Measurements from an MMS extension connected to an X2 are not available when the X2 is running
on its own battery power. They are only available when the X2 is powered by external power: when
connected to a host monitor, to the external power supply (M8023A) or to the Battery Extension
You can measure temperature using an X1 or X2 Multi-Measurement Module (MMS), one of the
MMS extensions, or the temperature plug-in module - labeled as TEMP.
Temp measurement automatically switches on when you connect a probe. You can switch the
measurement off manually.
Making a Temp Measurement
Select the correct type and size of probe for your patient.
If you are using a disposable probe, connect the probe to the temperature cable.
Plug the probe or temperature cable into the temperature connector socket.
Apply the probe to the patient. You are advised to use a protective rubber cover on rectal probes.
Select an appropriate temperature label.
Check that the alarm settings (on or off, high and low limits) are appropriate for this patient and
this type of temperature measurement.
Make sure you set alarm limits for the correct label. The alarm limits you set are stored for that
particular label only. Changing the label may change the alarm limits.
Selecting a Temperature for Monitoring
Tell the monitor which temperature you want to monitor by selecting its temperature label. The label is
a unique identifier for each type of temperature. When you choose a label, the monitor uses that label's
stored color and alarm settings.
