top of the patient's ear. Incorrect leveling may give incorrect values.
Selecting a Pressure for Monitoring
Tell the monitor which pressure you want to monitor by selecting its pressure label. The label is a
unique identifier for each type of pressure. When you choose a label, the monitor uses that label's
stored settings, for example color, wave scale and alarm settings. The label also determines which
algorithm is used to process the pressure signal, so an incorrect label can lead to incorrect pressure
values.
