MHRA Grants off-label use for Anaesthesia machines with built in ventilation as stand alone ventilators
Posted on 9th April 2020

Anaesthesia machines with ventilators – MDA granting off-label use for sole use of ventilator granted 8/4/20

On Thursday the 8th of April, a Medical Device Alert (MDA) was issued that allowed the ventilation only use of anaesthesia machines that had ventilator functionality for the duration of COVID-19 outbreak.

Using any equipment outside of it’s intended use is considered ‘off-label, however during the COVID-19 outbreak, all anaesthesia machines with ventilators used in the treatment of critical illness, outside its intended use is considered off-label, but may be essential due to ventilator availability.

The use of an anaesthesia machine as a (long-term) ventilator in a health care setting when it has only received regulatory clearance as an anaesthetic machine is considered as off-label use.

It is the responsibility of the clinicians/end user to make the decision to use a device off label, but the MHRA recognises it is essential in these times.

Subject to following the guidelines below, off label use of these anaesthetic machines will increase the number of ventilators available to our NHS in the fight against COVID-19:-

  • Carry out an appropriate risk assessment and document the reason for off-label use.
  • Healthcare professionals using these machines off-label must be trained and familiar with the unique performance characteristics of the device, including the device interface and alarm systems.
  • Follow the instructions for use (IFU), and the additional off-label use information from the manufacturer. This may include more regular maintenance, testing or calibration.
  • Monitor carbon dioxide levels in the breathing system. If levels are rising, replace the soda lime according to the manufacturer’s instructions. This is because most anaesthesia machines have a carbon dioxide absorber which needs to be regularly replaced or replenished whereas ICU ventilators do not.
  • Regularly check for condensate build-up, which may affect functionality. This is because most ICU ventilators include advanced condensate management, anaesthesia machines do not.
  • When suctioning, monitor for drops in pressure, which can exacerbate atelectasis. This is because ICU ventilators have autocompensation when inline suction is used, anaesthesia machines do not.
  • Ensure appropriate infection control is undertaken using local and national guidelines.
  • Report suspected or actual adverse events involving these devices through your local incident reporting system and/or your national incident reporting authority as appropriate: EnglandScotlandNorthern IrelandWales. You should also report directly to manufacturers if your local or national systems do not.

Some manufacturers have now issued statements on this issue:

Check relevant manufacturers’ websites for their statements.

This alert is intended to remain in effect only for the duration of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Euro Energy – Ready to build compatible medical batteries for older equipment

Euro Energy – Ready to build compatible medical batteries for older equipment

As our Hospitals face the enormous challenge of beating COVID-19, a lot of equipment that had previously gone ‘End of Life’ is either being brought back into service or having it’s service life extended in order to provide potentially life saving care for patients infected with the coronavirus. Older equipment that had been withdrawn from use such as ventilators, patient monitors, pulse oximeters, suction machines & syringe pumps are being cleaned down & serviced ready for patient use.

New field Hospitals -known as Nightingales - are being set up across the UK, the first one in London, with Manchester, Birmingham, Bristol, Harrogate, Glasgow, Cardiff and Belfast all to be ready for first patients very soon. These will all need equipping with ventilators, pulse oximeters, suction machines,syringe pumps and patient monitors, some will be new and manufactured by the well known medical manufacturers, but other engineering companies have also entered this market place with Dyson, the well known vacuum manufacturer & McLaren the British motor racing team developing and building ventilators, whilst JCB - better known for it's mechanical diggers - has lent it's expertise in metal fabrication to create cases for new equipment. 

New equipment will no doubt come with new batteries, but as older equipment is brought back into service the batteries are very often unavailable from the Original Manufacturer – so where can compatible medical batteries be purchased from?

Euro Energy has prioritised our NHS customers during this COVID1-19 outbreak, meaning that our stock of the various component cells (Lead Acid, Nickel Cadmium, NiCD, Nickel Metal Hydride, NiMH and Lithium Ion, Li-Ion) are all solely for use in compatible medical batteries. This also means that our entire production team are only building medical batteries, which in turn means that batteries built by Euro Energy (typically our part numbers that begin EE, CSA, CSB or are a 6 digit number) can now be turned around from receipt of order to despatch in just a couple of days – allowing our NHS Customers to have their essential life saving equipment ‘patient ready’ quickly. We’ve already seen an increase in orders for older, legacy batteries – some we’ve not built for 5 years!

For nearly 40 years Euro Energy has been designing and building compatible batteries and compatible battery packs for use in medical equipment and we’re proud to offer the widest range of Original Manufacturer medical batteries, compatible medical batteries and Original Manufacturer Equipment accessories (ECG cables, SpO2sensors, defib pads, NiBP cuffs etc) – many of which are immediately available from stock. For further information or to enquire about building a medical battery that is no longer available, please contact our friendly and knowledgeable Customer Service team on 0116 2340567 or email info@euroenergy.co.uk

Euro Energy continue to support our NHS

The UK and world’s COVID-19 crisis continues to deepen and increasing pressure is being felt by our NHS. Frontline services, Consultants, doctors, nurses & paramedics are all critical to beating this novel coronavirus - but also important are the support services that ensure wards, beds and equipment are clean and fully functional. Vital life saving and preserving equipment such as ventilators, monitors, pulse oximeters, suction machines, syringe pumps and defibrillators (defibs) need to be patient ready as soon as called upon, meaning EBME teams are working flat out providing a vital service in the fight against Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), the virus that causes COVID-19. Equipment needs to be cleaned and sterilised between patients, serviced to ensure it’s functioning correctly and very often, exhausted medical batteries will need replacing – and fast!

Euro Energy are still shipping Original Manufacturer Medical batteries, Compatible Medical batteries, lead acid batteries and Original Manufacturer Medical Equipment accessories (ECG cables, SpO2 sensors, defib pads etc) daily to help support the efforts of our NHS – the picture below shows packages waiting to out, all marked up to show that they contain Medical Supplies.

Replacement Respirator Batteries from Euro Energy
Posted on 17th March 2020

Respirators and Breathing Apparatus

As the COVID-19 crisis deepens, some hospitals are introducing respirators such as the 3M Versaflow for use by key members of staff. By providing respiratory protection, such key staff members can continue to perform their duties whilst being protected against the SARS-CoV-2 virus that is responsible for the COVID-19 outbreak.

Respiratory protection is offered by creating positive air flow through a filtration system that delivers cleaned air into a helmet worn by the user. Air flow is powered by a battery pack, typically worn on the user’s belt and, depending on make and model, may be delivered at variable flow rates. Protection levels depend on the filter being used and can include particulates (dust and airborne microorganisms) as well as hazardous fumes, vapours and gases.

To enquire about replacement respirator batteries and battery packs, contact our friendly & knowledgeable Customer Service team on 0116 2340567 or email info@euroenergy.co.uk
