More bang for your buck: Surgical Lasers

From the March 2014 issue of DOTmed HealthCare Business News magazine
While surgical and cosmetic lasers can deliver profits to facilities and spas, being in the black can quickly head to red if equipment goes down. Simple preventative maintenance can keep your lasers online and ready to work. DOTmed HealthCare Business News received tips from five industry insiders to give you the information you need to keep your lasers alive.

Guided by guidelines
Manufacturers provide guidelines for a reason, it’s to your benefit to follow them, says Steve Seltzer of Requip Medical.

RaySafe helps you avoid unnecessary radiation

RaySafe solutions are designed to minimize the need for user interaction, bringing unprecedented simplicity & usability to the X-ray room. We're committed to establishing a radiation safety culture wherever technicians & medical staff encounter radiation.




Accessorize
“Use quality accessories,” says John Yorke of LaserMedix. Cheaper accessories may save money up front, but if those accessories damage your equipment, the back-end costs can easily surpass the savings.

Handle with care
“When handling fibers, pay particular attention to the ends,” says Andrew Howe with Excel Lasers Limited. “Contamination can lead to burn-out in the laser output port, requiring an expensive repair,” he says.

Log it all
Wouter Kelderman of Dutch Optical recommends users keep a logbook tracking their equipment use and equipment degradation rate. By keeping track of procedures performed along with costs involved with equipment repair and upkeep, you’ll also be able to determine what your return on investment is, which will help you to make decisions when it comes time to replace or upgrade equipment.

Yearly check-ups
Depending upon how heavy or light the workload is, you may want to adjust the schedule a little, but Eric Graham of Phase2 Laser – Powered by Sentient, recommends you schedule at least a yearly check-up to keep your equipment performing at the top of its game.
