Ventilator Systems & Medical EMC Shielding

Medical facilities are one of the epicenters of the Covid-19 pandemic. Their capacity to treat infected patients with life-saving equipment like medical respirators is vital. Severe Covid-19 patients can develop a  life-threatening condition called acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) that requires ventilators to deliver smaller volumes of oxygen and air at high rates.

From the very beginning of the pandemic, hospitals understood the severe implications of ARDS on a predicted onslaught of lung impacted patients and turned to the medical device industry for additional machines and support. Companies like MAJR Products, whose shielding products are critical in preventing electromagnetic interference, are a large part of the ventilator production process.

EMC Shielding

Interruption in medical device performance can be the difference between life and death. Without proper EMI shielding, medical devices, including life-support systems and essential monitoring equipment are vulnerable to signal noise, damage, or total functional impairment. These devices have non-conductive, plastic components that don’t shield Electromagnetic Interference/Radio Frequency Interference (EMI/RFI) from being emitted from or penetrating to other devices. They require shielding systems incorporated into the design and manufacture, ensuring reliable performance.

MAJR Products provides EMI shielding solutions, suppressing EMI/RFI allows medical professionals the confidence in their device’s operation and results will not be affected by unwanted or spurious emissions.

Our products for use in medical ventilators include the following features:

  • Custom Board Level Shielding
  • Fabric Over Foam
  • Conductive Silicone
  • EMI Grounding & Shielded Washers
  • Conductive Coatings
