The MOVES® SLC™ Interface

The MOVES® SLC™ interface is comprised of multiple screens:

  • The Setup Screen to view and modify the primary operational settings of MOVES® SLC™.
  • The Advanced Screen to view and modify the advanced operational settings of MOVES® SLC™.
  • The Info Screen to view a list of system information.
  • The Main Screen to display patient status and monitored values.
  • The Alarm Limit Screen for control of alarm limit values.
  • The Alarm On/Off Screen allows for alarm On/Off control.
  • The ECG Screen display up to 12 graphs.

To navigate from one screen to another, select the Screen Name at the top and rotate the Jog Wheel to display other screens. Please note that the Info Screen and the Advanced Screen are accessed through the Setup Screen, we will come back to this later in the lesson.

Setup Screen

In the Setup Screen, three System Modes can be selected. The selection of a System Mode will gray out certain settings that are not relevant to the current selection. In the example below, the System Mode “Monitor Only” is selected, therefore the Ventilator and Concentrator settings are grayed out because those settings are not required in the selected System Mode.

Warning: The system does not ventilate in Monitor Only or O2 Supplement modes. Changing the system to operate in these modes will cease ventilation.

When Ventilate System Mode is selected, because there are five (5) Vent Modes (IMV, A/C, SIMV, APRV, and PSV), certain settings will be grayed out under each. However, these settings can still be changed even though the mode they apply to is not currently selected.

When switching to O2 Supplement mode, you will first be presented with the following warning.

After selecting Yes with the Jog Wheel, the mode will be accessed.

Some setting changes will take effect immediately, but many will take effect at the next inhalation or the after the next breath of the patient. A full list of default values and the moment when the change takes effect for each setting can be found in the operator manual p.155-158.

Advanced Screen

The Advanced Screen is accessible from the Setup Screen and opens with the first option selected as shown below. Options are selected as on other screens, by navigating to an option with the Jog Wheel and the pressing the Wheel to make it active. Options in the Advanced Screen are related to the patient monitoring.

Info Screen

The Info Screen is accessed from the Setup Screen. The user navigates to the System Mode area using the Jog Wheel and then presses the Wheel to make it active. The user then navigates to the INFO… option and presses the Jog Wheel again to proceed to the Info Screen.

Main Screen

The Main Screen is used to display patient status and monitored values. It is the primary screen of MOVES® SLC™. The Main Screen is for status only. There are no functional settings to change. The available buttons are for the following:

  • Choosing which chart to view
  • Choosing the source of heart rate to view
  • Zeroing the invasive pressures channels
  • Labeling the invasive pressure channels

On the Main Screen, any value that has an active alarm associated with it is drawn in reverse color. So the PetCO2 would be displayed on a purple background instead of being displayed in purple as shown above.

For all display items, a trusted number is always shown or represented; otherwise, for values that are not possible – and therefore not trusted – dashes are displayed and the systems acts as if the data is not available. An alarm is usually generated for this untrusted number.

For all numeric or text display items, if a fault prevents data display the fault icon (X) is displayed.

“PVI” and Rainbow SET® (SpMet, SpCO, etc) items are only displayed when the appropriate Masimo sensor is present. The values are found on the left of the pleth real-time graph. The following screen capture illustrates the values obtained via two of the Masimo sensors.

The Alarm Limit Screen, the Alarm On/Off Screen, the Main Screen and the ECG Screen will be further explained in following sections.
