We have the horizontal headwall units in our sim lab. They are not very quiet either and if we use them for too long they will start to overheat. Other than that, they work nicely for our simulations.
Friends, if I may ask, whom are your products with? We are looking at replacing non- functional units with those functional. We have no gas options.
Hi Wendy, When we renovated our lab a few years ago, we went with Cogent Patient Training Headwalls. The address for the company is:
Hospital Systems Inc.
750 Garcia Avenue
Pittsburgh, California 94565
You do not need an outside source for gas for these units. They are self contained and have compressors that work for both suction and oxygen. The oxygen is not O2 but compressed air and the suction actually works. Hope this helps. Karen
