Section 1-3
Safety Considerations
1-3-1 Introduction
Ensure that the appropriate safety precautions are observed during all phases of operation, service or
repair of the Vivid 3 ultrasound unit. Failure to comply with these precautions or with specific warnings
elsewhere in this manual violates safety standards of design, manufacture and intended use of the
equipment.

1-3-2 Human Safety


Only personnel who have participated in a Vivid 3 ultrasound unit training seminar are authorized to
service the equipment.
Operating personnel must not remove the system covers.

1-3-3 Mechanical Safety

Danger: When the unit is raised for a repair or moved along any incline, use extreme caution as it may
become unstable and tip over.

Danger: Ultrasound probes are highly sensitive medical instruments that can easily be damaged by
improper handling. Use care when handling probes and protect them from damage when not in use. Do
not use a damaged or defective probe. Failure to follow these precautions can result in serious injury
and equipment damage.

Danger: Never use a probe that has been subjected to mechanical shock or impact. Even if the probe
looks unbroken, it may be damaged.

Warning: The Vivid 3 ultrasound unit weighs from 160 kg (353 lb) to 190 kg
(419 lb) or more, depending on installed peripherals. Care must be taken when moving the ultrasound
unit or replacing its parts. Failure to follow the precautions listed below could result in injury,
uncontrolled motion and costly damage. Always:
Be sure the pathway is clear.
Limit the speed of movement to that of a careful walk.
When moving the system on inclines, or when lifting more than 23 kg (55 lb), at least two people
should participate in the move.

Warning: Injury or equipment damage could result. Always lock the control console in its parking
(locked) position after moving the system.

Warning: Equipment damage could result.Special care should be taken when transporting the system
in a vehicle:
Secure the system in an upright position and lock the wheels (brake).
DO NOT use the control console as an anchor point.
Place the probes in their carrying case.
Eject any disks from the MOD (if installed).
Ensure that the system is well prepared and packed in its original packaging before transporting.
Special care must be taken to correctly position the packing material supporting the monitor. For
further information, refer to Chapter 3 of the Vivid 3 Pro/Vivid 3 Expert Service Manual.

Chapter 1 Introduction 1-7


GE MEDICAL SYSTEMS PROPRIETARY TO GE
DIRECTION 2328457INS, REVISION 1 VIVID 3 BT00 TO BT00 PRO-02 P509 UPGRADE PROCEDURE

1-3-4 Electrical Safety


To minimize shock hazard, the equipment chassis must be connected to an electrical ground. The
system is equipped with a three-conductor AC power cable. This must be plugged into an approved
electrical outlet with safety grounding.
The power outlet used for this equipment should not be shared with other types of equipment. Both the
system power cable and the power connector must meet international electrical standards.

1-3-4-1 Probes
All the probes for the Vivid 3 ultrasound unit are designed and manufactured to provide trouble-free,
reliable service. To ensure this, correct handling of probes is important and the following points should
be noted:
Do not drop a probe or strike it against a hard surface, as this may damage the transducer elements,
acoustic lens, or housing.
Do not use a cracked or damaged probe. In this event, call your field service representative
immediately to obtain a replacement.
Avoid pulling, pinching or kinking the probe cable, since a damaged cable may compromise the
electrical safety of the probe.
To avoid the risk of a probe accidentally falling, do not allow the probe cables to become entangled,
or to be caught in the machines wheels.

Note: For detailed information on handling endocavity probes, refer to the appropriate supplementary
instructions for each probe. In addition, refer to the Vivid 3 Pro/Vivid 3 Expert Users Manual for
detailed probe handling instructions.

Section 1-4
EMC, EMI, and ESD
1-4-1 Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC)
Electromagnetic compatibility describes a level of performance of a device within its electromagnetic
environment. This environment consists of the device itself and its surroundings, including other
equipment, power sources and persons with which the device must interface. Inadequate compatibility
results when a susceptible device fails to perform as intended due to interference from its environment,
or when the device produces unacceptable levels of emission. This interference is often referred to as
radiofrequency or electromagnetic interference (RFI/EMI) and can be radiated through space or
conducted over interconnecting power or signal cables. In addition to electromagnetic energy, EMC
also includes possible effects from electrical fields, magnetic fields, electrostatic discharge and
disturbances in the electrical power supply.

1-4-2 Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) Prevention

Caution: Do not touch any boards with integrated circuits prior to taking the necessary ESD
precautions, including:
Always connect yourself, via an arm-wrist strap, to the advised ESD connection point located on
the rear of the ultrasound unit (to the right of the power connector).
Follow all guidelines for handling electrostatic-sensitive equipment.

1-4-3 CE Compliance
The Vivid 3 ultrasound unit conforms to all applicable requirements in relevant EU Directives and
European/International standards, as described in Section1-4-4.
Any changes to accessories, peripheral machines or any part of the system must be approved by the
manufacturer, GE Ultrasound. Ignoring this advice may compromise the regulatory approvals obtained
for the product. Please consult your local GE Ultrasound representative for further details. For contact
details, refer to Section1-5-1.

Note: GE ULTRASOUND EUROPE, Regulatory Affairs Dept. Beethoven Str. 239, Solingen,
Germany, tel +49-(0)212-2802-243, has been empowered to enter into commitments on our
behalf in any matter concerning the provisions of the 93/42/EEC directive.

2-2-1 Retaining Customized Measurement and Analysis Configuration
When installing software version 2.1C into a Vivid 3 system where it is required to retain the customized
Measurement & Analysis configuration, perform step 1 through step 7 below. Otherwise, if the factory
settings for the M&A configuration are acceptable, you may ignore this procedure and proceed to
Section 2-2-2.

1.) While in Cardiac preset (with either 3S or 7S probe), press Config button.
2.) Click on MA Option tab.
3.) Click on Studies sub-tab.
4.) Select MV study. Then press PRINT A (see note below). This will print out a B&W copy of the
customized user-selected measurements for this study.
5.) Select AV study and then select LVOT Trace. Then press PRINT A (see note below). This will print
out the customized user-selected measurements for this study.
6.) Select PV study. Then press PRINT A (see note below). This will print out the customized
user-selected measurements for this study.
7.) Press Cancel.

NOTE: If a B/W Printer is not available, copy the study manually onto a sheet of paper.

2-2-2 Performing a Complete Back-up


NOTICE IMPORTANT: Contact customer and request that a full incremental backup will be done prior to
upgrade. Please refer them to the Operators Manual, if needed. Ask to remove (delete) unnecessary
patient information, so that the backup process will take minimal time.
Please remind your customers that GE strongly recommends periodic backups be performed of their
Archive. This regular backup process will assure the retention of all the information that is temporarily saved
into the local Archive (hard-disk). The permanent Archive is the backed-up Archive on the variety of medias.
Do not proceed with the upgrade process if a complete incremental process was not performed.
Contact OLC to resolve backup process before proceeding with the upgrade. Ignore this note if backup
of patients information is not needed, as per customers instructions.

WARNING IMPORTANT: During the upgrade process all information on local hard-disk will be erased and later
merged from backup. It is therefore crucial that customer performs a full incremental backup before the
upgrade.

NOTE: After upgrade completion customer will need an Application person to assist him in
setting new presets and preform basic training of new features.
