Who is this Guide for?
This book is for anyone making permanent changes to the configuration of an IntelliVue Patient
Monitor. You must understand English, be familiar with the monitor and its Instructions for Use,
know how to make changes to measurements and settings in monitoring mode, and understand the
clinical implications of any changes you make.
Before starting monitoring, check that the configuration meets your requirements, especially patient

Changing the configuration may alter the way the monitor performs when monitoring patients. Do
not change anything unless you are aware of the possible consequences, especially if you are monitoring
a patient whilst in configuration mode.
