Optimizing the flow of vacuum in your OR enhances the productivity of your surgical staff by allowing your team to spend their valuable time and effort operating. With this, you protect the patient with less available time, and clinicians have less distraction and better turnaround time in the OR.
With optimum vacuum flow, you will boost the morale of your surgical staff by not distracting or delaying their work with poor suction, reducing requests for repairs or remodels of ORs and procedure suites.
A skilled, certified technician will perform our patented Vac Wash Program during your scheduled OR downtime to optimize your system, giving your patients, OR staff, and budget the best possible outcome.
While the Joint Commission (TJC) and the CMS keep us on our toes with current standards and recommendations they continually roll out, one thing has stayed consistent for healthcare facility managers looking to keep their patients safe:
The need for quality suction equipment, specifically a medical vacuum system.
Suctioning is a critical part of patient care and, in some instances, a potentially life-saving procedure. While the vacuum you create in the pump room makes surgery faster, safer, cleaner, and helps patients breathe more efficiently, vacuum systems like the compressed medical gas systems need regular care.
A medical vacuum pump system is designed to provide a safe, sufficient flow of gas or vacuum and the required pressure.
Before we talk about the various kinds of vacuum pumps and their inspection requirements, we need to consider the most significant challenge most hospitals run into with vacuum systems: what they suck up. The entire piped system is designed to pull just air out of the way but often drags with it fluids, solids, and aerosols that all want to stick to the piping, parts, and the pump's internal components.
