Regina, I echo what’s been said about a “no entry&# 8221; zone around the magnet for anyone with medical devices that could be impacted.  We found that marking the floor was not enough to keep the reminder fresh – you can get plastic stanchions and chains very inexp ensively that help remind everyone about the barrier (also reminds folks to remove watches, wallets and cell phones when approaching the magnet!).

The ot her tidbit would be to make sure you have adequate ventilation in the room – preferably install a permanent oxygen monitor and have it regularly calibrated and maintained.  Depending on the configuration of your ro om and ventilation, refilling the liquid helium/nitrogen can create a poten tially hazardous atmosphere in the room, as can system leaks.

Any good lessons le arned from the installation or operation of an NMR from a safety standpoint .  We are just about to start installing a new unit and besides the ma nufacture specs and my CIH’s recommendations,  I wanted to reach out there and see if anyone has any good tidbits.
