The inner face (blue side) of the blanket can come into contact with the patient’s skin. The blankets meet the required standards for surface contact of a device, these are:
No risk for electrocution.
This may cause the product performance to be compromised. Turn off control unit, wipe off wet area on blanket, remove blanket from use and replace.
Turn off control unit, wipe off wet area. If moisture is observed on or near any cable connection to the controller, remove the controller from use to avoid any damage to the unit and return to Encompass Group LLC. for inspection and assessment.
Note: The control unit meets the electrical safety requirements for a medical device, but ingress is rated as IPXO – Wipe down only.
It may crack or malfunction. It would be wise to replace the controller in the environment of use.
The control unit is rated at 110-120 VAC, 50-60Hz, 350 VAC Peak.
Strapping the arm down may be similar to folding. We have not tested for this and would not recommend it be done while the blanket is turned on and active.
Always strap the patient’s arm under the product not on top of the product.
Close proximity to the edge of the blanket facilitates easy access and connection/disconnection of the SMART Cable connector. This positioning also eliminates any cable to be extended across the patient.

The system meets the requirement under IEC-60601-1-2 3rd Ed (2007) Medical Electrical Equipment – Part 1-2: General requirements for safety –Part 1-2: Collateral Standard: Electromagnetic disturbances - Requirements and tests for General Medical Equipment.
NO. The blanket can be fastened under the arm boards by connecting the edges in the passive section together.
NO. The control unit should always be turned off prior to any folding scenario. It should never be active with a fold back as false readings and subsequent patient warming could be adversely affected. If folding is necessary, turn control unit off or place in standby mode.
NO. Alarm conditions and troubleshooting are found on page 17 of the IFU.
