If the MX40 enters a continuous "boot-up" cycle, or the main display
does not appear or update, remove the device from service and contact
your service personnel.
Place the MX40 in a pouch or over clothing, or both, during patient use.
The device should not touch the patient's skin during use.
Patients should be instructed not to open the battery compartment
while the MX40 is in use.
Failure on the part of the responsible individual hospital or institution
employing the use of this equipment to implement satisfactory
maintenance as needed may cause undue equipment failure and
possible health hazards.
Because the coverage range of Access Points can sometimes overlap,
including different floor levels, the IntelliVue Device Location feature is
not intended for use when attempting to locate a patient.
Short-range radio connections are subject to interruption due to
interference from other radio sources in the vicinity, including
microwaves, bluetooth devices, and DECT phones. Outside the
frequency band and 5% above and below, i.e. the exclusion band
according to IEC 60601-1-2, the short-range radio connection is immune
up to 3V/m in the frequency range from 80MHz to 2.5 GHz. Depending
on the strength and duration of the interference, the interruption may
occur for an extended period. Any interruption of the signal due to
interference, moving out of range, or for other reasons is indicated with
a Tele Disconnected INOP message on the IntelliVue Patient Monitor.
Philips recommends that when using a pouch to attach the MX40 to your
patient that you consider your patient's condition and are careful about
placement of the straps as the straps could present a strangulation hazard.
