  6. Oximeters Used to Monitor COVID Patients

    A recent BBC News article has drawn attention to an NHS strategy in which pulse oximeters are being distributed to high-risk COVID-19 patients in order to monitor their progress at home. These £20 instruments provide an easy method of monitoring oxygen levels, allowing patients and doctors to identify silent hypoxia sooner and take action before situations become critical. Dr Matt Inada-Kim, ‘the doctor leading the [Covid Oximetry@home] scheme thinks everyone should consider buying one’.[1] Continue reading →
  7. Cold Chain Vaccine Storage: Temperature Data Loggers Essential to Preserving Jab Potency

    On the 4th January 2021, 82-year-old Brian Pinker became the first person to receive the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine which was approved by the MHRA for UK distribution on the 30th December 2020.[1] This follows the MHRA’s approval of the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine on the 2nd December 2020[2]; inoculation using this vaccine began on the 8th December 2020 with Margaret Keenan becoming the first-ever recipient.[3] However, transporting, storing and distributing injections brings its own set of logistical problems as their viability is dependent on maintaining specific temperatures which vary from vaccine to vaccine. Monitoring and maintaining temperature is therefore essential to ensuring successful mass inoculation. Many companies, such as Comark, Testo and FilesThruTheAir, have developed temperature data logging solutions optimised for this purpose. Continue reading →

  9. Monitor Indoor Air Quality to Prevent COVID-19 Outbreaks

    Research into the transmission of SARS-CoV-2 has presented ‘overwhelming evidence’ that inhalation of the virus ‘represents a major transmission route for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).’[1] In response, leading bodies, such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)[2] and the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC)[3], advise improving air ventilation in enclosed spaces in addition to following existing guidance, e.g. washing hands, maintaining social distancing, and wearing a face mask. Monitoring CO2 concentration provides an easy way of assessing air quality and maintaining good air ventilation. PASS Ltd offers a range of indoor air quality monitors suitable for this purpose, including Chauvin Arnoux’s CA 1510 IAQ Tester. Continue reading →
  10. Build Back Greener After Coronavirus: Use a PEL to Monitor and Improve Energy Efficiency

    Power Quality Analyser Blog As part of the government’s attempts to build back greener after coronavirus, Chancellor Rishi Sunak has revealed a Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme. This billion-pound program is aimed at improving energy efficiency in schools, hospitals and other public buildings. It is part of the UK’s efforts to reduce the public sector’s greenhouse gas emissions by 50% in a bid to meet legally binding targets of net zero emissions by 2050. Portable energy loggers, such as Chauvin Arnoux’s PEL103, are vital tools when it comes to measuring energy consumption and efficiency. These relatively inexpensive instruments can be used to establish an initial benchmark prior to implementing changes. Additionally, PELs can pinpoint where improvements would be most effective and can be used to monitor progress over time. Continue reading →
