Every day, thousands of people undergo surgery. Some surgeries are routine, uncomplicated, outpatient cases- quick and virtually painless. Other surgeries are extensive, life or death cases, which can last hours.
Some surgeries are medically necessary- open-heart surgery, brain surgery or caesarean delivery- while others are elective- such as cosmetic enhancements, vision corrective surgery or a biopsy.
Regardless of what type of surgery is being performed, every instance is equally significant.
Surgery where anesthesia is required is a very serious experience for the patient, the surgeon and the anesthesiologist. It can be a stressful time as well as an emotional one. But there should be some solace in knowing that the anesthesia machine that will be used to induce temporary unconsciousness is in perfect working condition.
So how do you know if the anesthesia machine in use is in perfect working condition and why is it important?
An anesthesia machine supplied by a company such as Heartland Medical, assures the medical equipment has been under extensive examination and inspection until it meets the manufacturer’s factory specifications. It has been tested, assessed and approved for resale by factory trained biomedical engineers and it is backed by a warranty.
