Biomedical Equipment Repair Technology

A biomedical equipment repair technician is someone who specializes in calibrating, maintaining, and repairing the medical machinery used in a healthcare facility. You’ll handle complex machinery such as ventilators, infusion pumps, cardiac monitors, and defibrillators. You’ll also perform safety checks on electrical equipment, wheelchairs, and radiological diagnostic testing machines. The biomedical technician contributes enormously to successful patient outcomes working on equipment that grows more advanced and vital all the time. Biomedical technicians prevent mechanical and computer errors that could harm patients or lead providers to the wrong diagnosis. Hospitals depend on biomedical technicians in order to meet local, state, and federal regulations governing the use of medical equipment.

The Biomedical Equipment Repair Technology program content includes, but is not limited to, hydraulics, pneumatics, optics, and mechanics to troubleshoot, service, and repair equipment commonly used for treatment, diagnosis, and monitoring of patients in a medical environment.
