I've not had instruction in the use of PCAs, and this is a device

frequently used in the hospital.

Although there was some opportunity to observe the use of them,

and several opportunities to practice aspects of their use - it would

be helpful if there was some instruction manual to better explain

how to use them.

I've been googling for information, but haven't yet found this type

of information.

Can anyone guide me to a source that has maybe some pictures to

show the buttons, with explanation?

thanks for the links, the ones that I saw did look like the one in the first linK.

What make is it?


thankyou - doesn't seem to be any instructions in the link for use

of the PCA.

Still searching.

Any more ideas about where to find instructions?

Google for the name of the manufacturer. You will need the model name or number too. Also, your Educator may have a training CD or VHS tape on file. If not, contact the rep for that equipment and get that mailed to the facility. Whoever handles your materiels will be able to tell you who is the rep. Sometimes if all I know is the mfg. name I get the rep's name off their website. It is called "Customer Service".
