Interacting with the Information Center
Communicating with the Information Center
shown as follows:
When the monitor is not in radio signal range when it is powered on, it
starts in a non-networked mode. The network symbol is not shown and the
patient is not centrally monitored. If the monitor then enters radio signal
range while powered on, the monitor automatically makes a connection to
3. Combined wired and wireless network.
When a wired LAN connection is available, the patient is connected to the
network by inserting the LAN connector as described in 1. above. When
the patient is disconnected for transport, the wireless network
automatically takes over; this can take up to one minute. The patient
continues to be centrally monitored as long as the monitor remains within
radio signal range. When the patient returns, the monitor can be
reconnected to the wired network as described above and the wired
network automatically takes over again.
There are four functions of the monitor which are available at the Information
Center: silencing alarms, relearning Arrhythmia, admitting patients and
switching the monitor to standby. Depending on the configuration of the monitor
these functions can be used at either the monitor or the Information Center.

New Patient" on page 95.
With a wired network, central printers or recorders can be used by the monitor to
print reports and record strips.
With a wireless network, central recordings can be made but no central printing
