Introduction

The course is ideally suited for those with basic knowledge in biomedical engineering, medical instrumentation and supportive therapeutic and diagnostic medical equipment. This course is designed to bridge the gaps that often occur between academic knowledge and skills with the requirements of the actual work place. Learners will gain a good grasp of the related physiology to infusion devices, foetal monitoring and infant incubators. This will enable them to be confident and fully understand the principles of operation of these devices in a medical facility. The course will enable learners to perform all the required maintenance, safety testing and performance testing of infusion devices, foetal monitoring and infant incubators.

This course is aimed at new entrants and existing technical staff to the healthcare sector who are involved in maintaining these devices.

Aim

To provide participants with a good understanding of the principles of infusion devices, foetal monitors, infant incubators, and its applications and maintenance procedures.
