Manually-started recordings have priority over automatically-started recordings. If an
automatically-triggered alarm recording is running, and a realtime or delayed recording is manually
started, the alarm recording is stopped and the manually-requested recording is started.
More recent manually-started recordings have priority over older manually-started recordings.
If a manually-started recording is running, and another manually-started recording is triggered, then
the older recording is stopped and the more recent manually-started recording is started.
Alarm recordings are prioritized according to alarm priority. If an alarm recording triggered by a
yellow alarm is running and a new alarm recording is triggered by a red alarm, the yellow alarm
recording is stopped and the red alarm recording is started.
The information printed on the recording strip includes the patient name and MRN, bed number, date
and time of recording, recording speed, and (except when the information is printed above the waves)
recording code. Active alarm and INOP messages as well as numerics for all currently monitored
measurements are also printed.
Recording strip annotations are printed at the beginning of the recording strip, either before or above
the waves depending on the configuration. The annotations are updated at regular intervals, every 15
minutes for recordings made at speeds lower than 6.25 mm/s, and every 60 seconds for recordings
made at speeds greater or equal to 6.25 mm/s. When annotations are configured to appear above the
wave, it may not be possible to print them all when the runtime of the recording is too short.
