MX40 Connection to the Information Center

MX40 Connection to the Information Center
Monitoring with the MX40 at the Information Center
Once the MX40 has been assigned to a sector at the Information Center, the
settings (alarms, arrhythmia and configured Unit settings) are synchronized
with the MX40. You may see a "Settings sync'd" message in the Status Area
on connection, re-connection, and anytime the settings are updated at the
Information Center. Arrhythmia Learning/Relearn occurs on connection
and re-connection to the IIC.
Since Relearn happens automatically at the IIC, if learning takes place
during ventricular rhythm, the ectopics can be incorrectly learned as the
normal QRS complex. This can result in missed detection of subsequent
events of V-Tach and V-Fib. For this reason, you should:
Respond promptly to any technical alarm.
Ensure that the arrhythmia algorithm is labeling beats correctly.
Upon loss of connection to the Information Center the MX40:
turns on its display
displays the "NO CENTRAL MONIT" INOP
uses the last known settings from the Information Center.
new physiological alarms are announced locally only.
Active alarms that occurred prior to the loss of connection can be
viewed in the Alarm List.
When a loss of battery power occurs while not connected to the Information
Center, the MX40 retains the last known alarm limits and vitals trends data
but this is not sent to the Information Center at re-connection. Patient name
is restored at re-connection.
When operating wirelessly via a Short-range Radio connection to an
IntelliVue Patient Monitor, changes made to patient name are updated at
the Information Center and the patient monitor, however, they are not
reflected in the Patient Information Area on the MX40. The update occurs
when network connection is restored.
