Objective: Along with general hospital assessment opportunity, we explore to optimize ventilator management processes to reduce security risks by using the advanced quality management tools. Methods: Based on the ventilator maintenance statistical data in year 2012, we applied Pareto chart, Pareto curves and fishbone diagrams etc. quality management tools, and conducted PDCA cycle analysis on safety factors of ventilator clinical application. At the end, we summarized the results and provide improvements recommendations. Results: The cumulative proportions fell from 23.6% to 80% range, the human operator, compressor inlet; pipeline leaks and consumables management are a major are major factors. Through fishbone diagram analysis, we categorized them into 4 aspects: personnel, operations, equipment and supplies management. We optimized existing systems and processes from three areas: the device management, supplies management and training. By implementing these improvements plans, the security risk caused by supplies management was basically solved, the effect is very obvious. Conclusion: By using quality management tools, the safety problems during clinical application of ventilator can be reflected directly and clearly, and protect ventilator safe and stability to next level, so that it helps medical equipment management be more scientific, effective and normative.
