Tips for buying Gas Monitor, Atmospheric

  1. Systems in the high specificity category are usually better at detecting low levels of EtO. Sequential air sampling from different locations is required if multiple points must be monitored.
  2. Depending on the number of sensing points and the system response time, sensing locations may go unmonitored for extended periods of time. No sensing point should go unmonitored for over 5 minutes to ensure that the monitor will alarm before dangerous exposure levels. The monitor should take less than 5 minutes to respond.
  3. Systems in the low specificity category are usually set to alarm at higher EtO levels. In this case a shorter response time is necessary to prevent extended exposure to the higher EtO levels.
  4. The monitor should display measured levels in ppm because this is how EtO regulations specify limits. Audible and visible alarms should alert users when limits exceed a specified concentration. The monitors should be designed for continuous monitoring in a fixed area.
  5. These devices are offered in a wide range of sizes, configurations, and capabilities, and their prices vary accordingly.
  6. There is no specific OSHA standard about the type of continuous monitor a hospital needs. There are few other concrete guidelines, either from local agencies or in the published literature.
  7. Facilities should consider the following factors: backup capabilities in the event of a power failure, the availability of accessory equipment, calibration requirements, and the price of a service contract.
  8. Some models offer additional features, such as generating printed reports, performing internal diagnostics, and storing summaries of previous alarm conditions.
  9. Monitors with both visual and audible alarms should be preferred.
  10. There are systems with optional service-relay contacts inside the monitor that activate concurrently with the alarm and can be used to control ventilation equipment or auxiliary alarms.
  11. Facilities are encouraged to buy monitors that can also detect and measure other sterilization gases, such as hydrogen peroxide and ozone, because of the rapid development in alternative forms of sterilization.
  12. In the future, lower availability and higher costs of EtO may force facilities to purchase sterilizers that use toxic non-EtO sterility, which may also require monitoring.
