#TechTipTuesday Feb. 2, 2021: Ultrasound TEE Probes

是#TechTiptuesday!欢迎参加我们的每周系列,我们向生物医学界成员询问他们维护医疗设备的提示和建议。本周,我们问:“在超声探针方面,您有什么技巧?”

为什么在每次使用之前都要视觉检查T恤探针很重要

This week, we asked J.T. Bailey, Probe Repair Manager for Avante Health Solutions, for his tips on preventing costly ultrasound probe replacement. Read his tips below:

In regards to TEE probes, it is important to visually inspect before every use and disinfection but make sure to pay close attention to the bending neck rubber (BNR). This is not only from a patient safety perspective but could also be a small step to save thousands in repair or replacement costs.

TEE探针上的BNR使得能够发音,但可以说是链中最弱的链接。它只需要一个小针孔,以使流体进入探针并造成严重的内部损害。在具有高级矩阵阵列技术的模型上,这可能是特别昂贵的。

如果灾难性造成灾难性,否则可能是低成本的维修,如果提前捕获,现在可能会更昂贵的维修或更换。
