The Patient monitor usually works continuously for a long time

The Patient monitor usually works continuously for a long time, and it is easy to cause premature aging or even damage of the parts inside the machine due to the high temperature in the machine. Therefore, we must clean the inside and outside of the machine to ensure that the machine has good heat dissipation and ventilation. In a few months it is necessary to check the strainer on the main unit to clean the dust. At the same time, check the surface of the operation panel and the Patient monitor and remove the dirt with anhydrous alcohol so as not to corrode these important parts. Every six months to a year, the machine shell must be disassembled to remove dust inside the machine. Dust can be used at the same time, "see, smell, touch" and other intuitive methods to check the various modules within the machine, parts. Sensor maintenance and care: Due to the nature of the sensor itself and the location of the patient being probed, it is often a part that is easily damaged and an expensive part. In order to extend their service life and reduce the cost of treatment, we should do a better job of maintaining them.

Frequently communicate with healthcare professionals to guide them in the correct operation and maintenance of Patient monitors and sensors. Can not be folded, the sensor transmission wire; can not fall, touch the sensor probe such as oxygen saturation probe, temperature, invasive blood pressure and other probes. For non-invasive blood pressure cuffs, the host computer cannot measure at this time without strapping on the patient to avoid damaging the inflated airbag. If the Patient monitor needs to be Patient monitored for a long time without Patient monitoring the oxygen saturation, this function can be turned off by adjusting the system configuration. If the machine has this setting or the interface to which the oxygen saturation is connected to the host, the Patient monitor Each sensor is generally connected through an interface to extend the life of the sensor. Sensor probes are easily contaminated with sweat, blood stains, and other dirt. To avoid corrosion of the probe and influence measurement, clean the probe periodically according to the instructions provided in the user's manual.

Improper or even incorrect Patient monitoring system settings can often cause problems for health care workers. For example: There are ECG waveforms without heart rate; no blood pressure can be measured in hypertensive patients; normal parameters are displayed but alarms are kept, etc. These may be due to improper system settings. Therefore, it is necessary to check and maintain the system frequently to ensure the reliability and optimality of Patient monitoring, that is, the optimal configuration. Although there are various Patient monitor types, the specific methods for setting up the system vary, but most of them have the following aspects: The patient information in these messages should pay attention to the "patient type" selection must be correct. Generally divided into adults, children, newborns, they use different measurement programs, if you choose the wrong will affect the accuracy of the measurement, or even impossible to measure. For example, non-invasive blood pressure may not be measured and display an error.
