The electrical safety of medical devices is significantly more stringent than those for other electrical equipment. The key concern is leakage current, which even at a very low voltage when applied to internal tissues could cause harm or be fatal. With patients often simultaneously connected to several medical devices, testing for leakage becomes crucial.
During this 60-minute presentation, participants will increase their knowledge of electrical safety testing, including unique situations such as testing double-insulated IEC 60601-1 Class II and Class IP medical devices, differences in testing IEC62353 and IEC61010 medical devices, and requirements of testing medical devices used in clinical laboratories in universities, healthcare facilities, and research institutes.
