About Medical Equipment Technician

A variety of electrical and electronic equipment is used in hospitals for various diagnostic and therapeutic purposes; including operation theatre for anesthesia and surgical purposes. Modern medicine is emerging with new trends in equipment technology. The success of the procedures and safety of patients depends largely on the reliability, precision, sensitivity, and trouble-free performance of this equipment. It is also necessary that hospitals and diagnostic centers should regularly calibrate the biomedical equipment in use. For this, we need qualified and skilled technicians, which are very few in this sector. Due to the lack of these technicians, Biomedical equipment remains in operational conditions without adequate maintenance support, especially in the government sector. So this course can fill that lacunae by providing trained manpower in almost all branches of modern medicine like Cardiology, Neurology, Physical Medicine, Medical imaging, CSSD, Dialysis room, etc. This shall result in greater service to the general public and improved healthcare administration.
