How to troubleshoot the ADC Diagnostix 2100 Fingertip Pulse Oximeter

  1. If the SpO2% or Pulse Rate do not display, ensure the finger is inserted properly and take additional measurements to verify the device is working.
  2. If the SpO2% or Pulse Rate aren't solidly displayed, make sure the patient is sitting still and that the finger is inserted properly.
  3. If the monitor will not power on, check to verify the batteries have power and that they are inserted correctly before contacting the customer service center.
  4. If the indicator panel turns off, either no signal was detected for 8-10 seconds or the batteries are too low to operate, try replacing the finger or changing the batteries.
