CGM visits Andar International

20140522_161628_resized
In a recent visit from CGM, CGM representatives, Eddie Chuah and Ken Yang and the Andar International Team discussed current success in the Caribbean. Together Andar and CGM have helped place over 50 beds at Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) in Barbados. Queen Elizabeth Hospital’s main consideration of the length of the manual beds, was no issue for CGM. CGM was able to manufacturer custom manual beds to resolve their concerns. CGM recently built another hospital in China which now places over 12,000 beds in total for all of  their combined hospital facilities.

Breathe New Life into the OR

The Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety recently posted an article on how Healthcare workers in a variety of settings can be exposed to the anesthetic gases that are released or leak out during medical procedures. These gases and vapors are known as waste anesthetic gases (WAGs).

People who work in hospitals in areas such as operating, labor and delivery rooms, recovery rooms, and in remote anesthetic locations such as radiology or post anesthetic care unit, as well, those who work in dental offices and veterinary clinics and animal research facilities may be exposed to waste anesthetic gases.

NIOSH (the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health) reports the effects of high concentration exposures to WAGs include dizziness, feelings of light headiness, nausea, fatigue, headache, irritability, and depression. Other effects include liver and kidney disease.  Exposed workers can experience difficulty with cognitive, perception, judgment, and motor skills placing themselves and others at risk.

Effects of exposure to low concentrations can also include miscarriage, birth defects (genetic damage), and cancer in exposed workers and their spouses (in cases of miscarriages and birth defects).

Exposure to these WAGs occur when:

  • Anesthetic gas may escape when filling refillable vaporizers, particularly if bottles do not have an integrated fused filling adaptor.
  • WAGs may escape during the initial hooking up and checking of the anesthesia system or the scavenging system.
  • WAGs can escape from around the patient’s anesthesia mask, especially if the mask is a poor fit.
  • WAGs can escape from around the patient’s endotracheal tube (ETT) or laryngeal mask airway (LMA) if the cuff is not properly inflated or the wrong size is used.
  • Leaks in the anesthesia system.
  • Leaks in the high pressure system between the nitrous oxide (N2O) cylinder and yoke assembly or between the anesthetic gas column outlets and the N2O hose.
  • When the system is flushed or purged at the conclusion of a medical procedure.

Is it time to change your old anaesthesia machine? Andar International offers the Prima Series by Penlon, the cost-effective and versatile solution for your OR. Click here to request more information.

Certified Pre-Owned Endoscopes

STOP  If you’re thinking about used endoscopes, consider this:

  • Olympus has a variety of NEW platforms that fit most any budget.
  • If you absolutely, positively have to go used, wouldn’t you prefer factory Certified Pre-Owned equipment WITH a full year of factory warranty?

Okay, so you’ve bought used in the past and they were okay.  But speak the truth.  They looked and felt just a little different from what you were used to.  That’s because while it may have said Olympus on the label, all the parts, glues and lubricants that the third party vendor used to make your unit “sellable” were not Olympus.  Anyone can copy the mechanicals of the parts these days but it’s the proprietary materials (and close tolerances) that makes an Olympus an Olympus.

Check us out first.  You won’t be disappointed.
