Hi

Would anyone have the technical Manual for the Cheiron Victoria Suction Pump?

A ward in the hospital used it without the 2L Jar. We have opened it and there seems to be some sort of filter or pump at the end leaking, but we are unsure if this contaminated water or if it is some sort of oil within the device. So we are looking to see whats inside of it!

Thanks

I don't know that pump ... but I doubt that a small one like that uses oil. frown

In other words - it will be contaminated. So you need to:-

1) Find out (from medical staff) what patient fluids have been pulled into the pump

2) Decide whether the pump is worth saving

3) Wear gloves (and maybe eye protection) if you decide to strip down the pump

In one place I worked it was "policy" to incinerate flooded pumps when blood had been involved, as well as an ever-changing list of "nasties" ... pseudomonas being one that I recall.


If you don't inspect ... don't expect.

"fluid" inside and you don't know what = treat as contaminated and dispose accordingly.


Never under-estimate the predictability of stupidity

You're right, of course, David. Policy-wise that has to be the best approach. smile

However ... I must admit that, in my work for "private" organisations (overseas clinics, and so forth), I have always been successful in bringing flooded pumps back into service ... never needing the yellow* bag, and avoiding the long walk to the incinerator, and what-have-you. Sometimes - but not always - new parts were required.

In some situations it can be a case of "needs must". frown

You just have to be careful. And I have survived thus far. whistle
