VITALINQ™ INTRODUCTION
Vitalinq™ is a communication system designed to
meet the specific needs that arise during diagnostic
and interventional procedures. Vitalinq™ enables
TM
physicians to have continuous two-way conversation
with control room operators throughout diagnostic
and catheterization procedures. Capable of picking
by VIS-A-VIS, INC.
up conversation in a normal tone of voice, Vitalinq™
allows control room operators to respond immediately
to physicians requests. As vital signs are monitored by the control room operator, the physician
can receive up-to-the-moment communication on the patient’s condition.
The Vitalinq™ communication system provides speakers and microphones for the procedure
room (LAB) and control room (TEK). The speakers are mounted in the ceiling. Control room
operators have the option of using the overhead speaker and desk microphone, or a headset.
The procedure room microphone is attached to the video monitor (or monitor cluster) opposite
the physician, or optionally, integrated into the ceiling by replacing a standard ceiling tile.
The unique construction of our procedure room microphones contribute to Vitalinq’s high
intelligibility, even within the acoustically active space of a full-functioning lab. Designed to
minimize the loss of articulation by reducing the potential echo path, Vitalinq™ gathers and
transmits speech in a highly efficient manner.
Complete and comprehensive, the Vitalinq™ removes the need for talk-listen switching,
eliminating the risks posed by breaks in conversation. Physicians and control room operators
may converse without interruption.
Integrated into the console but operationally separate from the communication system is a
stereo system capable of playing music from a variety of sources. Sources include AM/FM
radio (subject to the limitations imposed by building shielding effects), compact discs and
music from external devices such as a smart phone, satellite radio, flash drive or any device
capable of output to a mini-stereo or USB jack.
We strive to provide the most flexible system available. To learn more about Vitalinq’s
advanced capabilities, please contact us at 1-800-319-6014 or by email at info@vitalinq.com.
Advanced capabilities and options include:
• Wireless headset to replace corded headset
• Auxiliary wireless headsets are available for scrub or circulator nurses to provide discreet
communication with the control room operator.
• Remote connections for headsets & foot switches.
• Support for multiple headsets / desk microphones.
• Telephone interconnectability.
Contact us for details.

SETTING UP THE VITALINQ™ SYSTEM
2.1
Description of the VITALINQ™ system
Refer to Section 6 “INSTALLATION” for installation instructions.
The Vitalinq™ is very easy to use and versatile. The standard system is composed of a pair of
music speakers and a communication speaker in both the procedure and control rooms. The
speakers are mounted overhead in the ceiling. The procedure room also has a microphone
mounted to the monitor array opposite the physician. (If specifically requested when the
system was purchased, you may have an overhead microphone in the ceiling instead of the
monitor microphone). The control room is where the console is located to which all devices
are ultimately connected. Also in the control room and plugged into the console, are a desk
microphone and a headset with foot switch. One desk microphone, headset and foot switch are
included with each system.
On the front of the console, divided between the top and bottom, are controls for the music
system and controls for talking and listening to the procedure room, respectively. At the rear of
the console are 1/4” jacks for foot switches and a thumbnail adjustable control for the headset
talk volume. Words in BLUE throughout this document refer to labels on the console.
The LISTEN control, FOOT SWITCH jack and HEADSET jack on each side of the console
work together. If a headset is plugged into the HEADSET jack on the left side of the console,
the foot switch for this headset needs to be plugged into the LEFT FOOT SWITCH jack on the
rear of the console. Conversely, if a headset is plugged into the HEADSET jack on the right
side of the console, the foot switch for this headset needs to be plugged into the RIGHT FOOT
SWITCH jack on the rear of the console. When depressed, the foot switch allows the headset
to transmit speech to the procedure room. Without a foot switch connected, the headset
constantly transmits sound to the procedure room.
The volume of the headset earpiece is adjusted using the LISTEN volume control located
adjacent to the HEADSET jack. The volume for the procedure room communication speaker
(used to transmit speech from the control room) is controlled by the HEADSET TALK
VOLUME switch located on the rear of the console.
The CONTROL ROOM LOUDSPEAKER region at the bottom center on the front of the
console is for control of the desk microphone and ceiling speaker in the control room. In the
CONTROL ROOM LOUDSPEAKER section are a TALK switch and an overhead LISTEN
VOLUME control. The BUTTON and TALK VOLUME are only used for setup.
The TALK/MUTE switch on the console should always be in the TALK position when using
a desk mic, and the LED will be RED. The TALK/MUTE switch and its associated LED are
used primarily with a Control room pyramid microphone (optional equipment), which has no
other switch. In this situation, when the LED is RED the people in the procedure room can
hear you. With the TALK/MUTE in MUTE, the LED will be GREEN and the Control room
mic is off.

2.2
Initial settings
Turn LISTEN controls to the 12:00 position. LISTEN VOLUME control OFF. Plug power
cord into 120 volt AC outlet. Set the TALK/MUTE switch to TALK. The LED above talk switch
should be RED.
2.3
Adjusting the headset
Put on headset and listen to person in procedure room. LISTEN controls what you hear.
HEADSET TALK, on rear of console controls volume that procedure room hears. The headset
microphone tube telescopes. Move microphone tube tip close to the corner of your mouth.
Pressing foot switch allows you to talk and listen simultaneously to procedure room.
2.4
Adjusting the overhead controls
Unplug the headset. The CONTROL ROOM LOUDSPEAKER controls are at the lower front
of the console between the HEADSET jacks. Turn the LISTEN VOLUME switch to 3 and
listen to the procedure room. You should be able to hear background noise. Lock the desk mic
in the talk position by depressing the LOCK button on the microphone base. The blue lamp
behind the LOCK button will illuminate. Turn the TALK VOLUME control clockwise while
pressing the BUTTON until you just barely hear feedback squeal. Release the BUTTON. The
TALK volume level is now set. As you switch the LISTEN VOLUME louder or softer, the
sound in the Lab varies by an inverse amount to prevent feedback. When finished, be sure to
unlock the microphone by pressing the LOCK button again. The blue lamp will go out.

Initial operation of the headset
BLUE words are labels on console. Place the TALK switch on MUTE and the LISTEN
VOLUME control at OFF. Turn the headset LISTEN control to the middle of its rotation. The
headband slides in and out of the ear-cup. Put the headset on. The headset microphone tube
telescopes. Move it so that the microphone tube tip is near the corner of your mouth. Listen to
someone in the procedure room.

Pressing the foot switch allows you to talk via the headset, to people in the procedure room. You
will hear the people in the procedure room whether the foot switch is pressed or not. Pressing
the footswitch will allow your voice to be transmitted to the procedure room. If no foot switch is
used, the headset microphone will be “live” all the time. Adjust the headset LISTEN volume for
a comfortable level by means of the volume control labeled LISTEN. The left headset LISTEN
volume control is for a headset plugged into the left jack and the right one controls the right
jack. The foot switches control the same side jack. The white slotted shaft on the rear by the left
footswitch jack labelled HEADSET TALK controls both of the headsets talk volume.
3.2
Operation of overhead speaker and desk microphone
Adjust the LISTEN VOLUME control to a comfortable level for people in the control room.
To talk to the procedure room without using the headset, place the TALK switch in the TALK
position. The GREEN light will turn RED. The desk mic has a push to talk switch on its base.
If desired, the microphone may be locked in the always on mode
by pressing the LOCK button on the microphone base. There
is a blue light behind the button that lights up to show that it
is locked on. To release the always on mode, press the LOCK
button again. There is a blue light behind the button that lights
up to show that it is locked on.
If the TALK VOLUME control is turned too far clockwise, you
will hear a hum or squeal; turn it down using your thumbnail
or small screwdriver, as described in Section 2.5. It is normal
to have to speak louder when using the overhead TALK
position. When not in use leave the TALK switch in MUTE.
The talk volume may be adjusted by following the directions on
the console.
To lock the microphone in the “always
on” position, press the “Lock” button.
To unlock, press the “Lock” button
again. A blue light behind the button
is illuminated when the microphone is
locked on.
The “Talk” button is used for normal Push-To-Talk operation.

TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE
VITALINQ™ Communications Troubleshooting Guide
Call us first! We want to hear from you. 1-800-319-6014 or support@vitalinq.com
The communication system between the procedure room and control room is very easy to
repair. All devices unplug for easy replacement.
5.1
Most likely problems
Nothing works.
Check to see that the power cord is plugged in, and that the white and blue cables are plugged
into the proper jacks.
No music.
Check to see that the white and blue cables are plugged all the way into the proper jacks. Try a
CD. FM or AM stations may be blocked by the shielding effect of the building. See section 4
for music system operating instructions.
People in Procedure Room hear unwanted speech or noise from Control Room.
If the Console ‘TALK’ switch is up (LED is red) and the desk mic talk bar is depressed or
locked on, people in the Procedure Room will hear the Control Room via the Control Room
microphone. This will also happen if a headset is connected and the Foot Switch is pressed or it
is unplugged or not plugged in all the way.
Operator can’t hear people in the Procedure Room while wearing Headset.
Verify that Headset LISTEN control is turned clockwise; Verify that Headset plug is in all the
way. Try another Headset. Try plugging the Headset into the other jack on the Console and
adjust its LISTEN control. Verify that the Foot Switch is plugged into the same side jack.
HEADSET AND FOOTSWITCH MUST BE CONNECTED TO OPPOSITE SIDE
FROM DESK MIC CONNECTION. IF HEADSET IS PLUGGED INTO SAME SIDE
AS DESK MIC, THE HEADSET MIC WILL BE MUTED.
Doctor can’t hear the Operator.
•
•
•
•
Verify that Headset plug is in all the way.
Try another Headset if one is availabe.
Unplug the Foot Switch. If the Doctor can hear, then replace Foot Switch.
Move Headset and Foot Switch to jacks on the other side of Console. (The left and right
sides of the Console are separate Headset channels.)
• On the rear of the Console are small white slotted shaft, which controls Headsets “TALK”
volume. The “TALK” and “LISTEN” volume controls and Foot Switch control the Headset
plugged into the same side of the console.
• Place the ‘TALK-MUTE Switch’ in the up (“TALK”) position. Press the desk mic talk bar.
(This uses the desk microphone and not the Headset.) If the Doctor can now hear the Operator then the problem is that the Headset or Headset circuit of the Console is not working.
25
If the Doctor still can’t hear, the problem is either in the White Cable, the Console or the
Cath Lab microphone. Call 800-319-6014.

6INSTALLATION
6.1
Planing the Vitalinq™ installation
The Vitalinq™ has been designed for ease of installation. Please feel free to contact Vis-A-Vis
customer support at 800-319-6014 at anytime to assist with an installation.
There are microphones and speakers for the procedure room and for the control room. The
control room utilizes a desk microphone or a headset with foot switch (both are provided). The
procedure room microphone is what we refer to as the monitor microphone and is attached to
the face of the monitor or one of the monitors in the array opposite the physician1. All cables
are pre-terminated and may be run free or in conduit, subject to local regulations.
Using the layout in “6.2 Installing Vitalinq™ speakers” and the instructions in 6.1.1 and
6.1.2, select locations for the speakers and monitor microphone. Always check for adequate
space in the ceiling above the locations selected for the speakers. Follow any applicable local
regulations regarding securing the speakers.
6.1.1
Procedure room (LAB)
In the procedure room the monitor microphone should be located on the video monitor directly
across from where the physician would typically stand and attached to the monitor with it’s
long axis oriented vertially. See “6.3.2 Monitor microphone placement”. For the physician to
hear best, the communication speaker should be near the physician and more than six feet away
from the microphone and the door to the control room. The music speakers should be placed
about four feet on either side of the physician, usually at the ends of the table. Follow local
regulations regarding securing these devices.
6.1.2
Control room (TEK)
In the control room, the operator’s desk microphone should be placed in a position convenient
for the operator. For the best operation, the communication speaker should be more than six
feet away from the microphone and the door to the procedure room. The music speakers should be
placed in the ceiling, three or four feet on either side of the operator. If provided, the optional
auxiliary wireless headset should be located near the console. Follow local regulations
regarding securing these devices.
6.1.3
Control room console
The cables from the speakers and monitor microphone need to connect to the rear of the desk
console. See layout typical layout on following page. If you are installing before the walls
are sheet-rocked, use a junction box near the console and one in the ceiling. Connect them
with a 1” conduit. Cables can be pulled through by staggering the connectors. Follow local
regulations regarding securing these devices.
The communication system has volume controls for headset and overhead devices. Headset
jacks are on the front of the console and foot switch / desk microphone jacks are on the rear.
* If a special microphone referred to as the pyramid microphone was provided with the system you are
installing, please refer to the supplemental instructions which came with it for it’s installation. This
microphone is the size of and replaces a 2’ x 2’ ceiling tile.

6.2
Installing Vitalinq™ speakers
6.2.1
Installing speakers in ceiling
There are two modular, gray eight conductor jacks on the communication speaker and music
speakers. The ethernet cables can be connected to the speakers in any convenient sequence.
The speakers mount in the ceiling.
1. Determine placement of all speakers. In the procedure room, a communications speaker
should be located in the general area near the physician and more than six feet away from
the monitor microphone and the door to the control room (ideally above and just behind
the physician). A right music speaker should be located at the table end that would be to the
right of the physician, and a left music speaker at the table end that would be to the left of
the physician.
2. In the control room, the communication speaker should be more than six feet away from
the desk microphone and the door to the procedure room. Music speakers should be located
left and right appropriate to the operator position.
3. Remove the ceiling tiles (if present) in the locations you have determined for the
ceiling devices.
4. In the speaker box, the communication speakers are packed individually and are marked
COMM. The two (2) pairs of music speakers are packed individually, two left and two right
and are marked MUSIC. A speaker support plate is provided for each speaker.
* Be careful when handling the support plate as the edges can be sharp!!
5. Take the ceiling tiles (if present) you removed in step 2 and draw a straight line on the
backside from corner to corner. Place the support plate over the lines you drew on the tile
and line up the template with the lines to center the template. The plate must not extend
past the edges of the tile. Mark the circle and cut it out with a knife or drywall saw. The
hole should be 6-5/8” diameter. Remove the grille of the speaker by rotating the securing
legs on the back of the speaker and gently pushing them down towards the speaker grille.
Replace the legs after grille removal to their original position. Put the speaker in the hole
from the front side of the tile. Position the support plate over the speaker on the rear of the
tile. Rotate out the legs on the back and screw down the four phillips head screws on the

Follow local regulations regarding securing these ceiling devices. If none apply, add a
safety wire (ceiling hanger wire) from the grid support to the device.
6. Install all speakers into selected locations.
All speakers have dual GRAY jacks, and there is no particular sequence for interconnection.
This allows for much flexibility in cable routing. Connect all of the devices in the procedure
room (LAB), including COMM speaker and the two MUSIC speakers (left and right) with
short white cables. The procedure room device nearest the console is connected to the console
at the LAB WHITE jack with a long white cable. Spare cables and connectors are provided. In
the control room, connect COMM and the two MUSIC speakers (left and right) with short blue
cables. Connect the control room speaker nearest the console to jack on the console labeled
TEK BLUE, with a blue cable.
Using the provided color coded cables as instructed (white for procedure room and blue for
control room) will aid in the event that Vis-A-Vis customer support needs to be contacted to
assist with troubleshooting.

Monitor Microphone Installation
6.3.1
Monitor microphone description
The monitor microphone is the microphone (mic) used in the procedure room to pick-up and
transmit the physicians speech back to the control room operator.
The monitor mic is a 13 inch long black anodized aluminum tube with a 1/2” square cross
section. A short coaxial cable with a BNC connector is attached to the microphone. One side
of the microphone has two strips of Dual-Lock™ (velcro) which is used to adhere the mic
to the bezel of the monitor or monitor array across from the physician. See illustrations on
following pages.
6.3.2
Monitor microphone placement
The monitor mic has a pick-up pattern of approximately 180º in the horizontal plane and about
20º in the vertical plane and therefore the mic must be oriented with it’s long axis vertical.
See image below.
1. Determine the best location for adhering the mic in a vertical orientation along the bezel of
the monitor (edge of face of monitor) across from the physician.
2. Clean the bezel area of the monitor and remove the adhesive backings from the DualLock™ and attach firmly to the selected area of the monitor. Apply light pressure to the
mic for approximately 30 seconds.

Monitor microphone cable connection
The monitor microphone can be connected to the system in several ways. Three of the most
common methods are described below and illustrated on the following page. Other methods
are essentially variations of these.
Option A
This method connects the monitor microphone directly to the RCA jack on the rear of the
console labeled LAB MIC (or MM5 on earlier models) using a supplied coaxial cable. This
coaxial cable will need to be routed through the monitor boom/drape so that one end is
available at the monitor accross from the doctor in the procedure room and the other end is
available where the console is located in the control room. At the monitor end of the cable, a
BNC to BNC coupler is attached to couple it with the microphone cable. At the console end, a
BNC to RCA adapter is used to plug the cable into the LAB MIC RCA jack on the console.
Option B
This method connects the monitor microphone to a supplied BNC/RCA coaxial to ethernet
adaptor box. The adaptor box is adhesive backed and typically mounts on the rear of the
monitor. The monitor microphone is plugged into the adaptor box using a supplied BNC
to RCA adaptor. A supplied ethernet cable is then routed from the adaptor box through the
monitor boom/drape to the last speaker in the chain of speakers in the procedure room cieling.
It then plugs into the open RJ45 connector on the speaker circuit board.
Option C
Like Option B, this method connects the monitor microphone to a supplied adaptor box. The
adaptor box is adhesive backed and typically mounts on the rear of the monitor. The monitor
microphone is plugged into the adaptor box using a supplied BNC to RCA adaptor. An ethernet
cable is then routed from the adaptor box through the monitor boom/drape to the rear of the
console where it is plugged into a supplied splitter that it shares with the white ethernet cable
for the procedure room speakers. The splitter is then plugged into the RJ45 jack on the rear of
the console labeled LAB WHITE.
Other connection combinations are possible. For instance, a coaxial cable could be run through
the monitor boom/drape into the cieling or equipment room where it could connect to the
adaptor box. From there a ethernet cable could then be run to the last speaker in the procedure
room speaker series or back to the control room. Further, any existing two conductor cable that
is available and already routed through the monitor boom arm could be used. The cable does
not need to be sheilded.

• Plug foot switch into foot switch jack on the SAME side that you plugged in the headset.
• Plug the Desk Mic into the jack marked FOOT SWITCH OR AUX IN on the opposite side
from the headset. For example, if you plug the headset into the right jack, plug the desk mic
into the left one (marked LEFT FOOT SWITCH OR AUX IN)
• Plug the white Procedure room cable into the jack marked LAB WHITE.
• Plug the blue Control room cable into the jack marked TEK BLUE.
• The jacks marked BLACK, YELLOW, or SILVER are used for optional equipment.
• Instructions for using these jacks are included with the equipment.
• The ANT jack is provided for using an external antenna in weak reception areas. This antenna is not supplied by Vis-A-Vis.
There are many factors that influence the connection of the the monitor microphone (lab mic),
so there are several options for connecting it to the console. See section 6.3.3 for available
options. The monitor mounted microphone can be directly connected to the LAB MIC jack
with a BNC to RCA adapter.
