How do you test a defibrillator in Rawanda? How can you use a piece of chicken to test an electrosurgery unit? How can you test the billi-lights before releasing them for use on infants when you have no photometer? These are the types of questions and answers that an engineer working in a developing world hospital needs every day. The proper test equipment isn’t available, and the hospital has a desperate need. You can neither release the equipment without testing, nor deny the clinical team the only piece of equipment that could help the patient. This book provides the kinds of practical testing and repairing suggestions that engineers can use when in a poorly equipped hospital, far from a clinical engineering department.Malkin, Robert is the author of 'Medical Instrumentation in the Developing World', published 2006 under ISBN 9780978556907 and ISBN 0978556909.
