Bair Hugger 505 parts Ed SWM Yesterday at 04:02 PM
Hi All,
Was wondering if anyone has any spares for the 3M Bair Hugger 505 units lying around in a storeroom somewhere? A lot of the parts have been discontinued but we still look after a number of units in the veterinary environment.
Very best regards

Clinical Entrepreneur Programme Alf 23/09/20 1:48 PM
The Clinical Entrepreneur training programme is a workforce development programme for clinical and non-clinical NHS staff, run by NHS England and NHS Improvement’s Innovation, Research and Life Sciences group.

The application process is open for this educational workforce training and development programme designed for healthcare professionals who want to develop and scale their most innovative ideas for patient benefit.

The programme was launched in 2016 and has already recruited over 500 individuals including Doctors, Dentists and Healthcare Scientists, Nurses and Midwives, Allied Health Professionals, and Pharmacists from a range of diverse backgrounds. Places on this prestigious programme will be offered, through a competitive process, to applicants who have developed clinical innovations to improve patient care and support service redesign through commercial and non-commercial enterprises.

Please see link below

https://www.england.nhs.uk/aac/what...linical-entrepreneur-training-programme/

This may be a great opportunity for members of the EBME community which in my opinion possesses a wealth of determined and talented individuals and teams, the accent on determination in as much as novelty plays a much smaller part in the success of a product as compared to the hard work involved in creating it.

In the words of Edison "innovations are 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration"

Re: The EBME Expo is changing dates John Sandham 23/09/20 1:00 PM
The EBME Expo has now been postponed to 2021. See: https://www.ebme.co.uk/home/press/ebme-expo-postponed-to-2021

New dates announced are 30 June - 1 July 2021, at the Marshall Arena, Milton Keynes

These new dates provide us with enough time to feel absolutely confident of hosting a fantastic event with a huge turnout. A number of vaccination programs look likely to be rolled out in Q1 2021, which will also help to alleviate any concerns.

We will be announcing a series of online webinars, which we will release more information on very shortly, to ensure that our valued delegates, speakers and exhibitors can continue to engage between now and the EBME Expo in 2021.

Re: Using an anaesthetic machine to ventilate covid-19 ChazMich 19/09/20 3:55 PM
Hello umish,

This is easily done and I have used anaesthesia machines as ICU ventilators.

Be sure to:
1. Use a new disposable circuit
2. Take off any agent vaporizers
3. Place the CO2 absorber in the 'Off Line' position
4. Use a HME
5. A FGF of 6-8 lpm is adequate for average adults

Re: Thermometers validation jonbe 14/09/20 11:44 AM
Hi Geoff I can only speak for our departments Circa 2012 era three examples all require 5V dc @ 2W consumption(I presume on mark/space ratio). But the two units once heated on mains PSU, ran quite happily for eight hours 1Amp (fast) fuse protected as male jacks seem a risk! I believe in 9600 there is a built In undervoltage alarm.
Thanks

Re: GE MAC 5500 ECG machine Geoff Hannis 13/09/20 4:37 PM
I don't know about the 5500, but on the 5000 there were a couple of round RS-232 connectors on the back.

At least one of those was intended (I believe) for connection to a modem. So some sort of file transfer protocol must have been available to transmit the (presumably) ECG data.

Although much "fun" could no doubt be had in trying to recreate a printed output from such a (serial) data stream, surely it would be better to spend whatever time is available in fixing the initial problem with the built-in thermal printer?

What problems are you experiencing? Still the same one?

Re: Innervator Error code 26 Geoff Hannis 08/09/20 5:07 PM
... often seen on eBay, though.

That's interesting about the transformer. I wonder why they didn't include Error 26 in the manual. Omitted by mistake, I suspect.

Re: Medical Device Regulatory News MichaelA 08/09/20 3:57 PM
Thanks for the link.

From what I understand, for medical devices which have a CE mark, nothing much will change until 2023 (assuming that the manufacturers of those devices can obtain a CE mark - currently through the MDD, soon under the MDR).

Custom and in-house manufactured devices will need to meet the requirements of the UK 2002 Medical Device Regulations. I expect that these will be aligned with the EU MDR etc in due course once the new UK Medicines and Medial Devices Bill has been passed. There may however, at some point, be some divergence between the EU and UK medical device regulations. If/when this happens, manufacturers would have to comply with two different regimes to get access to both markets.

As stated in the guidance, there will be an additional requirement for medical devices to be registered with the MHRA following a certain grace period.

Re: Biomedical Engineering Degree Alf 08/09/20 11:43 AM
Yes John

Avensys and Eastwood Park, both excellent training providers,

I have two staff undertaking an apprenticeship with Avensys presently and one member of staff training at Eastwood Park. I will encourage all to progress to gaining a Biomedical Engineering Degree. The benefits to the individual and department are huge, well worth the investment.

I would advise any new department manager to establish training initiatives in their budget as a priority.

As for on line courses see https://www.e-lfh.org.uk/ Lots of clinical, non-clinical and mandatory training here, some good training on devices and some excellent IPEM radiation/imaging training.

Re: Experiences with Rip-Off-Manufacturers? John Sandham 02/09/20 9:17 AM
I think that the majority of manufacturers do not 'rip-off' Hospitals, but there are a small minority who could be accused of doing that (without naming and shaming - I agree with Dave).

Those that do overcharge, or will not provide technical training - service manuals - spare parts, can be easily identified and when it comes to buying new equipment, you can then (before buying) negotiate better terms, or even 'blacklist' the suppliers that won't play ball, through the buying department (Approved suppliers list).

If the playing field is laid out by both the buyer and the supplier, the relationship can be a co-operative arrangement, a partnership. and both parties benefit.
