4 Configuration Settings Appendix
Measurement Settings
Δ
Δ
ExtrBrady Extreme bradycardia and extreme tachycardia alarms are based on the
ExtrTachy,
Δ
Δ
ECG/Pulse limit alarms. Use the
ExtrTachy and
ExtrBrady setting to define the difference
between the heart rate limit and the extreme limit. For example, if the heart rate high limit is 120 bpm and
the difference is 20 bpm then the extreme tachycardia limit is 140.
Δ
Δ
ECG and Pulse share the same alarm limits. The
ExtrTachy and
ExtrBrady settings apply to the
Δ
Δ
currently selected alarm source, either ECG or Pulse. If you change the
ExtrTachy or
ExtrBrady
Δ
Δ
setting in the ECG/Pulse Alarms menu, this will also change the
ExtrTachy or
ExtrBrady
setting in the Setup Pulse menu and Setup ECG menu and vice versa.
Tachy Clamp, Brady Clamp The Brady and Tachy clamp allows you to configure a safety
threshold for the extreme bradycardia and tachycardia alarm limits. For example, if the low heart rate limit
Δ
is 50 bpm and the
ExtrBrady setting is 20 bpm (50 bpm - 20 bpm = 30) with a Brady clamp set at
40, the resulting extreme bradycardia limit would be 40 bpm (instead of 30 bpm). If the clinician sets the
ECG alarm limit above or below the limit clamps for an individual patient, the limit clamps become the
extreme brady or extreme tachy alarm (these are red alarms). Be sure to set the clamps beyond the
configured ECG limits.
ECG and Pulse share the same alarm limits. The Tachy Clamp and Brady Clamp settings apply to
the currently selected alarm source, either ECG or Pulse. If you change the Tachy Clamp or Brady
Clamp setting in the ECG/Pulse Alarms menu, this will also change the Tachy Clamp or Brady
Clamp setting in the Setup Pulse menu and Setup ECG menu and vice versa.
Alarms Off If this setting is configured to Disabled, the user cannot switch off ECG alarms in
monitoring mode. Note that changing the Alarms Off setting in the ECG/Pulse Alarms menu, also
changes the Alarms Off setting in the Setup Pulse menu and Setup ECG menu and vice versa.
AlarmSource Sel. If you do not want the Alarm Source setting to be available in monitoring
mode, you must set AlarmSource Sel. to Disabled. Note that if you change the
AlarmSource Sel. setting in the ECG/Pulse Alarms menu, this will also change the
AlarmSource Sel. setting in the Setup Pulse menu and Setup ECG menu and vice versa.
PulseAlarms Tele This setting affects the monitor's behavior only while it is paired with a
telemetry transmitter. In paired mode, if the Tele transmitter delivers a valid ECG, the monitor
automatically deactivates the internal ECG and displays the ECG from the telemetry transmitter. With
the internal ECG deactivated, and PulseAlarms Tele configured to Enabled, the monitor
automatically falls back to the monitor's System Pulse as alarming source if a System Pulse is available.
With PulseAlarms Tele configured to Disabled, the monitor does not fall back to the System
Pulse as alarm source. In this case no ECG/Pulse alarms from the bedside monitor are active. When the
monitor ECG becomes available again, or the telemetry transmitter is unpaired, the monitor automatically
activates the internal ECG and the configured ECG/Pulse alarms are active again. Note that if you change
the PulseAlarms Tele setting in the ECG/Pulse Alarms menu, this will also change the
PulseAlarms Tele setting in the Setup Pulse menu and Setup ECG menu and vice versa.
Inop"PULSE NO AL": If set to Enabled, the INOP Pulse No Alarming is issued while a
VueLink or IntelliBridge pulse is system pulse and ECG is switched off.
