2 Basic Operation
When you switch the monitor on, it starts up in monitoring mode. To change to a different mode:
Select the Main Setup menu.
Select Operating Modes and choose the mode you require.
Your monitor has four operating modes. Some are passcode protected.
• Monitoring Mode: This is the normal, every day working mode that you use for monitoring
patients. You can change elements such as alarm limits, patient category and so forth. When you
discharge the patient, these elements return to their default values. Changes can be stored
permanently only in Configuration Mode. You may see items, such as some menu options or the
altitude setting, that are visible but 'grayed out' so that you can neither select nor change them.
These are for your information and can be changed only in Configuration Mode.
• Demonstration Mode: Passcode protected, this is for demonstration purposes only. You must not
change into Demonstration Mode during monitoring. In Demonstration Mode, all stored trend
information is deleted from the monitor's memory.
• Configuration Mode: Passcode protected, this mode is for personnel trained in configuration tasks.
These tasks are described in the Configuration Guide. During installation the monitor is configured
for use in your environment. This configuration defines the default settings you work with when
you switch on, the number of waves you see and so forth.
• Service Mode: Passcode protected, this is for trained service personnel.
When the monitor is in Demonstration Mode, Configuration Mode, or
Service Mode, this is indicated by a box with the mode name in the center
of the Screen and a symbol in the bottom right-hand corner. Select this
field to change to a different mode.
Standby mode can be used when you want to temporarily interrupt monitoring.
To enter Standby mode,
Press the SmartKeys key
Either select the Monitor Standby SmartKey
Or select the Main Setup SmartKey, then select Monitor Standby.
The Standby screen looks like this:
