Question about Sanyo SR-2410 Compact Refrigerator

1 Answer

Inconsistent temperatures I work in various small medical clinics. We all have similar refrigerators for vaccines. We have a problem with the refrigerators temps going very high and we have had loss of some very expensive vaccines lately. We had one refrigerator that actually went to 17 degrees and we had to dispose of all the vaccines in that refrigerator (several hundreds of dollars of loss). Most often the problem is that the refrigerators overheat and the temps get up to near 50 degrees (which is also the death knell to the vaccines). The refrigerators are installed. Some are sitting out on the open floor with airspace all around them (at least 5 inches) and others are in small cabinet spaces with some less than 5 inch spacing. All of them have the same problem. Some of the ones installed into the cabinets seem more stable than ones in the open. I have adjusted the thermostat on one to watch what happens and it cools down but, I am concerned that the temp may fall in the night when the store is closed. Help!

I am in uk not us so this is guidance only. you should not really use domestic refrigeration for storage of drugs etc. this is because the temperature can vary considerably in the cabinet. you need medical refrigerators which have a fan to circulate in the cabinet.during the defrost cycle, the temp can rise considerably and this may be your problem. also if the doors are opened frequently, the fridge may not be able to cope.how high is your ambient temp?

How to label medical folders

Each hospital determines its medical records system. There are both federal and state laws covering what is contained within medical records. The labeling system, again, may vary from hospital to hospital. Training in the application of such would be internal. Various companies manufacture labels applied to medical files but the use of such labels is not determined by such, rather by the medical organization. If you are curious to know how to organize medical labels for a hospital or practice, that either requires in-house training or general training in medical records in courses.

I have personally built physical medical records files from scratch but only in compliance with the system in place. There is the additional matter of data entry tying the physical record to the electronic records system. For large hospital systems, records may be archived offsite and retrieved by contracted for logistics services. X-ray records in the past were held in temperature controlled room; the rooms smelled of vinegar due to the decomposition of such records across time. The consistency of labeling of these and other medical records is determined by the controlling government departments and the particular health organizations and the hospitals and clinics there in.

I have itchy spots on many parts of my body. Could this be a reaction to the shingles vaccination which I had almost 2 weeks ago?

Hello Friend,
Here is a picture of shingles just to see if those itchy spots on your body can be shingles.
shingles-2-l0kpbnxoziwwkysmgfhgmd4c-5-1.jpg One of the distinguishing hallmark of shingles is that it has the pattern of following a line covered on your body by its accompanying spinal nerve. Oh shingles, how clever of you to have a pathway!
Now given the nature of vaccinations, I believe if people had any idea of what was being injecting into those immunizations they would be mortified, after all that is one way to build your immunity by injecting yourself with the very thing you're building defenses against. There are other healthier, safer ways to build your immunity. Case in point, I am a TRUE believer that if our immune systems were strong enough in the first place there would be no need for vaccinations. Enclose is a referral link to help you with those shingles should that be it. Fast Shingles Cure The 1 Shingles Treatment Method Available

We have a roper frig that we use for vaccine storage, the freezer does not stay cold enought for their storage; if we adjust to freezer temp for vaccines then refrigerator is too cold for storage

Good day,
Usually caused by the machine in a cool area or room, along with the machine not getting enough door action, both freezer and fresh food.

Domestic refrigerators are designed to be used as just that. Domestic refrigerators.
Normal kitchen temperatures, followed by minimum of 7 freezer door openings per day spread over 14 hours as well as 22 to 26 fresh food door openings over the same period of time.

In other words, it's not getting enough activity daily. Common problem in doctor offices.

The best model for that type of application in the past was the Amana bottom freezer model. where the primary control was located in the freezer, nailing the freezer temp, and the top controlled by a pneumatic damper controlling the fresh food section, but I do not know if their current model still uses that system.

One option,space permitting is a small chest type freezer added to what you have.

I work in a medical office and our company just purchased an LG Model # LFC20740SW to accomadate more room to hold our vaccines. Well are ranges for refrigerator and freezer have to be within certain temps...

You need not worry about the defrost cycle. It just warms the external walls of the refrigirator and in the interior it will be about 20-25°C which i guess will be good enough to store vaccines. There is a work around to remove the deffrost thing but if defroster or the fan on the evaporater(inside coil)when the evaporater does not defrost it causes ice build up on it,this does not allow air to flow through it.The result of this is that the freezer will stay cold for awhile but the refrigerator section will not get cold enough.
