Events are electronic records of episodes in your patient's condition. You can trigger them manually,
or set them to trigger automatically during pre-defined clinical situations.
Depending on the level of event surveillance available on your monitor, the information stored for
each event episode can include:
waveforms for up to four measurements of your choice (depending on episode type, see "Events
Pop-Up Keys" on page 292 for more details)
numeric vital signs for all the measurements monitored
any alarm conditions active when the event episode was triggered
any annotations connected with the event.
You can navigate through the event database to view events retrospectively, and you can document
events on a recording or report marked with the patient name, bed label, and the data and time.
When an MP5 is connected to a host monitor, event surveillance will be disabled. No new events will
be detected and no existing events will be deleted. There is no data exchange between the host monitor
and the MP5 for event surveillance. When the MP5 is disconnected from the host monitor event
surveillance will resume and new events will be detected.

surveillance, or neonatal event review (NER). This table lists the differences between the options.
