When a monitor is connected to an Information Center by the wireless IntelliVue Instrument
Telemetry interface, the patient data will automatically be merged in the case of a transfer. This
means there is no patient discharge at the monitor and settings and trend data will be retained. You
will see a message on the monitor and the

In the case where an X2 with an IntelliVue Instrument Telemetry interface is declared as a "telemetry
device" at the Information Center and is connected to a host monitor, it is important to resolve an
existing mismatch between the monitor and the Information Center before disconnecting the X2.
Failure to do so discharges the X2 and synchronizes the demographics and settings to the

For some common mismatch situations, the monitor will simplify the resolution by suggesting a
solution for the mismatch. For example, when a patient arrives after transport and the

Gender, date of birth, height, weight, and nursing notes do not generate a mismatch. If these fields are
different on different devices, the monitor resolves them itself. For example, it may take date of birth
from the Information Center, whilst taking gender from the MMS. Always check the Patient
Demographics after combining patients, to ensure that you are satisfied with the results. Change them
After resolving a patient mismatch, check that the monitor settings (especially patient category, paced
status and alarm limits) are correct for the patient.
