Quality Service from P&A Medical Ltd

Choosing the right service provider to maintain and calibrate your medical equipment is not always a straightforward decision. A clue to the quality of service is given in the price you are being quoted. It may sound appealing if it is a good deal less than other quotes but, as with everything, you get only what you pay for. Be sure you are being quoted ‘like for like‘, and that the equipment and technical backup is of only the highest quality.

There are a few companies which do provide quality of service, but there are many which don’t.

A quality service will only use quality instrumentation which has been calibrated itself on an annual basis. As you would expect, this level of attention to accuracy is not cheap but is essential in complying with national and international standards.

Be sure you are buying a quality service which is supplied by a quality provider. We ensure through our procedures and quality control that we are such a company.

Did you know?

Most hearing conservation programs use audiometers with TDH-style headsets comprising a headband, two transducers with plastic cushions and a cable to connect to the audiometer. While the headsets have advantages in ease of use, they can present challenges when cleaning and disinfection is necessary.

Of particular concern are your cup cushions. Since these are placed over the ear, they may serve as potential carriers of microorganisms when in contact with the pinnae and the ear canal opening. Cleaning these can often be difficult as it is vital to ensure that the transducer does not get wet when disinfecting the ear cushions, leaving wipes as the best viable option.

However, baby wipes are often used and there is growing evidence showing that the lanolin and other oils in these types of wipe will prematurely harden and degrade the cup cushions.

We therefore recommend anti-bacterial non-alcohol wipes as the best way of cleaning and disinfecting your headset.
