see the alarm status of all the beds in the Care Group on each monitor screen.
There are two main types of Care Groups:
standard care group (Bed-based Care Group) - up to 12 patients monitored by up to 4
unit group (Unit-based Care Group) - for a complete unit with up to 64 patients monitored by
up to 4 Information Centers
Monitors must be assigned to these Care Groups at the Information Center. There is a third care
group which can be assigned locally at the bedside. This is the
all beds (up to 16) from the Information Center your bed is connected to. This care group setting is
typically used in facilities with only one Information center. The selection of beds is automatic and
cannot be changed.
The functions available with Care Groups depend on the Information Center revision your monitors
are connected to. See your Information Center Instructions for Use for further details.
