Laser Units

posted in: Technical Insights

A laser is a beam of light that has been tuned to a specific wavelength. Lasers has a wide range of applications, from pointers use by teachers in classrooms ( or used to play with your cat) to cutting diamonds. In the medical industry, lasers are used for cosmetic alterations, cancer treatments, dental and eye surgeries. Lasers can also be used to treat pain and encourage cell functionality.  The laser unit consists of mirrors and a laser medium; when the laser medium is “excited,” the laser beam is produced. The laser beam is invisible to the naked eye due to the frequency and wavelength of over 700nm; as a safety precaution, it is advisable to no look directly into the laser source without adequate protection.


TRH services Preventative Maintenance Program (PMP):

While onsite completing our annual preventative maintenance program, we will check the following:

  • Physical inspection of the laser unit and all its applicators and attachments to ensure there is no damage or signs of failure.
  • Check to ensure that there are safety glasses with the unit. Laser units should not be operated without proper safety glasses; doing so can cause permanent damage to the eyes. Everyone in and around the area where laser treatment is taking place should have adequate eye protection.
  • Verify that the build-in safe features such as the lockout key and operator’s password are operating as per manufacture specification.
  • An electrical safety test ensures the device is safe to be plugged in, and in the case of an electrical failure inside the unit, the end-user is safe from electric shocks.
  • Finally, we verify the laser’s output to ensure the output levels are appropriate for the laser application. Using the wrong laser unit or having a unit with too high an output for its intended application will harm patients. Here at TRH Services, the safety of your patients is our highest priority.
