Ventilator testers are a vital part of critical care within the healthcare sector, their importance to clinicians behind the scenes during the Covid-19 pandemic could not be understated, not just in the UK but across the world. Ventilator testers are a specialist form of gas flow analyser in that they allow biomedical engineers and medical equipment manufacturers to check that their equipment is working accurately and delivering the correct level of ventilation a seriously ill patient’s need. These instruments are not limited to testing only ventilators, but can also be used to check pressure gauges, anaesthesia machines, flow meters and surgical suction devices.
EBME technicians within the NHS use ventilator testers to check that ventilators are working correctly, these ventilators are then used to keep patients alive so the importance of these devices working correctly and accurately cannot be understated. Regular calibration is an absolute necessity at least once a year, which allows hospitals to be confident their life saving equipment is in good working order
