Monitoring Invasive Pressure
Measurements from an MMS extension connected to the monitor are not available when the monitor
is running on battery power. They are only available when the monitor is powered by the external
power supply (M8023A).
Do not use the MP2 in combination with other monitors using an M1006A pressure module and the
HP1290A pressure transducer. This may cause interference on the respiration or invasive pressure
You can measure pressure using the monitor's built-in pressure measurement (optional), or one of the
Setting up the Pressure Measurement
Plug in the pressure cable.
Prepare the flush solution.
Flush the system to exhaust all air from the tubing. Ensure that the transducer and stopcocks are
free of air bubbles.
If air bubbles appear in the tubing system, flush the system with the infusion solution again. Air
bubbles may lead to a wrong pressure reading.
