1 General information

Intended use

The Propaq CS monitor is intended to be used by skilled clinicians for multiparameter vital signs monitoring of neonatal, pediatric, and adult patients in health care facility bedside applications. It is also intended for intra-facility transport.

The ECG channel is intended for five-lead or three-lead ECG monitoring.

The Respiration (RESP) channel is intended to detect the rate or absence of respiratory effort, deriving the signal by measuring the ac impedance between selected terminals of ECG electrodes.

The Invasive Pressure (IBP) channel is intended for measuring arterial, venous, and intracranial pressures (and umbilical artery and vein pressures for neonates) using invasive transducers.

The Noninvasive Blood Pressure (NIBP) channel is intended for indirectly measuring arterial pressures using an inflatable cuff. If ECG is also monitored, the Propaq CS Smartcuf™ software algorithm automatically synchronizes the NIBP measurement process to the occurrences of the R-wave, increasing accuracy in cases of extreme artifact and diminished pulses. The operator may disable or enable the Smartcuf algorithm in the NIBP Menu.

The Temperature (TEMP) channel is intended to measure temperature using an attachable probe.

The Pulse Oximetry (SpO2) channel is intended to noninvasively measure oxygen saturation of arteriolar hemoglobin at a peripheral measurement site.

The Capnography (CO2) channel is intended to noninvasively measure the following vital signs or events: End-tidal CO2 (ETCO2), Inspired CO2 (INCO2), Breath Rate, and Apnea.

Propaq CS monitors that do not include CO2 or printer options are able to withstand light rain exposure over short periods of time (uniform distribution of approximately 1 mm of water/ minute for 10 minutes or less).

This guide was written for clinicians. Although this guide may describe some monitoring techniques, Welch Allyn® expects that you are a trained clinician who knows how to take and interpret a patient’s vital signs. This monitor has been designed as a quality monitor; however, inherent limitations require that good clinical judgment always prevail.

General warnings and cautions

Familiarize yourself with all warnings and cautions before using the Propaq CS monitor. In addition to the following, other warnings and cautions appear throughout this manual.

WARNING Safe interconnection between the Propaq CS monitor and other devices must comply with applicable medical systems safety standards such as IEC 60101-1-1. Within certain governmental jurisdictions, all interconnected accessory equipment must be labeled by an approved testing laboratory. After interconnection with accessory equipment, risk (leakage) current and grounding requirements must be maintained.

WARNING This monitor is to be operated by qualified personnel only. The operator of this monitor should read this entire manual and all accessory directions for use before operating the monitor.

WARNING Before you use a Propaq CS monitor on a new patient, always turn off the monitor for a few seconds, then turn it on again. This clears the prior patient’s trend values, alarm limit settings, and NIBP cuff inflation target.

WARNING Always check the patient mode when monitoring a new patient. The patient mode determines default alarm limits, maximum cuff inflation pressure, and internal algorithm settings.

WARNING The monitor may not meet its performance specifications if stored or used outside the specified temperature and humidity ranges.

WARNING Place the Propaq monitor and accessories in locations where they cannot harm the patient if they fall from their shelf or mount. Lift the monitor only by its handle; do not lift it by any attached cables.

Learn Propaq CS operation with Inservice Mode

You can practice using the Propaq CS monitor with the in-service mode of operation.

The in-service mode cannot be activated while you are monitoring a patient. In in-service mode, the monitor display and all printouts include the message SIMULATING or SIMULATED DATA.

To practice with your Propaq CS monitor:

1.Disconnect all patient cables connected to the monitor. You can leave the NIBP cuff connected to the monitor so you can take NIBP measurements.

2.To temporarily remove customized alarm settings, press Home, SETUP, MORE,

CHANGE, SETUP, USE NOW, YES.

3.To put the Propaq monitor in (non-alarming) Inservice Mode 1, press Home, SETUP,

WAVE SELECT, INSERVICE.

4.To set the Propaq monitor in (alarming) Inservice Mode 2, press Home, SETUP,

WAVE SELECT, INSERVICE.

Within 5 seconds, the monitor alarms because the “patient’s” vital signs fall outside the alarm limit ranges.

5.Confirm the following:

The monitor is sounding an alarm A vital sign numeric is flashing

The small red light in the top right corner of the monitor is flashing The SILENCE and LIMITS keys are showing on the screen

6.To silence the alarm tone for 90 seconds, press Silence/Reset or SILENCE.

Visual alarm indications remain, and the alarm tone resets after the 90-second silence period.

7.To bring the Propaq monitor back into the (non-alarming) Inservice Mode 1, press

INSERVICE.

The “patient’s” vital sign readings will return to acceptable levels within the alarm limit range.

8.While in the inservice mode, you can press any monitor keys (except the AUTO/MANUAL key in the NIBP Menu) to change a function setting. For example, you can change ECG and RESP waveform sizes, set alarm limits, or set custom settings.

You can also apply the NIBP cuff to yourself and take NIBP measurements.

9.Turn off the Propaq monitor.

Any previously set custom patient mode settings are restored when you turn it on again.

Under these conditions, if the monitor fails to generate visual or auditory alarm indications, carefully repeat the above steps. If the monitor is still unresponsive, remove it from circulation and take it to your facility’s biomedical service department for evaluation.

General information

Welch Allyn Propaq CS Vital Signs Monitor

Note The inservice mode is not available if the monitor detects that a sensor has been connected (except for an NIBP cuff) or the NIBP Automatic Mode has been selected. If the monitor is in inservice mode and you connect a sensor (except for an NIBP cuff) or press the NIBP AUTO/MANUAL key, the monitor will turn off power to exit the inservice mode, and then turn on in the normal operating mode.

The pacemaker signal indicators are not displayed in the inservice mode.

Prepare the Propaq CS monitor for a new patient

WARNING Before you use a Propaq CS monitor on a new patient, always turn it off for a few seconds and then turn it on again. This clears the prior patient’s trend values, alarm limit settings, and NIBP cuff inflation target.

1.Press the gray recessed MONITOR button on the right side of the monitor to turn the monitor off (if it is on). Press it again to turn the monitor on. The monitor displays the powerup screen for about 10 seconds, then displays the Main Menu. The monitor is in the powerup patient mode with the associated settings.

2.Confirm that the monitor emits a tone. If the monitor has SpO2, listen for two tones and confirm both speakers are working.

Note Check the battery voltage level on the powerup screen (or check it on the Time/Day window: Home, SETUP, MORE, MORE). If the battery

voltage is 7.4V or less or a low battery message is displayed, connect

Home

the monitor to an ac power adapter to recharge the battery (page 20). Connecting the adapter does not interrupt patient monitoring.

3 Monitoring

Perform ECG/RESP monitoring

WARNING Impedance pneumography detects respiratory effort via changes in chest volume; therefore, impedance pneumography can be used to detect central apnea. However, apnea episodes with continued respiratory effort, such as obstructive apnea and mixed apnea, may go undetected. Also, artifact due to patient motion, apnea mattress shaking, or electrocautery use may cause apnea episodes to go undetected. Always monitor and set alarms for SpO2 when using impedance pneumography to monitor respiratory function.

WARNING The Propaq CS monitor automatically rejects cardiovascular artifact. This function is dependent upon accurate ECG R-wave detection. Therefore, always select the ECG lead with the most prominent QRS complex when monitoring respiration via impedance pneumography.

WARNING Don’t place the Propaq CS monitor with RESP in close proximity to another respiration monitor because the RESP measurement frequencies may interfere with one another.

WARNING Because pacemaker pulses in some instances may be falsely counted as breaths, impedance pneumography is not recommended for use on paced patients.

WARNING Motion artifact can cause incorrect breath rate or heart rate readings. Minimize patient motion whenever possible.

WARNING If a disconnected lead is in too close proximity to other electrical devices, it may cause false heart rate, a failure to detect apnea, or a failure to display a Lead Fail message.

WARNING The Propaq CS monitor does not provide arrhythmia analysis. Therefore, arrhythmias are not analyzed and may cause the monitor to display inaccurate heart rates.

WARNING The Propaq CS monitor shows + + + for HR numerics between 301 and 350 beats per minute. Above 350 beats per minute, it may display incorrectly low heart rates, due to intermittent picking of R-waves.

22

Monitoring

Welch Allyn Propaq CS Vital Signs Monitor

WARNING High-intensity radio frequency (RF) energy from external sources, such as an improperly connected electrosurgical unit, can induce heat into electrodes and cables which can cause burns on the patient. Reading errors and damage to equipment may also result. This hazard can be reduced by (1) avoiding the use of small ECG electrodes, (2) selecting ECG electrode attachment points remote from the surgical site and from the electrosurgical return electrode, (3) using electrosurgical return electrodes with the largest practical contact area, and

(4) assuring proper application of the electrosurgical return electrode to the patient.

WARNING Verify patient mode. Incorrect patient mode may result in inaccurate heart rates and inappropriate alarm settings.

WARNING To help prevent injury, use the provided garment clips to route the ECG cables away from the patient’s head.

WARNING Use of ECG cables with loose or faulty detachable lead wires may cause erratic behavior of the ECG waveform, SpO2 (C-LOCK), and NIBP (Smartcuf) due to intermittent ECG lead wire connections.

WARNING Use only ECG safety cables that are designed so that they cannot accidently be plugged into an ac mains outlet or make contact with other hazardous electrical potentials including earth ground. To prevent damage during defibrillation, don’t use ECG cables without 1 kΩ series resistors.

WARNING Before you use a Propaq CS monitor on a new patient, always turn it off for a few seconds, then turn it on again. This clears the prior patient’s trend values and alarm limit settings.

Caution To protect the Propaq CS monitor from damage during defibrillation, for accurate ECG information, and for protection against noise and other interference, use only ECG electrodes and cables specified or supplied by Welch Allyn (these cables have the required current-limiting resistors). Follow recommended application procedures.

Impedance pneumography (RESP) is not recommended for use with high frequency ventilation.

Since RESP is derived from the same leads as the ECG channel, the Propaq CS monitor determines which signals are cardiovascular artifact and which signals are a result of respiratory effort. If the breath rate is within five percent of the heart rate or a multiple or sub-multiple of the heart rate, the monitor may ignore breaths and trigger an apnea alarm.

When monitoring RESP it is highly recommended that you use SpO2 monitoring as a backup monitoring method.

It is recommended that Propaq CS monitor respiratory measurements not be made in close proximity to electrically radiated equipment. When the Propaq CS monitor is operated per EN 60601-1-1 (radiated RF immunity 3 V/m), field strengths above 2 V/m may cause erroneous measurements at various frequencies.

The Propaq CS monitor counts as “breaths” respiratory efforts that are larger than two times background cardiovascular artifact.

Even though the Propaq CS monitor contains fully isolated patient-connected circuitry, it has not been specially designed for direct application on a patient’s heart.

Use only with accessories provided or recommended in the Welch Allyn Products and Accessories booklet.

Directions for Use

Monitoring

23

Severe artifact and interference (such as defibrillation interference) can cause the waveform to move off the display for a few seconds before it is restored.

Prepare for ECG/RESP monitoring

1.Inspect the ECG cable and replace it if it shows signs of wear, breakage, or fraying.

2.Select the appropriate patient mode. To change patient modes, from the Main Menu press SETUP, MORE, CHANGE, then the desired patient mode (NEONATAL,

PEDIATRIC, or ADULT) and then YES.

3.Select electrode sites on the patient.

Choose flat areas; avoid fatty areas and major muscles.

4.Shave or clip hair from electrode sites, thoroughly clean skin, and lightly rub dry.

You may use soap and water, isopropyl alcohol or special skin preparation pads. To avoid allergic reactions to electrodes, refer to the electrode manufacturer’s directions.

5.If you are using pre-gelled electrodes, make sure the electrode date is not expired and the gel is intact and not dried out. For best results, use only silver/silver chloride electrode.

If you are using non-gelled electrodes, apply a 1/4- to 1/2-inch mound of gel over the electrode contact area.

For best product performance and measurement accuracy, do not use stainless steel needle electrodes, squeeze bulb electrodes, or electrodes with dissimilar metals. Do not use electrodes from more than one manufacturer on the same patient.

6.Attach lead wires to the electrodes before applying them to the patient. Apply the electrodes to the patient as shown.

7.Plug the ECG cable into the ECG connector on the monitor's left side panel.

8.Support the ECG cable so it does not stress the electrode wires, ECG cable connectors, or electrodes.

9.If an electrosurgical unit will be used, place the ECG cable and electrode wires as far as possible from the surgical site and from the electrosurgical return electrode and its cables. This minimizes interference.

Although the ECG channel contains electrosurgical interference suppression (ESIS) circuitry, noise artifact may be displayed on the ECG trace while an electrosurgical device is in use. Choose electrode placement to minimize interference.

10.Look for an ECG waveform and heart rate on the monitor. Depending on how your monitor is programmed, a beep tone may occur with each detected QRS.

If there is no waveform, check the electrodes, wires, cable, and the monitor for a possible misconnection or lead fault.

11.To set up the ECG/RESP display, from the Main Menu press ECG/RESP to display the first ECG/RESP menu:

26

Monitoring

Welch Allyn Propaq CS Vital Signs Monitor

 

Always use Extended Mode when observing ST

 

segment morphology on the display or printer. Although

 

Monitor Mode is useful to minimize baseline wander

 

due to artifact, ST segments can be distorted in Monitor

 

Mode. This can potentially cause underestimation of ST

 

elevation and overestimation of ST depression. Although

 

the monitor does not have automated ST segment

 

monitoring, ST segments may be accurately displayed

 

and printed in Extended Mode.

RESP LEAD

Selects the RESP lead: Ld1 (RA-LA) or Ld2 (RA-LL). RESP lead

 

selection is independent of ECG lead selection.

 

Choose the RESP lead that gives you the best signal. If

 

neither signal is adequate, experiment with nonstandard

 

electrode placement such as placing the RA and LA

 

electrodes on the respective mid-axillary lines just above

 

the level of the nipples.

RESP MONITORING

Turns RESP on or off.

15. Set alarms according to your facility’s standards.

Use the ECG filter to display a better waveform

If the ECG waveform appears unclear or distorted, make sure the monitor ECG filter is properly set to reduce interference from your facility’s ac power frequency. To check the filter:

1.Press SETUP, MORE, MORE, SERVICE, YES to access the Service Menu.

2.Press MORE, MORE, SETTINGS to display the Settings Menu.

Using the Propaq CS monitor with pacemaker patients

WARNING Pacemaker signals can differ from one pacemaker to the next. The Association for Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) cautions that “in some devices, rate meters may continue to count the pacemaker rate during occurrences of cardiac arrest or some arrhythmias. Do not rely entirely upon rate meter alarms. All pacemaker patients should be kept under close or constant observation.”

WARNING The presence of much pacer-like noise can cause the displayed heart rate to be erratic even though the ECG trace may look undistorted with the pacer indicator off. To help avoid this noise problem, use fresh ECG electrodes and make sure the ECG cable lead wires make good connections.

If the patient being monitored has a pacemaker, the Propaq CS monitor detects and can indicate the occurrence of pacemaker signals.

1.To access the monitor pacer indicator, from the Main Menu press ECG/RESP, MORE, and then NEXT to select the PACER DISPLAY.

2.Press CHANGE to set the PACER DISPLAY either ON or OFF.

When ON, the monitor displays (and prints on printouts) vertical dashed lines to indicate each time a pacemaker signal is detected. (If the pacemaker signal is strong enough, the monitor also displays it as a waveform “spike.”)

Welch Allyn Propaq CS Vital Signs Monitor

Perform Invasive Blood Pressure (IBP) monitoring

WARNING If electrocautery is used, always avoid using any transducer with a conductive (metal) case that is electrically connected to its cable shield. Using a conductive transducer case with such a shield connection risks high-frequency burns at the ECG electrodes if the transducer case becomes earth grounded.

WARNING Although complete disconnections of invasive pressure transducers will be detected by the normal alarm functions, partial disconnection will not be detected, nor will the use of some incompatible transducers. The user must exercise reasonable measures to ensure that approved transducers are used and that pressure transducers are connected properly.

WARNING Before you use a Propaq CS monitor on a new patient, always turn it off for a few seconds, then turn it on again. This clears the prior patient’s trend values and alarm limit settings.

WARNING For best product performance and measurement accuracy, use only accessories supplied by Welch Allyn or recommended in Welch Allyn Products and Accessories. Use accessories according to your facility’s standards and the manufacturer’s recommendations. Always refer to the manufacturer’s Directions for Use. Do not use light-sensitive disposable transducers.

1.Inspect the transducer cable and transducer dome for wear, breakage, or fraying. Replace any worn or broken accessory.

2.Set up the transducer according to your hospital's procedures. Always refer to the transducer manufacturer’s Directions for Use. If the transducer is a disposable unit with separate cable, connect the transducer to the transducer cable.

3.Plug the transducer (or transducer cable) into an invasive pressure connector on the monitor left side panel.

4.To zero the transducer, open the transducer's stopcock to atmospheric air. Wait a few seconds for the transducer to settle.

Before zeroing, make sure the transducer cable is properly connected to the monitor and the transducer is open to atmospheric air and positioned at the same level as the patient’s heart. The monitor will not zero the transducer if the pressure waveform is pulsatile, there is too much signal noise, or the transducer’s offset is too great.

5.If the ZERO menu is not displayed, from the Main Menu press INVASIVE PRESSURE, and then ZERO P1 (or ZERO P2). The word ZEROING appears in the numerics window during zeroing.

If you want to cancel the zeroing process, press CANCEL.

6.Wait for a brief tone to sound and the word ZEROED to appear in the blood pressure numerics window.

7.Close the transducer's stopcock. The monitor displays the pressure scale and numerics.

8.If the transducer will not zero, the monitor displays the words ZERO REJECTED in the numerics window. Press CANCEL and try zeroing again beginning at step 4. The monitor does not display numerics or scales until an acceptable zero reference is established.

You can rezero an IBP transducer at any time after you again open the transducer stopcock to atmospheric air. If the transducer has already produced pressure readings, rezeroing provides a new zero reference for the monitor.

If the zero value is not accepted, the monitor continues to use the previous zero reference and displays numerics and waveforms based on that value.

If the transducer still does not zero, try another transducer or another cable.

WARNING If you press ZERO after an invasive pressure channel has been successfully zeroed and the channel is currently monitoring a pressure waveform, the message ZERO REJECTED will display in the IBP numerics window. This message continues to display in place of the valid invasive pressure numerics until you press Home, INVASIVE PRESSURE, and then CANCEL in the IBP menu. If an IBP alarm occurs while ZERO REJECTED is displayed in place of IBP numerics, the IBP numerics will not flash to indicate invasive pressure is in alarm.

Welch Allyn Propaq CS Vital Signs Monitor

Take a Noninvasive Blood-Pressure (NIBP) reading

WARNING Periodically observe the patient’s limb to make sure that the circulation is not impaired for a prolonged period of time. Also make sure the cuff is properly placed according to the following instructions. Prolonged impairment of circulation or improper cuff placement can cause bruising.

WARNING The Propaq CS monitor should never be used to monitor NIBP on one patient while simultaneously monitoring ECG on another patient.

WARNING If a noninvasive blood pressure measurement is suspect, repeat the measurement. If you are still uncertain about the reading, use another method.

WARNING Do not attempt to take NIBP pressures on patients during cardiopulmonary bypass.

WARNING When monitoring NIBP, match the monitor patient mode to the NIBP cuff. For neonates, set the monitor to Neonatal Mode unless the circumference of the limb is too large for the cuff. In that case, use the Pediatric Mode. Be aware, however, that the maximum cuff inflation limits are based on the patient mode, not the cuff; the maximum cuff inflation limits for Pediatric Mode are greater than for Neonate Mode (see “NIBP specifications” on page 99 for values).

WARNING Before you use a Propaq CS monitor on a new patient, always turn it off for a few seconds, then turn it on again. This clears the prior patient’s NIBP cuff inflation target, trend values, and alarm limit settings.

At powerup, the Propaq CS monitor has an NIBP default inflation pressure (cuff inflation target) based on the patient mode (see “NIBP specifications” on page 99 for the values). After each NIBP measurement, the monitor adjusts the target inflation pressure to optimize the next NIBP measurement. To avoid possible patient discomfort, turn the monitor off and then on between different patients to reset the cuff inflation target to the default value.

NIBP measurements can be adversely affected by poorly fitting cuffs or improper cuff placement. Be sure to select the appropriate cuff and apply the cuff properly according to the directions in this manual.

Note NIBP measurements are affected by normal physiological pressure variations from reading to reading.

Improve NIBP accuracy with Smartcuf

NIBP measurements can be adversely affected by many factors such as cardiac arrhythmias, sudden changes in blood pressure, body motions such as convulsions or shivering, bumping the cuff, vibration, vehicle motion, or weak pulses.

The patented Smartcuf software filtering technology greatly increases NIBP measurement accuracy in the presence of motion artifact or diminished pulses. Smartcuf synchronizes the NIBP reading with the R-wave of the patient’s ECG to eliminate noise created by external stimuli such as patient motion or vibration. The monitor must perform ECG monitoring while using Smartcuf.

Directions for Use

Monitoring

33

To enable the Smartcuf filter:

Connect the ECG leads to the patient and perform ECG monitoring during NIBP.

From the Main Menu, press NIBP to display the NIBP Menu (shown on page 34) and set Smartcuf to ON.

If artifact is so severe while Smartcuf is enabled that it affects the accuracy of an NIBP measurement, that measurement is marked with a special symbol on the display and on printouts:

This symbol indicates the NIBP reading was taken in the presence of high artifact while monitoring ECG with Smartcuf enabled. Artifact can affect accuracy. To help reduce artifact, see step 6 on page 35.

3. Place the cuff on the limb.

Cuff applied evenly and snugly with bottom edge of cuff one inch above antecubital fossa.

Possible cuff placements for neonates

If possible, place it at the same level as the heart. If above the heart, add 1.9 mmHg to the NIBP measurement for every inch above the heart. If below the heart, subtract 1.9 mmHg for every inch.

The cuff should be snug, but not uncomfortable. The hose must not be kinked or pinched.

Make sure the cuff tubing is centered over the brachial artery.

If SpO2 will also be monitored, place the NIBP cuff on a different limb than the SpO2 sensor to help reduce unnecessary SpO2 alarms.

START/STOP

Starts and stops NIBP measurements. During the measurement,

 

you can press STOP (or the Start/Stop NIBP key at the right side

 

of the screen) to stop the measurement and vent the cuff.

 

If the Propaq CS monitor does not recognize a valid NIBP reading, it

 

automatically attempts another measurement while displaying a

 

retry message. The monitor attempts up to two retries (depending

 

on patient mode and settings).

AUTO/MANUAL Switches between Automatic and Manual Mode. In Automatic Mode, the monitor automatically takes measurements at the selected interval.

INTERVAL

Selects the measurement interval for Automatic Mode NIBP

 

measurements: 1, 2, 3, 5, 10, 15, 30, or 60 minutes.

 

For intervals 5, 10, 15, 30, or 60, measurements occur at

 

corresponding intervals past the hour. For example, if 5 is selected

 

at 10:47:20, the measurements occur at 10:50, 10:55, 11:00, etc.

 

For intervals 1, 2, or 3 minutes, measurements begin 1, 2, or 3

 

minutes after the interval is set. For example, if 1 is selected at

 

10:47:20, the next measurement starts at 10:48:20.

TURBOCUF

Automatically starts NIBP measurements and takes as many as

 

possible within five minutes. To stop the Turbocuf Mode, press

 

STOP or the Start/Stop NIBP key.

 

After you stop the Turbocuf Mode or the monitor completes the

 

five-minute Turbocuf cycle, the monitor returns to the previous

 

NIBP mode (Automatic or Manual).

SMARTCUF

Enables or disables the Smartcuf motion artifact filter. NIBP

 

measurements can still be taken when Smartcuf is off. Artifact may

 

interfere with the accuracy of NIBP measurements with Smartcuf

 

off.

6.If motion artifact such as shivering, coughing, or other motion interferes with NIBP readings, do the following:

Position the patient’s limb away from the body so the applied cuff is not in contact with the patient’s body or any other object such as a bed rail. Try to keep the cuff at the same level as the heart.

Make sure the Smartcuf filter is ON. Make sure ECG leads are properly connected to the patient and perform ECG monitoring during NIBP. (ECG monitoring is required for Smartcuf.)

7.Set alarm limits according to your facility’s standards.

Note When the SEARCH message appears in an NIBP TREND display or printout, it indicates that the monitor was not able to complete an NIBP measurement during that time period.

Perform SpO2 monitoring

WARNING Oxygen saturation measurements using pulse oximetry are highly dependent on proper placement of the sensor and patient conditions. Patient conditions such as shivering and smoke inhalation may result in erroneous oxygen saturation readings. If pulse oximetry measurements are suspect, verify the reading using another clinically accepted measurement method, such as arterial blood gas measurements on a co-oximeter.

WARNING Tissue damage can be caused by incorrect application or use of a sensor (e.g., wrapping the sensor too tightly, applying supplemental tape, failing to periodically inspect the sensor site, leaving a sensor on too long in one place). Refer to the Directions for Use provided with each sensor for specific instructions on application and use, and for description, warnings, cautions, and specifications.

WARNING Sensors exposed to ambient light while not applied to a patient can exhibit semi-normal saturation readings. Be sure the sensor is securely placed on the patient and check its application often to ensure accurate readings.

WARNING Before you use a Propaq CS monitor on a new patient, always turn off the monitor for a few seconds, then turn it on again. This clears the prior patient’s trend values, alarm limit settings, and NIBP cuff inflation target.

WARNING The pulse oximetry channel must NOT be used as an apnea monitor.

WARNING Inaccurate measurements may be caused by venous pulsations.

WARNING The pulse oximetry option can be used during defibrillation, but the readings may be inaccurate for a short time.

WARNING A very sudden and substantial change in pulse rate can result in erroneous pulse rate readings. Be sure to validate the patient data and patient condition before intervention or change in patient care.

WARNING Interfering Substances: Carboxyhemoglobin may erroneously increase readings; the level of increase is approximately equal to the amount of carboxyhemoglobin present. Methemoglobin may also cause erroneous readings. Dyes, or any substances containing dyes, that change usual arterial pigmentation may cause erroneous readings.

Each SpO2 sensor is designed for application to a specific site on the patient within a certain size range. To obtain optimal performance, use an appropriate sensor and apply it as described in the sensor’s directions for use.

If excessive ambient light is present, cover the sensor site with opaque material to block the light. Failure to do so may result in inaccurate measurements. Light sources that can affect performance include surgical lights (especially those with a xenon light source), bilirubin lamps, fluorescent lights, infrared heating lamps, and direct sunlight.

If NIBP will be monitored while using SpO2, place the NIBP cuff on a different limb than the SpO2 sensor to help reduce unnecessary SpO2 alarms. For optimal measurements, avoid placing the SpO2 sensor on the same limb as an arterial catheter or intravascular line.

Loss of pulse signal can occur if the sensor is too tight, there is excessive ambient light, an NIBP cuff is inflated on the same limb as the sensor, there is arterial occlusion proximal

Perform SpO2 monitoring with Masimo option

1.Attach the sensor to the patient according to the sensor manufacturer's instructions, observing all warnings and cautions.

WARNING Use only Masimo accessories and sensors with the monitor with Masimo SpO2 option as listed in Welch Allyn Products and Accessories (810-0409-XX).

2.Inspect the Masimo SpO2 cable. Replace it if it shows any signs of wear, breakage, or fraying. Plug the sensor into the cable and plug the cable into the Propaq monitor.

The monitor displays STANDBY in the SpO2 numeric window until it measures and displays the SpO2 value.

As oxygen saturation increases and decreases, the pitch of the heart tone rises and falls.

The monitor self-calibrates the SpO2 channel whenever the monitor is first turned on or a sensor is first connected to the SpO2 channel.

5.Adjust the placement of the sensor until a good SpO2 waveform is displayed. A waveform with artifact may cause erroneous oxygen saturation readings.

6.Set alarm limits according to your hospital’s standards.

Note To help minimize false alarms, the Propaq monitor briefly delays or "holds off" triggering both audible and visual alarms for limit violations for SpO2% and Pulse Rate for 10 seconds. After the alarm hold-off period begins, if the monitor detects that the patient’s vital sign has returned to acceptable limits, the monitor cancels the alarm hold-off. The next time a vital sign limit is violated, the monitor starts a new hold-off period.

The “averaging time” for SpO2 measurements is fixed at eight seconds.

7.If patient movement interferes with measurements, consider the following possible solutions:

Be sure the sensor is secure and properly applied.

Use a new sensor with fresh adhesive backing.

Select a different type of sensor.

Move the sensor to a less active site.

Perform SpO2 monitoring with Nellcor option

1.Attach the sensor to the patient according to the sensor manufacturer's instructions, observing all warnings and cautions.

WARNING Use only Nellcor accessories and sensors with the monitor with Nellcor SpO2 option, as listed in Welch Allyn Products and Accessories (810-0409-XX).

2.When using a Nellcor SpO2 sensor extension cable, inspect the cable before use. Replace it if it shows any signs of wear, breakage, or fraying. Plug the sensor into the cable and plug the cable into the Propaq monitor, or plug the sensor directly into the monitor.

3.If the monitor SpO2 receptacle has a locking ring, lock the connector in place by turning the locking ring clockwise until it stops. For other connectors, make sure the plug is all the way in.

Caution If you see the error message DEFECTIVE SpO2 SENSOR, either the sensor is not compatible with the monitor or the sensor is not working properly. Check the Welch Allyn Products and Accessories (810-0409-XX) to be sure the sensor is compatible. If compatibility is not a problem, try another sensor.

Note The monitor displays STANDBY in the SpO2 numeric window until it measures and displays the SpO2 value. As oxygen saturation increases and decreases, the pitch of the heart tone rises and falls.

The Nellcor SpO2 option periodically performs an internal adjustment which causes the SpO2 waveform to appear flat for a brief period.

9.If the C-LOCK function is desired, press C-LOCK to set it to ON.

C-LOCK synchronizes the pulse oximeter's systole determination to the R-wave to

reduce the effects artifact may have on SpO2 measurements. Under some conditions you may find more stable SpO2 readings with C-LOCK set to ON. SYNC appears next to the waveform when synchronization to the ECG has been obtained.

Synchronization takes a few seconds to establish the first time. If C-LOCK is on and

the HR source is SpO2, the heart rate source is automatically changed to ECG. An ECG signal must be present or C-LOCK does not activate.

If you get false SpO2 alarms with patients with low perfusion states or multiple arrhythmias, try turning off C-LOCK.

Perform SpO2 “spot-check” monitoring

The SpO2 Standby Mode allows you to remove the SpO2 sensor from a patient without having to disable all alarms or disconnect the SpO2 sensor cable from the Propaq CS monitor. You can therefore perform intermittent or “spot-check” SpO2 monitoring.

1.While monitoring SpO2, remove the SpO2 sensor from the patient, but leave it connected to the monitor. When the monitor detects the lack of a pulsatile waveform, it sounds a patient alarm and displays this menu:

SILENCE STANDBY

2.Press STANDBY to place SpO2 into the Standby Mode.

The monitor suspends the SpO2 alarm tone indefinitely and displays STANDBY in place of SpO2 numerics. SpO2 remains in the Standby Mode until the SpO2 sensor is reapplied to a patient. Other vital sign monitoring is not restricted. By contrast, if you press SILENCE instead of STANDBY, the monitor temporarily silences all alarm

tones; however, the alarm tone resumes after 90 seconds if the SpO2 sensor is still disconnected from the patient—see “Silence an active alarm or alert tone for 90 seconds” on page 49.

3.To resume SpO2 monitoring, reapply the SpO2 sensor to a patient. The monitor exits the Standby Mode and resumes SpO2 monitoring.

Note The message STBY on the SpO2 trend display and trend printouts indicates the monitor was in the SpO2 Standby Mode.

Monitoring

Welch Allyn Propaq CS Vital Signs Monitor

Perform Mainstream CO2 monitoring

The capnography (CO2) option measures End-tidal CO2 (ETCO2), Inspired CO2 (INCO2), Breath Rate, and Apnea. Patients using mainstream CO2 must either be intubated or breathing through a tight-fitting face mask connected to a breathing system such as an anesthesia circle system. The mainstream CO2 option requires the SpO2 option.

WARNING Avoid exposing older mainstream CO2 sensors to non-patient sources of CO2 such as vehicle engine exhaust or smoke. Exposure to these CO2 sources can temporarily trap CO2 within the monitor or mainstream CO2 sensor housing, even when monitor power is off. This can temporarily cause an erroneous elevated CO2 measurement baseline until the trapped CO2 leaks out and the baseline returns to zero (which can require as long as 3-24 hours).

WARNING Do not attempt to verify operation of the CO2 sensor by blowing through it directly. Always blow through an attached airway adapter. Otherwise, a small amount of CO2 from your breath may enter the CO2 sensor housing and cause a small shift in the measured CO2 values. It may take 3 to 24 hours for the sensor to return to proper calibration.

WARNING Do not clean and/or reuse a single-patient-use airway adapter. When a single-patient-use airway adapter becomes occluded, replace it.

WARNING For best product performance and measurement accuracy, use only accessories supplied by Welch Allyn or recommended in the Welch Allyn Products and Accessories booklet. Use accessories according to your facility’s standards and the manufacturer’s recommendations. Always refer to the manufacturer’s Directions for Use for instructions about operation, cleaning, and replacement. Only sensors recommended by Welch Allyn provide calibrated waveforms and numerics.

Note The mainstream CO2 operating temperature range is 10° to 40° C. This is different than the range of 0° to 40° C for other Propaq CS monitor functions. CO2 monitoring outside the specified range can cause inaccurate CO2 measurements.

WARNING Before using an airway adapter, always look through the window lumen and inspect the adapter for inadvertently lodged obstructions and for window integrity.

WARNING If the sensor does not easily slide onto the adapter, do not attempt to force these components together. They fit together in only one way. Take care not to damage the glass window.

WARNING After attaching the sensor to the adapter, check for proper placement. Check the sensor and adapter periodically during monitoring to make sure they are properly connected and the adapter is not clogged by obstructions or debris.

WARNING When attaching the airway adapter, position the adapter so the sensor is on top to avoid fluid collection in the sensor airway slot. Any concentration of fluids here can cause inaccurate CO2 readings.

WARNING When connecting the adapter and sensor to the ventilator circuit, do not use the adapter and sensor as a wrench to twist the adapter into the ventilator circuit. Such action could damage the adapter and sensor.

WARNING Always check to make sure there are no leaks in the breathing circuit. Check all of the connections.

3.Plug in the CO2 sensor cable to the mainstream CO2 connector on the monitor left side panel.

WARNING When disconnecting the CO2 sensor from the tracheal or endotracheal tube, check the sensor to determine how hot it is. If it is too hot for patient comfort, do not allow it to come into contact with the patient.

4. See page 46 and set up the CO2 display and alarm limits.

Note When disconnecting the airway adapter from the ventilator circuit, always detach the CO2 sensor from the airway adapter before removing the airway adapter from the ventilator circuit.

Monitoring

Welch Allyn Propaq CS Vital Signs Monitor

Perform sidestream CO2 monitoring

The capnography (CO2) option measures End-tidal CO2 (ETCO2), Inspired CO2 (INCO2), Breath Rate, and Apnea. Patients using sidestream CO2 can either be intubated or nonintubated using a CO2 Sampling cannula or a combination CO2 Sampling/Oxygen Delivery nasal cannula. The sidestream CO2 option requires the SpO2 option.

WARNING Do not use sidestream CO2 if flammable anesthetic gases are in use.

WARNING If the sidestream CO2 option is connected to a ventilatory circuit, be sure to adjust appropriate ventilator or anesthesia system settings to compensate for the sampling flow volume (90 or 175 ml/min) that is aspirated from the ventilatory circuit by the sidestream CO2 option.

WARNING Avoid exposing a Propaq CS monitor with the sidestream CO2 option to non-patient sources of CO2 such as vehicle engine exhaust or smoke. When such exposure is possible, avoid opening the printer door. Exposure to these CO2 sources can temporarily trap CO2 within the monitor, even when monitor power is off. This can temporarily cause an erroneous elevated CO2 measurement baseline until the trapped CO2 leaks out and the baseline returns to zero (which can require as long as 24 hours).

WARNING For best product performance and measurement accuracy, use only accessories supplied by Welch Allyn or recommended in Welch Allyn Products and Accessories. Use accessories according to your facility’s standards and the manufacturer’s recommendations. Always refer to the manufacturer’s Directions for Use for instructions about operation, cleaning, and replacement.

Note The sidestream CO2 operating temperature range is 5° to 40°C. This is different than the range of 0° to 40°C for other Propaq CS monitor functions. CO2 monitoring outside the specified range can cause inaccurate CO2 measurements.

When monitoring a small child with a rapid respiratory rate, mainstream CO2 can provide a more accurate representation of the expired CO2 waveform than sidestream CO2.

Breath rates greater than 50 breaths per minute may reduce the reported ETCO2 values. Select the 175 ml/min flow rate to minimize errors at higher breath rates.

The 175 ml/min flow rate is recommended for intubated adult patients.

Alarm holdoffs

To help minimize false alarms, the monitor briefly delays or “holds off” triggering alarms for limit violations for HR/PR, SpO2, and RR/BR. After the alarm holdoff period begins, if the monitor detects that the patient’s vital sign has returned to acceptable limits, the monitor cancels the alarm holdoff. The next time a vital sign limit is violated, the monitor starts a new holdoff period.

Connect nurse call option

The Propaq CS monitor can be connected to a Nurse Call system through a customized cable that connects to the left-side Nurse Call connector. When connected, the monitor immediately notifies the Nurse Call system whenever a patient alarm occurs.

Nurse Call connector

To connect the monitor to the Nurse Call system, you need a cable (008-0634-XX) that has been customized for your Nurse Call system. If you do not have this cable, contact your biomedical engineering department for assistance. For specifications, see “Nurse Call specifications” on page 106.

Note When an apnea alarm or patient alarm occurs, pressing the Silence/Reset Alarm key or SILENCE silences the alarm tone and Nurse Call alarm for 90 seconds. However, the visual indicators on the monitor are not suspended during this time.

Even though the Nurse Call option allows remote alarm indication, it does not replace appropriate bedside surveillance by trained clinicians.

Alarms & Alerts

Welch Allyn Propaq CS Vital Signs Monitor

Troubleshooting equipment alert messages

Simultaneous equipment alerts

MULTIPLE. If multiple equipment alerts occur simultaneously, the Propaq monitor displays this message. In this situation, the source of the alert may not be displayed (resulting in the message MULTIPLE). Look for blank numeric or waveform areas on the display, or status messages at the top of the display to identify the source(s) of multiple alerts.

Note The monitor can also display MULTIPLE LEAD FAIL if, for example, there is a problem with an ECG lead and RESP lead at the same time. In this case, the monitor will alternately display ECG FAULT and RESP FAULT. Check all ECG and RESP leads for proper connection and operation.

ECG messages

ECG FAULT. (This message is displayed in the status message area at the top of the display.) A problem occurred with ECG. If the problem is caused by a defective or disconnected lead, the monitor typically displays an additional message that indicates which lead failed (such as LL LEAD FAILED). Check the ECG lead for proper connection and operation.

ECG LEAD CHANGED. The Propaq CS monitor has automatically changed an ECG lead due to a lead wire or electrode problem.

LEAD FAIL: REPLACE ELECTRODES. The cable may not be properly connected to the electrodes or the electrodes may have failed. Check for proper connection; replace electrodes if needed.

MULTIPLE LEAD FAIL. The monitor displays this message if multiple ECG leads fail. Check all ECG leads for proper connection and operation.

RESP messages

RESP FAULT. (This message is displayed in the status message area at the top of the display.) A problem occurred with RESP. The monitor typically displays an additional message indicating the cause of the problem, such as a problem with a RESP lead. Check for proper connection; replace electrodes if needed.

LEAD FAIL. One or more electrodes are making very poor or no contact. Check for proper connection; replace electrodes if needed.

INAPPROPRIATE ECG CABLE. ECG cable appears not to contain 1 kW current limiting resistors. These resistors are required for RESP operation and to protect the monitor from damage during defibrillation. Replace cable with proper type.

NOISY SIGNAL, CHECK ELECTRODES. Electrodes are making poor contact and may be dried out. Replace electrodes.

Directions for Use

IBP messages

TRANSDUCER NOT DETECTED. The transducer connection is broken.

TRANSDUCER SHORT CIRCUIT. This message appears when the Propaq CS monitor senses a short in the transducer. The transducer should be replaced.

INCOMPATIBLE TRANSDUCER. Check the compatible transducers listed in the Welch Allyn Products and Accessories booklet to confirm you are using a compatible transducer.

NIBP messages

If an error number (ERR# x) is listed in an NIBP trend printout or display, it indicates that the corresponding NIBP equipment alert occurred.

AIR LEAK, CHECK HOSE (ERR# 1). The Propaq CS monitor could not properly inflate cuff. Check the hose and cuff for obvious leaks, such as the O-rings in the hose connections.

CUFF NOT DETECTED (ERR# 2). During cuff inflation the detected pressure did not sufficiently rise. Check that the cuff connection is tight and take the measurement again.

KINKED HOSE, CHECK HOSE (ERR# 3). The Propaq CS monitor could not properly inflate cuff. Check for a kinked hose between the monitor and the patient.

OVERPRESSURE CONDITION (ERR# 4). The pressure in the cuff exceeded the acceptable limits for patient mode. Check the hose and try taking another measurement.

WEAK PULSES, CAN'T FIND SYS/DIA (ERR# 5). There are not enough pulses to determine the systolic or diastolic pressures, but a mean pressure is available. Try reapplying the cuff after squeezing as much air from it as you can.

ARTIFACT, CAN’T FIND SYS/DIA (ERR# 6). The systolic or diastolic pressures are unreliable due to artifact, but a mean pressure is available. May be caused by patient motion.

NO PULSES DETECTED (ERR# 7). The cuff may not be properly applied to the patient, or the patient may not have detectable pulses due to shock or arrhythmias.

WARNING The Propaq CS monitor cannot differentiate between physiologic and cuff application causes of the NO PULSES DETECTED message. Always evaluate the patient for presence of life threatening conditions whenever this message occurs.

CONNECT ECG TO REDUCE NIBP ARTIFACT (ERR# 8). NIBP artifact prevents a valid reading. Connect ECG electrodes to improve NIBP measurements.

NO VALID BLOOD PRESSURE FOUND (ERR# 9). This message can occur due to motion artifact, the Propaq CS monitor being set in the wrong patient mode, or the wrong hose or cuff being used in relation to the patient mode.

CALIBRATING, PLEASE WAIT (ERR# 10). The Propaq CS monitor periodically recalibrates the NIBP channel to ensure it can properly make NIBP determinations. Normal monitor operation continues while the NIBP channel is calibrating. If the NIBP

58

Alarms & Alerts

channel has not updated its calibration in 15 minutes, the channel will briefly deactivate until a new calibration has occurred.

LOW BATTERY, NIBP DISABLED (ERR# 11). The battery lacks sufficient voltage to be able to operate the NIBP channel. Connect the Propaq CS monitor to the ac power adapter.

SERVICE REQUIRED, NIBP DISABLED (ERR# 12). Have the monitor serviced.

CUFF TOO LARGE FOR PATIENT MODE (ERR# 13). The monitor detects a cuff too large for the current patient mode. First, verify the patient mode. If the patient mode is correct, confirm the cuff size is correct and make sure the cuff fits snugly. If this alert occurs in Neonatal Mode, change the patient mode to Pediatric Mode and check the alarm limits. If the alert occurs in Pediatric Mode, change to Adult Mode and check the alarm limits. Note that different pressures and retries are used for each mode as stated in “NIBP specifications” on page 99.

KINKED OR NEONATE HOSE (ERR# 14). This message occurs when a hose is kinked or when a neonate hose is detected in the adult patient mode. Check the hose or the patient mode selection.

ARTIFACT PRESENT, MINIMIZE ARTIFACT (ERR# 15). The monitor has detected too much artifact to allow accurate readings. Take steps to reduce artifact. Position the patient’s limb away from the body so the applied cuff is not in contact with the patient’s body or any other object such as a bed rail. If the Smartcuf motion artifact filter is on, make sure that the ECG leads are properly connected to perform ECG monitoring during NIBP. If the Smartcuf motion artifact filter is off, consider turning it on (and connect ECG if not already connected).

The following messages can appear in the NIBP status window.

CALIBRATING. The NIBP channel is running an internal calibration.

DISABLED, LOW BATT. See LOW BATTERY, NIBP DISABLED above.

NIBP DISABLED, SERVICE REQUIRED. See SERVICE REQUIRED, NIBP DISABLED above.

RETRY. Since the Propaq CS monitor did not receive a valid NIBP reading, it will automatically attempt to take another reading.

The following NIBP status message looks similar to an equipment alert, although it does not indicate a malfunction and does not cause an alert tone.

NIBP IN PROGRESS, PLEASE WAIT, FILTERING ARTIFACT. Noise or artifact such as vehicle motion is causing a delay while measuring NIBP. To remove the message, press any key below the screen. To cancel the NIBP measurement, press the Start/ Stop NIBP key at the right of the screen.

The following message can be displayed if the monitor detects a system error.

REMOVE CUFF FROM PATIENT

PLEASE NOTIFY YOUR LOCAL SERVICE

REPRESENTATIVE OR WELCH ALLYN PROTOCOL, INC.

This type of message indicates that the monitor detected an internal system problem which may require service for the monitor. If the monitor displays this message, disconnect the monitor from the patient. Write down the error number for the service department, and send the monitor to your facility’s biomedical engineering department.

Note The message REMOVE CUFF FROM PATIENT as shown above does not imply that the detected error is related to NIBP. It is simply a reminder to disconnect the NIBP cuff from the patient if a cuff is connected.

Understanding the Propaq CS, Acuity, and FlexNet network

This section describes the operation of the Propaq CS monitor (software version 3.5X) with the Acuity FlexNet network. It describes both the Acuity hardwired and wireless communication options for the Propaq CS monitor.

WARNING When connecting the Acuity hardwire connection, connect the Propaq CS monitor to an Acuity system only. Connecting to other networks could damage the monitor or injure the patient. If in doubt about the network jacks or devices, consult your facility’s Biomedical Engineering Department.

WARNING Make sure the Acuity network cable is not damaged. If the wireless connection is not an option or not available, the Acuity network cable is the sole link between the Propaq CS monitor and the Acuity Central Station.

WARNING When considering a treatment protocol that involves wireless communication of patient data, be sure to recognize some limitations inherent in wireless communications. When the Propaq CS monitor is not connected to the network by wireless (or hardwired) connection:

There are no patient alarms or alerts at the Acuity Central Station.

Acuity does not perform arrhythmia and ST analysis on the patient data and does not generate related alarms.

If wireless communication is no longer available or is not functioning properly, consider using the hardwire connection to Acuity.

WARNING If you don’t set alarm limits, the Acuity system uses preset settings (for arrhythmia test limits), and the powerup default settings for the Propaq CS monitor.

WARNING The radio in this monitor has been authorized by the FCC for mobile use only. Mobile use as defined by the FCC is for operation 20 cm or more away from a person’s head or torso. The distance does not apply to transient exposure due to incidental passage closer than the maximum permissible exposure (MPE) limit.

WARNING When the monitor moves out of range of the Acuity network, communication with Acuity is broken immediately, stopping the communication of patient vital-signs data. If the monitor is out of range of the Acuity network for several minutes, the radio enters a low-power state. When the monitor is again within range of the Acuity network, it can take as long as three minutes to restore communication with Acuity and resume the communication of patient vital-signs data.

72

Acuity

Welch Allyn Propaq CS Vital Signs Monitor

WARNING Accessory equipment connected to the analog and digital interfaces must be certified according to the respective IEC standards (e.g., EN 60950 for data processing equipment and EN 60601-1 for medical equipment). Furthermore, all configurations shall comply with the system standard IEC 601-1-1. Anyone connecting additional equipment to the signal input or output connectors is configuring a medical system, and is therefore responsible that the system complies with the requirements of the system standard IEC 601-1-1. If in doubt, consult your Biomedical Engineering Department.

Note WHEN USED IN CANADA: To prevent radio interference to the licensed service, this device is intended to be operated indoors and away from windows to provide maximum shielding. Equipment (or its transmit antenna) that is installed outdoors is subject to licensing.

Pour empêcher que cet appareil cause du brouillage au service faisant l’objet d’une licence, il doit être utilisé à l’intérieur et devrait être placé loin des fenêtres afin de fournir un écran de blindage maximal. Si le matériel (ou son antenne d’émission) est installé à l’extérieur, il doit faire l’objet d’une licence.

The Propaq CS monitor can communicate with an Acuity Central Station as part of Welch Allyn’s FlexNet network. FlexNet allows multiple devices to communicate through hardwired Ethernet networks and Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs). The Acuity Central Station provides central patient monitoring for monitoring devices connected to the network.

As shown below, the Propaq CS can communicate through a hardwire Acuity connection. In addition, the Propaq CS can also be equipped with the Wireless option which allows two-way wireless communication with an Acuity Central Station through an access point in the FlexNet network. The access point is a digital radio transceiver that connects to the FlexNet network.

FlexNet network

While connected to the network, the Propaq CS sends patient data to Acuity. Acuity continuously analyzes the data and provides appropriate alarm or alert messages at the Central Station and other network devices such as a hallway message panel or the Propaq CS itself. Acuity also stores the patient data for viewing or report printing.

Directions for Use

Acuity

73

If the Wireless Propaq CS is moved out of range or loses communication with the FlexNet network and Acuity, it continues to monitor the patient and display patient data. While not communicating with Acuity, the Propaq CS continues to generate local patient alarms or alert messages. Acuity does not perform waveform analysis or generate arrhythmia or ST analysis messages while the Propaq CS is not communicating with Acuity. When the Wireless Propaq CS is returned to within range of the FlexNet network, it automatically reconnects to Acuity and uploads trend information.

A Propaq CS with the Acuity hardwire communication option can be identified by the Acuity connector on the right side panel.

A Wireless Propaq CS can be identified by the yellow antenna cap on the top right corner of the monitor in front of the carrying handle. Every Wireless Propaq CS includes the Acuity hardwire communication option.

If a Wireless Propaq CS monitor is communicating with the network via the wireless interface and then the Acuity hardwire cable is used to connect the bedside Acuity network jack and the monitor, the monitor disconnects from the wireless connection and communicates through the hardwire connection. There may be a short interruption in the display of patient waveforms at Acuity while this change occurs.

Note The Wireless Propaq CS can not be used with the Modem-Propaq communication option, even when the Wireless Propaq CS is being used with a hardwire connection or is out-of-range of a FlexNet Network access point.

7 Maintenance

Avoid electrostatic discharge

When humidity in the working environment decreases, the human body and other insulators can become charged with static electricity due to friction.

To prevent unwanted electrostatic discharge (ESD), follow these standard guidelines:

Maintain the recommended humidity of 40% to 60% in the work environment.

Dissipate electrostatic charge before performing routine operator maintenance.

Connect the AC power adapter to recharge the battery

WARNING Use only the Welch Allyn ac power adapter and power cord appropriate for your location and ac power source as listed in Welch Allyn Products and Accessories. Use of other power adapters or power cords could cause a current leakage hazard or damage the Propaq CS monitor.

WARNING Place the power adapter where it cannot fall and harm someone.

Caution Leaving the monitor's lead-acid batteries in a completely discharged state may result in permanent battery damage. The batteries should be kept fully charged.

When the Propaq CS monitor battery voltage is low, the monitor displays the message LOW BATTERY at the top of the screen or the equipment alert message VERY LOW BATTERY, PLUG IN EXTERNAL POWER ADAPTER. You should connect an ac power adapter as soon as possible to recharge the battery.

If the battery is not recharged, the monitor will begin to disable monitor functions and eventually turn off completely.

1.Before connecting the ac power adapter, check the adapter power setting in the small window next to the power cord connector. Make sure the setting matches your ac power source (either 100V-120V or 200V-240V).

Adapter

Spare Fuse

2.Using a small, flat-blade screwdriver, carefully pry the fuse module away from the adapter.

3.Remove and replace both fuses with the correct type specified on the adapter. The fuse module can contain spare fuses.

Caution Spare fuses are contained in housings next to the fuses in the fuse module as shown in the illustration. Between the fuses is a small printed-circuit board (PCB) that sets the power adapter to the desired ac mains voltage. When handling the fuse module, the PCB may slide out.

Caution Make sure the voltage selector indicates the proper ac input voltage. If you change the adapter voltage setting, you must replace all fuses to match the appropriate type specified on the bottom of the power adapter. The only fuses contained in the power adapter when shipped from the factory are fuses specified for the original adapter input voltage setting.

Caution Replace each fuse only with the specified type (“Power Adapter

Specifications” on page 113).

Note Replace both fuses at the same time, even if only one fuse has opened due to an overcurrent situation. The unopened fuse may be damaged and unreliable.

If the small PCB between the fuses has slipped out of place, slide it back into place in the fuse module, and verify that the voltage setting indicated in the window on the fuse module is correct. If the voltage setting is incorrect, simply slide the PCB out of the fuse module, rotate it 180° and slide it back into place.

Specification

QRS Detector

Adult or Pediatric Amplitude Range: 0.22 to 5.0 mV (RTI)

 

Neonatal Amplitude Range: 0.1 to 5.0 mV (RTI)

 

Neonatal and Pediatric Width Range (Duration):

 

40 to 120 ms

 

Adult Width Range (Duration): 70 to 120 ms

Heart Rate Range

25 to 350 beats per minute (measurement)

 

25 to 300 beats per minute (display)

HR/PR Alarm Limits Range

25 to 250 beats per minute

Heart Rate Meter Response

Responds to change in heart rate within 5 to 9 seconds depending on physiological

Time

waveform. (As measured per AAMI standard EC 13-1992 clause 4.1.2.1 (f), including

 

3.1.2.1 parts f. and g. waveforms.) Includes 1 second readout update interval.

HR Accuracy

±3 beats per minute or 3%, whichever is greater

 

NOTE: AAMI Test 4.1.4 part f: Accuracy is affected (i.e., rate drops) when QRS and

 

pacer spikes are nearly simultaneous as occasionally is the case during this AAMI

 

test.

Heart Rate Averaging Method

Heart rate = 60 / latest average interval in seconds.

 

For higher heart rates, latest average interval = 7/8 of previous average interval + 1/8

 

of latest interval.

 

For lower heart rates, latest average interval = 3/4 (previous average interval) + 1/4

 

latest interval.

 

Transition rates for choice of formula include hysteresis and are 70 and 80 beats per

 

minute.

Drift Tolerance (AAMI

80 beats per minute indicated for 80 beats per minute ECG plus drift waveform

Specification EC13-1992,

 

3.2.6.3)

 

Pacer Display

Pacer indicator shown on screen if PACER function turned on; pacer spike always

 

shown if of sufficient amplitude.

Pacer Pulse Rejection

Pacer detection range (i.e., will show the dashed vertical marker) for 0.1 ms pulses is

 

±3 mV to ±700 mV, and drops linearly to ±2 mV to ±700 mV for 0.2 to 2 ms pulses.

Will not count as heartbeats approximately 95% of pacemaker pulses within pacer detection range, with or without AAMI (EC13 1992) tails of 4, 25, 50, 75, or 100 ms decay time constant, whose tail amplitudes are 2.5% or 25%, 2mV maximum, whether ventricular only, or A-V sequential pulses, all per AAMI tests 3.1.4.1 and 3.1.4.2

Bidirectional Systole

88 to 93 bpm (90 bpm expected)

1mV Ventricular Tachycardia

197 to 198 bpm (206 bpm expected)

2mV Ventricular Tachycardia

193 to 197 bpm (206 bpm expected)
