A. Apply the cuff to the patient as you normally
would. Press and hold the manual button to inflate the cuff. Watch the
pressure displayed and release the button to start deflating the cuff.
Place your stethoscope on the brachial artery to take a manual
A. When predicting a temperature the Fastemp™ takes
into account a patient’s physiological conditions. Depending on the
patient’s level of perfusion, a normal measurement can take 4-10 seconds
before a final temperature is displayed. If the patient has a fever
(99.7 °F/ 37.6 °C or above), the measurement can take longer. This is
done to increase accuracy and ensure reliability of the temperature.
A. The ADC Adview® takes automated BP
measurements using the oscillometric method. It supplements this with
the ability to take measurements as you would if you were using a
A. This signifies a missing temperature probe. This
may occur while switching the probes, blue (oral/axillary) to red
(rectal) or vice versa. To solve the problem: Remove and then place the
probe in the well. Furthermore, you may need to ensure that the
temperature well (the rear portion of the temperature module) is well
seated on the display. Along the top of the module, the edge of the well
should be flush with the display. Remove and carefully slide the well
onto the display. Finally, if the error has not been cleared, turn the
unit off and then on again.
A. An Adview® Diagnostic Station
equipped with the optional Bluetooth™ capability can send blood
pressure, temperature, and oxygen saturation data via a Bluetooth™
wireless EMR/EHR interface. An ADC Software Development Kit (SDK) is
available to facilitate integration with EMR/EHR vendors. Send us an
email at email@example.com for more information.

A. Yes, both options can be ordered separately and easily added to an ADC Adview® blood pressure unit at any time. To upgrade your ADC Adview® device, please review the list of accessories on the model options tab. Contact your local distributor for details.
A. Yes. Accurate temperature measurement requires
the probe to be at normal room temperature. After taking a measurement,
wait for the probe to return to room temperature or wipe the probe with
an alcohol wipe before taking a subsequent measurement.
A. Please reference the ADC Adview® service manual (ADC Adview®
part #9000SM) if the unit needs calibrating. Alternatively, you can
contact an authorized service center, and we will be happy to arrange
the calibration for you.
A. Take a manual BP to compare. Leave the cuff on
the patient as it was for the auto measurement. Press and hold the
manual button to inflate the cuff. Watch the pressure displayed, and
release the button to start deflating the cuff. Place your stethoscope
on the brachial artery to take a manual measurement. Because of the
differences between the automated method used by the ADC Adview®,
called oscillometry, and the manual method, called auscultation, it is
known that there will be instances where the two methods on the same
patient will produce measurements that are different. This should happen
infrequently. If this occurs consistently on patient after patient, we
recommend that you check the calibration of the ADC Adview®.
Start with the device powered off. While holding down the automatic
button on the front of the BP module, toggle on the power button on the
right side of the main enclosure. The “CAL” message is displayed in the
pulse rate display to indicate that the system is in the calibration
mode. During this mode, the system pressure displays in the systolic BP
Using a T-connector (ADC Adview® part #991), connect a
calibrated pressure reference and control, such as a manometer and
inflation bulb, to the pressure hose connector of the ADC Adview®.
Compare the pressure reference to the ADC Adview® at several pressures throughout the range, 0 to 270mmHg. If the difference between the pressure reference and the ADC Adview®is no larger than 2mmHg, the ADC Adview® is calibrated correctly for operation.
Exit the calibration check by pressing the automatic button again.
Once the display shows dashes as the systolic BP, you are now ready to
take a measurement.
A. Remove the battery bay cover and position the
rechargeable battery within, ensuring proper alignment of polarities.
Replace the cover securely and connect the device to AC mains power via
the power supply to turn the device on. Ensure the battery is fully
charged before use.
A. If the ADC Adview® will not be used for an extended period
of time, it should be attached to the power supply until fully charged
(all battery icon segments stay illuminated).

Failure to follow these recommendations may permanently reduce the life
and charge capacity of the battery. If storing for 30 days or longer, it
is recommended to disconnect the battery from the device after fully
charging the battery.
