Avant® 2120 Troubleshooting
- The device will not activate.
- Plug in the device to recharge its battery, or replace the battery
- You are unable to obtain a green pulse display on the bar graph.
- Reposition the sensor or apply the sensor to a different finger, and keep the sensor motionless. b)Warm the sensor application site.
- c) Allow the hand to rest comfortably without squeezing or pressing the sensor on a hard surface. d)Shield the sensor from any light source.
- e) Reduce or eliminate any possible interference from one of the following sources:
- arterial catheter
- blood pressure cuff
- electrosurgical procedure
- infusion line
- The Pulse Oximeter Sensor LED appears.
- Reposition the sensor or apply the sensor to a different finger, and keep the sensor motionless. b) Warm the sensor application site.
- An error code appears in the display area.
- Turn the unit off and back on again to remove error code.
- If the error persists, disconnect battery & AC, and then reconnect the power and turn unit on.
- The device encountered an error. See “Error Codes Table” in your manual.
- The NIBP cuff overinflates and detaches from either the device or the hose; blood pressure readings are not displayed.
- Ensure that the cuff is applied and positioned correctly. See “NIBP Cuff Selection” and “NIBP Cuff Placement” in your manual for more information.
- Ensure that the appropriate cuff size is selected.
- The device is in Alarm mode, but no audible alarms can be heard.
- Press the Alarm Silence button to activate alarm volume, or wait for two minutes, the alarm tones will automatically activate.
- Adjust the alarm volume, or return option switch 2 to the DOWN position if audible alarms are required.
- The device will only operate when it is plugged in.
- Plug in the AC Power Supply to charge the battery.
- Check that the battery pack is properly connected to device.
Calibration should be performed after every 10,000 inflations or once per year, using the following procedure. Calibration should only be performed by qualified personnel.
- Mercury Manometer
- Pneumatic T-Adapter
- Pressure Bulb
With the device turned off, connect a mercury manometer and pressure bulb to the device using a T-adapter.
- using the tip of a screwdriver or other similar device, place DIP switch ‘n the UP position.
- Turn on the device A CAL message displayed in the Systolic display window, verifying that the device is In Calibration mode.
- Watt for a green to appear in the Diastolic LED display.
- Verify that the pressure on the manometer is zero, so there is no pressure difference at the pressure transducer and outside the device.
- Press the NIBP button. A countdown Will begin. fOllowed by “250” in the Diastolic display.
- Using the pressure bulb, apply exactly 250 mmHg to the device.
- Press the NIBP button to calibrate the device at 250 mmHg. The device is now calibrated and Will displaya ca I cine message.
- Press the OWSTANDBY button to turn the device off. Return DIP switch 1 to the DOWN position.
NOTE: The pulse oximeter does not require calibration_
|CAN||NIBP Module, User Cancelled – The NIBP module was cancelled from taking a blood pressure reading.|
|E00||System Error – Retry reading. If reading is not possible, then cycle power and retry. Calibration may be required.|
|E01||NIBP Module, Bad Signals – The NIBP module was unable to complete a reading. The failure could be due to a patient’s blood pressure falling outside the module’s range. Check the patient, the air hose connection, and application of the cuff.|
|NIBP Module, Overpressure – Overpressure condition occurred.|
|E03||NIBP Module, Air Leak – Check hose and cuff for damage or air leaks.|
|E04||NIBP Module, Blockage in Line – Check hose for kinks or blockage. Also, check NIBP module for any obstructing materials.|
|E05||NIBP Module, Safety Timer Timeout – The allowed time expired before the reading was complete or the system remained in test mode longer than three minutes. .|
|E06||NIBP Module, Gross Movement. – Check patient and reduce motion.|
|NIBP Module, Transducer out of range – The zero calibration has drifted beyond the range of the automatic zero circuit. The module pressure transducer may need re-calibration.|
