Ideal for testing exposure to Entonox in the radiology department, our personal sampling tubes are attached near to each team members’ breathing area to monitor individual exposure levels.
Used for the duration of a typical shift, they are then returned to us so that we can produce a report outlining the results and the need for any further action. What’s more, as our personal sampling tubes contain non-magnetic metal, they are safe to use around MRI equipment.
Where staff regularly work in rooms with higher levels of Nitrous Oxide that is administered as a general anaesthetic prior to MRI scans, we recommend continuous monitoring, carried out by one of our consultants.
This allows us to monitor the workplace atmosphere in that specific area, so that we can quickly get a grasp of typical exposure levels, including peak times and any areas of concern.
