What are Best Practices for Veterinary Equipment Calibration?

by | Sep 25, 2018 | Veterinary Blog

When running a successful veterinary practice, you have an obligation to your patients to ensure you have done your due diligence when it comes to the service and maintenance of your equipment. The safety of your patients and the effectiveness of your services depend on the quality of your equipment. That’s why we at Georgian Anesthesia and Medical Corp. have a very systematic approach to veterinary equipment calibration, providing routine troubleshooting and annual medical equipment maintenance

When you purchase any veterinary equipment from us at Georgian Anesthesia and Medical Corp., you have access to onsite training and setup, and we’ll recommend the best practices for maintaining your equipment to ensure that it is functional and safe for years to come. You’ll always receive a full report from us for all of your veterinary equipment calibration services.

Routine calibration and maintenance are critical for all equipment, but especially for your anesthesia and vaporizer equipment to ensure that your patients remain safe during surgery. Anesthesia equipment must be checked annually to ensure your high-pressure and low-pressure systems are cleaned, the settings are tested, and there are no leaks. Waste gas removal is also looked at regarding tubing, connections and flow.   We can discuss frequency of vaporizer full clean and calibration with you. If needed, we can provide you with a loaner vaporizer while our biomedical team cleans and calibrates your vaporizer so that you don’t have to interrupt your services.

We understand the demands and needs of veterinary practices, which is why we try to make our service and veterinary equipment calibration as convenient as possible. We also understand that sometimes the unexpected can happen (and often will!), so we offer troubleshooting over the phone.  Along with comprehensive veterinary equipment calibration, we provide you with peace of mind knowing our team at Georgian Anesthesia and Medical Corp. is here to support your practice.
