3 What's New?
What's New in Release F.0?
QT/QTc Interval Monitoring
QT interval monitoring is used to assist in the detection of prolonged QT interval syndrome. The QT
interval is measured and the heart-rate corrected QT value, QTc, is calculated. The monitor also
provides a 'QTc value which tracks variation in the QT interval in relation to a baseline value. High
alarm limits can be set for QTc and 'QTc enabling alarm notification.
Manual Data Entry
Measurement values (for example lab data or manually measured temperatures) can be entered
manually into the monitor and stored in the database. They can then be used for trends, reports and
also be displayed as a numeric on screen, if required.
Horizon Trend Enhancements
The trend indicator arrow indicates how the patient trend has developed in a set time period. This
period is now configurable and can be set to 10 minutes, 5 minutes or 2 minutes. The horizon (or
baseline) can now be set to a range or to a specific value.
Connecting an MP5 to a Monitor (Companion Mode is indicated)
The MP5 monitor can be connected to one of the MP20 to MP90 monitors (then called the host
monitor) and used like an MMS. This provides monitoring continuity in transport situations allowing
measurement data and patient demographics from the MP5 to be transferred to another monitor.
When the MP5 is connected to a host monitor, no alarms will be announced on the MP5.
NBP - Programmable Measurement Sequence
Up to four measurement cycles can be set up which will run consecutively. For each cycle you can set
the number of measurements and the interval between them. By setting the last cycle to run
continuously you can have regular measurements continue after the sequence has run.
New Printing Options For Reports
Reports can now also be printed via an external PC-based print server or to an internal print database,
when no printer is available (for example, during transport). As soon as a printer becomes available, the
reports stored in the database will print automatically.
Manual Pairing At Monitor
Previously, devices could only be manually paired at the Information Center. You can now pair devices
at the monitor as long as the monitor is already connected to the Information Center.
Moving Windows And Menus
Windows and menus can now be moved on the monitor screen. Using touch or a mouse you can select
the title of a window and then "drag" it across the screen. Some positions on the screen are not allowed,
such as ones overlapping the alarm field or the monitor info line.
Invasive Pressure Changes
Wave cursor - A cursor is now available on the realtime pressure wave to allow you to define a position
and store the corresponding value.
Reduced alarm limit steps in lower ranges - The alarm limits setting in 2 mmHg steps is now possible
in ranges up to 50 mmHg (previously up to 30 mmHg).
