Has anyone opened the device? We have had a look inside and cant see how the seals would be lost.

Fisher and Paykel have designed this product to get as much money out of the NHS as possible, I tried to get a small part for a flowmeter that is only available from the US and cost less than £10.

Fisher and Paykel will state you have to buy the whole flowmeter at £200.

We warned our trust against it 7 years ago, but they were duped into thinking it would be a cost-saving, if one breaks down after a couple of years, the alternative is a new unit.

Sounds like a familiar story ... biomed advises against purchase ... but still gets lumbered with supporting it. frown

Initial price may have been a "bargain" ... but Life-Cycle (Whole Life) costs become "onerous"; yes, that sounds about right.
