How to Ensure the Safety of Your Veterinary Anesthesia Equipment

by | Jul 25, 2018 | Veterinary Blog

At Georgian Anesthesia and Medical Corp., we know how important it is to ensure your veterinary anesthesia equipment is functioning properly for your patients’ safety.

Putting an animal under anesthesia always poses a risk; however, we believe that it’s best practice to perform routine evaluations on your veterinary anesthesia equipment to ensure the machines, vaporizers, and breathing systems are fully functional at all times.

Routine maintenance ensures that any issues with your veterinary anesthesia equipment are addressed before they become life-threatening for your patients.

With our state-of-the-art veterinary anesthesia equipment, we at Georgian Anesthesia and Medical Corp. stand by the quality of our equipment, and we’re with you every step of the way, providing the setup for your new facility equipment and troubleshooting services as needed, so you’re aware of important care instructions for your equipment.

For example, did you know your soda lime should be changed regularly regardless of colour? Soda lime is used to absorb CO2 during surgery. Some vets wait until the tell-tale colour change from white to purple, but this can be a deceptive and dangerous strategy. With onsite regular maintenance, we will review this with your staff and make recommendations for frequency of replacement based on your surgical volume.

We understand that the demands on a high-volume veterinary practice may require a more diligent approach to equipment monitoring, and we want you to rest assured as we are available around the clock for emergency services and are happy to offer you routine medical equipment maintenance and vaporizer service with a registered biomedical team.

We know that veterinary anesthesia equipment is one of the biggest investments in your practice, and we are committed to providing safe and reliable service to ensure the lifespan of your equipment.
