CRITICAL CARE EQUIPMENT REQUIRES A CONSISTENT INPUT OF RELIABLE POWER

Patients in critical care facilities often rely on life support machines and so it is vital that there is no loss of power or power fluctuations

Critical Care Unit UPS System

Critical Care facilities or intensive care units (ICUs) occupy a large area of a hospitals infrastructure and require a large number of resources including sophisticated patient monitoring equipment. This equipment can range from bodily function monitors and ventilators to IV lines and pumps, all of which are heavily dependent on a reliable source of electrical power. A loss of power to such equipment would have adverse effects on a patient’s recovery and may cause system errors or malfunctions.

THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING UPS FOR CRITICAL CARE EQUIPMENT

Uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) are a fundamental part of a hospital’s critical power infrastructure and in the event of a power outage, power fluctuations or brownouts would provide a continuity of power for critical care areas. A UPS would also ensure the ICUs compliance with regulations highlighted in IEC bulletin 60364-7-710 that power should be resumed for life support equipment within a maximum of 0.5 seconds in all medical locations intended for purposes of diagnosis, treatment, monitoring and care of a patient and where isolated power is installed.

It is also vital that UPS systems, batteries and switchgear adhere to a number of other regulations and operating recommendations.

Regulations we comply with:

  • HTM (Health and Safety Memorandum)
  • BS7671 (British Standard)
  • BS6290-4 (British Standard)
  • IEC90601 (International Electrotechnical Commission)
