Medical Equipment That Requires Regular Maintenance
You rely on your medical equipment to function when it is required for patient care. So that there is less downtime for the equipment in your clinic, hospital, or medical office, you must plan for regular medical equipment maintenance. Auxo Medical can keep your medical equipment in optimal condition.
If your facility provides surgical procedures for patients, all equipment must be maintained. Regularly scheduled maintenance prevents issues that may arise with faulty equipment.
Part of this maintenance is regular calibration. That way, readings are accurate, especially when monitoring the vitals of patients or the amounts of anesthesia given. Auxo Medical also provides testing of the vaporizer back pressure and vaporizer output as well as performing an electrical safety inspection.
We refurbish anesthesia equipment, using OEM parts and kits for current models as well as those that have been labeled as obsolete. Our preventative maintenance plans verify that the unit performs to industry requirements and OEM specifications.
Biomedical equipment must be maintained to specific requirements, especially those items that need to be calibrated and inspected on a regular basis. Auxo Medical provides inspections and maintenance for patient monitors, disinfectors, boilers, sterilizers, and autoclaves. We calibrate EKG and ECG machines, AEDs, and defibrillators so that they maintain accuracy and are ready for use when needed.
We provide periodic inspections to monitor any issues that might arise before it compromises patient safety. Incubators must be maintained as that will help keep temperature readings accurate. Fluid and blanket warmers must also be inspected to prevent the risk of overheating.
Sterile Processing Equipment
Sterile processing is at the heart of every clinic or medical facility and impacts every department. Without quality equipment that is carefully monitored and regulated, patient care can suffer. Downtime for sterilizing equipment means time spent away from patients.
Auxo Medical technicians travel with most parts they would need for any emergency repairs that are necessary. We have the means to test your water quality and make improvements as needed. We also use certified thermocouples to calibrate the sterile processing equipment. You can choose from several maintenance plans so that your sterilizing equipment is maintained according to regulations.
The Growing Need for Medical Equipment Maintenance
As medical equipment becomes more complex and more technical, the need for preventative maintenance and regular inspections increases. Service technicians must be trained to provide inspections, calibrate equipment to a detailed level of accuracy, and make diagnoses and repairs. Auxo Medical technicians are rigorously trained to provide the highest level of service to our clients and their medical equipment needs.
Preventative maintenance has become an even more critical part of equipment management with the increasing requirements to meet compliance and accuracy. Many of these pieces of equipment must now integrate with networks and other components.
Because of the complexity of the equipment being used in medical facilities, the need for outsourcing maintenance and repairs has grown. Most facilities don’t have technicians on staff with the level of expertise needed to maintain and repair this technical equipment.
The Need for Documentation
Facilities require access to full documentation for each piece of equipment that is serviced. They need a log of maintenance performed, a list of repairs made, and other documentation for regulatory requirements. Consistent reporting of data can help facilities determine the optimal timeframe for how often preventative maintenance should take place.
Auxo Medical provides complete reports for diagnosis and calibration, which are logged into a portal or sent directly to the client. All testing equipment is current and certified to maintain accuracy. Technicians receive specific manufacturer’s training to know how each product is designed to work and how to diagnose issues when the equipment isn’t working correctly.
Preventative Maintenance Service Plans
When looking into a specific service plan for preventative maintenance, you receive ongoing support that fits your needs and budget. Auxo Medical provides multiple plans for scheduled maintenance labor and parts as well as unscheduled service calls.

From there, we can adjust other plans based on the facility’s needs and investment. Every plan includes detailed service records to help facilities manage their maintenance needs.
