    Measurement solution for medical workplace monitoring

    In taking a responsible stance on the exposure of workers to any potential hazardous gases, there is a need for workplaces using anaesthetic gases, such as hospital operating rooms or research laboratories, to control the level of waste anaesthetic gas in the ambient air. Anaesthesia machines, ventilators, breathing systems and waste gas scavenging systems will all contribute to te background level of he anaesthetic gases that are present in the environment within a facility, whether those machines are in a good state of repair or not. Recovery rooms can become polluted, for example from gas exhaled by the patient, and clean-up from any spills can remain in the background air for long periods.

    Gas monitoring instruments and systems for anesthetic gases

    The anesthetic gases and vapors which leak into the indoor atmosphere during medical procedures are considered waste anesthetic gases (WAGs). The exposure is of relevance to thousands of professionals in hospitals, operating theaters, patient recovery rooms, dental offices, and veterinary clinics around the world, who may be continually exposed to the waste anesthetic gases during their workday. Typical gases of concern include nitrous oxide N2O and several halogenated compounds in vapor form, such as sevoflurane, isoflurane, enflurane, halothane, desflurane, and methoxyflurane. Short-term exposure to these gases may lead to several symptoms, such as dizziness, headaches, fatigue, nausea. Long-term exposure to some of the anesthetic agents may result in sterility, birth defects, cancer, and liver and kidney disease.

    Radiation Monitoring for Medicine and Research laboratories

    Medicine and Research laboratories The medical industry uses radioactivity to explore and heal the human body. In pharmaceutical laboratories, nuclear medicine practitioners and patients alike are exposed to ionizing radiation to various extents. These internal and external doses, generated by radiotherapy, scintigraphy and sealed or unsealed sources, require special precautions. Saphymo designs and manufactures various dose monitoring solutions, ranging from individual radiation protection to process and waste control. Research labs using accelerators or reactors can also rely on Saphymo’s ability to meet safety requirements by providing highly technical, custom-made devices suitable for monitoring both very low and very high activity. The Saphymo product ranges, from Radiation Monitoring Systems developed from A-Z by Saphymo to Survey meters and dosimetry, meet medical and research requirements to the full.
