There can be a gap of up to 30 seconds between the trace recovery printout, and the beginning of
the real-time trace.
Recovering Traces on an OB TraceVue/IntelliSpace
The trace recovery data stored in the monitor's backup memory can also be uploaded at high speed to
an OB TraceVue/IntelliSpace Perinatal system connected over the LAN interface (OB TraceVue
Revision E.00.00 or later, and IntelliSpace Perinatal H.0 or later).
When the OB TraceVue/IntelliSpace Perinatal system reconnects to the fetal monitor and detects that
there is trace recovery data in the monitor's backup memory that has not yet been transmitted to the
system, this data is transferred at high speed to the system. No user action is required.
The exact length of the recovered trace will vary depending on the amount of trace information, but it
will cover at least 3.5 hours of trace data with the software revision J.3, and 7 hours with the new
mainboard hardware revision A 00.18, regardless of how many parameters are being measured.
To recover traces on an OB TraceVue/IntelliSpace Perinatal system, the following applies:
The trace data in the monitor's internal memory must relate to a specific patient in the
OB TraceVue/IntelliSpace Perinatal system. In other words, there were no discharge events made
on the monitor that would change the patient context.
The patient must have an open episode. No data will be uploaded if the patient is not admitted to
OB TraceVue/IntelliSpace Perinatal. For further details see the OB TraceVue/IntelliSpace
Perinatal Instructions for Use.
Current online trace data is held back until the fast upload is complete.
Manually Recording Stored Data
If the recorder is not running, you can choose to print trace data from the monitor's memory at any
time. You can see a list of all stored traces, showing patient identification and trace period, in the
Stored Data Recording
Ensure that you admit each patient by name, including other patient identification information, and
discharge the patient when you have finished monitoring, so that you can identify which trace period
(entry in the patient list) refers to which patient.
Trace storage can be triggered by:
Discharging a patient
Powering on the monitor
Entering Service Mode
Traces are not available for periods the monitor was switched off, in Service Mode, in Standby, or if
the trace period was shorter than one minute.
window, from which you can choose one entry at a time.
