Use the Patient Demographics window and its associated pop-up keys to admit, discharge, and transfer
All patient demographic and ADT information is shared between the patient monitor and the
Information Center, for example, patients admitted to the monitor are automatically admitted to a
connected Information Center.
Admitting a Patient
The monitor displays physiological data and stores it in the trends as soon as a patient is connected.
This lets you monitor a patient who is not yet admitted. It is however important to admit patients
properly so that you can identify your patient on recordings, reports, and networked devices.
During admission you enter data that the monitor needs for safe and accurate operation. For example,
the patient category setting determines the algorithm the monitor uses to process and calculate some
measurements, the safety limits that apply for some measurements, and the alarm limit ranges.
It is strongly recommended that the same patient data fields be configured to be mandatory at the
N O T E
monitor and the Information Center.
To admit a patient,
Select the patient name field or select the Admit/Dischrge SmartKey to open the
Patient Demographics window.
