Remote user training (web conferencing)
Two options available: (1) PM Only Preventative Maintenance, where GE covers the servicing, but any parts required are to be paid for by client, this is a lower cost model, but the customer takes the risk of parts cost. (2) Fully inclusive, higher cost, but client is fully covered for service and all parts required.
Service approach includes: (1) Initial Remote Connection, where the client calls a call center in region in local language. GE will remotely diagnose and talk the client through potential fixes, or where a sufficiently available Broadband connection is available, will connect direct to the machine to effect an on-line repair; (2) Field Engineer Visit, where after the above process a site visit is required; (3) Depot Return, where the unit is small and portable (e.g., ECG unit), client returns it to the GE service center for repair and return
Printed user and service manuals will be provided with each piece of equipment.
There is a 30% Advance Payment and 70% payment on shipping. Payments are to be made by Bank Direct Payment
Ventilators are pieces of medical equipment that provide ventilatory support to patients who cannot maintain adequate ventilation or oxygenation on their own due to illness, trauma, congenital defects or drugs.
Ventilators typically consist of a flexible breathing circuit, a pneumatic system, a control system, monitors and alarms. Depending on the type and complexity of the ventilator, the gas is delivered either using a single or dual limb breathing circuit. Most ventilators are microprocessor controlled to control the pressure, volume, and Fi02. Power is supplied from either an electrical wall outlet and/or a battery.
All ventilators require a source of oxygen. Critical care ventilators always require a source of oxygen at high pressure (approximately 4 Bar) while other ventilators require a high pressure or low flow (2-15 l/m) source of oxygen, depending on the individual ventilator. Mechanical ventilators have several operating modes which are chosen by clinicians to define breath initiation and end (i.e., cycle) as well as adjustable parameters such as pressure and flow. Different modes can also provide either full or partial ventilatory support, depending on the individual patient’s condition and clinical requirements.
High Flow Delivery Devices
High-flow oxygen delivery systems, commonly referred to as a High Flow Nasal Cannula (HFNC) supply a given oxygen concentration at a higher than normal flow rate to the patient. These systems generally consist of three parts: the flow generator, an air-oxygen blender, and a heated humidifier. The heated and humidified air-oxygen is delivered to the patient via a specially designed nasal cannula.
The benefits of high-flow oxygen include the improvement of gas exchange and the decrease in the work of breathing. High-flow devices are capable of delivering a maximum flow of 60 l/min and all require a high-pressure source of air and oxygen at approximately 4 bars.
