3: Operating the Device
CAUTIONS: Be aware of patient cables, including ECG monitoring equipment when used with high frequency
Accessory equipment connected to the Efficia DFM100's data interface must be certified according
to IEC Standard 60950/GB4943 for data-processing equipment or IEC Standard
60601-1/GB9706.1 for electromedical equipment. If in doubt, contact your local Customer Care
Center or representative.
This device is suitable for use in the presence of high-frequency surgical equipment. Following
electrosurgery interference, the equipment returns to the previous operating mode within 10 seconds
without loss of stored data. Measurement accuracy may be temporarily decreased while performing
electrosurgery or defibrillation. This does not affect patient or equipment safety. See the
electrosurgery device's Instructions for Use for information on reducing hazards of burns in the event
of a defect in its equipment.
Do not expose the Efficia DFM100 to x-ray or strong magnetic fields (MRI).
NOTES: This device and its accessories are not intended for home use.
If you use sterilizable paddles, confirm that they have not reached the end of their sterility before
using in an event. See the sterilizable paddles' Instructions for Use.
Keep your Efficia DFM100 Lithium Ion battery charged and a spare battery nearby.
If a daylight saving time change occurs between the start and end of an event, the timestamps for
that event are not adjusted. The next event does use the adjusted time.
The Efficia DFM100 does not require the practice of any special ElectroStatic Discharge (ESD)
