Maintenance technicians and nursing staff have to make sure that medical devices are working properly, so that clinicians can concentrate on patients and procedures. Medela devices have been designed for easy operation, and some are equipped with features such as acoustic and visual signals that indicate any deviation from normal operation or the recommended settings.
Comprehensive training in the use of medical technology products
Medela University is a comprehensive training platform that explains how to safely use Medela products for various areas of application, and each course provides highly detailed background information, training videos and teaching support. To support this training, a series of ‘quick cards’ is also available which outline the key operational steps for every piece of Medela equipment. These cards provide useful instructional summaries for users who are familiar with a device but do not necessarily work with it on a regular basis.
Medela also offers extensive technical support via local affiliates and customer service teams that deal with medical device service and maintenance, safety checks, customer complaints and the development of personalized training programs.
Vacuum pumps for all applications
There is a Medela pump available for every situation in which key parameters – such as suction strength, fluid flow rate and stationary versus portable use – need to be taken into account. The main areas in which Medela pumps are used include drainage, surgical suction and airway suction. A wide range of accessories are also available to allow for complete system customization.
Medical suction devices – reproducible performance
The modular design of Medela equipment allows for easy system assembly and maintenance. The drive unit (pump) is the basis of all Medela devices, and current models are the result of more than 50 years of experience in medical vacuum technology.
