Corepoint™ Scientific Blood Bank Refrigerators and Plasma Freezers

By American BioTech Supply on Apr 12, 2022 1:31:16 PM

Blood is central to life. And since blood cannot be manufactured or produced, donors are fully relied upon to supply and sustain blood reserves. But once blood is acquired, how is it stored? This core question is being re-examined in the medical world as questions surface surrounding the safety and preservation ability of blood storage equipment. Blood storage certainly deserves a closer look.

Three Ways CME Can Support New Equipment Biomedical Check-In’s

By Cindy Juhas on Apr 7, 2022 10:51:12 AM

Opening a new medical facility on-time is always challenging. An MCD (Medical Construction & Design) survey in 2018 said that less than 50% of all projects open on time. If we did that poll today, it would even be less, given all the supply chain delays. One common problem when opening any healthcare facility is completing all the biomedical asset-tagging and ESIs (Electrical Safety Inspections) required in a timely fashion. These biomedical check-ins cannot happen until items are delivered and installed in rooms, which is typically near the end of the project. New healthcare facilities have anywhere from 1,000-4,000 pieces of new equipment that require biomedical attention.

Covid-19 and the Ukraine-Russia War Continue to Challenge the Healthcare Equipment Supply Chain

By Cindy Juhas on Mar 15, 2022 11:55:05 AM

The Covid-19 pandemic has certainly wreaked havoc on the healthcare equipment supply chain by increasing lead times, prices, and freight costs. Prior to the pandemic CME Corp recorded lead times for equipment between three and eight weeks on average. This week, lead times reached 12-20 weeks on average, more than tripling since the onset of the pandemic. Most industry leaders are expecting the supply chain to start to recover by the end 2022. What effect might the Ukraine-Russia War have on this recovery? It is still too early to tell what the long-term effects might be but there are already problems starting to surface. Here are three areas to watch:

Is Your AED Approved?

By CME Corp Staff on Mar 7, 2022 1:25:59 PM

The FDA will now ensure all Automated External Defibrillators in use currently and all future AED devices are reliable life-saving devices. Premarket approval is now required by the FDA for manufacturers of AEDs

In the past, many AEDs were manufactured using inadequate components, insufficient validation of the manufacturing processes along with design issues. In 2013, the FDA alerted users of certain models of AEDs manufactured between 2005 and 2012 that their AED may not deliver a shock to the patient in an emergency situation. Faulty AEDs can result in patient injury or prevent patient rescue.

The Importance of PFT in 'Long COVID'

By NDD on Jan 5, 2022 2:52:09 PM

There is a clear need to better understand and monitor the long-term effects of COVID-19, and that starts with increasing PFT availability by adding testing equipment wherever possible.

Much attention has been focused on the ever-rising death toll from the COVID-19 pandemic. Of course, the “light in the darkness” is that, thanks to the heroic efforts of physicians, respiratory therapists, nurses, and the rest of the clinical team, most people infected by the virus do, in fact, recover.

In addition, many who get infected don’t even encounter an inpatient care team. These mild COVID-19 cases are managed much like other respiratory infections - with supportive care and other therapies prescribed through an ambulatory care provider. But as we enter the third year of this pandemic and learn more about the SARS-CoV-2 virus, we continue to encounter more and more surprises.
