Medical Gasesare an essential part of modern medical therapy and treatment, but where do they come from, and how do they get to the patient? This is a subject and a task that tends to be taken somewhat for granted in most hospitals, but medical gases are medicines and as such are one of the responsibilities of chief pharmacists, matrons or senior managers in hospitals where pharmacists are not present.
Topics presented will include:
- The general provision of medical gases
- The legal position, roles and duties of personnel involved in the provision of medical gases
- A description of services and some potential problems and hazards
- A guided walk-through of the medical gas pipeline systems and cylinder management
This one day short course is intended for senior managers who are involved in or are responsible for the supply, provision and quality of medical gases in their hospitals.
What our previous delegates say:
“This is essential CPD for all acute trust chief pharmacists”
“Unique course which has enhanced my knowledge and ability to chair the trust medical gas committee”
“Excellent course presented by knowledgeable and experienced experts in the field”
