General Telemetry-related Functions
ECG Source Tracking at the Information Center
The Information Center continuously checks whether a valid ECG signal is coming from the monitor
or the telemetry device. If you unplug the ECG patient cable from the monitor and plug it into the
telemetry device, the Information Center will automatically switch to monitoring the ECG from the
telemetry device. At the monitor, its own ECG measurement will be deactivated — the ECG Setup
menu will no longer be accessible.
When you unplug the patient cable from the telemetry device and plug it back into the monitor again,
the Information Center will switch back to monitoring the ECG from the monitor. The ECG
measurement will be activated again at the monitor. Note that in this case, as the screen switches back
to the monitor's own measurements, the SpO
In the same way the source is tracked when a telemetry device is directly connected to a monitor, then
disconnected and vice versa.
In case of ambiguity, a yellow INOP message !!CHECK ECG SOURCE indicates that more than one
valid ECG source is active.
If ECG is measured at the monitor, and then the patient is connected to a telemetry device for
monitoring, the Information Center will use the monitor settings for the telemetry device. In general,
the following settings will be synchronized:
1.Va and Vb leads are reset to default (V2, V5) if the configured Va or Vb lead for the telemetry device is not
one of V1 through V6.
2.These setting will only be synchronized when the Information Center supports QT Analysis for Telemetry.
• Not all settings are synchronized; after changing the ECG source, always check that the settings are
• Va and Vb leads are reset to default (V2, V5) if the configured Va or Vb lead for the telemetry device
is not one of V1 through V6
T measurement (if present) will no longer be displayed.
