Proper Anesthesia Monitoring Requires the Use of Certain Safety Features
Anesthesia monitoring has come a long way since the creation of the first anesthesia machine nearly 100 years ago. Since then, many advancements have been made, nearly all of which have been aimed at improving functionality, mobility, convenience, and above all, patient safety. While a list of possible safety features that an anesthesia workstation may include is virtually endless, there are a few key features to look for when purchasing one for your healthcare facility.
First and foremost, it’s important that any anesthesia monitoring be conducted by a trained individual and that the anesthesia workstation be checked before use to ensure the machine is functioning properly. To this end, many anesthesia machines incorporate technology that will work in conjunction with your capable staff members to run internal checks to review the functioning of all safety features.
Some of the additional features that machines should include to provide proper anesthesia monitoring include the proper assembly of flow meters, easy access to all controls, constant oxygen monitoring, and a variety of alarm settings to alert the anesthesiologist of any possible mishaps – sometimes before they happen.
