Understanding Profiles

Understanding Profiles
Profiles are predefined monitor configurations. They let you change the configuration of the whole
monitor so you can adapt it to different monitoring situations. The changes that occur when you
change a complete profile are more far reaching than those made when you change a Screen. Screens
affect only what is shown on the display. Profiles affect all monitor and measurement settings.
The settings that are defined by Profiles are grouped into three categories. Each category offers a choice
of 'settings blocks' customized for specific monitoring situations. These categories are:
Display (screens)
– Each profile can have a choice of many different predefined screens. When you change the
profile, the screen selection configured for the new profile becomes active.
• Measurement Settings
– Each profile can have a choice of different predefined measurement settings. These relate directly
to individual measurements, for example, measurement on/off, measurement color, alarms limits,
NBP alarm source, NBP repeat time, temperature unit (
• Monitor Settings
– Each profile can have a choice of different predefined monitor settings. These relate to the
monitor as a whole; for example, display brightness, alarms off/paused, alarm volume, QRS tone
volume, tone modulation, prompt tone volume, wave speed, resp wave speed, pulse source.

Profiles Menu, showing current settings
You can change from one complete profile to another or swap individual settings blocks (display
screen/monitor settings/measurement settings) to change a subset of a profile. Changes you make to
any element within the settings blocks are not saved when you discharge the patient, unless you save
them in Configuration Mode.
Depending on your monitor configuration, when you switch on or discharge a patient the monitor
either continues with the previous profile, or resets to the default profile configured for that monitor.
