Entering Measurements Manually

If it is critical that the measurement labels are available at the Information Center and after transfers,
the older monitors and the Information Center must be upgraded to the appropriate software revision.
Entering Measurements Manually
You can enter values into the monitor that have been measured with other equipment or manually (for
example, manual temperatures, lab values). These values are then stored in the database, included in
trends and reports, and passed on to the Information Center and central charting systems. There is no
alarm functionality for manually entered measurements.
To enter values,
Select the Enter Values SmartKey or select Main Setup -> Enter MeasValues
1
Select the measurement you want to enter values for. The Edit <Measurement> window will
2
open.
3
If the measurement is switched off, switch it on by selecting the label.
4
Select Value and enter the value.
Select Date/Time to enter the date and time for the value. The default is always the current date
5
and time.
6
For compound labels, for example ABPs, ABPd and ABPm, select the Format field to select
whether all values are required or a single value.
Select Confirm.
7
When a manually entered value has been configured to display as a numeric on the screen, you can also
enter a new value for this measurement by selecting the numeric, then selecting Enter
MeasValues.
Manually entered measurement values are marked with a * on the display, in trends, and so forth.
Each measurement has a defined measurement interval after which a value becomes invalid (no value is
then displayed). Values can be entered up to two hours after they have been measured or up to the
measurement interval, if this is shorter.
The list of measurement labels which appears in the Manual Entry window is set in Configuration
Mode.
No values can be entered manually on the MP5 when it is connected to a host monitor.
Switching Manually Entered Measurements On and Off
To switch a manually entered measurement on or off,
Select the Enter Values SmartKey or select Main Setup -> Enter MeasValues
1
Select the measurement you want to switch on or off.
2
Select the measurement label field to switch between On and Off
3
Changing Monitor Settings
To change monitor settings such as brightness, or QRS tone volume, select the Main Setup
permanent key and then select User Interface to enter a submenu where you can change
these settings.
