To print a Vital Signs or Graphical Trends report,
in the Vital Signs or Graph Trends window, select the pop-up key Print to print a
report for the trend group currently on the monitor screen.
Reports include the most recent information in the trends database and extend backwards in time
according to the selected trend interval and your monitor's configuration. Trends reports can be
printed on central or local printers.
The trend databases store information for up to 16 measurements for up to 48 hours.
The values in the trends database are stored as measured by the monitor, they are not averaged values.
The trend resolution defines how often a value is stored. In general, if more than one value is available
for storage in the trends database, the most recent value is used. Some values in the trends are marked
with arrows. This indicates that for this time period, more values were available and the most recent
one is shown.
Example database configuration In this example, we see that the monitor stores the most recent data
at the highest resolution, older data are stored at a lower resolution.
"4 hours @ 12 second resolution" means that the monitor stores trend data every 12 seconds, for the
most recent four hours.
