1 Basic Operation
Switching to a Different Screen
To switch to a different Screen, select the current Screen name in the monitor info line,
or select the Change Screen SmartKey.
Choose the new screen from the pop-up list.
When you switch from a complex to a less complex screen layout, some measurements may not be
visible but are still monitored in the background. If you switch to a more complex screen with, for
example, four invasive pressure waves but you have only two pressures connected to the monitor, the
"missing" two pressures are either left blank or the available space is filled by another measurement.
Using the Visitor Screen
If a visitor Screen is configured for your monitor, you can use it to clear the screen of all waves and
numerics but continue to monitor the patient with active alarms and trend storage at the bedside and
To activate this Screen, select the Screen name in the monitor info line to open the Screen
menu, then select the name of the Visitor Screen configured for your monitor from the list of
Select any element on the Screen to open the Screen menu and select a different Screen to show
waves and numerics again.
Changing a Screen's Content
If you do not want to change the entire screen content, but only some parts of it, you can substitute
individual waves. When you select a wave for display, its numeric is usually automatically selected
along with it. Permanently storing the change can be done only in Configuration Mode.
Select the wave segment on the monitor screen where you want the new wave to appear. This calls
up the Wave menu.
From the wave list, select the wave you want.
Profiles are predefined monitor configurations. They let you change the configuration of the whole
monitor so you can adapt it to different monitoring situations. The changes that occur when you
change a complete profile are more far reaching than those made when you change a Screen. Screens
affect only what is shown on the display. Profiles affect all monitor and measurement settings.
The settings that are defined by Profiles are grouped into three categories. Each category offers a choice
of 'settings blocks' customized for specific monitoring situations. These categories are:
• Display (screens)
– Each profile can have a choice of many different predefined screens. If you are using a second
display, each display can have its own individual screen selection. When you change the profile,
the screen selection configured for the new profile becomes active.
• Monitor Settings
– Each profile can have a choice of different predefined monitor settings. These relate to the
monitor as a whole; for example, display brightness, alarms off/paused, alarm volume, QRS tone
volume, tone modulation, prompt tone volume, wave speed, resp wave speed, pulse source.
