3   Trouble  shoot  Power  Supply   See  Flowchart  on  Power  Supply,  and  BTA  skills  on  Power  Supply.  
4   Does  the  screen  turn  on?   Does  the  screen  turn  on?  
5   Check  circuit  components   Troubleshoot  the  electrical  components.  See  BTA  skills  on  Electrical  Simple.  
6   Does  the  speaker  work?   Is  sound  audible?  
7   Check  speaker/  circuit  components   Troubleshoot  the  electrical  components.  See  BTA  skills  on  Electrical  Simple.  
8   Is  it  measuring  a  signal?   Is  the  monitor/Doppler  producing  HR  sound?  
9   Check  if  probe  is  connected   Check  if  the  probe  is  connected  to  the  fetal  doppler/monitor.  
10    Connect  the  probe   Connect  the  probe.  See  BTA  skills  on  Mechanical  –  Attachments.  
11    Check  if  probe  is  clean   Clean  the  probe.  See  BTA  skills  on  Cleaning.  
12    Check  internal  circuitry,   Troubleshoot  the  electrical  components.  See  BTA  skills  on  Electrical  Simple.  
13    Check  if  you  need  more  gel   Apply  ultrasound  gel  to  the  probe.  
14    Is  the  heart  rate  in  a  normal  range?   Is  the  heart  rate  in  a  normal  range?  
15    Check  circuitry  and  check  gel   Troubleshoot  the  electrical  components  and  apply  ultrasound  gel  to  the  probe  as  necessary.  See  BTA  skills  on  Electrical  Simple.  
16    Does  the  printer  print?   Is  there  a  marking  on  the  paper?  
17    Is  the  correct  paper  in>   Do  you  have  the  proper  thermal  paper?    
18    Check  paper   Check  to  see  whether  paper  is  full.    
19    Is  it  calibrated?   Is  the  proper  Heart  Rate,  timing,  and  contraction  output?  Is  the  proper  calibration  signal  upon  start?

30    Fasten  belt.   Fasten  belt.  
31    Go  to  begin.   Go  to  begin.  
32    Does  the  signal  make  sense?   Does  the  uterine  contraction  signal  correlate  with  the  contractions  the  mother  is  having?  
33    Does  the  machine  give  the  appropriate  metrics?   Does  the  machine  output  sensible  numbers  for  contraction  force  and  frequency?  
34    Check  the  circuitry.   Troubleshoot  the  electrical  components.  See  BTA  skills  on  Electrical  Simple.
