Manually-started recordings have priority over automatically-started recordings. If an
automatically-triggered alarm recording is running, and a realtime or delayed recording is manually
started, the alarm recording is stopped and the manually-requested recording is started.
More recent manually-started recordings have priority over older manually-started recordings. If a
manually-started recording is running, and another manually-started recording is triggered, then the
older recording is stopped and the more recent manually-started recording is started.
Alarm recordings are prioritized according to alarm priority. If an alarm recording triggered by a
yellow alarm is running and a new alarm recording is triggered by a red alarm, the yellow alarm
recording is stopped and the red alarm recording is started.
Sample Recording Strip
The information printed on the recording strip includes the patient name and MRN, bed number,
date and time of recording, recording speed, and recording code. Active alarm and INOP messages as
well as numerics for all currently monitored measurements are also printed.
Recording strip annotations are printed at the beginning of the recording strip and updated at regular
intervals, every 15 minutes for recordings made at speeds lower than 6.25 mm/s, and every 60 seconds
for recordings made at speeds greater or equal to 6.25 mm/s.
