This test checks the performance of the CO
parts are replaced.
This test uses calibration equipment that can be ordered (see "Replacement Parts" for the part
number). The procedure is summarised in the following steps. Refer to the documentation
accompanying the equipment for detailed instructions.
• Standard tools, e.g. screwdriver, tweezers
• Electronic flowmeter, M1026-60144.
• Gas calibration equipment:
In addition you will need a local barometric pressure rating received from a reliable local
source (airport, regional weather station or hospital weather station) which is located at the
same altitude as the hospital.
• Barometric Pressure Check and Calibration, if required.
• Leakage Check
• Pump Check
• Flow Check and Calibration, if required.
• Noise Check
All steps should be performed in the same session.

calibration for the sidestream Extension consists of the following steps:
Cal Check and Calibration, if required.
Cal Verification using 2nd cal gas
Go into Service Mode and select CO
Connect a FilterLine to the sidestream CO
Check the status line at the bottom of the screen. It will display "CO
reading (ambient/cell) xxx/yyy" where xxx is the ambient pressure and yyy is the
measured cell pressure. (The values are displayed with a resolution of 2 mmHg up
to 475 mmHg and a resolution of 1 mmHg from 475 mmHg to 825 mmHg.) Check
whether the ambient pressure value (x1) matches (within the acceptable tolerance of
±12mm Hg) the reference value you have received. If so, proceed to the Leakage
Check. If the value is not correct, calibrate as follows.
