important?

By |2021-10-12T01:23:29+00:00March 31st, 2021|Surgery Lights|

Lighting is an elemental necessity for the operation of surgical areas and the success of the procedures performed there. Therefore, it must have the optimal conditions to carry out the corresponding tasks and contribute to a comfortable atmosphere for patients while guaranteeing efficiency in energy consumption. The lighting in a surgery room is made up
