Preface
Publication Conventions
Purpose: Standardize conventions for representing information is a uniform way of communicating
information to a reader in a consistent manner. Conventions are used so that the reader can easily
recognize the actions or decisions that must be made. There are a number of character and
paragraph styles used in this publication to accomplish this task. Please become familiar with them
before proceeding forward.

Section 1.0
Safety & Hazard Information
1.1 Text and Character Representation

Within this publication, different paragraph and character styles have been used to indicate potential
hazards. Paragraph prefixes, such as hazard, caution, danger and warning, are used to identify
important safety information. Text (Hazard) styles are applied to the paragraph contents that is
applicable to each specific safety statement. Words describe the type of potential hazard that may
be encountered and are placed immediately before the paragraph it modifies. Safety information
will normally include:
• Type of potential Hazard
• Nature of potential injury
• Causative condition
• How to avoid or correct the causative condition

EXAMPLES OF HAZARD STATEMENTS USED


It’s important that you read and understand hazard statements, and not just ignore them.

DANGER DANGER IS USED WHEN A HAZARD EXISTS WHICH WILL CAUSE SEVERE
SEVERE PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH IF INSTRUCTIONS ARE IGNORED. THEY
PERSONAL CAN INCLUDE:
INJURY • ELECTROCUTION
• CRUSHING
• RADIATION

WARNING WARNING IS USED WHEN A HAZARD EXISTS WHICH COULD OR CAN CAUSE
SERIOUS SERIOUS PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH IF INSTRUCTIONS ARE IGNORED. THEY
PERSONAL CAN INCLUDE:
INJURY • POTENTIAL FOR SHOCK
• EXPOSED WIRES
• FAILURE TO TAG AND LOCKOUT SYSTEM POWER COULD ALLOW FOR
UN-COMMANDED MOTION.

Preface Page 15
GE MEDICAL SYSTEMS
DIRECTION 5224533-100, REVISION 1 SSD HEATER REPLACEMENT INSTRUCTIONS

CAUTION Caution is used when a hazard exists which can or could cause minor injury to self or others
Minor if instructions are ignored. They include for example:
Personal • Loss of critical patient data
Injury
• Crush or pinch points
• Sharp objects

NOTICE Notice is used when a hazard is present that can cause property damage but has absolutely
Property no personal injury risk.They can include:
Damage • Disk drive will be destroyed
Only
• Internal mechanical damage, such as to the x-ray tube
• Coasting the rotor through resonance.

1.2 Graphical Representation

Important information will always be preceded by the exclamation point contained within a
triangle, as seen throughout the Preface chapter. In addition to text, several different graphical icons
(symbols) may be used to make you aware of specific types of hazards that could possibly cause
harm.

Section 2.0
Publication Conventions
2.1 General Paragraph and Character Styles

Prefixes are used to highlight important non-safety related information. Paragraph prefixes (such as
purpose, example, comment or note) are used to identify important but non-safety related
information. Text styles are also applied to text within each paragraph modified by the specific
prefix.

EXAMPLES OF PREFIXES USED FOR GENERAL INFORMATION


Purpose: Introduces and provides meaning as to the information contained within the
chapter, section or subsection, Such as used at the beginning this chapter for example.
Note: Conveys information that should be considered important to the reader.
Example: Used to make the reader aware that the paragraph(s) that follow are examples of information
possibly stated previously.
Comment: Represents “additional” information that may or may not be relevant to your situation.

2.2 Page Layout

mber Publication Title

Headers and footers in this publication are designed to allow you to quickly identify your location.
The document’s part number and revision number appears in every header on every page. Odd

Preface Page 17
GE MEDICAL SYSTEMS
DIRECTION 5224533-100, REVISION 1 SSD HEATER REPLACEMENT INSTRUCTIONS
numbered page footers indicate the current chapter, its title and current page number. Even page
footers show the current section and its title, as well current page number.

2.3 Computer Screen Output/Input Text Character Styles

Within this publication, mono-spaced character styles (fonts) are used to indicate computer text
that’s either screen input and output. Mono spaced fonts, such courier, are used to indicated text
direction. When you type at your keyboard, your are generating computer input. Occasionally you
will see the math operators “greater than” and “less than” symbols used to indicate the start and
finish of variable output. When reading text generated by the computer, you are reading it as
computer generated output. In addition to direction, characters are italicized (e.g. italics) to indicate
information specific to your system or site.
Example: This paragraphís fonts represents computer generated screen ìfixedî
Fixed Output output. Itís output is fixed from the sense that it does not vary from
application to application. Itís the most commonly used style used to
indicate filenames, paths and text that does not change form system to
system. The character style used is a fixed width such as courier.
Example: This paragraphís font represents computer screen output that is
Variable Output ìvariableî. Its used to represent output that varies from application to
application or system to system. Variable output is sometimes found placed
between greater than and lesser than operators for clarification. For
example: <variable_ouput> or <3.45.120.3>. In both cases, the < and >
operators are not part of the actual input.
Example: This paragraphís font represents fixed input. Itís computer input that is
Fixed Input typed-in via the keyboard. Typed input that does not vary from application
to application or system to system. Fixed text the user is required to
supply as input. For example: cd /usr/3p
Example: This paragraphís font represents computer input that can vary from
Variable Input application to application or system to system. With variable text, the
user is required to supply system dependent input or information. Variable
input sometimes is placed between greater-than and less-than operators.
For example: <variable_input>. In these cases, the (<>) operators would
be dropped prior to input. For example: ypcat hosts | grep <3.45.120.3>
would be typed into the computer as ypcat hosts | grep 3.45.120.3 without
the greater-than and less-than operators.

2.4 Buttons, Switches and Keyboard Inputs (Hard & Soft Keys)

Different character styles are used to indicate actions requiring the reader to press either a hard or
soft button, switch or key. Physical hardware, such as buttons and switches, are called hard keys
because they are hard wired or mechanical in nature. A keyboard or on/off switch would be a hard
key. Software or computer generated buttons are called soft keys because they are software
generated. Software driven menu buttons are an example of such keys. Soft and hard keys are
represented differently in this publication.
Example: A power switch ON/OFF or a keyboard key like ENTER is indicated by applying a character style
Hard Keys that uses both over and under-lined bold text that is bold. This is a hard key.
Example: Whereas the computer MENU button that you would click with your mouse or touch with your hand
Soft Keys uses over and under-lined regular text. This is a soft key.
