In the early days of our profession most of the people working in biomedical instrumentation were highly trained scientists familiar with the hazards involved. Today, however, with the large amount of electronic equipment in hospitals, much of it is by necessity operated by personnel who are trained in other specialties and do not realize some of the inherent dangers that are possible through misuse or thoughtless operation of electronic equipment. Most modern electronic equipment is perfectly safe when used as intended; however, it may become lethal in combination with other “safe” equipment, or when misused.
