Testing new medical ventilators for the NHS

RN Electronics is working with UK manufacturers to test new medical ventilators that are so essential for hospitals and those most affected by the Coronavirus. RN has developed a testing system to cover the requirements for a Rapidly Manufactured Ventilator System (RMVS) prototypes being developed by a number of manufacturers and consortia.

Paul Ray, Managing Director at RN Electronics Ltd said: “We are very pleased to support the national effort to provide new ventilator systems to the NHS. Before they go into urgent use testing is required by the government to ensure full compliance with international standards.“

Before new devices can be considered as ‘safe’ for use in medical working environments and brought to market, it is necessary to determine if a device can perform safely and deliver its essential performance. That is without causing harm and/or electromagnetic disturbances affecting other equipment in the ICU; and equally its ability to withstand interference from other nearby devices in its operating environment.

This is typically achieved by EMC testing to applicable medical standards. RN Electronics is a UKAS accredited testing laboratory routinely performing testing for medical devices, including ventilators, to the medical standard EN/IEC 60601-1-2.
