Medical Equipment Maintenance: User Maintenance Checklist Nebulizers Mobile App
The Medical Equipment Maintenance: User Maintenance Checklist Nebulizers mobile app is intended to be a guide for the medical equipment user to carry out basic maintenance tasks.
How does it work?
As most equipment problems are either simple or user-related it is the aim that the better care and regular maintenance enabled by this manual will have a significant positive effect on the delivery of healthcare. The maintenance tasks are placed in daily and weekly checklists. This will help in planning time for them to be carried out. In most cases, for daily tasks the beginning of the working day will be best, but any time will suit as long as the job is done. For weekly tasks, it may be easier to allocate a different day for each type of equipment, to spread the load through the week. A simple timetable with the person responsible can be used as a reminder.A nebulizer is a device used to administer medication in the form of a mist inhaled into the lungs. Nebulizers are commonly used for treatment of cystic fibrosis, asthma and other respiratory diseases. The reason for using a nebulizer for medicine to be administered directly to the lungs is that small aerosol droplets can penetrate into the narrow branches of the lower airways. Large droplets would be absorbed by the mouth cavity, where the clinical effect would be low.
