Power On/Power Off Behavior
The general rules determining the behavior of the monitor when connected to, or disconnected from
power are as follows:
A monitor that was switched on prior to a temporary power loss switches on again when power is
A monitor that was switched off prior to a temporary power loss remains off when power is
An X2 or MP5 switches on automatically when connected to a running host monitor.
When an X2 or MP5 is disconnected from a running host monitor, the X2 or MP5 continues to
run without interruption on battery power.
Setting up the Modules
Decide which measurements you want to make.
Connect the required modules, MMSs, or MMS extensions.
Check that you have the correct patient cables and transducers plugged in. The connectors are
color-coded to the patient cables and transducers for easy identification.
After you switch on the monitor,
Admit your patient to the monitor.
Check that the profile, alarm limits, alarm and QRS volumes, patient category and paced status and
so forth are appropriate for your patient. Change them if necessary.
Refer to the appropriate measurement chapter for further details of how to perform the
measurements you require.
During MR imaging, remove all transducers, sensors and cables from the patient. Induced currents
could cause burns.
Disconnecting from Power
The On/Standby switch does not disconnect the monitor from the ac power source. To disconnect,
unplug the power cable.
Monitoring After a Power Failure
