Disposing of the Monitor
To avoid contaminating or infecting personnel, the environment, or other equipment, make sure you
disinfect and decontaminate the monitor appropriately before disposing of it in accordance with your
country's laws for equipment containing electrical and electronic parts. For disposal of parts and
accessories such as thermometers, where not otherwise specified, follow local regulations regarding
disposal of hospital waste.
You can disassemble the monitor and the transducers as described in the Service Guide. You will find

The Recycling Passports located on the Philip's web page contain information on the material content
of the equipment, including potentially dangerous materials which must be removed before recycling
(for example, batteries and parts containing mercury or magnesium).
Do not dispose of waste electrical and electronic equipment as unsorted
municipal waste. Collect it separately, so that it can be safely and properly reused,
treated, recycled, or recovered.
