Ventilator Testing

Ventilator testing requires high-performance gas flow analyzers

Ventilation testing is crucial as ventilators are often used on critically ill patients. Regular calibration ensures consistent accuracy and conformance to manufacturers standards. Our extensive range of products test the key parameters of these devices; including flow, pressure, volume and gas concentration.

What is ventilator testing?
Ventilators apply volume and pressure to a patient’s lung, to deliver assisted breathing. They are a vital part of critical care, which means the accuracy of ventilation variables is fundamental to patient safety. It is important that set values and actual values are equal. Ensuring ventilator accuracies is part of preventative maintenance procedures and is regulated across the world.

Why do ventilators need to be tested?
Ventilators are sophisticated medical devices essential in supplying respiratory support to critical ill patients in clinical facilities and homes. They are also regularly used during surgery whilst patients are under anaesthesia. Long term ventilation at home is progressively becoming more common, initiated by an increase in severe respiratory diseases. Despite ventilators being a necessary life-saving device, unskilled patients are often operating them. Even with appropriate training ventilators carry inherent risks.

How are ventilators tested?
Medical ventilator types differ by application with diverse ranges. For instance, an infant ventilator typically applies a volume of around 2mL with 100mbar pressure and a breath rate of 120bpm; whereas an adult ventilator typically applies 2000mL of volume with 20mbar of pressure and a breath rate of 12bpm. Therefore, a ventilator tester must be capable of measuring flow, volume, pressure and oxygen over a wide range of values.
