Using the Device Location Client (optional)
The Device Location Client application is an optional software application
that allows you to display and locate devices visually, using Floor Plans
associated with your hospital's layout. Device location history is also
available. The application is accessible using a separate PC's web browser.
For additional installation information, see the IntelliVue Device Location
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.
Displaying and Locating Devices
The left side of the Client display screen contains a list of clinical units
associated with the current Floor Plan. Each unit contains a list of bed
labels. You view the beds listed within a unit by clicking on the plus sign
next to the unit name.
Note — The beds listed are only those equipped with traditional IntelliVue
telemetry devices or the MX40.
To identify and locate the device associated with the bed, simply click on
the desired bed label. The floor plan and the status bar above the floor plan
image now display the location of the device. Additionally, the status bar
lists the Access Point the device is currently associated with.
Viewing Device Location History
The location history of a particular device is also available. Select a device
from the Device List box and then click on the down arrow in the status bar.
The last five known locations of the device are displayed.
