The thyristor, or four-layer diode, is not used in most newer electronic circuits today, but you could very well encounter a question or two on the CBET exam where a knowledge of thyristor basics would be very useful.
Healthcare technology strategic planning is one of the topics in the CCE examination under the heading of Technology Management, which accounts for 25% of the exam questions, the largest portion of the CCE examination.
Previous ICC Prep articles have covered basic electronic theory such as Kirchhoff’s laws, which expand on Ohm’s laws concerning resistance, current, and voltage. This article moves on to JFETs, MOSFETs, and similarities to bipolar transistors.
Medical gas system testing is one of eight topics under the category of facilities management in the CCE examination. The facilities management category as a whole accounts for 5% of the CCE examination questions.
Many say that leadership is different from management. But as Alan Murray has explained, there is a close relationship between them: “Leadership and management must go hand in hand. They are not the same thing. But they are necessarily linked."
What technology do you use to eliminate or reduce manual data entry and/or the use of paper scratch sheets to log PMs or repair documentation?
I use bar code CE numbers on my equipment and some type of Wi-FI enabled technology that reads bar codes and produces true paperless PM and repair documentation. - 9.1%
We have bar coded CE numbers and use a bar code reader to scan the number and a Wi-FI laptop for portability, but I still have to manually key in and enter PM or repair data. - 16%
Even though we have bar coded CE numbers and a “clinical engineering computer system,” I still have to record repair and PM data on scratch sheets or forms and then key it in manually at a desktop computer. - 74.9%
