The unprecedented conditions that Public Health Institutions are experiencing due to COVID-19 pandemic crisis has forced Hospital Administrations to take measures outside the usual work practicesin order to manage several challenges. Metrology can help with issues regarding drug infusion devices and their use. We release the following material to help outline the potential dangers and [...]
The determination of the measurement error in the procedure of the calibration of instruments and the application of the correction curve are crucial for traceable measurements. However, the definitions of the measurement error are opposite in the standards used in metrology and the medical standards (ex. IEC 60601-2-24:2012 used for medical electrical equipment). More information [...]
