Inspecting the Equipment and Accessories
Perform a visual inspection before every use, and in accordance with your hospital's policy. With the
monitor switched off:
Examine unit exteriors for cleanliness and general physical condition. Make sure that the housings
are not cracked or broken, that everything is present, that there are no spilled liquids and that there
are no signs of abuse.
Inspect all accessories (cables, transducers, sensors and so forth). If any show signs of damage, or
the use-by date has been exceeded, do not use.
Switch the monitor on and make sure the backlight is bright enough. Check that screen is at its full
brightness. If the brightness is not adequate, contact your service personnel or your supplier.
Electrical Shock Hazard: Do not open the monitor or measurement device. Contact with exposed
electrical components may cause electrical shock. Always turn off and remove power before cleaning
the sensor, monitor or measurement device. Do not use a damaged sensor or one with exposed
electrical contacts. Refer servicing to qualified service personnel.
