Maintenance

Biannual preventive maintenance ensures proper device operation. The preventive maintenance as determined by the manufacturer should be followed. Electrical leakage tests are performed biannually on electrical components. The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) requires documentation of these activities. A pre-bypass checklist is also completed before each procedure for review of the following categories: patient, sterility, pump, electrical, gas supply, lines/pump tubing, cardioplegia, safety mechanisms, monitoring, temperature control, supplies, anticoagulation and backup. Documentation of a completed checklist is kept with the patient record, and must be signed with date and time, by the device operator.
