Video Considerations in Anesthesia Machine Refurbishing

An expert's view on what to expect and look out for.

When looking into a serviced machine, make sure the unit has been thoroughly inspected and major parts and components have either been quality tested or replaced. DRE has industry educated and trained biomedical engineers dedicated to testing and servicing machines to meeting manufacturers original specifications. In addition we clean, cosmetically detail, and professionally paint machines that do not meet high cosmetic standards. Every anesthesia machine refurbished by DRE is backed by a warranty unless specifically purchased in as is condition.

Types of Anesthesia Machines and Special Considerations

  • Integrated Systems: Designed for full blown operating rooms with heavy surgical schedules. These units often offer 3 vaporizer chambers, integrated monitoring, ventilation, gas management, and have features to work with electronic data systems.
  • MRI-Compatible: In situations where the Anesthesia Machine will be in close proximity to MRI or imaging system it is best to search for systems marketed at MRI tested and compatible.
  • Portable Systems: For field work or small office based procedures portable units are easy to use and can be moved from room to room or between locations.
  • Small Footprint: In many cases the operating room space is at a premium and machines that are complex and bulky are not necessary or helpful. Units that offer a good feature set but still provide a small footprint can be the best solution.
  • Proprietary Components: Be aware that many machines require components, supplies, and accessories that are proprietary to that brand of machine. Vaporizers are a common component of any machine and specific types of vaporizers work with specific types of machines.
