iVent201 OVT Instructions
The Operational Verification Test (O.V.T.) must be performed
every time a patient circuit is connected or re-connected to the
iVent201 ventilator. This test checks the integrity of the patient
circuit and audible alarm functionality.
Two plastic caps for covering the ends of the patient circuit are
required for the O.V.T., these are included with all patient
circuits offered by VersaMed.
The O.V.T. is composed of two phases:
Phase 1: Checks the integrity of the patient circuit. During this
phase, the circuit is sealed at both the patient connection and
the exhalation valve outlet.
Phase 21: Checks occlusion in the patient circuit and the audible
alarm functionality. During this phase, the circuit is sealed only
at the patient connection.
To perform the automated on-screen O.V.T., follow the
instructions in the Operator’s Manual2, Section 3.1.2, Page 70.
In the event that O.V.T. fails repeatedly in Phase 2, perform an
alternative manual test by following the “iVent201 Manual
O.V.T. Instructions” document3.
Note 1: This phase applies to software versions 19.11.00 and later.
You can verify the software version of your ventilator under Menu
