The Difference Between Veterinary Anesthesia Maintenance and Service

by | Aug 10, 2023 | Medical & Veterinary Equipment Blog

The veterinary anesthesia machines your practice uses are an essential component of providing excellent care to your furry patients. You know what value this equipment delivers, and you also know that servicing and maintaining your veterinary anesthesia equipment is an ongoing need.

At this point, you likely lump veterinary anesthesia maintenance and service into one category. However, service and maintenance are very different things in the world of medical equipment, and it is important that you understand the differences between the two.

Equipment maintenance involves completing daily, weekly, or monthly procedures to keep the machine in optimal working conditions. For example, this may include filling up your vaporizers, removing moisture, and cleaning your machines. These simple tasks, when not performed properly or frequently, can compromise the proper operation of your equipment over time.

On the other hand, veterinary anesthesia service is typically performed every year and involves disassembling the machine and fully inspecting all its components. Worn-out parts may be replaced, and the rebreathing, low pressure, and high-pressure systems are all verified. This process may also include verifying the vaporizers. A reliable service company should perform this service to assure the reliable operation of your practice’s veterinary anesthesia machine.
