  • Causa
    The pdm patient parameter acquisition module can sometimes spontaneously lose the communication with the host patient monitor when attached to the f5-01 frame due to an issue with the pdm ethernet communication hardware. the communication loss may occur when the pdm is first attached to the host monitor, or it may lose communication spontaneously during use with no user action. communication is not automatically re-established. loss of communication with the host monitor results in a loss of monitoring for the parameters provided by the pdm module, however an audible and visual alarm will be displayed.
