Unassign the CL Pod with its user interface. See the Cableless Measurement Instructions for Use.
Dock the CL Pod at the base station or charger.
Calling Patients
To call a patient currently not near the fetal monitor and base station select the SmartKey
the fetal monitor. The base station will then select one transducer to emit the tone sequence to notify
the patient.
Underwater Monitoring
Only the CL transducers of the Avalon CL and Avalon CTS systems can be used to monitor under
water. You can use them to monitor patients in a bathtub or shower. This does not apply to the
IntelliVue CL SpO
Cableless transmission distances are shorter when monitoring under water. A metal bathtub is likely to
further reduce the operating range.
Never immerse the base station in liquid. You must protect it against water sprays or splashes. Place
the base station where there is no chance of contact with water, or falling into water or other liquids.
Avoid the use of pulsating water jets in the bath or shower while monitoring, as these can be
misinterpreted as an incorrect (or totally artificial) heart rate.
Toco Baseline drift: The accuracy specified for baseline drift cannot be guaranteed for underwater
usage. When using transducers under warm water the temperature increase causes a significant baseline
change due to internal pressure increase. The depth under water at which the Toco transducer is used
also has an effect on the Toco baseline, as the water pressure increases with depth. After immersion,
allow one to two minutes for the pressure to stabilize, then adjust the Toco baseline (between
contractions), and check it frequently.
When using the transducers underwater, the radio transmission range is reduced, and signal loss may
Water-proof belts like M1562B are recommended for the cableless transducers when monitoring in
the pop-up key. A message states then
and CL NBP Pods, do not immerse the CL Pods into water.
