HTMC PM Procedure No. DEF–01 rev 2 .……........…………….DEFIBRILLATOR/ MONITOR

(This document was last revised on 7-14-18)

Scope: This procedure is to be used for .... Time required: 0.X man-hrs.

Test equipment and supplies required: ......

Special precautions: If there is evidence of blood or body fluid contamination make sure the device is cleaned and decontaminated before attempting to work on it.
______________________________________________________________________________________________________
If any part(s) required reconditioning or replacement, or any adjustments or minor repairs were required to bring the device into conformance with its performance and safety specifications, check the box on the left of the relevant statement number, and record what was done, or what was found in the Note box at the foot of the page. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________

[ ] R1. Verify that the device is functional. If it is not, check the box at the left and open a repair work order.__

Visual Inspection (VI) tasks) – predictive maintenance to detect any indications that components are beginning to fail.

[ ] VI1. With power off inspect the entire system for signs of damage, especially any moving parts, including any user-accessible areas that are under covers. Clean as needed. Adjust or replace any loose or damaged parts. Lubricate (if applicable) as required. Rate your finding for this task using the PHYSICAL CONDITION Finding scale described below and enter your rating for this task (1, 5 or 9), here: __

[ ] VI2. Confirm that all markings and labeling are legible. Clean or replace, as required. Enter task rating (1, 5 or 9) here __

[ ] VI3. Check that the physical condition of the power cord and cap, including the strain relief, is OK. Check the auxiliary receptacles (if applicable). Check the circuit breaker/ fuse. Enter task rating (1, 5 or 9) here __

[ ] VI4. Inspect all cables, electrodes and transducers, to confirm integrity and proper function. Enter task rating (1, 5 or 9) here __ (Serious failure [task rating = 9] is potentially life-threatening)

[ ] VI5. Review the on-board error log/ event history for any unusual indications. Enter task rating (1, 5 or 9) here __

Device Restoration (DR) tasks – reconditioning or replacement of the device’s non-durable parts. (For specific "how to" instructions, refer to the manufacturer's PM procedure)

[ ] DR1. Check the battery, or replace it if so scheduled. Enter your rating for this task here: __ (If battery replaced per schedule, enter 1; if not scheduled and battery found to be OK enter 5; if not OK enter 9)

  • If battery replacement was not scheduled and it was no longer holding a charge [task rating = 9] this could have resulted in a high severity, life-threatening outcome

[ ] DR2. Recondition or replace any specific non-durable parts identified in the manufacturer's PM procedure. Enter task rating (1, 5 or 9) here: __ (Serious failure [task rating = 9] is potentially life-threatening)

Safety Verification (SV) tasks) – to detect and correct any hidden performance/ safety degradations. (For specific "how to" instructions, refer to the manufacturer's PM procedure)

[ ] SV1. If there is exposed metal that could conceivably become energized, check the continuity to ground. (< 0.5 ohm). Enter task rating (A, B or F) here __ (Serious failure [task rating = F] is potentially life-threatening)

[ ] SV2. Verify that the battery charging system is operating within specifications. Enter task rating (A, B or F) here __

[ ] SV3. Verify that the time/ date indication (if applicable) is correct. Enter task rating (A, B or F) here __

[ ] SV4. Verify the functional performance of all controls, switches, latches, clamps, soft touch keys, etc. Enter task rating (A, B or F) here __ (Serious failure [task rating = F] is potentially life-threatening)

[ ] SV5. Verify proper performance of all indicators and displays, in all modes. Enter task rating (A, B or F) here __ (Serious failure [task rating = F] is potentially life-threatening)

[ ] SV6. Verify proper operation of any ECG or heart rate feature. Enter task rating (A, B or F) here __ (Serious failure [task rating = F] is potentially life-threatening)

[ ] SV7. Use a defibrillator analyzer to verify that the selected energy versus delivered energy is within the specified acceptable levels. Enter task rating (A, B or F) here __ (Serious failure [task rating = F] is potentially life-threatening)

FINDINGS-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PERFORMANCE/ SAFETY = A, B, or F (circle one) / Where A= nominal; B= minor OOS condition(s) was found; F= serious OOS condition(s) was found
Write in Task Number(s) where out-of-spec (OOS) B or F conditions were found and provide details in the Note field below.____________

PHYSICAL CONDITION = 1, 5, 9, or 0 (circle one) / Where 1 = better than expected; 5 = nominal; 9 = serious physical deterioration, and 0 = device has no parts needing physical restoration.
Write in Task Number(s) where out-of-spec (OOS) "9" conditions were found and provide details in the Note field below.____________

Note . __________________________________________________________________________________________________

When done make sure controls are set at normal positions and place a CAUTION tag in a prominent position asking the next user to verify control settings, set up and function before use.

If the device passed (grade A1, A5, B1 or B5), attach a new PM sticker indicating the next PM due date.

This is considered to be a potentially PM Priority 1 device and if it DID NOT PASS it should be removed from service immediately.

[ ] Check here if all DR Tasks were coded 1 (This is an indicator that the PM interval may be TOO SHORT)
[ ] Check here if any DR Tasks were coded 9 (This is an indicator that the PM interval may be TOO LONG)
[ ] Check here if any ST Tasks were coded B (This is an indicator that these tasks should be considered for a future WATCH LIST)

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________
Disclaimer: This PM procedure may not reference all of the maintenance tasks specified by the manufacturer's technical or user manual. In many instances the manufacturer suggests a number of user-level tasks, such as cleaning or replacing consumables, which need to be completed. These are considered to be outside the scope of this technician-level procedure.
