This Comparison of manufacturers dimensions and volumes for Sterile Syringes was shared (now in our downloads area), because of concerns about stocks of syringes running low, and therefore being able to find suitable alternatives.

Covid-19: Precautions/ cleaning - ventilators williamss 31/03/20 3:08 PM
What precautions are the hospitals in the UK taking for anaesthesia machines, ventilators etc. Our hospital is leaning towards covering our anaesthesia machines in plastic to prevent cleaning once the Covid 19 patients operation is completed and left the room.

Is this adequate or hopefully there are better ideas out there.

Re: Bird Mk7A respirator Geoff Hannis 30/03/20 5:56 PM

Maybe ... but only in skilled hands.

Name changes? I still haven't got used to Ohmeda. LOL

But in passing, perhaps I should record that the Bird Mark 7 uses a clever design.

Re: Commissioning a Covid-19 field hospital Geoff Hannis 30/03/20 4:05 PM

OK, let's try another tack ... what, exactly (or in general terms if you prefer) is the job?

Admin is important ... as is preparation and planning - surely your RAF training taught you all that, John. Otherwise, all you end up with is chaos, duplication of (and wasted) effort etc., etc.

Re: Solder - Lead vs Lead Free stevel98 28/03/20 9:28 AM
Never gave it a thought. Lead/tin all the way for a simpler and neater job without too much heat to compromise surrounding items or boards.

Having said that, faulty boards were mainly just replaced, so it was largely attachments or the occasional dry joint under the soldering iron.

90% of a good solder joint is about being comfortable and the rest with decent tips. 👍

Re: Hello.. stevel98 28/03/20 9:19 AM
No Geoff, that was on the S600. The S800 had a conventional rear wheel drive layout.

791cc, twincam, four carbs, dry sump, roller bearing crank, it sounded like todays F1 cars. If you ever get the chance to drive one, jump at it! 😎

Re: A New Deal for Agency Techs Geoff Hannis 26/03/20 12:46 PM

It looks like Durbin Engineers' website is down ... does anyone have any news about my (once) favourite Agency?

Meanwhile, I have heard from various folk about "volunteering" - making a comeback - and so forth; and suspect I am not the only one.

People making such (desperate?) suggestions should bear in mind that the country is now more or less in a state of "lock down" ... and this includes the B&B's. Even the campsites are closed. In fact I wonder how I could carry on these days if I were still of "No Fixed Abode"!

Even the Government has realised that Working from Home (whenever possible) is "the answer" ... and I'm hoping that all those who used to post on here in days gone by (where are those guys - retired?) still look in every day ready to reply to any pleas for advice or what-have-you.

Meanwhile, I shall now be heading out to enjoy my officially sanctioned daily session of physical exercise.

Re: Maquet Servo-I ventilator - circular connector Geoff Hannis 23/03/20 3:53 PM

Parts list sent. smile

I've spent a bit of time looking at on-line catalogues (Lemo, Fischer et al), but have not been able to find the pin configuration you need. frown

You must already know that you can dismount the User Interface (display) - but I guess you still don't get enough distance by doing that.

Maybe you need to sacrifice the cable(s) you have (and order some more), then cut in half and extend.

The thought occurs that perhaps the next generation of Servo-i could use Bluetooth in order to allow separation of the display from the vent. "Not secure", I suppose. OK ... offer longer Control Cables then (or even generic connectors)!

By the way, I can now mention yet again that the CAN Bus (Controller Area Network) was developed by Bosch for use in motor vehicles!
