the case of asystole. It is important that the patient category is set correctly so the ECG can be
analyzed correctly and initial arrhythmia alarm limits set.
In the case where an MP5 or X2 with an IntelliVue Instrument Telemetry interface is declared as a
"telemetry device" at the Information Center and is connected to a host monitor, it is important to
resolve an existing mismatch between the monitor and the Information Center before
disconnecting the MP5/X2. Failure to do so discharges the MP5/X2 and synchronizes the
demographics and settings to the Information Center.
Manually Resolving Patient Mismatch
The patient mismatch is indicated by question marks (???) beside the questionable fields in the Monitor
Info Line and in the
patients in Central and Monitor
not have to resolve the mismatch immediately, but the indicators remain until you do.
For some common mismatch situations, the monitor will simplify the resolution by suggesting a
solution for the mismatch. For example, when a patient arrives after transport and the
has been selected, the monitor will show this patient's data and ask

There can be up to three sets of demographic data in the

After you resolve the mismatch, the monitor displays a confirmation window that shows the patient
that has been selected and where data will be erased, if applicable. Confirm your choice. The monitor
automatically displays the

Gender, date of birth, height, weight, and nursing notes do not generate a mismatch. If these fields are
different on different devices, the monitor resolves them itself. For example, it may take date of birth
from the Information Center, whilst taking gender from the MMS. Always check the Patient
Demographics after combining patients, to ensure that you are satisfied with the results. Change them
After resolving a patient mismatch, check that the monitor settings (especially patient category, paced
status and alarm limits) are correct for the patient.
Patient Mismatch - If One Set of Patient Data is Correct
If there is a mismatch between an Information Center and a monitor, or a monitor and an MMS,
choose the data set you want to continue using for this patient by selecting one of the sectors in the
