From the Monitor Revision menu, select the monitor component for which you need
Once you understand the basic operation principles, you can get ready for monitoring.
Inspecting the Monitor
If the monitor is mechanically damaged, or if it is not working properly, do not use it for any
monitoring procedure on a patient. Contact your service personnel.
Before you start to make measurements, carry out the following checks on the monitor.
– Check for any mechanical damage.
– Check all the external cables, plug-ins and accessories.
Always ensure that the battery is loaded in the battery compartment when monitoring a patient,
even when the monitor is running on external power.
If you are using battery power, ensure that the battery has sufficient power for monitoring. Before
using a battery for the first time, you must charge it, following the instructions given in the section
on Charging Batteries.
Measurements from measurement extensions attached to the monitor are only available when the
monitor is operating from AC mains power. The measurement extensions are not active when the
monitor is operating from battery power.
Check all the functions of the instrument that you need to monitor the patient, and ensure that the
instrument is in good working order.
Press the on/off switch on the monitor for one second. The monitor performs a self test and is then
ready to use. If you see a message such as CO
starting to monitor that measurement.
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 restored.
• When AC mains power is lost, a battery powered monitor continues to run without interruption on
