Power-On Self Test


Selecting Display Elements

Basic Operation
The principle method of operating your MX40 is via the Touch Display.
Almost every element on the display is interactive. Display elements
include measurement numerics, information fields, alarm fields,
waveforms, SmartKeys and menus.
Once battery power is supplied, the MX40 performs a power-on self test to
check operational status prior to start-up. Should a failure be detected, an
INOP tone will sound and if possible, the appropriate INOP message for
the failure will be communicated to the Information Center and displayed
A successful power-on self test will then transition the MX40 to the start-up
screen. Selectable background colors can be configured and display on the
screen for assistance with device identification. This can be helpful when
devices are in a pooled use setting.
If the MX40 enters a continuous "boot-up" cycle or the main display does
not appear or update, ensure that you are using a freshly charged
lithium-ion battery or new disposable batteries. If the batteries are fresh and
the device reboots or does not update, remove the device from service and
contact your service personnel.
You must visually check that a waveform is present on the display. You can
access further status information is by touching the status area on the
Touching the Navigation Bar on the right of the display will scroll through
additional display items. Solid downward arrows indicate there are
additional elements that are not currently displayed. The arrows briefly
illuminate when touched. Your selection from the menu also illuminates
when touched.
Touch a display element to get to the actions linked to that element. For
example, touch the Patient Information element to call up the Patient Info
window, or touch the HR numeric to call up the Setup ECG menu. Touch
the ECG waveform to call up the wave selection menu.
