Medical Air Compressors in the Health Care Market
Medical air compressors are essential to healthcare facilities and play a crucial role in various medical applications. Pattons Medical offers an extensive range of compressed air products for the healthcare industry, including
medical air packages, medical vacuum packages, laboratory packages, outlets, zone valves, alarms, and manifolds.
Here are some ways medical air compressors are used in healthcare:
Supplying Breathing Air: Medical air compressors are used to generate a continuous supply of clean, compressed air for respiratory therapy, anesthesia, and critical care. Ventilators, respiratory support devices, and anesthesia machines deliver this air to patients, ensuring consistent breathable air flow for patients requiring respiratory support.
air compressors are available using Scroll, Reciprocating, and Rotary Screw technology. Our air compressors have several features and benefits:
NFPA 99 compliant Utilizing proven Hitachi oil-less medical air reciprocating compressors and medical scroll compressors available in base mount-single point connection, modular and tank mounted versions
HMI controls on all units
Built-in vibration isolation
Fully piped, wired and tested before shipment
Purge saving desiccant dryers for superior dew point performance
Operating Surgical Instruments: Compressed air is used to power pneumatic surgical instruments such as drills, saws, and other surgery tools. These instruments require a reliable compressed air source to operate efficiently and provide precision during procedures.
Laboratory Applications: Medical air compressors are used in various laboratory applications, including air supply for chromatography systems, air drying, gas chromatography, and mass spectrometry. They provide a clean and reliable compressed air source for analytical and diagnostic purposes.
Pattons Medical offers
oil-less Scroll technology by Hitachi, creating quiet, smooth-running, long-lasting, proven technology.
Vacuum Systems: Medical air compressors are often used in conjunction with vacuum systems in healthcare settings. These systems create suction for various applications, including wound drainage, surgical suction, and central vacuum systems for general cleaning and waste disposal.
vacuum pump packages have numerous features and benefits, including:
Proven reliable pump designs
Low cost of ownership
Dedicated Engineering Support
On-time production and delivery
Operation and maintenance training
Pump exchange program
Extensive parts inventory
Dental Applications: In dental clinics, medical air compressors are used to power dental tools such as drills, air abrasion systems, and suction devices. They provide the necessary compressed air for dental procedures, ensuring optimal equipment performance.
Patient Monitoring: Medical air compressors are used in certain patient monitoring systems that require compressed air for operation. For example, some non-invasive blood pressure monitors and oscillometric devices rely on compressed air to inflate and deflate cuffs for accurate readings.
Pattons Medical air compressors adhere to all
NFPA 99 and CSA standards in order to meet the stringent requirements of healthcare environments. These standards require the necessity for air to be clean, dry, and contaminant-free to ensure patient safety and prevent infections. Regular maintenance, monitoring, and filtration systems are crucial to maintaining the compressed air quality used in healthcare applications.
