A typical hospital room houses a variety of to help care for patients. This equipment can include an IV stand. An is a key piece of medical equipment that allows healthcare providers to easily and effectively administer intravenous treatments to patients. There are a variety of different types of IV stands available on the market, and each has its own set of benefits and drawbacks. It is important for healthcare providers to select the right type of IV stand for the specific needs of their patients.
IV stands are an important part of the healthcare industry. They are often used to provide patients with medications and other treatments. IV stands can also be used to help patients recover from surgery or an illness. There are a number of different types of IV stands available. Some stands are designed for use in a hospital or medical setting. Others are designed for use in the home.
When selecting an IV stand, it is important to consider the needs of the patient. The stand should be adjustable to ensure a comfortable fit. It is also important to make sure that the stand is stable and can support the weight of the equipment.
When a patient is admitted to a hospital, one of the first things that is usually done is to start an intravenous (IV) line. This line is used to give the patient fluids and medications. In the past, nurses would have to hold the IV bag in their hands while they gave the medication or fluid to the patient. This often caused fatigue and hand cramps.
Nowadays, most hospitals have IV stands. is a piece of equipment that holds the IV bag up so that the nurse does not have to hold it. This allows the nurse to give the medication or fluid to the patient more easily and quickly. The IV stand also helps to keep the IV line in the correct position, which helps to ensure that the medication or fluid goes into the patient's vein.
The nurse can more easily and quickly give the medication or fluid to the patient.
The IV stand helps to keep the IV line in the correct position, which helps to ensure that the medication or fluid goes into the patient's vein.
The IV stand is helpful for nurses who are working on multiple patients at the same time.
The IV stand is a safe way to give medications and fluids to patients.
When it comes to intravenous therapy, there are a variety of different types of IV stands available on the market. Some of these stands are designed for hospital or clinic use, while others are made for home use. The most common type of IV stand is the mobile stand, which is designed to be moved from room to room. This stand typically has a three-legged base and a horizontal bar that supports the IV bag. Another type of stand is the floor stand, which is designed to be placed in a fixed location, such as a bedside table. This stand typically has a four-legged base and a vertical pole that supports the IV bag. The third type of stand is the wall-mounted stand, which is designed to be attached to a wall. This stand typically has a two-legged base and a vertical pole that supports the IV bag. Finally, there is the tabletop stand, which is designed to be placed on a table or countertop. This stand typically has a three-legged base and a horizontal bar that supports the IV bag.
IV stands are an important part of hospital equipment, but they can also be dangerous if not used correctly. Here are a few tips on how to use an IV stand safely:
Make sure the stand is stable before you start to use it.
always use the safety straps to keep the stand in place.
Make sure the IV tubing is clear of kinks before you start to flow fluid.
Make sure the patient is stable before you start to give them medication or fluid.
Keep a close eye on the fluid level in the bag, and make sure to replace it when it gets low.
Make sure the patient is not moving around too much, or the IV stand could move and cause injury.
Dispose of the stand and tubing properly when you are finished using them.
Including product grade, price, weight, size, and installation interface, whether it needs to be lifted or lowered. Based on this information, it is generally possible to judge what kind of medical equipment trolley is needed to cooperate with.
Yes. This global standard is also the national standard of our country, referred to as IEC60601 for short.
People's Republic of China National Standard GB9706.15-2008/IEC60601-1- 1-1:2000 Medical Electrical Equipment Part 1-1: General Safety Requirements.
Juxtaposition standards: safety requirements for medical electrical systems.
Basic requirements for medical equipment trolleys:
Can't fall on a 10-degree slope;
After the brakes are locked, the cart cannot move on a 10-degree slope;
Capable of carrying loads up to 4 times the safety factor.
Electric lifts are naturally a good feature, but there are pros and cons.
Without electricity, it's more troublesome, especially in a hospital environment, where the safest way is actually mechanical lifting.
If mechanical lifting is less labor-intensive, there is no need to use electricity at all.
However, some special cases may require electricity, including ophthalmic equipment, which requires precise height adjustment; in some environments, the remote control is required to adjust the lift.
If the desktop needs to be opened frequently, naturally it is best to have a convenient lid, which is best replaced with a drawer;
The desktop of the medical equipment cart is generally not recommended to have a lid, otherwise, there will be gaps on the desktop, and if there are stains, bacteria, it is difficult to clean.
In addition, important items, especially electronic products, cannot be placed in the basement of the desktop with gaps. If water leaks, the circuit will burn out. Therefore, it is recommended that the desktop is not at any risk.
Aluminum alloy: strong, but generally too rudimentary in shape, mainly used for supporting the structure inside the desktop. Powder spraying or sandblasting for surface treatment.
Stainless steel: Stronger, but generally too rudimentary in shape, mainly used for supporting the structure inside the desktop. Brushed or sandblasted for surface treatment.
ABS: The most common engineering plastic on the market. Advantages: hard, high density, low price; disadvantages: very heavy, poor pressure resistance.
If the mold is of good quality, you can use plastic to match the color directly, and the surface can be a smooth mirror or textured. The advantage is that the surface color will not be damaged with long-term use.
However, low-grade molds or 3D printed or engraved desktops often have many defects on the surface and need to be treated with spray paint. The disadvantage is that after the paint falls off, the appearance will be severely damaged.
You can gently scrape the ABS Medical Cart with a knife. If other colors appear, it means that the plastic surface has been painted.
ABS+PC: lightweight, heat resistance, wear resistance, toughness and impact resistance, etc., better impact resistance, and high toughness.
The surface treatment is the same as ABS, it is better to use the color of the material itself, painting is not recommended.
Medical equipment carts generally need to put computers, monitors, printers, scanners, and other equipment, and at least 5 wiring slots need to be reserved.
The keyboard tray of the medical equipment cart actually needs to carry more than just a keyboard. During normal use, most people will put their hands or the whole body on the tray, and the weight at this time is at least 30kg.
Therefore, the weight of the keyboard tray needs to be more than 30kg. However, in order to save costs, most of the trolleys on the market use ball bearings, and the restrictions on the installation methods on the carts, their total load capacity is far less than 30kg, and it is very easy to break.
In addition, the disadvantage of using ball bearings is that the position of the keypad holder is very difficult to fix on the cart, and the hand is placed on it, the tray moves back and forth, resulting in inefficient typing.
The weight and design of the medical device cart base determine the stability and safety of the entire cart. If the base is light and small, the cart will easily tip over. Medical trolleys need to be satisfied on a 10-degree slope, plus all the load, can not be dumped at any angle.
Therefore, well-designed carts mostly use metal structures at the bottom and even add an additional 5~10kg counterweight to ensure the safety of the cart. Low-cost carts often use only plastic structures for the entire base, which poses a great safety risk.
The medical equipment cart itself is an auxiliary device, and its main mission is to carry medical equipment, computers, printers, etc. placed on it. Therefore, the color of the cart is recommended in light colors such as gray and white. Highlight the characteristics of medical equipment itself and cannot be overtaken by the crowd.
Many customers like to hide the battery in the base or in the desktop for aesthetics. But in developed countries such as the United States and Germany, most of the batteries are placed outside the cart, and doctors can see it at any time. Place it outside the cart. If there is an abnormality, the doctor can detect it the first time to avoid further loss.
Big casters encounter wires, small steps, and it's easy to go over, and the grade is a little higher.
However, oversized casters can cause the center of the cart to be high and easy to tip over. Therefore, large casters need to be rotated under safe conditions.
Gas springs and casters are the most important core parts of medical equipment carts. Due to the need for long-term movement and wear, the service life of the trolley will be greatly shortened if improperly selected. Low-grade products often choose unbranded suppliers. If possible, it's best to find out with the cart supplier. Well-designed carts generally have no other parts to damage, and the regular manufacturer's warranty period is at least 2 years. Manufacturers that use high-quality core components have a shelf life of 5 or 10 years.
The most professional medical trolley manufacturers in Europe and America use foot control to lift and lift. The main reason is that doctors, especially operating room doctors, need to touch patients and even wounds with their hands and need to keep their hands clean. If you need to adjust the height by hand, it increases the risk of infection. There are no restrictions on civilian carts in this regard.
As the world's healthcare industry continues to innovate and evolve, there is a growing variety of assistive devices for the elderly and those with limited mobility. And the most popular and cost-effective products in the world should have a place for electric wheelchairs.
Electric wheelchairs are transformed and upgraded from traditional manual wheelchairs by superimposing high-performance power drives, intelligent control devices, batteries and other components.
The new generation of intelligent wheelchair, with a manually operated intelligent controller, can drive the wheelchair to complete the functions of forward, backward, steering, standing and lying down. It is a high-tech combination of modern precision machinery, intelligent numerical control, engineering mechanics and other fields. Technology products.
The fundamental difference with traditional electric scooters, battery-powered vehicles and bicycles is that electric wheelchairs have intelligent control controllers. Depending on the operation method, there are rocker type controllers, and controllers with various switches, such as head or blowing suction systems. The latter is mainly used for severely disabled people with upper and lower limb disabilities. Today, electric wheelchairs have become indispensable mobility tools for the elderly and disabled people with reduced mobility. They are suitable for a wide range of subjects. As long as the user has clear consciousness and normal cognitive ability, using a power wheelchair is a good choice, but requires a certain amount of space to move around.
There are a wide variety of wheelchairs on the market, which can be divided into aluminum alloy, light material and steel by material.
Electric wheelchairs can be divided into lead-acid battery-driven and aluminum battery-driven electric wheelchairs by battery.
Electric wheelchairs can be divided into general wheelchairs and special wheelchairs according to the type of use. Special wheelchairs can be divided into leisure sports wheelchairs, electric wheelchairs, stair climbing wheelchairs, etc., which are designed according to different needs of users.
Wide audience. Compared with traditional wheelchairs, the powerful functions of electric wheelchairs are not only suitable for the old and frail, but also for patients with severe disabilities. Stability, long-lasting power and adjustable speed are the unique advantages of electric wheelchairs.
Convenience. Traditional hand-pulled wheelchairs must be pushed and pulled by human power. If there is no one around to take care of it, you will have to push the wheels yourself. Electric wheelchairs are different. As long as it is fully charged, it can be easily operated without the need for family members to accompany you throughout the whole process.
Environmental protection. Electric wheelchairs use electric start, which is more environmentally friendly and easier to use than manual wheelchairs.
Safety. The production technology of electric wheelchairs is becoming more and more mature, and the braking equipment on the vehicle can only be produced after being tested and qualified by professionals for many times. The chances of losing control of the electric wheelchair are close to zero.
Use electric wheelchairs to enhance self-care. Using a power wheelchair, you can consider performing daily activities such as grocery shopping, cooking and ventilation. One person plus a power wheelchair can basically do what ordinary people can do. Such training can be very helpful to the physical and mental state of patients with limited mobility. Allowing patients to participate in simple activities in their daily lives, rather than lying in bed every day and needing help or pushing a wheelchair wherever they want to go, also helps them find joy in life and gain a sense of accomplishment. This training also helps with their re-socialization after recovery.
Electromagnetic brake: Only with electricity can the brake be applied, so be sure to pay attention to safety when using it.
tires: always pay attention to whether the tire pressure is normal. This is the most basic check operation before each use.
Seat cover and backrest: Wash the seat cover and leather backrest with warm water and diluted soapy water to extend the service life of the electric wheelchair.
Lubrication and general maintenance: Use lubricants frequently to maintain the wheelchair, but do not use too much to avoid oil stains on the floor. If the frequency of use is high, you need to check the screws and screws frequently to make sure they are secure.
Normally, please wipe the body with water, avoid placing the electric wheelchair in a humid place and avoid knocking the controller, especially the rocker; when handling the electric wheelchair, please protect the controller strictly, and when the controller is contaminated by food or drink, please clean it immediately and wipe it with a diluted cleaning solution with a cloth, avoid using cleaning agents containing alcohol or other ingredients.
The above is the basic introduction to the product electric wheelchair.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) examination has become a common imaging examination method. MRI, as a new imaging examination technology, will not affect human health, but six types of people are not suitable for MRI examination: installation Persons with pacemakers, persons with or suspected metal foreign bodies in the eyeballs, persons with aneurysm silver clip ligation, persons with internal objects or metal prostheses, critically ill patients with life-threatening conditions, patients with claustrophobia, etc. Do not bring monitoring equipment, rescue equipment, etc. into the MRI examination room. In addition, pregnant women who are less than 3 months pregnant should not have an MRI examination.
Nuclear magnetic resonance is very safe. Although there are two words nuclear magnetic resonance, everyone can rest assured. The principle of nuclear magnetic resonance is the magnetic field produced by the machine. It mainly uses electromagnetic waves to perform inspections and present the inspection results. The magnetic field produced by nuclear magnetic resonance does not show radiation, which means that there is no radiation. It will not cause cancer, and it is a very safe and efficient inspection method. There are fewer stretcher products that can be used in the MRI room, such as stainless steel ambulance stretchers and carbon fiber scoop stretchers.
Although there is no radiation for MRI, there are certain precautions, otherwise it may lead to deviations in the inspection results and waste of inspection fees. The first is to remove all the metal accessories worn before the inspection, such as gold and silver jewelry, mechanical watches, metal buttons, etc., otherwise the presence of these metals will interfere with the magnetic field generated by the nuclear magnetic resonance. In addition, if the internal organs are checked, the patient needs to be checked on an empty stomach, not to eat anything but drinking water, and the more water you drink, the clearer the boundaries between different organs and the clearer the image. Wearing earplugs is also very necessary, because MRI is a magnetic field that will generate a lot of noise during the examination. Therefore, in order to avoid hearing loss and emotional instability due to interference, you can wear earplugs to keep quiet.
The use of magnetic resonance equipment will effectively drive the hospital to develop new clinical services and technologies, improve medical technology and diagnosis and treatment, and truly achieve early detection, early diagnosis, and early treatment of diseases, and provide better medical services to the general public.
