I spent my time shadowing multiple members of staff who were at different levels of seniority.
I had the opportunity to observe the "sleep clinic", to witness Electrical Equipment Testing on CPAPs; and later completed EETs on my own whilst commissioning Trilogy Evo Ventilators using the Fluke ESA616 following the IEC 60601 standard. I was also able to assist in running system tests and servicing an Oxylog 3000 plus and a Perseus A500.
I observed the process of visual inspections, diagnostic tests, and the returning of equipment for contractual maintenance on the following devices including; - Ultra Sound - ECG - Spot monitors - Nebulizers - Compressors - AEDs - Dialysis Pumps - Infusion Pumps
