11 Monitoring NBP
Switching Pulse from NBP On/Off
In the process of making the NBP measurement, a pulse value can be derived and displayed. The pulse
value is displayed together with the time the measurement was made. After one hour the value
becomes invalid. There are no alarms associated with pulse from NBP.
When the accelerated measurement is in use, no pulse value can be derived.
To switch the display of the pulse value on or off:
Assisting Venous Puncture
You can use the NBP cuff to cause subdiastolic pressure. The cuff deflates automatically after a set
time (adult/pediatric 170 seconds, neonatal 85 seconds) if you do not deflate it.
Puncture vein and draw blood sample.
During measurement, the NBP display shows the inflation pressure of the cuff and the remaining time
in venous puncture mode.
Performing a venous puncture while automatic or sequence NBP measurements are being made
suspends the measurement series for the duration of the venous puncture inflation and for three
NBP is not user-calibrated. NBP pressure transducers must be verified at least once every two years by
a qualified service professional, and calibrated, if necessary. See the Service Guide for details.
