Viewing Device Location and Location History
You can see the location of an MX40 in the Patient Window. The Device
Location information is identified in the Patient Window by a compass icon
followed by the location name of the access point that the MX40 is currently
connected to. If the location of the device changes, the Patient Window is
updated within 5 seconds of the location change.
You can view the location history for a particular MX40 in the Device
Location History field in the Telemetry Setup window. The field displays
the five most recent Device Location descriptions in ascending order and
updates every time there is a change in location for the device. The total
timespan of the log is 60 minutes.
Because the coverage range of Access Points can sometimes overlap,
including different floor levels, the IntelliVue Device Location feature is not
intended for use when attempting to locate a patient.
Note — If there is a change in location while viewing the Telemetry Setup
window, you must re-enter Telemetry Setup to see the change, as it does
not update automatically.
