Technology and the Future of Medical Equipment Maintenance
Maintenance of medical equipment has been changing rapidly in the past few years. It is changing more rapidly in developed countries, but changes are also occurring in developing countries. Some of the changes may permit improved maintenance on the higher technology equipment in developing countries, since they do not require onsite expertise.
Evidence-based approach to the maintenance of laboratory
We studied 2,849 equipment-repair requests (of which 2,529 were out-of-service medical equipment) from 60 resource-poor hospitals located in 11 nations in Africa, Europe, Asia, and Central America. Each piece of equipment was analyzed by an engineer or an engineering student and a repair was attempted using only locally available materials.
Challenges and solutions for instituting an efficient
In addition, the guidance provided in equipment maintenance documents provided by manufacturers is not part of laboratory practice in Central Asian countries (or most other developing countries). Preventive maintenance is intended to minimize unexpected failure of equipment or instruments so they continue to function as desired.

Staff experiences of providing maternity services in rural
The poor maintenance of equipment and inadequate supplies of drugs and other items contribute to the low quality of maternity services often found in rural settings in low- and middle-income countries, and raise the risk of adverse patient outcomes through delaying care provision. We aim to describe staff experiences of providing maternal and neonatal care in rural health facilities in

Frequency and quality of radiation monitoring of construction
Since World War II, large numbers of construction workers were employed at U.S. Department of Energy nuclear weapons sites for periods ranging from a few days to over 30 years. These workers performed tasks during new construction and maintenance, repair, renovation, and demolition of existing facilities.
The Best Cleaning Supplies for the Job - Consumer Reports
Cleaning the kitchen or bathroom can be such an onerous job that some homeowners resort to the strongest cleaning supplies available. Commercial cleaners carry risks and should be used with care.
Perceived barriers in the use of ultrasound in developing
Access to ultrasound has increased significantly in resource-limited settings, including the developing world; however, there remains a lack of sonography education and ultrasound-trained physician support in developing countries. To further investigate this potential knowledge gap, our primary objective was to assess perceived barriers to ultrasound use in resource-limited settings by
Rapid assessment of infrastructure of primary health care
Health care infrastructure constitutes a major component of the structural quality of a health system. Infrastructural deficiencies of health services are reported in literature and research. A number of instruments exist for the assessment of infrastructure. However, no easy-to-use instruments to assess health facility infrastructure in developing countries are available. Present tools are
