This module tells how to deal with INOPs related to
battery operation. These INOPs are:
Normally, either one of these INOP messages simply
indicates the need to replace the battery in the
transmitter generating the message. But, if the battery is
replaced and the message still occurs, do the following.
Battery life depends on the transmitter being used, the
battery type, and the SpO2 sample rate (SpO
monitored). Refer to the specifications in Appendix A of
the Service and Reference Guide to determine what
battery life to expect.
If the battery life is less than expected, things to check
Remember that simply unplugging the SpO

they are not in use. The RF auto-shutoff feature
does not save battery life because the circuitry is
constantly checking to see if the unit has been
connected to a patient.
