Screen Trend Configuration Implications
ScreenTrend Time Use this setting to set the Screen Trend Time for all graphical and horizon
screen trends. Choices are: 30min, 1h, 2h, 4h, 8h, or 12h.
This is the Global screen trend time. This setting can be overridden by the Change TrendTime
configuration (see see "Configuring Screen Trends" on page 26) which lets the user set a different
ScreenTrend Time for a particular screen trend channel or a group of aligned screen trends.
HorizonArrowTime This setting determines the time period used for calculating the direction of the
Horizon Trend Indicator, which shows how the patient trend has developed in the set time period.
Choices are: 10min, 5min, or 2min.
Configuring Horizon Trend Settings
The horizon view presents trend information superimposed over a defined baseline or base range. This
helps you visualize changes in your patient's condition since the baseline/base range was set.
The position of the horizon baseline and the scale used when a certain measurement is first displayed in
horizon trend view, is defined by the settings Horizon High, Horizon Low, Scale Delta and
Unit. The defaults for Horizon High, Horizon Low, and Scale Delta are based on clinical
considerations, the default for Unit follows the measurement unit defined for the corresponding
measurement label. These default are stored invisibly in the IntelliVue patient monitor software. The user
can adapt Horizon High, Horizon Low, and Scale Delta during monitoring.
If you are not satisfied with the default settings, you can modify the defaults for up to 25 measurement

Horizon Trend Settings. A maximum of 25 labels can be added.
