3 What's New?
New Fields in the Admission Form
A Middle Name field is now available in the admission form - whether it appears is configurable. Two
additional ID fields, Lifetime Id and Encounter Id, can also be configured to appear and their names
can be customized to fit hospital requirements.
• Additional SpO
• New manual measurement mode when telemetry devices are connected via a short range radio link.
• Signal Quality Indicator displayed with the SpO
• New */**Afib yellow alarm when an atrial fibrillation waveform is detected.
• QT View window - shows current wave and baseline wave with Q and T points marked so that you
can verify that the QT algorithm detects correct Q and T points.
What's New in Release F.0?
The SSC Sepsis protocol is now available on the MP5 in the form of the screening option. If a patient
has been screened on arrival with an MP5, then transferred to Intensive Care when Sepsis is confirmed,
the current state, the settings and the log from the SSC Sepsis Protocol can be transferred from the
MP5 by connecting it to the new monitor.
QT/QTc Interval Monitoring
QT interval monitoring is used to assist in the detection of prolonged QT interval syndrome. The QT
interval is measured and the heart-rate corrected QT value, QTc, is calculated. The monitor also
provides a ΔQTc value which tracks variation in the QT interval in relation to a baseline value. High
alarm limits can be set for QTc and ΔQTc enabling alarm notification.
Manual Data Entry
Measurement values (for example lab data or manually measured temperatures) can be entered
manually into the monitor and stored in the database. They can then be used for trends, reports and
also be displayed as a numeric on screen, if required.
Horizon Trend Enhancements
The trend indicator arrow indicates how the patient trend has developed in a set time period. This
period is now configurable and can be set to 10 minutes, 5 minutes or 2 minutes. The horizon (or
baseline) can now be set to a range or to a specific value.
Connecting an MP5 to a Monitor (Companion Mode is indicated)
The MP5 monitor can be connected to one of the MP20 to MP90 monitors (then called the host
monitor) and used like an MMS. This provides monitoring continuity in transport situations allowing
measurement data and patient demographics from the MP5 to be transferred to another monitor.
When the MP5 is connected to a host monitor, no alarms will be announced on the MP5.
Pairing MP5 with another IntelliVue Monitor
The MP5 (with IIT) can be declared as a telemetry device at the Information Center and paired with
another monitor. The data from the MP5 will then be shown on the same sector on the Information
Center as that from the other monitor.
Labels - SpO
pr and SpO
po labels have been added.
