GaussAlert Magnetic Field Strength Alarm System
GaussAlert is designed to help keep MR Conditional equipment outside of the MRI exclusion zone. GaussAlert is programmed to alarm when the preset magnetic field strength is exceeded. It produces an attention-getting audio alarm when MR conditional equipment is too close to the MRI magnet.
Medical equipment that is used in the MRI room, such as infusion pumps, contrast injectors, patient monitors, anesthesia machines and others, may malfunction and potentially injure the patient if not kept outside of a specific magnetic field strength. In addition, MR Conditional equipment can degrade the image quality of a scan if brought too close tot he MRI magnet. With GaussAlert, the possibility of equipment malfunction and image degradation is dramatically reduced.
GaussAlert can also be useful as an alert for MR unsafe equipment, such as a crash cart or an emergency resuscitator, which can be kept near, but should not be taken into the MRI magnet room.
The GaussAlert is available in three factory preset gauss thresholds: 10 (MG-2504), 30 (MG-2505) and 100 (MG-2506) gauss, based on the equipment manufacturer's specifications. GaussAlert easily and quickly attaches to any piece of equipment and requires no periodic maintenance for up to five years. It is internally-powered and continuously monitors the ambient magnetic field strength.
GaussAlert compliments the function of our FerrAlert Halo Entry detector by monitoring equipment that has passed through the portal but still must be monitored inside the magnet room.
