When you select Standby mode at the monitor, the bedside goes into Standby mode but other assigned
devices may continue monitoring.

ECG Source Tracking at the Information Center
The Information Center continuously checks whether a valid ECG signal is coming from the monitor
or from another assigned device. If you unplug the ECG patient cable from the monitor and plug it
into another device, the Information Center will automatically switch to monitoring the ECG from the
other device. At the monitor, its own ECG measurement will be deactivated and the
will no longer be accessible.
When you unplug the patient cable from the other device and plug it back into the monitor again, the
Information Center will switch back to monitoring the ECG from the monitor. The ECG
measurement will be activated again at the monitor. [Note that in this case, as the screen switches back
to the monitor's own measurements, the SpO
In the same way the source is tracked when a telemetry device is directly connected to a monitor, then
disconnected and vice versa.

ECG source is active.
For some measurements, settings can be synchronized between the monitor and another measurement
device. For example, if ECG is measured at the monitor, and then the patient is connected to a
telemetry device for monitoring, the Information Center will use the monitor settings for the telemetry
device. In general, the following settings will be synchronized:
HR/Pulse Alarm On/Off, Heart Rate High/Low Limit
