High Pressure Nitrogen (N2) Dispensing Equipment


Fast-Nurse Healthcare Accreditation Consultants provide special consideration to the placement of the nitrogen out­lets. The primary use of nitrogen gas in hospitals is for the administration of Anesthesia and driving turbo-surgical instruments. The "Turbo Surgical" instruments are required to have different nitrogen-gas pressure levels available. For this reason, Fast-Nurse Accreditation Consultants work with the engineer to provide an adjustable pressure-regulating device near the nitrogen gas outlet and assist with the installation of a nitrogen control panel in the operating room. The installation allows for access and adjustment of pressure settings by a surgical nurse. Fast Nurse Accreditation Consultants assist with "Ceiling Piping" from the nitrogen control panel to provide a convenient source of nitrogen for surgical tools. This installation design prevents hoses from being located on the floor or between the wall outlet and the operating table. Excess hose can be obstructive to the surgical team. Find out more.

  • NFPA Type 1 Electrical System Receptacles
  • NFPA Type 1 Electrical System Charging


The NFPA defines the need for a Type 1 essential electrical system as a facility with critical care areas or electrical life support systems. Any Type 1 essential electrical system must have emergency electrical power. Whatever method of emergency power is used, the need for a supply of 60-HZ (AC) power to the essential electrical system must be established within 10 seconds of power failure. Battery-operated OR lights are required to prevent danger to a patient during the potential 10 seconds of darkness.


For ambulatory units that do not have electric life support systems or critical care areas, the NFPA defines the need for a Type 3 essential electrical system. A Type 3 system would require power for life safety and the termination of the current procedures. Life safety is battery power for lights, fire alarm systems, and emergency exits. The NFPA requires that the life safety power remain for 1.5 hours after interruption of normal power.

​Operating Room Construction Guidelines 


  • Guidelines for Class A Surgery 
  • Guidelines for Class B Surgery 
  • Guidelines for Class C Surgery


The number and size of the OR's in the unit must be determined first. Each OR should have a substerile room adjacent for entry and scrub sinks in the immediate area. There should be one scrub sink per two ORs. In the OR, there should be sufficient space for sterile supplies and equipment as well as an anesthesia machine (if desired) and anesthesia supplies. In general, approximately 3000 sq ft of surgery center space is needed for each OR, with each OR providing 1000-1500 cases per year. In addition, three preoperative and three postoperative bays per OR should be included in the design for maximum efficiency. The OR size should range from 14 × 16 to 14 × 20 sq ft.

Medical Gas & Vacuum System Guidelines 


  • Guidelines for Multiple Pumps 
  • Guidelines for Vacuum Outlets
  • Guidelines for Medical Gas Flow Rates


The National Fire Protection Association ( NFPA ) has set guidelines for electrical systems as well as medical gas and vacuum systems in the health care center. Their recommendations are the basis for a number of Joint Commission and CMS standards and regulations. Ambulatory ORs require level one or level two piped gas and vacuum systems. Most free-standing centers would be either level one or two since the administration of general anesthesia frequently occurs. 


​Each station must have an adequate flow rate for proper delivery to the patient and adequate functioning of connected equipment. All medical piped gases must be identified by a color coding system.
Medical gas and vacuum piping can be delivered through surgical ceiling columns. 
The total oxygen needs and consumption for the facility must be calculated. One must consider the procedures done at the facility, number of oxygen stations, and the number of procedures to be performed monthly. Any facility requiring more than 35,000ft3/month must have a bulk storage system of oxygen. Those requiring less than 35,000 ft3/month can use a cylinder manifold system for oxygen supply.
