The software in your Giraffe unit has changed to revision level 1.6. New alarm messages, that are not covered in
the current operations and maintenance manual, have been added (see below). Please keep this addendum with
your manual for future reference.
Canopy Pedal Disabled (OmniBed only)
This alarm activates if the canopy pedal has been disabled on either the service screen or the set up screen,
and the pedal is pressed. When the pedal is released, the alarm deactivates.
Bed Height Pedal Disabled
This alarm activates if the bed height pedals have been disabled on either the service screen or the set up
screen, and one of the pedals is pressed. When the pedal is released, the alarm deactivates.
Canopy Pedal Pressed (Omnibed only), Up Pedal Pressed and Down Pedal Pressed
Theses alarms activate if the pedals are pressed while turning on the Giraffe. When the pedal is released, the
alarm deactivates. If the Alarm Silence button is pushed while the pedal is still pressed, a Pedal Failure alarm
will be activated and the pedal will be disabled.
Baby Mode Disabled
This alarm activates if Patient Control is set to manual on the service screen and the Baby Mode button on the
control panel is pressed. To deactivate the alarm, press the alarm silence button.
Disconnect Probe 2 for Baby Mode
This alarm activates when either the Giraffe is in the Baby Mode and a probe is inserted in Jack 2 on the probe
panel, or when the Giraffe has 2 probes connected and the Baby Mode button is pushed.
If the Giraffe is in the Baby Mode and a probe is inserted in Jack 2, the Giraffe will automatically switch to the Air
Mode (if the canopy is open, the OmniBed will automatically switch to the Manual mode). To deactivate the
alarm, remove probe from Jack 2; the unit will continue to operate in the Air or Manual Mode until the Baby Mode
button is pressed.
If the Giraffe is in the Air Mode (Manual Mode on the OmniBed) with probes in Jack 1 & 2, and the Baby Mode
button is pressed, you can deactivate the alarm by pushing the alarm silence button.
Temperature Out of Calibration
This alarm activates if there is a temperature calibration error while turning on the unit; the unit will now use a
default value to control temperature. Pressing the alarm silence will cancel the audio alarm, but the Temperature
Out of Calibration message will remain on the display. You can continue to use the OmniBed while a baby
occupies the bed, but the unit should be serviced before using it with another patient.
