Medical gas alarm systems

For more than a century, medical gases have been used in the healthcare sector for many forms of modern diagnosis and treatment, becoming crucial elements in the well-being of the patient and the operation of any hospital facility. Their uses are very diverse: from respiratory support to anaesthetic agents, to diagnose and treat various pathologies, to calibrate medical equipment, etc. These gases, being classified as medicines, must meet the highest standards of safety, quality and efficiency.

In this respect, one of the most important points is their management and control. For this, we have alarm systems for medical gases, capable of alerting of possible failures, indicating what it is and solving problems that could be very serious. Let’s get to know what they are, starting with a little more about medical gases.

Use of blockchain technology in the healthcare system

La red blockchain en el ámbito de la salud tiene numerosas aplicaciones y su uso está generando un gran impacto, incrementado el nivel de confiabilidad y seguridad de la información.

The great advantage of blockchain is that it makes it possible to record a transaction, contract or any other type of action on the internet in a verifiable, unforgeable and transparent way, without the need for a third party to verify its validity.

The blockchain network in the healthcare sector has multiple applications and its use is already having a huge impact.

The most important technology trends in the healthcare sector

Although it is true that the healthcare sector began its digital transformation years ago, since the end of the pandemic and in 2022 the implementation of new and innovative healthcare technologies is making the sector one of the most advanced in the world.

In ETKHO’s new post, we take a look at the main technological trends in healthcare, not just today, but for the short and medium term future.

We can anticipate that sustainability, telemedicine, IoMT, robotics or drones are some of the protagonists. But there is much more.

Machine learning in hospitals: what it is, applications and advantages

The healthcare system is one of the fields in which Machine Learning technologies can be further developed. The ability of machines to learn has established itself as a key factor behind countless aspects of everyday life. In this regard, machine learning seems like the branch of artificial intelligence that has the most power of influence. Its main mission is to create an AI with the ability to learn automatically thanks to the accumulation of data.

The healthcare sector has been working for years to get the most out of great machine learning. And it is that this technological advance plays a determining role in the development of medical procedures or data management. A sector that is transforming by leaps and bounds thanks to machine learning that, among other things, allows patients to predict, treat and diagnose diseases.

New technological advances in medicine

Thanks to technology, medicine is becoming more efficient every day and allows us to take better care of people’s health. At the same time, advances in technology make life easier for medical professionals, reducing waiting lists or human error. Artificial intelligence, big data, mobile applications for health … new technological advances in medicine have arrived to improve our lives and the health of all people.

Technology evolves and advances so fast that humanity will always lag behind. We have not finished implementing new technological advances in medicine, when new revolutionary trends are already emerging.

Hospital modernization: electrical safety to guarantee the use of technology

In medical consultations it is increasingly rare, or almost impossible, to see the doctor writing a prescription by hand. Now doctors use the computer and, in most cases, we don’t even need them to print the prescription.

Thanks to technology, the information goes directly to the health card that we present at the pharmacy to receive the prescribed medicine. This is just one example of how technology has modernized the healthcare sector in recent decades, which means greater efficiency in this service but also implies a greater need for electrical safety.
