    New-B problem (cyanosis)

    To get Cyanosis on our New-B we have to set the Cyanosis-threashold value to 10% below the actual value we want it to be triggered.

    If we want the cyanosis to be activated at 85% we have to set the value to 75%

    Hase anyone else noticed this problem. Or is it supposed to be like this ?

    Re: New-B problem (cyanosis)

    Our technical support team provided the following response:

    The advanced version works similar to SimBaby where the cyanosis begins to turn on at 10% below the threshold and then increases in brightness until it gets to the threshold. This simulates progressive degrees of lack of oxyen.

    The standard version simply turns on when cyanosis enabled at the brightness level chose.

    We hope this helps answer the query.

    I have a question. Do you have to change the light bulb often for the cyanosis, or if it stops functioning do you have to return SimBaby/SimNewB/SimMan 3g for repair?

    Hi Peter Johann,

    the cyanosis lights on both NewB/SimBaby & SimMan3G is made up from LED lights, and should not be "worn out" If they stops resonding the problem is probably related to a bad cable or contact. Unfortunately the lights are a part of the airways and not sold separately, so a replacement of the airways is necessary. To do this you should get a service technician to do the job.

    I have had to replace SimNewB's cyanosis panels several times. Obviously it's a known fault, since they don't charge me for them.

    Have to revoke the previous comment. This time I had to buy my cyanosis panels. I guess getting 4-5 for free was nice while it lasted! If you need to purchase, go to SimNewB's page under Parts:
