Radio Frequency Interference
Short range radio connections are subject to interruption due to interference from other radio
sources in the vicinity, including microwaves, bluetooth devices, WLAN devices (802.11b,g,n), and
cordless phones. Depending on the strength and duration of the interference, the interruption may
occur for an extended period. A loss of connection, due to moving out-of-range, interference, or
for other reasons, is indicated with a
on the IntelliVue CL NBP or CL SpO
the Service Guides and the Configuration Guide for details.
To avoid magnetic interference affecting the mode of the pacemaker, ensure that the
Avalon CL base station does not come into close contact with implanted pacemakers.
This equipment generates, uses, and radiates radio-frequency energy, and if it is not installed and
used in accordance with its accompanying documentation, may cause interference to radio
communications. Operation of this equipment in a residential area may cause interference, in
which case the users must take whatever measures may be required to correct the interference.
Do not use cordless/mobile phones or any other portable RF communication system within the
patient vicinity, or within a 1.0 m radius of any part of the fetal monitoring system.
For paced patients: The radiated SRR power of the CL SpO
sources of radio-frequency energy, when used in very close proximity of a pacemaker, might be
sufficient to interfere with pacemaker performance. Due to shielding effects of the body, internal
pacemakers are somewhat less vulnerable than external pacemakers. However, caution should be
exercised when monitoring paced patients.
In order to minimize the possibility of interference, avoid positioning and wearing the Cableless
Measurement Devices in very close proximity to a pacemaker. Consult the pacemaker
manufacturer for information on the RF susceptibility of their products.
