Medical Gas Annual Testing
Compliance Solutions offers annual medical gas testing that outlines a preventative testing measure to ensure the entire medical gas system in your facility is kept up to date with the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA 99 2012) code requirements and is tested for the performance of the system. The testing ensures leaks, faults, and non-code compliant systems are tested, documented, and placed into a report for the facility to reference. With the experienced ASSE 6030 certified technicians at Compliance Solutions, we can develop a plan of action for faulty or leaking equipment.
Our testing consists of properly testing all patient terminals throughout the facility, including high usage areas such as Intensive Care Unites, Emergency Departments, and Operating Rooms. Source equipment such as vacuum pumps, air compressors, medical gas manifolds, bulk stations, master alarm panels, area alarm panels, and zone valves are also tested and inspected to ensure the systems are up to code and functioning properly. All our equipment is calibrated as per the NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) requirements.
Our testing can improve efficiency and reliability of your existing system and can ensure compliance to the standards of NFPA 99 2012, which is accepted by Joint Commission, CMS, and local governing bodies.I Need Annual Testing
Medical Gas Certifications
Medical Gas Verifications are required and are a crucial step to ensure any new, altered, or renovated medical gas system is safe to use for patient use. Our ASSE 6030 certified technicians are trained and experienced with up to date and calibrated equipment that is used in verifying medical gas systems. Each verification consists of different and challenging obstacles that our trained technicians are prepared for. Medical gas verifications can consist of new pipe work or existing systems that have been installed new or altered during a renovation. Items that are tested can range from just patient terminals to new source equipment, area alarms, master alarms, zone valves and more. Per the NFPA 99 2018 126.96.36.199.1.3 a third party must be contracted to perform a medical gas verification and that’s where Compliance Solutions can meet your needs.

Medical gas booms are articulating arms within Operating Rooms, procedure rooms, trauma ED rooms, or Intensive Care Units that provide maneuverability of electrical and medical gases within the room that health care professionals perform operations in. These can be in the form of articulating arms, or ceiling columns that provide vertical movement of these vital tools.
Although these devices provide excellent convenience for health care professionals, problems can and will arise when you add movement to any electrical or gaseous system. NFPA 99 2018 188.8.131.52.3.1 requires these devices to be inspected every 18 months to ensure no life threating issues can occur. Movement with gases and electrical systems can cause hoses and cords to become worn and frayed causing leaks within these moving parts. Leaks of gases such as Oxygen & Nitrous Oxide can result in over oxygenated cavities that increase the risk of internal fires. Our uniquely trained staff at Compliance Solutions are trained to inspect your booms and moving ceiling columns for these issues and will develop a well-documented report that includes all findings and inventory of the booms and ceiling columns located in your facility and keep your facility safe and up to code.I Need Boom Testing
