5 Managing Patients and Equipment
If prompted, re-admit the patient to the new monitor: in the
monitor, select the patient in the X2 to retain the data in the X2. This will upload the patient
demographics, and, if configured, the measurement settings and trend data stored in the X2 to the
monitor. Verify that the settings for patient category and paced mode are correct.
Data Upload from an MMS
The Multi-Measurement Module stores eight hours of patient trend data at one-minute resolution. It
also stores patient demographic information and the measurement settings and calibration data for the
measurements carried out by the MMS and any connected extensions. This data can be uploaded to an
IntelliVue patient monitor, if your monitor is configured to do so and if at least five minutes of trend
information is stored in the MMS.
Your monitor's data upload settings are defined in Configuration Mode to suit your patient transfer use
How data is uploaded to the host monitor depends on the configuration mode settings

Resolving Patient Information Mismatch
When you connect together devices which store patient demographic data, for example:
an MMS and a monitor,
an X2 and a host monitor,
a monitor and an Information Center,
the system compares patient category, paced status, and unique patient identification in order to
synchronize this information. If configured to do so, the monitor indicates a mismatch if the
information is not identical.
Depending on your monitor's configuration, this mismatch may be automatically resolved or you may
have to resolve it manually. If your monitor is configured to resolve mismatches automatically,
depending on the configuration, either the monitor or the Multi-Measurement Module data is
It is important to resolve the mismatches as soon as they are identified. Failure to do so could
result in using incorrect/confusing data to make clinical decisions. Certain settings, for example
