Why Are Patient Monitors Used?
Patient monitors are some of the most useful medical devices. Almost all patients will at some point be hooked up to a patient monitor. Patient monitors are used to asses the overall health of a person. Patient monitors are able to monitor pulse, blood pressure, oxygen, and temperature. Each of these parameters is important to medical professionals in developing diagnosis or prognosis on a patient. At all times, a patient monitor is connected to inpatients in the hospital.

Why Is Renting Right for Me?
There are many reasons that renting could be a better option for medical facilities than purchasing could be, but every situation differs from another. There are many benefits to renting medical equipment. Some benefits include avoiding acquisition and maintenance costs on equipment, ability to ensure equipment availability to meet immediate needs. There is no downtime due to repairs or preventative maintenance in using the equipment. By renting, you are afforded the freedom from technical obsolesce in that you can change out the unit when newer models come out. Other factors that may affect your decision to rent include the ability to access equipment without capital and to ensure the most efficient management of resources. Ask your sales representative about patient monitor rentals. Also, flu season will be starting very soon, and your hospital or medical facility will likely see an increase in patient census. Make certain that you have enough medical equipment for your employees to help care for patients.

The Refurbishment Process
All of Soma’s refurbished equipment goes through a meticulous and strenuous process to assure that it arrives at the customer in pristine condition and working order. First, our procurement team sources the best products from healthcare facilities. Next, these products arrive and are tested and evaluated by trained biomedical engineers. Once these products pass inspection, they are outfitted with any replacement parts from our very large Parts Department of spare original equipment manufacturer parts. Next, the unit is brought to our special cosmetics team. The medical equipment cosmetic department sands, paints, cleans, and attaches new stickers and decals so the piece of equipment resembles how it did when it originally left its manufacturer. After cosmetics, the unit is brought back to the biomedical engineers who do another quality inspection. The units are then sent to our in-house shipping department and are ready to be packaged and shipped to your facility for immediate use.
