Cableless Respiration Measurement
The new CL Respiration Pod can be used with the monitor. It is a battery-powered, cableless,
respiration rate measuring device that is applied to the patient's chest using an adhesive attachment. In
addition to the respiration rate it can also provide posture information and optionally a pulse
Hexad Derived 12-lead ECG
The Hexad ECG lead system uses a 6-lead set connected to four limb electrodes (using Mason-Likar
placement) and two chest electrodes. The algorithm derives the four remaining V-leads to provide a
non-diagnostic 12-lead view, including ECG waves and ST measurements.
Accelerated Measurement for NBP
An accelerated measurement is now available. This allows a faster measurement result but requires that
the patient keeps the limb in question still. The accelerated measurement must be switched on in
What's New in Release J.0
Flexible, Patient-oriented Workflow (with PIIC iX only)
With the IntelliVue Information Center iX, more flexible, patient-oriented workflows are supported
for admitting, tracking and transferring patients. This allows you to adapt monitor use to the patient
data flow models in your specific facility and department.
When the patient monitor is connected to an IntelliVue Information Center iX, an extended
comparison of patient data allows more intelligent admission and transfer procedures. A
key can be used to search through the patient lists at the Information Center and other connected
systems and take over the corresponding data found.
A transfer can be initiated in the unit at the monitor, on patient arrival or patient departure, or centrally
at the Information Center.
When used together with an Information Center iX, extended equipment management functionality is
now available. Depending on how equipment is used in your facility, there are various ways to
associate devices with patients, beds or monitors.
Additionally there are mechanisms to automatically free up equipment that is no longer used. Using the
