Maintaining Optimal Temperatures in CT Scan Rooms with AKCP Temperature Sensors: A Case Study of Metropolitan Hospital Nairobi, Distributed by B.S.A
CT (Computed Tomography) scanners are essential medical equipment used in diagnosing and treating various medical conditions. However, these machines generate a significant amount of heat that can impact their performance and lifespan. To ensure optimal performance, maintaining the ideal temperature in the CT scan room is crucial. Metropolitan Hospital Nairobi, a leading healthcare facility in Kenya, has implemented AKCP temperature sensors to ensure optimal temperature levels in their CT scan room, distributed by B.S.A, the authorized distributor of AKCP products across Africa.
Metropolitan Hospital Nairobi’s CT scan room is equipped with an advanced CT scanner that generates a lot of heat. The hospital’s management recognized the importance of maintaining optimal temperatures in the CT scan room to ensure the longevity of the equipment and provide a comfortable environment for patients. To achieve this, they installed AKCP temperature sensors in the CT scan room, provided by B.S.A.
The AKCP temperature sensors connected with sensorProbe2+ devices were placed at strategic locations in the CT scan room to provide real-time temperature readings. These readings are transmitted to the hospital’s central monitoring system, which healthcare professionals can access to take necessary actions to ensure the temperature remains within the optimal range.
Since implementing the AKCP temperature sensors, Metropolitan Hospital Nairobi has experienced numerous benefits. Firstly, the sensors have helped to prevent any damage to the CT scanner due to overheating. Secondly, the hospital has been able to extend the CT scanner’s lifespan by ensuring it is not exposed to extreme temperatures, reducing repair and replacement costs for the hospital.
The AKCP temperature sensors have also contributed to the safety and comfort of patients and healthcare professionals. CT scan rooms are typically kept at lower temperatures to ensure patients’ comfort during the scanning process. With the AKCP sensors, healthcare professionals can maintain a comfortable environment without compromising the performance of the CT scanner.
