13 Monitoring Invasive Pressure
WARNING
If measuring intracranial pressure (ICP, IC1 or IC2) with a sitting patient, level the transducer with the
top of the patient's ear. Incorrect leveling may give incorrect values.
Selecting a Pressure for Monitoring
Tell the monitor the source of the pressure you want to monitor by selecting an appropriate pressure
label. The label is a unique identifier for each type of pressure. When you choose a label, the monitor
uses that label's stored settings, for example color, wave scale and alarm settings. The label also
determines which algorithm is used to process the pressure signal, so an incorrect label can lead to
incorrect pressure values.
