This is an interesting topic, and discusses a problem that has not yet been finally (or, at least, universally) addressed and solved (as far as I'm aware). What's the present state of play, I wonder? Has anything changed?
OK, so we're agreed (?) that we "fuse to suit the cable". That's good, but which fuse do we use? 10 Amp?
Bill's post about multiple socket outlets on medical systems ("stacks" and the like, I presume) is also a good one. But what about trailing
multiple socket outlets (Richard's point, I think)? In these days of "risk management", have we now all got rid of these? Especially from operating theatres and similar locations?
Note to Huw:- I feel another "EBME Best Biomed Practice" statement coming on - what news on the Wiki
