If all alarms are switched off or paused for one of the devices in use for the patient,
an alarms off or alarms paused symbol on a dark gray background is shown beside all
affected measurement numerics (if so configured). If all red and yellow alarms are
switched off/paused, the symbol is red. If only yellow alarms are switched off/
paused, the symbol is yellow.
Assigning a Telemetry Transceiver with an SRR Adapter to a Monitor
A telemetry device with a short range radio adapter can be assigned to a monitor directly.
Monitors which have this capability have a short range radio symbol
If the monitor is using the MBAN frequency band (2.360 - 2.400 GHz, for US / FCC regulated
countries only), direct assignment of a telemetry device is not possible. If problems occur with the
direct assignment, contact your service personnel to check the frequency band used.
To assign a telemetry device to a monitor:
Press the Check button on the telemetry device.
The measurement selection key on the monitor will change to show the "add cableless" symbol
Select the symbol.
Check that the assignment is successful and that transmission has begun:
Tele Device assigned
A tone sounds at the telemetry device and the Leads Off indicators light
The ECG wave appears on the monitor
To confirm that the correct telemetry device has been assigned, open the ECG Setup menu. The title
of the menu contains the equipment label of the telemetry device; check that this is the correct label.
If a telemetry device is already assigned to a monitor, you cannot assign a further telemetry device to
If the telemetry device goes out-of-range or loses the short range radio connection, it will switch over
to standard telemetry transmission to the Information Center. In this case, the telemetry data is
displayed in the Own Patient Overview Window as described above.
When a telemetry device with a short range radio adapter is assigned to the patient, the short range
radio connection to the monitor is made automatically.
If a telemetry device disappears from the list in the
telemetry device again. If the monitor is not configured to be used with a telemetry device, the add
cableless symbol will appear crossed out
If the telemetry device is removed (unassigned), the short range radio connection will be ended.
Short range radio connections are subject to interruption due to interference from other radio sources
in the vicinity, including microwaves, bluetooth devices and DECT phones. Outside the operating
frequency band and 5% above and below, i.e. the exclusion band according IEC 60601-1-2, section
window, select the correct equipment label for the telemetry device.
