Starting Report Printouts
Most patient reports can be printed by selecting Main Setup - > Reports (or the Reports
SmartKey) and then selecting the report name in the top half of the Reports menu. Report names
are shown only for reports that have been correctly set up.
Data from the time of the print request is printed, even if the print job is delayed in the printer queue.
Your monitor can also be set up to automatically print all reports when a matching printer is available.
To set this up
Select Main Setup - > Reports
Select Auto Print Dbs.
– Always will print all reports when a matching printer is available.
– Host only will print the reports stored on the host monitor when a matching printer is
available. Reports stored in the companion database (shown in grey on the Reports Job List) must
be manually sent to the printer. See "Checking Report Status and Printing Manually" on
– Never will print no reports automatically; all reports stored in the host or companion database
must be manually sent to the printer. See "Checking Report Status and Printing Manually" on
Depending on availability, reports can be printed on printers connected to the Information Center, an
external PC-based print server or into the print database. Print jobs stored in the database are
automatically printed when a print device with a matching paper size becomes available.
Print jobs in the print database are not deleted after a patient discharge. A new patient can be admitted
and their reports are saved in addition to the previous reports. Always admit your patient so that
reports can be clearly assigned to a patient.
When the MP5 is connected to a host monitor, reports requested or stored on the MP5 can be printed
via the host monitor. Reports requested on the MP5 when connected to a host monitor will not show
any patient alarms or INOPs. In order to see alarms, reports should be requested on the host monitor.
