On February 11, the Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology (Rosstandart) and its regional offices will conduct the all-Russian social (charitable) campaign titled “Be sure! Be healthy!” dedicated to the World Day of the Sick.
The purpose of this campaign is to convey to the residents of Russia the importance of regularly checking the accuracy of household blood pressure monitors in order to prevent cardiovascular diseases.
On this day, experts from the Rosstandart office in Tatarstan will receive citizens free of charge to check the output parameters of their household blood pressure monitors.
“Today, the population has a large number of measuring instruments for medical purposes: blood pressure monitors, thermometers, blood glucose meters, and their number is increasing every year. With their aid, people tend to control their own health. However, such devices must be periodically checked for measurement errors, and if they exceed the permissible level, the device is faulty and can give a false impression of the state of human health. However, the timeliness of medical care may depend on the measurement results of the tonometer”, said Denis Manturov, Minister of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation.
Today, Minister Karimov visited the Nizhnekamsk Institute of Chemical Technology (NICT), where he met with students and examined the training laboratories.
The Minister, together with Principal of the Kazan National Research Technological University Sergey Yushko, Head of the Nizhnekamsk District Executive Committee (Social Issues) Aydar Faretdinov and NICT Director Dmitry Zemsky, made a tour of the state-of-art laboratories of the Institute, where advanced equipment is installed that is similar to the installations at the backbone enterprises of Nizhnekamsk. In particular, he visited the laboratory for energy supply of industrial enterprises and the laboratory for frequency-controlled electric drives and automation equipment for chemical technology production, created with the support of Mitsubishi Electric. While highly appreciating their level of instrumentation, he proposed developing a laboratory within the Industry 4.0 concept as regards equipping it with industrial robots.
At the meeting, the Minister delivered a welcoming speech to teachers and students of the NICT, spoke about the prospects for the development of the petrochemical and oil refining industries, and also answered questions from students about employment, wages in industry, and the environmental situation.
