Medical Gas Cylinder Storage e-Learning Course

UNDERSTAND THE STORAGE AND USE OF MEDICAL GAS CYLINDERS WITH THE 2012 EDITION OF NFPA 99 IN MIND.

The storage and use of medical gas cylinders is a seemingly simple task. However, there are several key regulations that will affect a hospital’s strategy for locating, storing, and using cylinders. This e-learning course will help guide users to understand the segregation of cylinders, the meaning of “in-use” physical storage, transfilling gases, transportation, signage, and labeling requirements.
