How to use the Patient Monitoring

All the patient monitoring data is displayed on either the Main Screen or the ECG Screen. The Main Screen allows two graphs or trends to be displayed at a time. Below, you will find which graph or trends are available per measure. The trends can be set to display data for 30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours, 4 hours, 8 hours, 16 hours or 24 hours. The rest of the Main Screen shows real-time readings.

Non-Invasive Blood Pressure (NIBP)

Trend charts available on the Main Screen:

NIBP: Non-Invasive Blood Pressure. Measured via a blood pressure cuff. NIBP is measured in millimeters of mercury (mmHg).

If either the systolic or diastolic value is over the range of the sensor, “>300” is shown for that value.

If the NIBP is one (1) or more minutes old, a message states “XXm ago” where XX is the number of minutes since the last reading. A NIBP measurement older than 15 minutes is discarded and no longer shown.

If neither the systolic nor diastolic pressure is available, a single set of dashes (- – -) is shown and no divider line is drawn.

Pulse Oximetry (Masimo Rainbow SET® Pulse Co-Oximeter)

Pulse CO-Oximetry is a continuous and non-invasive method of measuring the levels of carboxyhemoglobin concentration (SpCO) in arterial blood. It relies on the same basic principles of pulse oximetry (spectrophotometry) to make its SpCO measurement.

Graphs available on the Main Screen:

  • Pleth (Plethysmograph): This is the amount of arterial blood in tissue changes with pulse.

Trend charts available on the Main Screen:

  • FiO2 / SpO2
  • SpO2
  • PI
  • SpCO
  • SpMet
  • SpHb
  • SpOC
  • PVI

Invasive Pressure (IP)

Graphs available on the Main Screen:

  • IP – ABP: Arterial Blood Pressure. ABP is measured in mmHg.
  • IP – CVP: Central Venous Pressure. CVP is measured in mmHg.
  • IP – ICP: Intracranial Pressure. ICP is measured in cmH2O or hPa.

Trend charts available on the Main Screen:

  • ABP
  • CVP
  • ICP

For ABP numeric, if either the systolic or diastolic value is over the range of the sensor, “>300” is shown for that value. If either the systolic or diastolic value is under the range of the sensor, “<–10″ is shown for that value.

For CVP numeric, Numeric –10 to 300 mmHg in steps of 1 is shown. If greater than 300 mmHg, shows “>300”. If less than –10 mmHg, “<–10” is shown. For an unknown value, a series of dashes (- – -) is shown.

For ICP numeric, Numeric –14 to 408 cmH2O in steps of 1 is shown. If greater than 408 cmH2O, shows “>408”. If less than –14, “<–14” is shown. For an unknown value, a series of dashes (- – -) is shown.

Temperature

When the temperature probe is attached to the patient and connected to the MOVES® SLC™, the patient’s body temperature is displayed on the Monitor Screen. The temperature can be displayed in degrees Fahrenheit from 82.4°F to 108.0°F or degrees Celsius from 28°C to 42°C. Changing the temperature display from Celsius to Fahrenheit (or vice versa) may only be done by a qualified MOVES® SLC™ service technician.

Trend charts available on the Main Screen:

  • Temp 1
  • Temp 2

Ventilation Readings

Graphs available on the Main Screen:

  • Airway
  • PCO2

Trend charts available on the Main Screen:

  • PIP: Peak Inspiratory (Airway) Pressure
  • PetCO2: Partial Pressure of End-Tidal Carbon Dioxide

Electrocardiogram

Graphs available on the Main Screen:

  • ECG – 2.2 mV
  • ECG – 3 mV
  • ECG – 6 mV
  • ECG – 12 mV

Trend charts available on the Main Screen:

  • Heart Rate (the Heart Rate can be sourced from the ECG, but also from SpO2 or ABP)

ECG Screen

The ECG Screen will display up to 12 graphs (if all 10 ECG lead wires are used). The number of leads displayed depends on which lead wires are connected. If all lead wires are connected, all 12 graphs will be shown. The dashed reference line indicates a 1 mV signal amplitude.

The only user interaction on the ECG Screen is the Pause / Resume button. Using the Jog Wheel, the user navigates to the button and presses the Wheel to toggle between Pause / Resume. If the selected button reads PAUSE when the Jog Wheel is pressed, then the ECG graphs will be frozen and can be examined more easily. Press the Jog Wheel when the selected button reads RESUME to restart normal graphing of the ECG waveform.
