      Our products are definitely helpful.
      They have features which make setup quicker and easier for nurses and anaesthetists.
      This frees up time so they can focus on more important tasks related to caring for patients.
      There are also systems built in to the pump which ensure the settings are correct, making the process safer for patients.

      Yes, absolutely. When my students graduate from college, they go on to use the technology we teach them about to generate electricity for your home and to keep factories running efficiently to make all the things we rely on like food, pharmaceuticals, electronic devices, etc. One of the things I use the most in work is a type of computer chip called a microcontroller. If we didn’t have those, it wouldn’t be like going back to the stone age, but it would be like going back to the 1950s.
