As there are no alarms available on the MP5 when it is connected to a host monitor (Companion
Mode is indicated on the MP5 display), recordings made on the local recorder are annotated with
"Companion Mode" and "No Alarm Display".
A selection of up to three waveforms is recorded, marked with wave labels and wave scale information.
Wave scale information can be in the form of a calibration bar, like the 1 mV calibration bar for ECG,
or calibration steps before the waveform starts.
Maintaining Recording Strips
Recording ink sometimes fades when covered with transparent tape. Avoid covering any part of a
recording that is clinically relevant (annotation or waveforms) when taping a recording strip to a
patient record or other patient documentation.
