SAFETY PRECAUTIONS

Read the following safety precautions and warnings carefully before you use the system in surgery. Do not use extension cords with your system. Do not overload your electrical receptacle (outlet). If there is damage to the cord or the plug, do not use the instrument. A damaged cable can cause an electric shock to the user or a fire hazard to the system. Call AMO customer service to order a new cord. The instrument has ventilation openings at the rear of the console to allow ambient air intake and the release of heat generated during operation. Do not block the openings; as heat build-up can cause system failures, which can result in a fire hazard. Do not try to move the system cart on deep pile carpets or over objects on the floor such as cables and power cords. Take care not to trip over power and foot pedal cords. Do not try to lift the system console. Do not place the instrument on uneven or sloped surfaces. Only use disposables, accessories, or other surgical instruments designed for this system. For optimum performance of the system and safety, use only parts recommended by AMO. Do not operate the system in a condensing environment. Take care to protect the instrument from fluid sprays or fluid buildup. To protect the patient from contaminated fluids or handpieces, use only sterile tubing packs, sterile irrigation fluid, and sterile handpieces. Wrap the excess power cord neatly around the cord wrap on the back of the console. Use caution when you use handpieces with sharp edges or pointed tips. Always replace the tubing pack and the balanced salt solution bottle between cases.

CAUTIONS

Never attempt to straighten a bent needle. This might produce a broken tip when you apply ultrasound. Do not activate the phaco handpiece and vitrectomy cutter with the tip in the air. Exposure of the tip to air drastically reduces the useful life of the handpiece. If you introduce power to the phaco handpiece or vitrectomy cutter, the tip must be in a test chamber filled with balanced salt solution, in a container of balanced salt solution, or in the patient’s eye. If you do not hear a tone when you press the foot pedal and volume adjustment is unsuccessful, the mode is not functioning properly.

Do not try to roll the system cart on carpets or over objects on the floor such as cables and power cords. Take care not to trip over the power cords and the foot pedal cords. Do not place the instrument on uneven or sloped surfaces. Only use disposables, accessories, or other surgical instruments designed for this system. Use only parts recommended by AMO to achieve the optimum performance and the safety of the system. Do not operate the system in a condensing environment. Take care to protect the instrument from fluid sprays or fluid buildup. Do not exceed maximum weight of 25 pounds (11.25 Kg) on the Programmable IV Pole bottle holder. Do not use more than one IV pole extender with the IV pole. If there is no IV pole attached to the system, hang the irrigation fluid container at least 77 cm from the patient’s eye. To protect the patient from contaminated fluids or handpieces, use only: sterile tubing sets, sterile irrigation fluid, sterile handpieces. Use caution when handling handpiece with sharp edges or pointed tips. Wrap the excess power cord neatly around the cord wrap on the back of the IV pole or cart. Always replace the Single-Use Pack and irrigation solution bottle between surgical cases. Phaco and Vitrectomy Operation: Do not activate the Phaco and Vitrectomy handpieces with the tips in air as this reduces the useful life of the handpiece and the cutter. When introducing power to the Phaco or Vitrectomy handpieces, the tips should be in one of the following: a test chamber filled with irrigating solution, a container of irrigating solution, or the patient’s eye. Failure to properly attach the tubing to the appropriate vacuum source or pressure source affects the vitrectomy handpiece operation. Be sure to read the handpiece package insert for correct assembly procedures and connection procedures. Diathermy: When you select the Diathermy mode, you hear a tone or a voice. Also, you hear an audible tone when you apply diathermy power. You must check the diathermy cable periodically for damage. If the cable shows signs of damage, replace the cable immediately with the same type of cable. Use of other types of cables can affect the diathermy performance. During surgery, the diathermy output power should be as low as possible for the intended purpose. AMO recommends 30% setting to start. The patient should not come into contact with ungrounded metal parts when using diathermy. Position the diathermy cable in such a way that the cable avoids contact with the patient or other leads. For proper operation of the diathermy, replace the handpiece with the same type. Power IV Pole: Do not exceed maximum weight of 25 pounds (11.25 Kg) on the IV pole bottle holder. Foot Pedal: Never handle the foot pedal by its power cord. Do not place the foot pedal on a wet surface.
