1 Planned Maintenance

1.1 Introduction
Planned maintenance (PM) is recurring and should be performed at least every 12 months.
The PM includes visual inspections, cleaning, functional performance checks, and safety
testing1 of the system and peripherals.
Prior to visiting the customer site for the PM, ask the customer to archive the patient data-
base and perform a disk defragmentation (where applicable).
After performing the PM, a Maintenance Protocol must be completed. Distribute a copy of
the completed Maintenance Protocol to the customer, the country Service Office, and the
Customer Service Engineer’s (CSE) record.
Some regions have regulations that require planned maintenance more frequently. It is the
responsibility of the CSE to be aware of and adhere to all local regulations regarding
planned maintenance intervals for this system and peripherals.

1.1.1 Performing Planned Maintenance


While performing a PM, if any of the tests fail, document the failure and do the following:
• If the customer is covered under the equivalent of a full service agreements (such as a
Performance TOP or Shared BASIC plan):
a) Repair the defect and repeat the test.
b) Document the repair and the test results.
c) If it passes the test, check Passed in the Maintenance Protocol.
• If the customer is not covered under the equivalent of a full service agreement (such as
Shared ADVANCED or EXPERT, Performance PLUS or PRO plans, or no service
agreement), discuss the failure and the expected cost of repair with the customer.
- If the customer requests the repair, obtain a customer purchase order authorizing the
billable work, perform the repair, and repeat the test. Document the test results.
- If the customer does not desire the repair, or does not issue a purchase order autho-
rizing the billable work, do not perform the repair. Check Failed on the Maintenance
Protocol and make a note in the open issues section.

1. Electrical safety testing is not required unless a primary electrical component has been replaced. Pri-
mary electrical components are found in the AC subsystem of the ultrasound system.

1.3 Preparations

WARNING Some ultrasound parts may have had patient contact, expos-
ing them to bloodborne pathogens.
¹ When handling parts that may have had patient con-
tact, take appropriate precautions against exposure to
bloodborne pathogens.

PM Discuss Customer Concerns

1. Perform the following:


a) Discuss with the customer how the system has performed.
b) Find out about the concerns that the customer might have regarding the system.
c) Fill out the appropriate section of the Maintenance Protocol to document customer
concerns and the actions taken to resolve the issues.
2. If the customer has concerns in regards to system performance, steps may be required
to address this. If there are no concerns, skip this step and proceed to the next step.

NOTE Be aware of billing implications for the site. If parts and labor
are not covered by warranty or contract, ensure that you
have the customer's permission before performing any work
or repairs for which the customer will be billed.

PM Maintain the Patient Database

NOTE This may not apply to all US systems. The ultrasound system
is not designed to be an archive system. A full Patient Data-
base will slow down operation of the system.

Discuss with the customer whether there are unused studies present on the system. If
there are, work with the customer to either send the unused studies to a storage device or
delete the unused studies.
PM Perform a Disk Defragmentation

NOTE This may not apply to all US systems. If it is not applicable to


perform a disk defragmentation, proceed to (Performing
Maintenance / p. 9).

To optimize system performance, defrag the hard disk drive (HDD). This process may take
an hour or more if the HDD partition, or “volume,” that contains the Patient Database is
large.
