Classics Never Die

Great Easy to use ESU Analyzer. Analog unit easy to use and ultra portable. This unit is still sold and supported by BC Group. Only draw back is it is difficult to test some of the newer model ESU units with this system.

Dornier's MediLas

0 Replies

The Medilas H and Medilas H20 were produced in the 1990s and continue to offer an affordable solution for laser URS if the proper aftermarket fibers are used in conjuction with the laser. The MediLas does not have a 'blast shield' to protect the focusing optic like most other holmium lasers do. The optic is expensive and difficult to change so it pays to use fibers that are designed with their own, internal blast shields. ProFlex LLF by InnovaQuartz provides the necessary additional protection while also offering superior energy delivery (efficiency) and more flexibility that even Dornier's own fibers can provide, at a lower cost. FIbers are available for these Dornier lasers in 200 um, 273 um, 365 um, 550 um and 910 um cores, in single use and reusable formats.

We have had 1100 Spectrums since 2009. The typical issues are: 1. Broken powercord at rear case connection. 2. Failed powercord transformer in the old style power cord. 3. Ground pingets pulledout oftransformer block in new style power cord. 4. PEMs (or nutserts) getting pulled out of front case. 5. Pump side IV pole clamp adapter gets pulled off PEMs or damaged. 6. Dirty/stuck retracted battery charger pins in the battery dock. 7. Latch not recognized as closed. 8. White screen. 9. Various errors, mostly 105 PIC motor error. 10. Upstream occlusion sensor won't sense an occlusion. The first issue we experienced was unusual for an infusion pump -an upstream occlusion sensor that would not alarm. I have been dealing with a wide variety of infusion pumps since 1992 with KCI and then Mediq/PRN. Never do I recall having an upstream occlusion sensor fail. Turns out, Sigma created an anti-nuisance algorithm for the sensor that reduces the 'attentiveness' after a period of time. Our facility used a lot of buretrols when this pump was implemented and relied on the UO alarm to be notified of medication delivery completion. I have heard a new algorithm is being developed, but either our staff has acclimated to the pump or are no longer using buretrols in that fashion. Most of what we are experiencing now is crash damage. If the front case is damaged, the pump must be sent in for repair. A minimum $500 charge typically. Feel free to contact me with any questions, we see a lot of these.

Hill Rom bed

1 Reply

I am now in hospital with a badly pulled hamstring from a bad fall. I'm 58 yrs old male and the absolute worst part of this stay in hospital has bee this rotten so called "bed". Rock pile is a more apt description for this worthless junkpile. It is painfully obvious that the moron who designed this hunk of garbage never spent a night in it. It is by far the most uncomfortable roclpile I have ever tried to sleep on, because in 7 nights the only sleep has bee from twhe drugs, the bed is IMPOSSIBLE to sleep on. Another thing is for sure, the hospital executives who were tricked into buying this scrap metal never laid thier hheads dowm on one either. How is a patient to recover without a wink of sleep because of these HORRIBLE "beds"???

This manual was exactly what we needed and is very much appreciated.

The connectors to and from the battery packs to the ventiator are easily broken and expensive to replace. Poor design!

Awful beds...nothing but problems with these units ever since we first got them.

1 Reply

We have a total of 28 INTOUCH beds here at our Facility and have had nothing but problems with the footboard connectors coming loose. Of the 28 beds 15 have had issues with the pins on the connector pushing out and no longer making connection. Some of the problems I am sure are user caused but most of these problems are due to a poor design by Stryker.
