With the optional Integrated PC, you have computer functionality directly in the monitor. You can use
standard applications (e.g. Web browsers), connect to the hospital network or intranet, and run a
second independent display with content from the patient monitor.
An IntelliVue X2 or MP5 can be connected to your monitor, where it acts as a multi-measurement
module, acquiring measurements for the host monitor. When the X2 or MP5 is disconnected from the
the original host monitor, it continues to monitor the patient as a fully independent, battery powered
patient monitor, eliminating the need for a separate transport monitor. On connection to a new host
monitor, the X2 or MP5 resumes its role as multi-measurement module, ensuring fully continuous
Major Parts and Keys
Devices for Acquiring Measurements
The patient monitor acquires patient measurements using the devices described in this section. You
can also extend the measurement capabilities of your monitor with such devices. Of these
measurement devices, only the X2 has its own power on/standby switch, and can be powered from an
external power supply or a rechargeable battery when not directly connected to the monitor (refer to
the IntelliVue X2 Instructions for Use for details). All the rest take their power exclusively from the
monitor, and switch on automatically when you turn on the monitor. A green power-on LED indicates
when they are drawing power from the monitor. A permanently illuminated, or flashing, red LED
indicates a problem with the unit that requires the attention of qualified service personnel.
All symbols used on the front panels are explained in "Symbols" on page 391.
When connecting devices for acquiring measurements, always position cables and tubing carefully to
avoid entanglement or potential strangulation.
