Viewing Device Location and Location History (optional)
Viewing Device Location and Location History
Monitoring with the MX40 at the Information Center
MX40 Device Location information is identified in the Patient Window by a
compass icon followed by the location name of the access point that the
MX40 is currently connected to. If the location of the device changes, the
Patient Window is updated within 5 seconds of the location change.
Location History (IIC)
You can view the location history for a particular MX40 in the Device
Location History field in the Telemetry Setup window. The field displays
the five most recent Device Location descriptions in ascending order. The
total timespan of the log is 60 minutes.
Location History (IIC iX)
You can view the location history for a particular MX40 by clicking on the
compass icon in the Patient Window. The location and time-stamped
history is displayed for each equipment label.
Because the coverage range of Access Points can sometimes overlap,
including different floor levels, the IntelliVue Device Location feature is not
intended for use when attempting to locate a patient.
Note — If there is a change in location while viewing the history in the
Telemetry Setup window, you must re-enter Telemetry Setup to see the
change, as it does not update automatically.
Note — The IntelliVue Device Location feature is not supported for use
with the MX40 WLAN device, Part Number 865352.
