With COVID-19 heavily upon us, the mindset at hospitals has been split into two distinct directions. Facilities are scrambling to make sure they are prepared for the massive influx of coronavirus patients while attempting to keep up with day-to-day business.
As you are aware, hospitals in the U.S. are jammed with patients in dire distress, many requiring complicated respiratory care and other serious treatments.
These treatments may require the use of medical air or vacuum. Hospitals are adding beds and stations and tapping into resources that were not originally meant to be carried by the source equipment. There is a limit to what the existing source equipment can put out at any one given moment. An overloaded system may cause patients to wait in line for critical care.
airandvac.com is available to help keep your medical air and vacuum up and running efficiently during the crisis. We can also perform on-site repairs in case of an emergency.
Existing source systems may also be used for extended periods to deliver medical gases as needed. Over-usage puts the equipment under mechanical stress. The possibility of overheating pumps or pumps failing under the strain is common in over-use situations.
If the need arises, a rental medical vacuum or medical air system could be the answer. Installing a rental pump or system to handle the demand when you need it could help save a life. If an existing pump goes down, temporary equipment could give patients the critical care they need immediately.
