You can connect your monitor to an Information Center on a network, using one of the optional
Standard wired LAN
IntelliVue Instrument Telemetry System (IIT).
Do not connect patient monitors to the standard hospital network.
Additionally, when an IntelliVue X2 or MP5 is equipped with IIT and declared at the Information
Center as a telemetry device, it allows data continuity when paired to a host monitor. After
disconnection from the host monitor, it continues to monitor the patient during transport and
provides continuous data to the same sector on the Information Center. (See "Assigning a Telemetry
Device and a Monitor to One Patient" on page 263.)
If your monitor is connected to a network, a network symbol is displayed in the upper left corner next
to the bed label. To see details about the Care Group, the monitoring equipment, and technical
information about the network,
in the monitor info line, select the bed label.
Be aware that some network-based functions may be limited for monitors on wireless networks in
comparison to those on wired networks.
Printout functionality and data export are not guaranteed when using a standard hospital network.
Using the Integrated PC
If your monitor has the optional integrated PC (iPC), you can run applications on the iPC. The
applications display data on the monitor's display (or on a second independent display) that is
generated on and retrieved from the iPC or externally.
For details about applications, refer to the XDS/iPC Instructions for Use.
The monitor runs independently of the iPC, and vice versa.
Some clinical applications may show data from another patient. Be aware that some of the data on
your patient monitor display may not always be from your patient.
Applications running on the iPC cannot act as a primary alarming device and cannot be relied
upon for alarm notification. There may be no audible or visible indications apart from what is
shown on the screen and any data shown may be delayed.
Starting the iPC
Your monitor may be configured to have the iPC start up automatically when the monitor is switched
on. If not:
