3: Operating the Device

Continued Use

Once in a clinical mode, the Continued Use feature is activated. This feature facilitates continued
treatment of the same patient by retaining the current settings and patient record when the Efficia
DFM100 is turned off for less than 10 seconds. This could occur when turning the knob from
Monitor Mode to AED Mode or when the Therapy knob is accidentally moved to the OFF position.
If you turn the Efficia DFM100 back on within 10 seconds, it retains the most recent:
Alarm settings and conditions
Wave sector settings
Event timing
Volume settings
Vital Signs Trending data
Pacing settings
Synchronized Cardioversion settings
AwRR value
NBP value and measurement frequency
Event Summary
NOTES: The Sync feature remains active if the Efficia DFM100 is turned off for less than 10 seconds.
However, Sync is disabled when AED Mode is activated and must be turned back on upon returning
to Manual Defibrillation Mode.
Pacing stops if you leave Pacer Mode. It must be restarted manually.
The Continued Use feature does not function if both battery and external AC power are removed
from the device, even briefly.
