"It comes down to: Which machine will hold up under our workload? Which machine will need servicing and repairs more often? Which will allow for fewer patient complications? Which will help us wake the patient up faster? Which will have fewer problems and help us avoid downtime in the OR? "If you're talking 50 (thousand) vs. 40 for a machine that's a lot more efficient, that's where it makes sense to spend the extra 10. But if two machines pretty much do the same thing and there's a $10,000 differ- ence, then it's a no-brainer." OSM E-mail jb urg er@outpa tientsurg ery.net .
