Medical vacuum suction regulators are designed with with patient and employee safety in mind.

With infection control being severely overlooked throughout today’s patient care, Amico has designed two different regulator models to help meet the needs of our patients and staff. The scout regulator, and the sentinel regulator! The sentinel and scout regulator both detect contamination. The sentinel family of regulators are manufactured in multiple colors to help identify the model type. You may also upgrade your either vacuum suction regulator to a digital model at little to no cost.

Did you know 37% of vacuum regulators in hospitals are contaminated?

Contaminants can spread to a new patient with in 48 hours. There was never a way to identify contamination until now. The scout medical suction vacuum regulator can identify contamination with a small alert on the lower left-hand side of the vacuum suction regulator. Servicing these suction regulators can be done in minutes and it’s very easy. The unique modular design makes repair and replacement a breeze for any biomedical or central supply department. The unit is made up of six replacable module components. Also, unlike the normal plastic inlet and outlet connections on most units the cast metal plate connections are extremely durable, therefore saving unnecessary repair costs. The case cover is also made of a strong plastic. A smooth surface with rounded corners making cleaning easy. The case also houses the gauge for extra protection. A large control knob and easy to read setting makes vacuum adjustment simple even in emergency situations.

Our pediatric vacuum regulator option restricts flow to 170 inches of mercury to prevent hi vacuum situations in the gauge face is imprinted to identify the regulator for pediatric use.

Conclusion

Medical vacuum suction regulators come in continuous and intermittent models and are ideal for any critical care environment. They can also be used in all patient areas since they are considered combination units. The intermittent module provides a reliable and quiet means of cycling the suction levels on and off during intermittent mode. Adult models regulate to 300 mmHg, Pediatric models to 160 mmHg and Neonatal models to 100 mmHg. ON/OFF timing cycles operate independently and can be adjusted on the back plate of the unit without removing any casing. Pediatric and Neonatal models have positive pressure relief valves for safety. Units come in analog or with digital displays.

PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE

When it comes to preventative maintenance services this category is often overlooked.

Throughout my career I’ve been asked, “What is the most important medical gas?” My response – “medical vacuum”. I will dive deeper into my reasoning during another blog post… ?

However, earlier this year I posted an article referencing a neglected medical vacuum system. Not only was this system on the brink of collapse, the system was barely providing adequate suction for the patients on the line – 13 inHg. After continually following up with our perspective client on the said system,  I later was informed the vacuum system caught fire, damaging not only the system in place but the surrounding area of the facility. The fire was most likely related to clogged or unchanged exhaust filters, causing the system to overheat and catch on fire.

Our testing procedures follow in strict compliance with the NFPA 99.

Medical gas outlets, alarms, zone valves, source source and labeling shall be tested and inspected on an annual basis. These testing procedures ensure to prolong the life and safety of a medical gas system and its components.

Medical gas outlets with a gauge pressure of 50 psi including, but not limited to oxygen, nitrous oxide, medical air, and carbon dioxide she’ll deliver 100 SLPM with a pressure drop of not more than 5 psi and static pressure of 50 psi to 55 psi.  Medical gas outlets with a gauge pressure of 50 psi including, but not limited to oxygen, nitrous oxide, medical air, and carbon dioxide shall deliver 100 SLPM with a pressure drop of not more than 5 PSI and a static pressure of 50 psi to 55 psi. Oxygen and medical air outlet serving critical care areas shall deliver a transient flow of 170 SLPM for three seconds.

  • Support gas outlets shall deliver 140 SLPM and have a pressure drop of no more than 5 PSI and have a static pressure of 160 PSI to 185 PSI.
  • Medical-surgical vacuum inlets shall be tested and shall draw 3.0 SCFM without reducing the vacuum pressure below 12 inches of mercury (inHg) at any ajacent station inlet.

Zone valves shall include the proper labeling, function and be easily accessible. Records shall be made listing the rooms or areas controlled by each valve for each gas. The information shall be utilized to assist and verify the proper labeling of the valves.

Area alarm panels are tested for line pressure sensor accuracy.

Vacuum systems shall alarm when the pressure drops below a gauge pressure of 12 inches of mercury (inHg).

A piping particulate test will be conducted on 25% of the zones, and tested at the outlet most remote from the source. Our filters are pre-weighted and measured on site. If any outlet produces more than 1 mg of matter, the outlet will be purged until clean.

Manifolds will be tested for alternation and proper function. Alarm set points will be triggered actuating an alarm at the master panels located within the facility.

Medical vacuum pumps, medical air compressors, and waste anesthesia gas disposal systems will all be cycled and all local alarm signals will be actuated to ensure proper system function. Temperature readings, amperage draw, voltage and a complete electrical control cabinet analysis will be completed and documented.

Master Alarm Panels shall be tested to ensure the proper signals are tied in from the the source equipment.

A medical gas regulator reduces a medical gases cylinder pressure to the delivery pressure and maintains a constant pressure to assure an accurate flow rate. Each type a regulator is designed with a symbol/name for specific gas and for definite inlet and delivery pressure ranges.  Medical gases as well as medical gas regulators are manufactured to be gas specific. This alleviates the incidence of creating harmful cross connections.  Cylinder contents shall be identified by attach labels are stencils naming the contents in accordance with the mandatory requirements of CGA-C-7.

Medical Testing Solutions offers several different types of medical gas regulators:

Our multi-stage regulators are two regulators in series using a common body. The first stage (high pressure) reduces the inlet pressure approximately 90% and is preset at the factory. The second stage (low pressure) is adjustable to the desired delivery pressure.

Our single stage regulator with 15 liter per minute flowmeter attachment reduces cylinder pressure to the delivery pressure and maintains a constant pressure to assure an accurate flow rate.

A pipeline regulator operates from a source of lower pressure, usually 200 psi or less; and normally has only one gauge, which indicates the outlet pressure. Pipeline regulators must not be used on her with high-pressure gas cylinders.

Medical Testing Solutions also has the option for gauge-less regulators as well. Gauge-less regulator is used to wear rough use in gauge damage our problem. The cylinder (inlet) pressure is shown by the piston type indicator. The delivery pressure is set by the adjusting knob and shown by the calibration marks on the bonnet.

Whether you are looking for an oxygen regulator, medical air regulator, nitrous oxide regulator, nitrogen regulator, carbon dioxide regulator, or any other specialty gas regulator, please feel free to browse our webpage for all of all mentioned products. Medical Testing Solutions strives to provide our customers with the highest quality customer service and knowledge in the industry.
