Can anyone recommend a source where I might be able to obtain medical equipment generic specifications? Thank you.

I assume you mean for ventilators?

I suspect that Angus is looking for a complete set suitable for a tender document, John. frown

Am I right, Angus? What do you actually need ... a spec for each type of equipment in a hospital?

And what level of quality are you aiming at? After all, a really generic spec could be something like:-

"Must be suitable for [insert purpose or clinical procedure here]". smile

Can't tell a lie, Geoff. Yes, I am. Not sure where to start mate.

Well, that's an easy one ... you start with a list (and build it up from there). smile

What have you got so far? think

As you may know, there have been a few threads on here that have touched on this in the past. But none bore any real fruit, as far as I am aware.

ECRI gets mentioned from time to time; and of course there are a few companies (consultancies) here in the UK - MJM, Hiltron et al - that would be no doubt happy to sell you a set of specs.

Some of the WHO stuff (guidelines) is pretty good. Also, be aware of what the MHRA has to offer.

Other than that, I suspect that Neil might be looking for another project. whistle

PM sent.
