Medical Gas Supplies - Level 2 - Online CPD Training Course.

Medical gas supply systems in hospitals and other healthcare facilities are utilised to supply specialised gases and gas mixtures to various parts of the facility. Medical gases are widely used throughout hospital and community settings. To ensure that medical gases are used safely, healthcare professionals need to be trained in the correct method of handling, setting up and using medical gas equipment. This helps to ensure that medical gases are safely administered to patients following the approved procedure. Health and social care organisations will also be meeting the legislative and regulatory requirements set out by UK authorities.
