Transducer Set Up

  1. Slide the transducer into the mounting bracket.
  2. Connect the cable extension of the Transpac IV transducer to the reusable cable. Connect the other end of the reusable cable to the patient monitor.   
  3. Ensure that all luer connections are tightened.
  4. Connect the administration set to the fluid source. Gravity prime recommended.
  5. Activate the flush device by pulling the INTRAFLO pigtail or by compressing the tags of the Squeeze flush device. Flush until fluid exits the side port of the zeroing stopcock.   
  6. Turn the zeroing stopcock handle "off" to the zeroing port. Cover with a yellow non-vented cap.
  7. Activate the flush device to flush the remaining patient line. If additional stopcocks are in line, ensure that fluid exits each side port.
  8. Verify that all stopcock handles are turned "off" to the side ports and that side ports are covered by yellow non-vented caps. Pressurize the IV fluid source to 300 mm Hg. Close the pressure cuff clamp.

Leveling and Zeroing the Transducer

  1. Position the pole mount so that the zeroing port is level with the patient's phlebostatic axis.
  2. Turn the handle of the zeroing stopcock "off" to the patient. Remove the yellow non-vented cap from the zeroing port. Zero balance and calibrate per the monitor manufacturer's instructions. When completed, turn the zeroing stopcock handle "off" to the zeroing port. Cover the zeroing port with a yellow non-vented cap. 
  3. Connect the fluid filled patient line to the patient catheter.
