CPR Release
The CPR Release allows the caregiver to save valuable time
in an emergency situation. When activated, the CPR Release
automatically lowers the head section of the bed to the flat
position, enabling emergency procedures to be performed
without unnecessary loss of time. After the head section is
down, the knee section also comes down to the flat position.
On beds equipped with an integrated air surface (ZoneAire®
Sleep Surface), the Auto Firm function engages automatically
when the CPR Release is activated. This provides a firm
surface that supports a CPR board.
NOTE:
The headboard of the Advanta™ Bed can be used as a CPR
board in emergencies.
Emergency CPR Release Button
Location: On both sides of the head section, near the
head end of the bed.
To Activate: Press the red button on either side of the
CPR Release handle, and pull the handle.
Release your hand as the head section
begins to come down.
WARNING:
If electrical power is lost, the head section still lowers,
but the Auto Firm function does not engage. The
optional air mattress maintains the same air pressure
it had before power loss. The effectiveness of the
CPR board may be reduced.
Emergency CPR Release Handle
NOTE:
If electrical power is lost, the air mattress maintains the same level of pressure it had at the time of power loss.
NOTE:
If electrical power is lost, the knee section, if raised, cannot be lowered.
NOTE:
Do not use the CPR Release to lower the head section in non-emergency situations. Use the Head Down controls
located on the siderail.
NOTE:
After activating the CPR Release, allow 30 seconds for the head motor to resume its normal operating position before
using the Head Up or Head Down controls.

Caregiver Controls
Resetting the CPR
If the head section stops lifting, but the head motor runs for a brief amount of time; the CPR needs to be reset.
WARNING:
Unplug the bed from its power source before inserting the IV rod for manual operation. Unexpected resumption
of power can cause the IV rod to rotate and cause injury.
Location: Access hole at the head end of bed.
To Reset: Insert a Hill-Rom P2217 IV rod into the access
hole at the head end of bed until it engages the roll
pin in the end of the screw assembly.
• Push the IV rod hard enough to push the ejection
spring back from the roll pin, allowing the IV rod to
engage.
• Turn the IV rod clockwise until the screw assembly
reaches its mechanical stop (you should hear a
click).
NOTE:
The head section will not raise during this procedure.
IV Pole Insertion Points for Manual Operation
WARNING:
Remove the IV rod before plugging the bed into an appropriate power source. Resumption of power can cause
the IV rod to rotate and cause injury.
• Remove the IV rod from the head screw assembly.
• Plug the bed into its appropriate power source.
• Hold the CPR release in the activated position until the motor stops running. The bed is now operational.
Central Brake and Steer
The Advanta™ Bed is equipped with 4-wheel braking and 2-wheel
steering. The pedal controls can be accessed near the casters at
each of the four corners of the bed.

casters rotate, and the Brake Not Set indicators flash continuously.
Location: At each caster on the bed.
To Activate: At any wheel, push down fully on the orange pedal (the one
closest to the head end of the bed). When the Brake Not Set
indicator goes out, the brakes are locked.
CAUTION:
Unless the bed is about to be moved, the brakes should always be set
and locked.
Central Brake and Steer—Braking
NOTE:
After setting the brakes, try to move the bed slightly to ensure that the brakes are locked.
NOTE:
When the brakes are not locked, the Brake Not Set indicators flash continuously.
Steering
The 2-wheel steering system locks both foot end casters in a straight position
for easier transport.
Location: At each caster on the bed.
To Activate: At any wheel, push down fully on the green pedal (the one
closest to the foot end of the bed). The Brake Not Set
indicators will start to flash.
CAUTION:
Unless the bed is about to be moved, the brakes should always be
set and locked.
NOTE:
When the brakes are not locked, the Brake Not Set indicators flash
continuously.
Central Brake and Steer—Steering
NOTE:
During patient transport and in steer mode, push the Advanta™ Bed from the head end, using the headboard handles
as hand holds.

Caregiver Controls
Neutral
In the neutral position, the swivels and casters move freely, allowing the bed to
be moved in any direction. This function is used for exact positioning of the bed
and maneuvering in confined areas
Location: At each caster on the bed.
To Activate: At any wheel, push either the orange or green pedal down
slightly until the pedal is flat (in a horizontal position).
CAUTION:
Unless the bed is about to be moved, the brakes should always be set

continuously.
Central Brake and Steer—Neutral
Bed Functions
The Advanta™ Bed is equipped with standard bed function controls on the caregiver side of each head end siderail,
and at the footboard control panel. These controls operate all of the motor functions of the bed.
Bed Up/Bed Down (Hi-Lo)
The Bed Up/Bed Down controls allow you to raise or lower the bed 13.25" (33.65 cm). The low position is for
general use and to assist with patient egress, while the high position is used for patient examinations.
Location: Outside left siderail, outside right siderail, footboard control panel.
To Activate: Press and hold the Bed Up key to raise the bed.
Press and hold the Bed Down key to lower the bed.
WARNING:
Leave the bed in the low position when the patient is unattended. This can reduce the possibility of
patient falls and the severity of any resultant injuries.
NOTE:
The Bed Not Down indicator illuminates when the bed is not in the lowest position.
9
Caregiver Controls
Head Section
The Head Up/Head Down controls enable you to raise or
lower the head section of the bed. The head section of the
bed can be raised to any desired angle of inclination up to
65°. Using the head angle indicator (see “Head Angle
Indicator” on page 27), you can raise or lower the head
section to specific desired angles.
Location: Outside left siderail, outside right siderail;
left patient siderail, right patient siderail.
To Activate: Press and hold the Head Up key to raise
the head section of the bed.
Press and hold the Head Down key to lower
the head section of the bed.
Advanta™ Bed with Head Section Raised
NOTE:
Head Angle Indicators, located on the caregiver sides of the head end siderails, display the
amount of head section angle in degrees.
NOTE:
For the caregiver’s convenience, the automatic contour function is only activated from the
patient siderail controls.
NOTE:
When the Head Up control is activated from the patient siderail controls, the automatic contour function is activated.
This raises the knee section automatically up to 15° when the Head Up function is activated. The automatic contour
function helps keep the patient from sliding towards the foot end of the bed. This function is not activated from the
caregiver controls, but is accessible to caregivers by using the patient siderail controls. Alternatively, the caregiver can
simultaneously press the head up and knee up controls.
CAUTION:
Do not manually lift or lower the head section with the CPR release handle. If you do, the head section will not
elevate properly until it is reset. Damage to the bed can occur when the head section is lifted with the CPR
release handle.
If you manually raise or lower the head section while holding the CPR release in the activated position, the head
section may not operate until you reset the CPR, refer to “Resetting the CPR” on page 7.
If the head section needs to be manually lifted or lowered, refer to “Manual Operation.” on page 34.
Knee Section
The Knee Up/Knee Down controls allow you to raise or lower the knee section of the bed to the
desired angle of inclination, up to 35°.
Location: Outside left siderail, outside right siderail;
left patient siderail, right patient siderail.
To Activate: Press and hold the Knee Up key to raise the knee section of the bed.
Press and hold the Knee Down key to lower the knee section of the bed.

Caregiver Controls
Trendelenburg/Reverse Trendelenburg
The Advanta™ Bed can achieve up to 11° of Trendelenburg or
Reverse Trendelenburg. You can activate the Trendelenburg and
Reverse Trendelenburg controls at any bed height, and the bed
adjusts its height as necessary.
Location: Footboard control panel.
To Activate: Press and hold the Trend key to place the bed into
the Trendelenburg position.
Press and hold the Reverse Trend key to place the
bed into the Reverse Trendelenburg position.
Trendelenburg
NOTE:
A Trendelenburg Angle Indicator located on the footboard control
panel displays the angle of Trendelenburg or Reverse Trendelenburg
in degrees and inches.
NOTE:
When the Trendelenburg or Reverse Trendelenburg functions are
activated, the head and knee sections automatically return to the flat position.
Reverse Trendelenburg
NOTE:
When the Trendelenburg or Reverse Trendelenburg function is activated with the bed in the full low position, the bed
automatically adjusts its height (rises slightly) enough to allow for full Trendelenburg or Reverse Trendelenburg
articulation.
Chair In/Chair Out
When you activate the Chair In control, the bed
automatically adjusts the head, knee, and hi-lo (head and
foot) motors to position the bed in a “recliner chair”
position.
Location: Footboard control panel.
Advanta™ Bed in the Chair Position
11
Caregiver Controls
To Activate: Press and hold the Chair In key to place the bed in the chair position.
Press and hold the Chair Out key to place the bed in the flat position.
NOTE:
The head, knee, and hilow functions may be used to articulate the bed out of the chair position. However,
once the hilow function has been activated, the Chair Out function may not operate as described above.
WARNING:
To prevent personal injury, do not transport patients when the Advanta™ Bed is in the chair position.
WARNING:
Check periodically to ensure that the patient remains properly positioned. The use of pillows can help maintain
side-to-side positioning.
WARNING:
For large patients or patients at risk for skin breakdown, use the Chair Out control to tilt the chair back some
after attaining the chair position. This helps to optimize the interface pressure performance.
Siderail Back Lighting
The siderail back lights illuminate the controls and
make the switches more visible in dim light. The back
lighting can be turned on or off at the footboard control
panel.
Location: Footboard control panel.
Advanta™ Bed Siderail (Patient Side)

Caregiver Controls
ZoneAire® Sleep Surface
Pressure Relief
The Pressure Relief mode is for patients who are assessed to be at risk for pressure ulceration, and
who require pressure relief. In the Pressure Relief mode, the air pressure in each zone of the mattress
is automatically maintained to optimize the interface pressure. Air volumes change to control the
surface around the patient’s body, especially bony areas, in order to evenly distribute the pressure
across the body. The surface adjusts to the patient’s weight distribution, position, and bed articulation.
When you activate the Surface Power key, the Pressure Relief mode starts automatically.
Location: Footboard control panel.
To Activate: Press and release the Surface Power key to turn the function on or off. The green indicator light on the
Surface Power key illuminates when the system is on.
Auto Firm
The Auto Firm mode inflates the air mattress to maximum firmness. This helps with patient transfers,
procedures, and repositioning. The Auto Firm mode comes on automatically when the emergency CPR
Release is activated. After 30 minutes, the mattress returns to its original setting. This helps ensure that
the patient does not rest on a firm surface for an extended period of time.
Location: Footboard control panel.
To Activate: Press and release the Auto Firm key to turn the mode on or off. The green indicator
light on the Auto Firm key illuminates when the mode is active.
NOTE:
The Auto Firm mode engages automatically when the emergency CPR Release is activated.
Heel Relief
The Heel Relief mode is for patients who are assessed to be
at risk for pressure ulceration, with particular risk to the heel
area due to their level of mobility. The Heel Relief mode
decreases the pressure under the heel area, and slightly
raises the surface under the calves. There are three heel
relief zones, and it is important to ensure that you select the
correct one. To do this, check the heel indicator labels on
either side of the bed frame at the foot section. Determine
the position of the patient’s heels relative to the heel relief
indicator labels, and select the correct heel relief zone
according to the following guidelines:
•
Heel position 1. If the patient’s heels are positioned within the blue
label area marked “1,” select Heel Relief mode 1.
•
Heel position 2. If the patient’s heels are positioned within the green
label area marked “2,” select Heel Relief mode 2.
•
Heel position 3. If the patient’s heels are positioned within the orange
label area marked “3,” select Heel Relief mode 3.

Bed Scale (Optional)
The Advanta™ Bed scale has an accuracy of 1%, and an
operating range of 0 to 450 lb (0 to 204 kg). The scale
display and six scale keys are located on the footboard
control panel. For best results using the scale, follow the
instructions carefully.
Advanta™ Bed Scale Controls
Before Operating The Scale
The scale is very sensitive. The weight reading will be most accurate if the bed is not touching anything. This includes
the headwall, lines such as pendant controls, ventilators, or drainage bags. Anything that affects the weight on the bed
even slightly will cause an incorrect weight to appear on the display.
It is also important that no one touch the bed while the scale is operating. For example, touching the footboard can add
several pounds to the displayed weight.
Before placing the patient on the bed, prepare the sleep surface to accurately weigh the patient. Place all linens,
blankets, pillows, or other items the patient will be using on the bed. A list of these items posted near the bed could be
helpful for future reference.
Turning the Scale On or Off
If the scale display reads “OFF,” press the On/Off key to turn on the scale power.
NOTE:
The scale automatically turns off after 5 minutes.
NOTE:
Be sure to place any items on the bed that the patient will be using (linens, pillows, blankets, etc.).
Zeroing the Scale
The bed scale must be set at zero before weighing a patient.
•
Set the scale at zero by pressing and holding the Zero/000.0 key on the scale control panel.
•
Continue holding the Zero/000.0 key until the scale display “000.0” stops flashing; then release the key.
•
Important! After you release the Zero/000.0 key, the scale display “CALC” will appear. Do not touch the bed
until the display stops flashing “CALC” and a beep sounds. This may take up to 20 seconds.
•
Place the patient on the bed. For the most accurate reading, the patient must be lying still and centered on the
mattress.

Optional Features
Optional Features
Sleep Surfaces
The Advanta™ Bed can be equipped with three different mattresses. Each mattress is designed for the needs of the
patient, and the selection of which mattress to use depends upon the patient’s risk for pressure ulceration. Risk
categories and recommended mattresses include:
•
Low risk patients—Comfortline Ultimate® Mattress or Comfortline Basic® Mattress
•
Moderate-to-high risk patients—ZoneAire® Sleep Surface
The assessment of the patient’s risk for pressure ulceration is made by qualified caregivers.
CAUTION:
A sound risk assessment and protocol is necessary to determine the appropriate surface for the patient’s
condition.
Comfortline Ultimate® Mattress and Comfortline Basic® Mattress
The Comfortline Ultimate® and Comfortline Basic® mattresses are all-foam, layered mattresses with high resiliency
foam and foam side bolsters. The Comfortline Ultimate® mattress is also modular. These mattresses provides basic
pressure reduction, and are recommended for patients in the low risk category for pressure ulceration.
ZoneAire® Sleep Surface
The ZoneAire® Sleep Surface is a six-zoned, air and foam mattress that provides significant improvement in the
reduction of pressure ulceration for moderate-to-high risk patients. The six zones are the head, seat, thigh, and three
heel zones. The ZoneAire® Sleep Surface has three modes of operation—Pressure Relief (normal), Heel Relief, and
Auto Firm. For information on the operation and controls, see “ZoneAire® Sleep Surface” on page 25.
NOTE:
The mode of operation for the ZoneAire® Sleep Surface should be selected using good patient assessment and
protocol practices.
Pressure Relief Mode: This is the normal and default mode for the ZoneAire® Sleep Surface. This mode is for
patients who are assessed to be at risk for pressure ulceration, and who require pressure relief. In this mode, the
pressure within each zone of the surface is automatically maintained to optimize interface pressure. Air volumes are
changed to more evenly distribute pressure around the patient’s body, especially the bony prominences. The surface
adjusts to the patient’s weight distribution and position, along with the bed articulation.
Heel Relief Mode: The Heel Relief mode is for patients who are assessed to be at risk for pressure ulceration, require
pressure relief, and whose level of mobility is such that the patient’s heels are at particular risk of ulceration. The
ZoneAire® Sleep Surface has three heel relief modes.
NOTE:
The ZoneAire® Sleep Surface must first be in the Pressure Relief mode before the Heel Relief mode can be activated.
Auto Firm: This mode inflates the mattress and maximizes the firmness of the surface to assist in patient transfers or
repositioning. This mode is also engaged when the emergency CPR Release feature on the bed is activated.
35
Optional Features
NOTE:
Refer to the mattress control panel to determine the active surface mode. An illuminated indicator shows the active
mode.
CAUTION:
A sound risk assessment and protocol is necessary to determine the appropriate surface for the patient’s
condition.
CAUTION:
The sleep surface impermeability and pressure relieving capabilities could be affected by needle sticks or other
bladder punctures. Caregivers should be instructed to avoid bladder punctures caused by needle sticks or
improper use of x-ray cassette holders. The sleep surface should be regularly inspected for such damage.
NOTE:
Patients with body weight or length near the recommended limits should be monitored more frequently for desired
results (see “Technical Specifications” on page 3).
Accessory AC Receptacle Option (120 V Beds Only)
The optional, accessory receptacle, located at the foot of the bed, is a convenient
source of AC power for accessory devices. It should not be used for life support
equipment, since it introduces additional over-current limitations, and grounding
connections into the supply line.
Beds that incorporate the accessory receptacle option are equipped with two power
cords. Electrical isolation is provided between accessory receptacle and bed
supplies and grounds, so that leakage current from faulty equipment, plugged into
the receptacle, will not, under fault conditions (loss-of-ground in the receptacle or wall supply), become part of the risk
current for the bed.
WARNING:
Risk of power outage. Do not use accessory outlet for life support equipment. Plug life support equipment
directly into hospital supply. Do not plug bed and auxiliary receptacle into wall receptacles on the same circuit.
The Advanta™ Bed accessory receptacle is overload protected by an 8A circuit breaker. Since the bed is rated 12A
under fully loaded, worst case operating conditions, and the receptacle is rated 8A, the combination could exceed the
capacity of a single supply circuit. Therefore, the bed and receptacle should always be plugged into separate supply
circuits.
Grounding continuity should be checked periodically. Receptacle is rated 120V, 60Hz, 8 Amps, single phase.
SHOCK HAZARD:
Electrical shock hazard. Refer servicing to qualified personnel. This bed is provided with two power cords.
Unplug both cords before opening service compartment, J-box, or receptacle.
