4 Configuration Settings Appendix
C.O. Configuration Implications
Method This lets you choose the C.O. method to configure the settings for each method. If a cardiac
output catheter is connected, the correct method is automatically detected from the catheter type
connected and cannot be manually changed.
If you use the Transpulmonary method, and the PPV derived from an arterial source is Enabled
(see "Configuring PPV (Pulse Pressure Variation)" on page 64), a label conflict with the PPV derived from
the continuous cardiac output measurement may be generated.
Measuring Mode This setting lets you change the C.O. measurement mode. If set to Auto, the
clinician will be able to quickly perform a series of injections without further interaction with the monitor.
After the clinician has initially started the C.O. measurement, for example by selecting the pop-up key
Start C.O., the monitor will prompt the clinician when the measurement is ready for the next
injection, and the injection can be performed. If no injection is detected within 30 seconds (Right-Heart
method) or 90 seconds (Transpulmonary method), the user is prompted again. If set to Standard, the
clinician has to select the pop-up key Start C.O. again for each new injection.
Auto-Calibration This setting is only available if Method is set to Transpulmonary. Set this
to Off if you do not want to automatically trigger a CCO calibration every time you save the C.O. value.
This results in two separate pop-up keys in the Cardiac Output Procedure window: one labeled Save
C.O., the other labeled Cal CCO. If Auto-Calibration is set to On, both functions are combined
and only one pop-up key will be available: Save C.O.&Cal CCO.
RL Shunt This setting is only available if Method is set to Transpulmonary. Set RL Shunt to
On to enable Right-Left Shunt detection. This setting is not available in the U.S.A or in clinical
environments under FDA control.
C.O. The On/Off state of the Cardiac Output measurement cannot be preconfigured. Cardiac Output
is automatically switched On when a C.O. transducer is connected to the monitor. In configuration mode,
C.O. can be manually switched On, even if no catheter is connected.
