-Do not attempt to service the pulse oximeter. Only qualified service personnel should attempt and needed internal servicing.
-Prolonged use or the patient's condition may require changing the sensor site periodically. Change sensor site and correct alignment at least every 2 hours.

-The following reasons will cause interference:
√ High-frequency electrosurgical
√ Placement of a sensor on an extremity with a blood pressure cuff arterial catheter, or intravascular line.
