2 What's New?
What's New in Release H.0
The new Battery Extension provides additional battery power for situations when no mains power is
available, for example during transport, and can typically power the monitor with MMS Extension for
at least 6 hours.
New Design for the User Interface
The user interface for the patient monitors has been redesigned to bring the presented information
into the foreground, letting the structural elements such as keys and frames retreat into the
background. Additionally special regard was given to improved usability and compatibility with
standard software products.
12 Lead ECG Enhancements
You can now preview the 12-Lead ECG at the bedside before you send it to the Information Center.
A new dedicated 12-Lead ECG Report can be printed in diagnostic quality from the bedside.
Support For Use of IntelliVue Cableless Measurement Devices
The new Cableless Measurement Devices are patient-worn, battery powered measurement devices for
and NBP. The devices provide measurement values on the built-in display and communicate
them to the monitor using a wireless short range radio (SRR) interface. They can also be controlled via
SRR from an assigned patient monitor.
Vital Signs Trend Based on NBP Measurement Times
You can now have the NBP measurement determine the interval between the columns on the Vital
Signs trend. Each NBP measurement will generate a column in the trend table. The values for the
other measurements are added to the column to provide a complete vital signs set for the NBP
What's New in Release G.0?
Short Range Radio Interface for MP2
A short range radio interface is now available for the MP2 monitor. This allows a telemetry transceiver
with a short range radio adapter to be assigned to the monitor, resulting in a direct connection. The
measurement data from the telemetry transceiver appear directly on the monitor screen with a minimal
delay and are combined with the monitor data in one sector at the Information Center.
IntelliVue XDS Solution
Using the IntelliVue XDS solution it is possible to view an independent monitor screen on an external
display. The XDS solution consists of a medical grade PC-based hardware platform, XDS application
software and the XDS connectivity option on the monitor. Depending on the configuration you can
also operate the monitor from the external display. The XDS must be connected to the same Local
Area Network (LAN) as the monitor.
It is also possible to use an existing PC, connected to the same LAN, to host the XDS Application
New Fields in the Admission Form
A Middle Name field is now available in the admission form - whether it appears is configurable. Two
additional ID fields, Lifetime Id and Encounter Id, can also be configured to appear and their names
can be customized to fit hospital requirements.
