Prompt, Skillful maintenance of Surgical Microscopes
1) Is electrical safety testing the same as preventive maintenance?
Electrical safety testing is not the same as a preventive maintenance. Electrical safety testing measures the amount of current leakage in an electrical system, whereas a preventive maintenance is a thorough examination of all aspects of the system. Surgical microscope systems should have at least one preventive maintenance per year by a qualified service technician. Microscope systems that experience frequent use should be examined semi annually.
