Setting the Date and Time

To set the date and time:
Select the Date, Time screen element from the monitor's info line to enter the Date, Time
Select, in turn, the Year, Month, Day, Hour (in 24 hour format, only) and Minute as
necessary. Select the correct values from the pop-up list.
Select Store Date, Time to change the date and time.
If your monitor is connected to an Information Center, the date and time are automatically taken from
Once it is set, the internal clock retains the setting even when you switch off the monitor.
Checking Country-Specific Default Settings
Some settings are made in the factory to match the typical requirements in a specific country. Line
frequency, units for weight and height, and ECG cable colors (AAMI or IEC) have been set to
appropriate values. If you suspect that these settings may not match your institution's requirements,
check the settings and change them if necessary as described in the Configuration Guide.
Before starting monitoring, check that the current configuration meets your requirements, especially
patient category, alarm limits and paced setting.
If you need to enter configuration mode:
In the Main Setup menu, select Operating Modes.
Select Config and enter the passcode.
The passcode for configuration mode is given in the monitor's service documentation.
The monitor displays Config at the right hand side of the status line and in the center of the Screen
while you are in configuration mode.
Before you leave configuration mode, always be sure to store any changes you made. You must store
changes made to each Settings Block and to each Profile, individually. As it may be difficult to
remember whether the settings you changed belong to a Monitor Settings block or a Measurement
Settings block, we recommend that you store each block before you leave configuration mode.
To leave configuration mode:
In the Main Setup menu, select Operating Modes and then select Monitoring.
Handing Over the Monitor
If you are handing over the monitor to the end-users directly after configuration, make sure that it is in
Monitoring mode.
Ensure that the users have access to the following documentation delivered with the monitor:
• Instructions for Use (this book) - for more detailed questions during use
• Quick Guide - for quick reminders during use
