Fans end up in almost every machine used in your daily life. Many of them, like the ones in your computers, appliances, and HVAC systems are only noticed when they stop working. It can be a hassle when something overheats due to lack of proper ventilation. Perhaps you might lose some information from an overheated hard drive or even have to take off your jacket because the temperature goes up a couple of degrees in your cubicle. However, there are times when a faulty fan just isn’t an option.
Every day, in thousands of hospitals and medical offices across the world, doctors rely on medical monitors to keep their patients alive and well. These critical diagnostic tools constantly measure a number of different vital signs including pulse oximetry (the amount of oxygen in the blood), ECG, blood pressure, body temperature, respiration, and cardiac output. They display this data on CRT or LCD screens and are often connected to a main computer, thus enabling doctors and nurses to monitor a patient from a distance. If you’ve ever had to spend any time in a hospital room (hopefully you haven’t) you have become acquainted with these beeping and humming machines. These modern digital miracles are like any other piece of complex electronic equipment; to function properly they need efficient cooling systems. Without high quality, durable and reliable fans, medical monitors would constantly breakdown, putting a patient’s health in jeopardy. When you’re sick or injured, you have enough to worry about. That’s why the world’s leading medical device makers rely on Pelonis to develop and manufacture their monitor airflow systems.
