Hi Guys,

Have you heard of any new TUV/CE guidelines in regards to medical equipment to "perform a self test atleast every 24 hours".

I am aware of certain anaesthetic machines needing a self test every 12 hours , but for some devices like incubators, patient monitors etc it may not be possible to turn off especially while it is being used on a patient.

Apparently there will be pop up message to say - "self test due" every 24 hours (this will annoy nurses & users) and a power off/on will be needed in most devices so the switching circuits can be tested.

Any info on above would be much appreciated.

If such a regulation exists, and I have to say I have not heard anything about it, but I would have thought that most processor based systems should be able to do a self test in the background without any visible signs that it is actually happening. I think you may find that many systems already do this hence the occasional error messages that appear.
