Metropolitan Medical offering options to owners of discontinued GE® Datex-Ohmeda® Modulus SE / Excel 210 SE 7900 anesthesia machines using 1503-3855-000 flow transducers

Metropolitan Medical Services — a premier anesthesia sales and service supplier — in direct response to a currently unavailable GE part (1503-3855-000 flow sensor), is offering valuable trade-in discounts to customers who own the discontinued anesthesia machines.

Asheville, NC.Recently, GE discontinued sales of the 1503-3855-000 flow transducer for the 7900 ventilator, directly affecting owners of the GE Datex-Ohmeda Modulus SE and Excel 210 SE anesthesia machines with the 7900 ventilator. In response, Metropolitan Medical Services announced today a discount trade-in program specifically for customers in the market who currently own these machines. The GE Aestiva® anesthesia machines that utilize 7900 ventilation technology are not affected by the discontinuation.

The discount program will issue a trade-allowance, based on the model and condition of the anesthesia machine trade-in, towards the purchase of a new Spacelabs® BleaseSirius® anesthesia system or a current generation reconditioned anesthesia machine. Some of the more popular reconditioned anesthesia machines available from Metropolitan include the GE Aestiva, Aespire®, Avance®; the Drager® Apollo®, Fabius GS®, Fabius GS Premium, and the Fabius GS Tiro®.

“We are finding a significant number of customers that are unable to purchase the flow transducers that are critical to the operation of the machine. We can offer solutions to those customers, as well as anyone who may need machine support in the interim,” said Jeff Rhinehart, CEO, Metropolitan Medical Services.

Metropolitan also has thousands of anesthesia machine parts available and ready to ship for medical facilities who may need parts to prolong the life of their GE and Drager anesthesia machines.

Metropolitan Medical has been a leading supplier of new and refurbished anesthesia machines, anesthesia equipment and anesthesia service in the U.S for over 15 years. Metropolitan is dedicated to 100% customer satisfaction, and offers a complete portfolio of solutions for your anesthesia needs.
