The recent Webinar Wednesday session “Performing a PM on the Medtronic/Covidien FT10 Surgical” sponsored by Rigel Medical provided insights to HTM professionals around the world. Participation in the presentation was eligible for 1 CE credit from the ACI.
Rigel Medical National Business Development Manager Jack Barrett and Biomedical Sales Engineer Rebecca Adkins co-presented. They performed a PM on the Medtronic/Covidian FT10 surgical generator and demonstrated testing techniques on this well-know energy platform. The presentation also included hyperlinked video clips to show actual testing.
More than 400 people tuned in for the live presentation and a recording of the webinar is available online at 1TechNation.com/Webinars.
Attendees shared positive comments about the webinar in a survey following the webinar.
“I was in the process of evaluating various ESU analyzers and received an email regarding a webinar on the testing of the FT10 ESU. The webinar provided excellent information on general ESU testing and on the use of the Rigel Unit-therm. The webinar provided information to assist in making an informed decision on which unit I will purchase,” Director of Clinical Engineering A. Constantine said.
“Great webinar on the importance of thorough ESU testing and how to perform tests effectively. Provided a wealth of knowledge about testing procedures and ESU operation. I’m very glad to have attended to this webinar,” wrote Biomed D. Mishchuk.
“For my first Webinar Wednesday, it was a topic that was quite timely as our new FT10s are due for service this month,” Biomed P. Paulsen said.
“A very informative and expansive explanation of the FT10 PM. The webinar provided detailed information on the operation of the ESU allowing a better understanding of why we test specific parameters,” Clinical Engineering Specialist Z. Foreman said.
“I was able to follow along with the slides as well as using my own equipment to almost be getting a hands-on experience in the comfort of my own shop,’ wrote Biomed K. Kramer.
“The Webinar was very comprehensive, but easy to follow. Exceeded my expectations and look forward to future webinars organized in this same fashion … combining PowerPoint detail and actual video of the process occurring,” Biomed Site Leader M. Kirkland wrote.
“If you are NOT involved in webinar Wednesday, you are missing out on a golden opportunity to gain knowledge and experience without having to go to the manufacturer’s training,” said M. Bryant, Electronics, Service & Testing owner.
“Keeping abreast of the latest technology, equipment and procedures, is a must for every biomedical technician. Thanks to your webinars, techs are presented with a range of topics on things that are vital in our everyday work environment. Keep it up and give us more,” Biomed T. Johnson said.
“Webinar Wednesday is cooler than a polar bear’s toenails,” Biomed P. Bright said.
“Webinar Wednesday are an amazing help to me and my co-workers. I am fresh out of college and watching these helps me grow faster into a great biomed. Since they are at the same time every week, I don’t have to guess when the next one will be and can plan to attend these webinars,” Biomed C. Threlkeld said.
