This section lists all the settings grouped in the Monitor Settings Block. Read any information on
configuration implications at the end of the relevant tables before you make any configuration changes.
Understanding Monitor Settings
What sets monitor settings apart from measurement settings is that they are not specific to one
measurement. Monitor settings affect the general behavior of the monitor.
Alarm settings are a good example to help you understand the difference between monitor and
measurement settings: general alarm settings, such as Alarm Volume or the Alarms Off time are monitor
settings. They determine the monitor's general alarming behavior. Individual alarm limits that can be set
individually for each measurement are measurement settings. They only affect the selected measurement.
The IntelliVue patient monitor uses two categories of monitor settings: normal and unique monitor
settings. Normal monitor settings can be configured differently for different monitor settings blocks (e.g.
Monitor A, Monitor B). Unique monitor settings cannot be configured differently. They are the same in
each monitor settings block and are automatically included in all monitor settings blocks when you store
them to one block. The following table provides an overview of normal vs. unique monitor settings:
