in the Vital Signs or Graph Trends window, select the pop-up key Print to print a
report for the trend group currently on the monitor screen.
Reports include the most recent information in the trends database and extend backwards in time
according to the selected trend interval and your monitor's configuration. Trends reports can be
printed on central or local printers.
To make a Vital Signs recording,
in the Vital Signs window, select the Print/Record pop-up key, then select the Record
Vitals pop-up key.
Vital Signs recordings print the trend data for the current group and trend period shown in the
Vital Signs window.
The trend databases store information for up to 16 measurements for up to 48 hours.
The values in the trends database are stored as measured by the monitor, they are not averaged values.
The trend resolution defines how often a value is stored. In general, if more than one value is available
for storage in the trends database, the most recent value is used. Some values in the trends are marked
with arrows. This indicates that for this time period, more values were available and the most recent
one is shown.
Example database configuration In this example, we see that the monitor stores the most recent data
at the highest resolution, older data are stored at a lower resolution.
"4 hours @ 12 second resolution" means that the monitor stores trend data every 12 seconds, for the
most recent four hours.
Aperiodic Trends Database
Aperiodic trends do not count toward the maximum number of trends allowed by the trend
configuration. Trend data for aperiodic measurements is stored in a separate database and timestamped
with the measurement time.
Trending Multiple-Value Measurements
Some measurements generate multiple values, for example invasive pressure measurements can provide
systolic, diastolic, and mean values. These values are trended as separate measurements.
4 hours @12 second resolution
24 hours @ 1 minute resolution
48 hours @ 5 minute resolution
