The Medical Equipment Maintenance: User Maintenance Checklist Pulse Oximeters
How does it work?
mobile app is intended to be a guide for the medical equipment user to carry out basic maintenance tasks. 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 pulse oximeter is a device that non-invasively monitors the oxygen saturation of a patient's blood. It measures the amount of oxygen in a patient s arterial blood during operations and diagnosis. This level of oxygen, or oxygen saturation is often referred to SpO2, measured in %, and this is displayed on the pulse oximeter. A pulse oximeter also displays pulse rate.
