A RELIABLE SOURCE OF POWER IS VITAL IN PROTECTING CRUCIAL MEDICAL IMAGING EQUIPMENT

Loss of critical power to sophisticated medical imaging equipment poses a huge risk to infrastructure and patient safety.

Medical Imaging UPS Systems

The detrimental effect a loss of electricity to medical imaging equipment can have on a hospital is often overlooked. Technological advancements in the healthcare sector mean there is an ever increasing reliance on their critical power infrastructure, a loss of power could cause delays in patient recovery, diagnosis, treatment and care.

THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING UPS FOR MEDICAL IMAGING EQUIPMENT

Unlike hospital operating theatres it can be easy to dismiss the importance of a UPS for MRI scanners and X-Ray scanners because there isn’t always the perceived immediate risk to human safety. However, not only do power interruptions pose the risk of damaging the medical imaging hardware costing £millions, but it can also cause disruption to staff shifts and patient appointments.

Before a medical imaging scan, a patient may have to be injected with radionuclide, radioactive or other tracers. If during the scan power is lost then these tracers cannot be re injected for a long time. This delays diagnosis and causes problems for the patient’s welfare.

If the power fails during a medical imaging procedure the data recorded can be lost and the computer systems corrupted. The Hardware and software will need to be reset delaying, and in many cases cancelling, the procedure.

With a UPS (Uninterruptible Power Supply) installed the risks outlined above as a result of unexpected brownouts and power failures are alleviated and the performance of the medical imaging equipment is optimised.

RECOMMENDED UPS SYSTEMS FOR MEDICAL IMAGING EQUIPMENT

Due to the dynamic load characteristics and voltage regulation requirements of most medical imaging equipment, the sizing of a UPS can be difficult. In most cases a standard UPS used for commercial and IT systems will not be suitable due to the dynamic load characteristics and voltage regulation requirements of most medical imaging equipment.

With over 25 years of experience in providing full medical UPS solutions, we are trusted by many leading health care authorities.
Regulations we comply with:

  • HTM (Health and Safety Memorandum)
  • BS7671 (British Standard)
  • BS6290-4 (British Standard)
  • IEC60601 (International Electrotechnical Commission)
