Hello, people.
We're looking at these ventilators considering a purchase for a children's ICU. Both of them look fine as regards the spec. Has anyone bought either of these, and have practical experience they'd like to share?

I'm interested in how the staff take to them, any unexpected glitches, and what company support is like.

Many thanks,
Moira

No-one prepared to admit to loving/hating these vents? PM me if you don't want the world to know!

Hi
We have the GE Carestations on site. In general the clinical staff are happy with them, just took a little time for them to become familar with there functionality.
We have been suffering with some annoying issues;
Water trap O ring being lost during CSSD.
Nuisance alarms, PEEP and Leak (which we are still waiting to "have fixed" in the next software revision).
The biggest plus has to be the paramagnetic O2 sensor.

On the service side, I have attended the technical service course and I think it will be easier for us PM.


I've run out of desk space.... now where am I supposed to bang my head??

Thanks, Paul, that's all useful.

Our CSSD is moving off-site, so if we go for these, I'll make sure I have plenty of spare water trap 'O' rings!

Cheers, Moira
