The wonders of technology have created a greater peace of mind for many medical offices and hospitals by providing a way to easily, effectively, and safely store and retrieve digital records. Nothing demonstrates this clearer than when a facility experiences an event that damages or destroys imaging and record-keeping equipment. As "set-it-and-forget-it" as backup and recovery technology can seem, these systems still require some proactive treatment.

Whether the event in question is disastrous for a single laptop (dropped on a hard floor) or for dozens of pieces of equipment across a network (flooding in your building's first couple of floors), the following are some industry best practices to help make sure that restoring access to your patient data can be quick and easy, freeing you to respond to the other urgencies that arise in a disaster recovery scenario.

As you serve patients with your OEC C-arm day after day, the occasional breakdown is inevitable. In these situations, one of the best things you can do to minimize your downtime is have a reliable parts supplier that you can reach out to as your first call. Of course, the biggest thing a first-call parts supplier needs to earn your call is consistent stock of the parts you're likely to need for your C-arm.

Below you'll find a list of OEC C-arm parts that Block Imaging has in inventory regularly (some almost constantly). Each of these parts is a solution to a major problem that can put your C-arm down and halt your ability to perform scans. To make the list a little more convenient, we've included each part's number, current average list price, and a sign or two that you may need to replace the more common ones in the near future.
