7 Alarms
Alarms, triggered by a vital sign that appears abnormal or by technical problems of the monitor, are indicated to the user
by visual and audible alarm indications.
WARNING

A potential hazard can exist if different alarm presets are used for the same or similar equipment in any
single area, e.g. an intensive care unit or cardiac operating room.

If your monitor is connected to the central monitoring system (CMS) or other monitors, alarms can be
displayed and controlled remotely. Remote suspension, inhibition, or silence of monitor alarms via the CMS
or other monitors may cause a potential hazard. For details, refer to the operator’s manual of the CMS and
the other monitors.
7.1 Alarm Categories
By nature, the monitor’s alarms can be classified into three categories: physiological alarms, technical alarms and prompt
messages.
1.
Physiological alarms
Physiological alarms, also called patient status alarms, are triggered by a monitored parameter value that violates
set alarm limits or an abnormal patient condition. Physiological alarm messages are displayed in the physiological
alarm area.
2.
Technical alarms
Technical alarms, also called system status alarms, are triggered by a device malfunction or a patient data distortion
due to improper operation or mechanical problems. Technical alarm messages are displayed in the technical alarm
area.
Apart from the physiological and technical alarm messages, the monitor shows some messages telling the system
status or patient status. Messages of this kind are included in the prompt message category and usually displayed
in the prompt information area. Some prompt messages that indicate arrhythmia events are displayed in the
physiological alarm area. For some measurements, their related prompt messages are displayed in their respective
parameter windows.
7-1
7.2 Alarm Levels
By severity, the monitor’s alarms can be classified into three categories: high level, medium level and low level.
High level
Medium

7.3 Alarm Indicators
When an alarm occurs, the monitor will indicate it to the user through visual or audible alarm indications.

Alarm lamp

Alarm message

Flashing numeric

Audible alarm tones
7.3.1 Alarm Lamp
If a technical alarm or physiological alarm occurs, the alarm lamp will flash. The flashing color and frequency match the
alarm level as follows:

High level alarms:
the lamp quickly flashes red.

Medium level alarms:
the lamp slowly flashes yellow.

Low level alarms:
the lamp turns yellow without flashing.
7.3.2 Alarm Message
When an alarm occurs, an alarm message will appear in the technical or physiological alarm area. For physiological
alarms, the asterisk symbols (*) before the alarm message match the alarm level as follows:

High level alarms:
***

Medium level alarms:
**

Low level alarms:
*
Additionally, the alarm message uses different background colors to match the alarm level:

High level alarms:
red

Medium level alarms:
yellow

Low level alarms:
yellow
You can view the alarm messages by selecting the physiological or technical alarm area.
7-2
7.3.3 Flashing Numeric
If an alarm triggered by an alarm limit violation occurs, the numeric of the measurement in alarm will flash every second,
and the corresponding alarm limit will also flash at the same frequency indicating the high or low alarm limit is violated.
7.3.4 Audible Alarm Tones
The alarm tone is distinct from the heart beat tone, keystroke tone and pulse tone in frequency. This monitor has three
choices of alarm tones and patterns: ISO, Mode 1 and Mode 2. For each pattern, the alarm tones identify the alarm levels
as follows:



ISO pattern:

High level alarms:
triple+double+triple+double beep.

Medium level alarms:
triple beep.

Low level alarms:
single beep.
Mode 1:

High level alarms:
high-pitched single beep.

Medium level alarms:
double beep.

Low level alarms:
low-pitched single beep.
Mode 2:

High level alarms:
high-pitched triple beep.

Medium level alarms:
double beep.

Low level alarms:
low-pitched single beep.
NOTE

When multiple alarms of different levels occur simultaneously, the monitor will select the alarm of the
highest level and give visual and audible alarm indications accordingly.
7.3.5 Alarm Status Symbols
Apart from the aforementioned alarm indicators, the monitor still uses the following symbols telling the alarm status:

indicates alarms are paused.

indicates alarm sound is silenced.

indicates the alarm sound is turned off.

indicates individual measurement alarms are turned off or the system is in alarm off status.

WARNING

Make sure that the alarm limits settings are appropriate for your patient before monitoring.

Setting alarm limits to extreme values may cause the alarm system to become ineffective.
7.5.2 Adjusting Alarm Limits Automatically
The monitor can automatically adjust alarm limits according to the measured vital signs, using the auto limits function.
When auto limits are selected, the monitor calculates safe auto limits based on the latest measured values.
To get accurate auto alarm limits, you need to collect a set of measured vital signs as a baseline. Then, in the main menu,
select [Alarm Setup >>]→[Parameters]→[Auto Limits] →[Ok]. The monitor will create new alarm limits based on the
measured values.
Before applying these automatically created alarm limits, confirm if they are appropriate for your patient in the mass
alarm setup menu. If not, you can adjust them manually. These alarm limits will remain unchanged until you select auto
limits again or adjust them manually.

The alarm latching setting for your monitor defines how the alarm indicators behave when you do not acknowledge
them. When alarms are set to non-latching, their alarm indications end when the alarm condition ends. If you switch
alarm latching on, all visual and audible alarm indications last until you acknowledge the alarms, except that the
measurement numeric and violated alarm limit stop flashing as soon as the initial alarm condition goes away.
To set alarms to latching or non-latching:
1.
Select [Main Menu]→[Maintenance >>]→[User Maintenance >>]→enter the required password.
2.
Select [Alarm Setup >>].
3.
Select [Latching Alarms] and toggle between [High only], [Hi&Med], [All] and [Off]. If you select [High only], only
high priority alarms are latched; if you select [Hi&Med], both high priority alarms and medium priority alarms are
latched; if you select [All], all alarms are latched; if you select [Off], the alarm latching is turned off.
NOTE

Changing of alarm priority may affect the latching status of corresponding alarms. Please determine if you
need to reset the latching status for the specific alarm when you have changed its alarm priority.
7.10 Silencing Technical Alarms
For some technical alarms, their alarm lamp flashing and alarm tones are cleared and the alarm messages change to
prompt messages after the
hardkey is pressed. After the monitor restores the normal status, the monitor can give
alarm indications correctly when these alarms are triggered again.
For some technical alarms, all their alarm indications are cleared after the
hardkey is pressed. After the monitor
restores the normal status, the monitor can give alarm indications correctly when these alarms are triggered again.
For some other technical alarms, their alarm lamp flashing and alarm tones are cleared and “√” appears before the alarm
message after the
hardkey is pressed. After the monitor restores the normal status, the monitor can give alarm
indications correctly when these alarms are triggered again.
7-10
7.11 Testing Alarms
When the monitor starts up, a self-test is performed. In this case the alarm lamp is lit in yellow and red respectively, and
the system gives a beep. This indicates that the visible and audible alarm indicators are functioning correctly.
For further testing of individual measurement alarms, perform the measurement on yourself (for example SpO2 or CO2)
or use a simulator. Adjust alarm limits and check that appropriate alarm behavior is observed.
7.12 When an Alarm Occurs
When an alarm occurs, observe the following steps and take proper actions:
1.
Check the patient’s condition.
2.
Confirm the alarming parameter or alarm category.
3.
Identify the source of the alarm.
4.
Take proper action to eliminate the alarm condition.
5.
Make sure the alarm condition is corrected.
For troubleshooting specific alarms, see appendix Alarm Messages.
7.13 Using Care Group Alarms
7.13.1 Care Group Auto Alarms
When a Care Group is set up on your monitor, a flashing symbol will appear beside the QuickKeys area if any monitor in
your Care Group, which is not currently viewed by your monitor, is alarming. The alarm symbol is shown as below.
The background colors of the alarm symbols indicate alarm levels, and are the same as those of the corresponding alarm
messages. If multiple alarms are active in the Care Group, the background color is the same as that of the highest-level
alarm message. For more information about the alarm message and background color, see 7.3.2 Alarm Message.
When a monitor in the Care Group is disconnected, the flashing symbol is shown as below.
The department and bed label of the alarming monitor appear on the symbol. You can enter the [View Other Patient]
window by pressing this symbol.

8 Monitoring ECG
8.1 Introduction
The electrocardiogram (ECG) measures the electrical activity of the heart and displays it on the monitor as a waveform
and a numeric. This section also tells you about ST monitoring and arrhythmia monitoring.
8.2 Safety
WARNING

Use only ECG electrodes and cables specified by the manufacturer.

When connecting electrodes and/or patient cables, make sure that the connectors never come into contact
with other conductive parts, or with earth. In particular, make sure that all of the ECG electrodes are
attached to the patient, to prevent them from contacting conductive parts or earth.

Periodically inspect the electrode application site to ensure skin quality. If the skin quality changes, replace
the electrodes or change the application site.

Use defibrillator-proof ECG cables during defibrillation.

Do not touch the patient, or table, or instruments during defibrillation.
NOTE

After defibrillation, the screen display recovers within 10 seconds if the correct electrodes are used and
applied in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions for use.

Interference from a non-grounded instrument near the patient and electrosurgery interference can cause
problems with the waveform.
8.3 Preparing to Monitor ECG
8.3.1 Preparing the Patient and Placing the Electrodes
1.
Skin preparation
The quality of ECG waveform displayed on the monitor is a direct result of the quality of the electrical signal
received at the crocodile clip. Proper skin preparation is necessary for good signal quality at the crocodile clip. A
good signal at the crocodile clip provides the monitor with valid information for processing the ECG data. To
ensure enough electrolyte material on the skin of patients, you need to moisten the lead sites with 70% isopropyl
alcohol. This will usually be sufficient for ECG monitoring for a short time (30 to 60 minutes).
2.
Attach the ECG leadwires to the crocodile clips prior to placement.
3.
Place the crocodile clips to the patient in accordance with 8.3.3 ECG Lead Placements.
4.
Connect the ECG leadwires to the patient cable.
5.
Make sure the monitor is turned on and is ready for monitoring.
8-1
8.3.2 Choosing AHA or IEC Lead Placement
1.
Select the ECG parameter window or waveform area to enter the [ECG Setup] menu.
2.
Select [Others]→[Lead Set] and then select [3-lead], [5-lead], or [Auto] according to the applied electrodes.
3.
Select [Main Menu]→[Maintenance >>]→[User Maintenance >>]→enter the required password.
4.
Select [Others >>]→[ECG Standard] and then select [AHA] or [IEC] according to the standard that is applied for
your hospital.
8.3.3 ECG Lead Placements

Lead Placement for Surgical Patients
The surgical site should be taken into consideration when placing electrodes on a surgical patient. e.g. for open-chest
surgery, the chest electrodes can be placed on the lateral chest or back. To reduce artifacts and interference from
electrosurgical units, you can place the limb electrodes close to the shoulders and lower abdomen and the chest
electrodes on the left side of the mid-chest. Do not place the electrodes on the upper arm. Otherwise, the ECG
waveform will be very small.
8-3
WARNING

When using electrosurgical units (ESU), patient leads should be placed in a position that is equidistant from
the Electrosurgery electrotome and the grounding plate to avoid burns to the patient. Never entangle the
ESU cable and the ECG cable together.

When using electrosurgical units (ESU), never place ECG electrodes near to the grounding plate of the ESU,
as this can cause a lot of interference on the ECG signal.
8.3.4 Checking Paced Status
It is important to set the paced status correctly when you start monitoring ECG. The paced symbol
is displayed in
the ECG waveform area when the [Paced] status is set to [Yes]. The pace pulse markers “|” are shown on the ECG wave
when the patient has a paced signal. If [Paced] is set to [No] or the patient’s paced status is not selected, the symbol
will be shown in the ECG waveform area.
To change the paced status, you can select either:

the patient information area, or

[Main Menu]→[Patient Setup]→[Patient Demographics], or,

the ECG parameter window or waveform area→[Others >>], and then, select [Paced] from the popup menu and
toggle between [Yes] and [No].
If you do not set the paced status, the monitor issues a prompt tone when pace pulse is detected. At the same time, the
paced symbol flashes and the message [Please confirm the pace of patient] appears in the ECG waveform area. Then,
please check and set the paced status of the patient.
Warning

For paced patients, you must set [Paced] to [Yes]. If it is incorrectly set to [No], the monitor could mistake a
pace pulse for a QRS and fail to alarm when the ECG signal is too weak. Do not rely entirely on rate meter
alarms when monitoring patients with pacemakers. Always keep these patients under close surveillance.

For non-paced patients, you must set [Paced] to [No].

The auto pacer recognition function is not applicable to pediatric and neonatal patients.

8.5 Changing ECG Settings
8.5.1 Accessing ECG Menus
By selecting the ECG parameter window or waveform area, you can access the [ECG Setup] menu.
8.5.2 Choosing the Alarm Source
In most cases the HR and PR numerics are identical. In order to avoid simultaneous alarms on HR and PR, the monitor
uses either HR or PR as its active alarm source. To change the alarm source, select [Alm Source] in the [ECG Setup] menu
and then select either:

[HR]: if you want the HR to be the alarm source for HR/PR.

[PR]: if you want the PR to be the alarm source for HR/PR.
8-5

[Auto]: If the [Alm Source] is set to [Auto], the monitor will use the heart rate from the ECG measurements as the
alarm source whenever a valid heart rate is available. If the heart rate becomes unavailable, for example the ECG
module is turned off or becomes disconnected, the monitor will automatically switch to PR as the alarm source.
8.5.3 Setting the ECG Lead Set
You can set the [Lead Set] by selecting [ECG Setup]→[Others>>]. You can set the [Lead Set] as [Auto] if the auto lead
detection function is available.
8.5.4 Choosing an ECG Display Screen
When monitoring with a 5-lead set, you can select the [Screens] Quickkey. In the [Choose Screen] window, choose the
screen type as:

[Normal Screen]: The ECG waveform area shows 2 ECG waveforms.

[ECG 7-Lead Full-Screen]: The whole waveform area shows 7 ECG waveforms only.

[ECG 7-Lead Half-Screen]: The upper half part of the whole waveform area displays 7 ECG waveforms.
When the screen type is set to [Normal Screen], cascaded ECG waveforms can be displayed. To cascade ECG waveforms:
1.
Select the [Screens] Quickkey→[Screen Setup].
2.
Select [ECG1 Casc.] in the second row. A cascaded waveform is displayed in two waveform positions.
8.5.5 Changing the ECG Filter Settings
The ECG filter setting defines how ECG waves are smoothed. To change the filter setting, select [Filter] from [ECG Setup]
and then select the appropriate setting.

[Monitor]: Use under normal measurement conditions.

[Diagnostic]: Use when diagnostic quality is required. The unfiltered ECG wave is displayed so that changes such as
R-wave notching or discrete elevation or depression of the ST segment are visible.

[Surgery]: Use when the signal is distorted by high frequency or low frequency interference. High frequency
interference usually results in large amplitude spikes making the ECG signal look irregular. Low frequency
interference usually leads to wandering or rough baseline. In the operating room, the surgery filter reduces artifacts
and interference from electrosurgical units. Under normal measurement conditions, selecting [Surgery] may
suppress the QRS complexes too much and then interfere with ECG analysis.

[ST]: Use when ST monitoring is applied.
Warning

The [Diagnostic] filter is recommended when monitoring a patient in an environment with slight
interference only.
8-6
8.5.6 Setting the Notch Filter
The notch filter removes the line frequency interference. Only when [Filter] is set to [Diagnostic], the [Notch Filter] is
adjustable.The notch filter removes the line frequency interference. When [Filter] is not set to [Diagnostic], the notch
filter always stays on. When [Filter] is set to [Diagnostic], you can switch the notch filter on or off as required.
1.
Select the ECG parameter window or waveform area to enter its setup menu. Then select [Others >>].
2.
Set [Notch Filter] to

[Strong] when there is strong interference (such as spikes) with the waveform.

[Weak] when there is weak interference with the waveform.

[Off] to turn the notch filter off.
Set notch frequency according to the electric power frequency of your country. Follow this procedure:
1.
When [Notch Filter] is set on, select [Main Menu]→[Maintenance >>]→[User Maintenance >>]→enter the
required password.
2.
Select [Others >>]→[Notch Freq.] and then select [50Hz] or [60Hz] according to the power line frequency.
8.5.7 Changing the Pacer Reject Settings
Select [ECG Setup]→[Others>>]→[Pacer Reject], and toggle between [On] and [Off].
When [Paced] is set to [Yes]:

When [Pacer Reject] is switched on, the pace pulses are not counted as extra QRS complexes.

The pace pulse marks “|” are shown on the ECG wave when pace pulses are detected.
When [Paced] is set to [No], the pace markers are not shown on the ECG wave, and the options of [Pacer Reject] are
invalid.
8.5.8 Changing ECG Wave Settings
In the [ECG Setup] menu:

You can select [ECG], [ECG1], or [ECG2] to select a lead to view. The waveform of the selected lead should have the
following characteristics:
 The QRS should be either completely above or below the baseline and it should not be biphasic.
 The QRS should be tall and narrow.
 The P-waves and T-waves should be less than 0.2mV.

If the wave is too small or clipped, you can change its size by selecting an appropriate [Gain] setting. If you select
[Auto] from [Gain], the monitor will automatically adjust the size of the ECG waves. In normal screen, only the
selected ECG wave’s size is adjusted. In other screens, all ECG wave sizes are adjusted simultaneously.

You can change the wave sweep speed by selecting [Sweep] and then selecting the appropriate setting.
8-7
8.5.9 Enabling Smart Lead Off
When the smart lead off function is set on and there is a “lead off” in the lead that has an ECG waveform in filter mode
and notch status, if another lead is available, this available lead automatically becomes that lead. The system will
re-calculate HR and analyze and detect arrhythmia. When the “lead off” condition is corrected, the leads are
automatically switched back.
To switch on/off the smart lead off function, select [Others >>] from the [ECG Setup] menu; select [Smart Lead Off] and
toggle between [On] and [Off] from the popup menu.
8.5.10 Setting the Alarm Level for ECG Lead Off Alarms
Select [Alarm Setup >>] from the [User Maintenance] menu. You can set [ECGLeadOff Lev.] from the popup menu.
8.5.11 Adjusting QRS Volume
QRS sounds are produced based on the alarm source. To adjust the QRS volume, select [Others >>] from the [ECG Setup]
menu; select [QRS Volume] from the popup menu and select the appropriate setting. When a valid SpO2 measured
value is available, the system will adjust the pitch tone of QRS sound based on the SpO2 value.
8.5.12 About the Defibrillator Synchronization
If a defibrillator is connected, a defibrillator synchronization pulse (100 ms, +5V) is outputted through the
Multifunctional Connector every time the monitor detects an R-wave.
WARNING

Improper use of a defibrillator may cause injury to the patient. The user should determine whether to
perform defibrillation or not according to the patient’s condition.

Before defibrillation, the user must ensure both defibrillator and monitor have passed the system test and
can be safely used jointly.

Before defibrillation, make sure that the [Filter] is set to [Diagnostic].

After defibrillation is finished, select the filter mode as required.
8.6 About ST Monitoring

ST segment analysis calculates ST segment elevations and depressions for individual leads and then displays them
as numerics in the ST1 and ST2 areas.

A positive value indicates ST segment elevation; a negative value indicates ST segment depression.

Measurement unit of the ST segment: mV or mm. You can set the unit in the [Unit Setup] menu from the [User
Maintenance] menu.

Measurement range of the ST segment: -2.0 mV to +2.0 mV.
8-8
WARNING

The ST algorithm has been tested for accuracy of the ST segment data. The significance of the ST segment
changes need to be determined by a clinician.
8.6.1 Switching ST On and Off
To switch ST monitoring on or off:
1.
In the [ECG Setup] menu, select [ST Analysis >>].
2.
Select [ST Analysis] to toggle between [On] and [Off].
Reliable ST monitoring can hardly be ensured if:

You are unable to get a lead that is not noisy.

Arrhythmias such as atrial fib/flutter cause irregular baseline.

The patient is continuously ventricularly paced.

The patient has left bundle branch block.
In these cases, you may consider switching ST monitoring off.
8.6.2 Changing ST Filter Settings
ST segment analysis can be carried out only when the filter mode is set to [Diagnostic] or [ST]. When ST segment
analysis is switched on, [Filter] will automatically switch to [ST] if it is not [Diagnostic] or [ST]. When ST segment analysis
is switched off, the filter mode automatically switches to the previous manual setting.
However, if you switch [Filter] to [Monitor] or [Surgery], ST segment analysis will turn off automatically. In case that you
change [Monitor] or [Surgery] to [Diagnostic] or [ST], ST segment analysis keeps off, you can turn it on manually.
NOTE

When the filter mode is switched to [Diagnostic], the notch filter automatically switches to [Off]. In this case,
you can still set the notch filter to [On] manually.

When the filter mode is [Monitor], [Surgery] or [ST], the notch filter is fixed to [On], and can not be changed.
8.6.3 Understanding the ST Display
8.6.3.1 ST Segment
ST segment shows a QRS complex segment for each measured ST lead. The current ST segment is drawn in the same
color as the ECG wave, usually green, superimposed over the stored reference segment, drawn in a different color. The
information is updated once every ten seconds.
To display the ST segment on normal screen:
1.
Enter the [ST Analysis] menu. Set [ST Analysis] to [On].

the flattest part of the baseline (between the P and Q waves).

The J-point position is given relative to the R-wave peak and helps in locating the ST-point. Position the J-point
at the end of the QRS complex and the beginning of the ST segment.

The ST-point is positioned a fixed distance from the J-point. Move the J-point to position the ST-point at the
midpoint of the ST segment. Position the ST-point relative to the J-point at either [J+60/80ms], [J+40ms],
[J+60ms] or [J+80ms]. When [J+60/80ms] is selected, the ST-point will be positioned 80 ms (heart rate 120
bpm or less) or 60 ms (heart rate more than 120 bpm) from the J-point.

8.7 About Arrhythmia Monitoring
Arrhythmia analysis provides information about your patient’s condition, including heart rate, PVC rate, rhythm and
ectopics.
WARNING

The arrhythmia analysis program is intended to detect ventricular arrhythmias. It is not designed to detect
atrial or supraventricular arrhythmias. It may incorrectly identify the presence or absence of an arrhythmia.
Therefore, a physician must analyze the arrhythmia information with other clinical findings.

CAUTION

Set [Extended Arrh.] to [Disable] when the monitor is connected to the Central Monitoring System of version
prior to 06.01.00. Failure to do so may cause the Central Monitoring System to be unable to display
extended arrhythmia related alarms normally when extended arrhythmia occurs.
8.7.5 Reviewing Arrhythmia Events
Please refer to the Review chapter.
8.8 ECG Relearning
8.8.1 Initiating an ECG Relearning Manually
During ECG monitoring, you may need to initiate an ECG relearning when the patient’s ECG template changes
dramatically. A change in the ECG template could result in:

incorrect arrhythmia alarms

loss of ST measurement, and/or

inaccurate heart rate
ECG relearning allows the monitor to learn the new ECG template so as to correct arrhythmia alarms and HR value, and
restore ST measurements. To initiate relearning manually, select the ECG parameter window or waveform area→
[Relearn]. When the monitor is learning, the message [ECG Learning] is displayed in the technical alarm area.
CAUTION

Take care to initiate ECG relearning only during periods of normal rhythm and when the ECG signal is
relatively noise-free. If ECG learning takes place during ventricular rhythm, the ectopics may be incorrectly
learned as the normal QRS complex. This may result in missed detection of subsequent events of V-Tach and
V-Fib.
8.8.2 Automatic ECG Relearning
ECG relearning is initiated automatically whenever:

The ECG lead or lead label is changed

The ECG lead is re-connected

A new patient is admitted

After ECG calibration is completed and the ECG module switches to normal measurement mode by selecting [Stop
Calibrating ECG]

A switch happens between the options of screen type during 5-lead ECG monitoring.

The paced status of the patient is changed.

9 Monitoring Respiration (Resp)
9.1 Introduction
Impedance respiration is measured across the thorax. When the patient is breathing or ventilated, the volume of air
changes in the lungs, resulting in impedance changes between the electrodes. Respiration rate (RR) is calculated from
these impedance changes, and a respiration waveform appears on the monitor screen.
9.2 Safety Information
Warning

When monitoring the patient’s respiration, do not use ESU-proof ECG cables.

If you do not set the detection level for the respiration correctly in manual detection mode, it may not be
possible for the monitor to detect apnea. If you set the detection level too low, the monitor is more likely to
detect cardiac activity, and to falsely interpret cardiac activity as respiratory activity in the case of apnea.

The respiration measurement does not recognize the cause of apneas. It only indicates an alarm if no breath
is detected when a pre-adjusted time has elapsed since the last detected breath. Therefore, it cannot be
used for diagnostic purpose.

If operating under conditions according to the EMC Standard EN 60601-1-2 (Radiated Immunity 3V/m), field
strengths above 1V/m may cause erroneous measurements at various frequencies. Therefore it is
recommended to avoid the use of electrically radiating equipment in close proximity to the respiration
measurement unit.
9.3 Understanding the Resp Display
Gain

RR source
By selecting the waveform area or parameter area, you can enter the [Resp Waveform] menu. By selecting the Resp
parameter window, you can enter the [Resp Setup] menu.
NOTE

Respiration monitoring is not for use on patients who are very active, as this will cause false alarms.
9-1
9.4 Placing Resp Electrodes
Since the same leads are used for ECG and respiration monitoring, the lead placement is very important. Some patients,
due to their clinical condition, expand their chest laterally, causing a negative intrathoracic pressure. In these cases it is
better to place the two crocodile clips used for respiration monitoring laterally in the right axillary and left lateral chest
areas, at the maximum point of the breathing movement, to optimize the respiratory waveform.
NOTE

Please select the ECG cable with no resistance for RESP monitoring.

To optimize the respiration waveform, place the RA and LA electrodes horizontally when monitoring
respiration with ECG Lead I; place the RA and LL electrodes diagonally when monitoring respiration with
ECG Lead II.

Place the electrodes to try to avoid crossing the liver area and the ventricles of the heart with the electrodes
line.
Lead placement (5-lead)
9.4.1 Optimizing Lead Placement for Resp
If you want to measure Resp and you are already measuring ECG, you may need to optimize the placement of the two
electrodes between which Resp will be measured. Repositioning ECG electrodes from standard positions results in
changes in the ECG waveform and may influence ST and arrhythmia interpretation.
9.4.2 Cardiac Overlay
Cardiac activity that affects the Resp waveform is called cardiac overlay. It happens when the Resp electrodes pick up
impedance changes caused by the rhythmic blood flow. Correct electrodes placement can help to reduce cardiac
overlay: avoid the liver area and the ventricles of the heart in the line between the respiratory electrodes.
9.4.3 Abdominal Breathing
Some patients with restricted movement breathe mainly abdominally. In these cases, you may need to place the left leg
electrode on the left abdomen at the point of maximum abdominal expansion to optimise the respiratory wave.
9-2
9.4.4 Lateral Chest Expansion
In clinical applications, some patients expand their chests laterally, causing a negative intrathoracic pressure. In these
cases, it is better to place the two respiration electrodes in the right midaxillary and the left lateral chest areas at the
patient’s maximum point of the breathing movement to optimize the respiratory waveform.
9.5 Choosing the Respiration Lead
In the [Resp Setup] menu, set [Resp Lead] to [I], [II] or [Auto].
9.6 Changing the Apnea Alarm Delay
The apnea alarm is a high-level alarm used to detect apneas. You can set the apnea alarm delay time after which the
monitor alarms if the patient stops breathing. In the [Resp Setup] menu, select [Apnea Delay] and then select the
appropriate setting. The [Apnea Delay] of Resp and CO2 module keeps consistent with each other.
9.7 Changing Resp Detection Mode
In the [Resp Setup] menu, select [Detection Mode] and toggle between [Auto] and [Manual].

In auto detection mode, the monitor adjusts the detection level automatically, depending on the wave height and
the presence of cardiac artifact. Note that in auto detection mode, the detection level (a dotted line) is not
displayed on the waveform.
Use auto detection mode for situations where:


The respiration rate is not close to the heart rate.

Breathing is spontaneous, with or without continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP).

Patients are ventilated, except patients with intermittent mandatory ventilation (IMV).
In manual detection mode, you adjust the dotted detection level line to the desired level by selecting [Upper Line]
or [Lower Line] and then selecting
or
beside them. Once set, the detection level will not adapt
automatically to different respiration depths. It is important to remember that if the depth of breathing changes,
you may need to change the detection level.
Use manual detection mode for situations where:

The respiration rate and the heart rate are close.

Patients have intermittent mandatory ventilation.

Respiration is weak. Try repositioning the electrodes to improve the signal.
In Auto Detection Mode, if you are monitoring Resp and ECG is switched off, the monitor cannot compare the ECG and
Resp rates to detect cardiac overlay. The respiration detection level is automatically set higher to prevent the detection
of cardiac overlay as respiration.
In Manual Detection Mode, cardiac overlay can in certain situations trigger the respiration counter. This may lead to a
false indication of a high respiration or an undetected apnea condition. If you suspect that cardiac overlay is being
registered as breathing activity, raise the detection level above the zone of cardiac overlay. If the Resp wave is so small
that raising the detection level is not possible, you may need to optimize the electrode placement as described in the
section "Lateral Chest Expansion".
9-3
9.8 Changing Resp Wave Settings
WARNING

When monitoring in manual detection mode, make sure to check the respiration detection level after you
have increased or decreased the size of the respiration wave.
In the [Resp Setup] menu, you can:

Select [Gain] and then select an appropriate setting. The bigger the gain is, the larger the wave amplitude is.

Select [Sweep] and then select an appropriate setting. The faster the wave sweeps, the wider the wave is.
9.9 Setting RR Source
To set RR source:
1.
Enter the [Resp Setup] menu.
2.
Select [RR Source] and then select a source or [Auto] from the dropdown list.
The dropdown list displays the currently available RR source. When you select [Auto], the system will automatically
select the RR source according to the priority. When the current RR source does not have valid measurement, the system
will automatically switch the [RR Source] to [Auto]. RR source switches back to the valid source if you press the
silence hardkey on the monitor’s front during an apnea alarm.
The priority of RR source is (from high to low): CO2 measurement and impedance respiration measurement.The [RR
Source] settings of Resp and CO2, are linked.
The RR source options and description are shown in the table below.

parameter.
9.11 Switching Resp Measurement On/Off
To switch Resp measurement on, select [Imped. Resp Measure. ON] from the [Resp Setup] menu. To switch Resp
measurement off, select [Imped. Resp Measure. OFF] from the [Resp Setup] menu and then select [Yes] from the
popup dialog box. A line is displayed in the waveform area and no numeric but the [Measurement OFF] message is
displayed in the parameter area.

10 Monitoring PR
10.1 Introduction
The pulse numeric counts the arterial pulsations that result from the mechanical activity of the heart. You can display a
pulse from any measured SpO2 or any arterial pressure (see the IBP section). The displayed pulse numeric is color-coded
to match its source.

1.
PR Source
2.
PR: detected beats per minute.
10.2 Setting the PR Source
The current pulse source is displayed in the PR parameter area. The pulse rate chosen as pulse source:

is monitored as system pulse and generates alarms when you select PR as the active alarm source;

is stored in the monitor’s database and reviewed in the graphic/tabular trends; in trend graphs, as the PR curve is in
the same color with the PR source , it is unlikely to distinguish the PR source ;

is sent via the network to the central monitoring system, if available.
To set which pulse rate as PR source:
1.
Enter the [SpO2 Setup] menu.
2.
Select [PR Source] and then select a label or [Auto] from the popup menu.
The popup menu displays the currently available PR sources from top to bottom by priority. When you select [Auto], the
system will automatically select the first option as the PR source from the popup menu. When the current PR source is
unavailable, the system will automatically switch [PR Source] to [Auto]. When you select [IBP], the system will
automatically select the first pressure label as the PR source from the popup menu.
10-1
10.3 Selecting the Active Alarm Source
In most cases the HR and pulse numerics are identical. In order to avoid simultaneous alarms on HR and Pulse, the
monitor uses either HR or Pulse as its active alarm source. To change the alarm source, select [Alm Source] in the [ECG
Setup] or [SpO2 Setup] menu and then select either:

[HR]: The monitor will use the HR as the alarm source for HR/pulse.

[PR]: The monitor will use the PR as the alarm source for HR/pulse.

[Auto]: If the [Alm Source] is set to [Auto], the monitor will use the heart rate from the ECG measurement as the
alarm source whenever the ECG measurement is switched on and a valid heart rate is available. If the heart rate
becomes unavailable, for example if leads become disconnected, and a pulse source is switched on and available,
the monitor will automatically switch to Pulse as the alarm source. When the Leads Off condition is corrected, the
monitor will automatically switch back to the heart rate as the alarm source.
10.4 QRS Tone
When PR is used as the alarm source, the PR source will be used as a source for the QRS tone. You can change the QRS
volume by adjusting [Beat Vol] in the [SpO2 Setup] menu. When a valid SpO2 value exists, the system will adjust the
pitch tone of QRS volume according to the SpO2 value.
10-2
11 Monitoring SpO
2
11.1 Introduction
SpO2 monitoring is a non-invasive technique used to measure the amount of oxygenated hemoglobin and pulse rate by
measuring the absorption of selected wavelengths of light. The light generated in the probe passes through the tissue
and is converted into electrical signals by the photodetector in the probe. The SpO2 module processes the electrical
signal and displays a waveform and digital values for SpO2 and pulse rate.
This device is calibrated to display functional oxygen saturation. It provides four measurements:
5
2
1
3
4
1.
Pleth waveform (Pleth): visual indication of patient’s pulse. The waveform is not normalized.
2.
Oxygen saturation of arterial blood (SpO2): percentage of oxygenated hemoglobin in relation to the sum of
oxyhemoglobin and deoxyhemoglobin.
3.
Perfusion index (PI): gives the numerical value for the pulsatile portion of the measured signal caused by arterial
pulsation. PI is an indicator of the pulsatile strength. You can also use it to assess the quality of SpO2 measurement.
Above 1 is optimal, between 0.3 and 1 is acceptable. Below 0.3 indicates low perfusion; reposition the SpO2 sensor
or find a better site. If low perfusion persists, choose another method to measure oxygen saturation if possible.
PI is available for the Mindray SpO2 module or the Masimo SpO2 module.
4.
Perfusion indicator: the pulsatile portion of the measured signal caused by arterial pulsation.
5.
Pulse rate (derived from pleth wave): detected pulsations per minute.
11-1
11.2 Safety
WARNING

Use only SpO2 sensors specified in this manual. Follow the SpO2 sensor’s instructions for use and adhere to
all warnings and cautions.

When a trend toward patient deoxygenation is indicated, blood samples should be analyzed by a laboratory
co-oximeter to completely understand the patient’s condition.

Do not use SpO2 sensors during magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Induced current could potentially cause
burns. The sensor may affect the MRI image, and the MRI unit may affect the accuracy of the oximetry
measurements.

Prolonged continuous monitoring may increase the risk of undesirable changes in skin characteristics, such
as irritation, reddening, blistering or burns. Inspect the sensor site every two hours and move the sensor if
the skin quality changes. Change the application site every four hours. For patients with poor peripheral
blood circulation or sensitive skin, inspect the sensor site more frequently.
11.3 Identifying SpO2 Modules
To identify which SpO2 module is incorporated into your monitor, see the color of the SpO2 connector and the company
logo located at the monitor. The color of the cable connector matches the company as shown below:

Mindray SpO2 module: a blue connector without logo.

Masimo SpO2 module: a purple connector with a logo of Masimo SET.

Nellcor SpO2 module: a grey connector with a logo of Nellcor.
The connectors for these three SpO2 sensors are mutually exclusive.
NOTE

The Mindray SpO2 module is not available in North America. The Masimo SpO2 module is available in North
America only.
11-2
11.4 Applying the Sensor
1.
Select an appropriate sensor according to the module type, patient category and weight.
2.
Remove colored nail polish from the application site.
3.
Apply the sensor to the patient.
4.
Select an appropriate adapter cable according to the connector type and plug this cable into the SpO2 connector.
5.
Connect the sensor cable to the adapter cable.
Tongue Sensor Placement
You can easily place the tongue sensor as shown below.
NOTE

Be sure that the sensor cable is positioned along the side of the animal’s face and body to avoid
entanglement with the animal.
11.5 Changing SpO2 Settings
11.5.1 Accessing SpO2 Menus
By selecting the SpO2 parameter window or waveform area, you can access the [SpO2 Setup] menu.
11.5.2 Adjusting the Desat Alarm
The desat alarm is a high level alarm notifying you of potentially life threatening drops in oxygen saturation. Select
[Alarm Setup >>] from the [SpO2 Setup] menu. From the popup menu, you can set low alarm limit, alarm switch, and
alarm recording for [Desat]. When the SpO2 value is below the desat alarm limit and the desat alarm switch is set on, the
message [SpO2 Desat] is displayed.
11-3
11.5.3 Setting SpO2 Sensitivity
For the Masimo SpO2 module, you can set [Sensitivity] to [Normal] or [Maximum] in the [SpO2 Setup] menu. When the
[Sensitivity] is set to [Maximum], the monitor is more sensitive to minor signals. When monitoring critically ill patients
whose pulsations are very weak, it is strongly recommended that the sensitivity is set to [Maximum]. When monitoring
neonatal or non-critically ill patients who tend to move a lot, noise or invalid signals may be caused. In this case, it is
recommended that the sensitivity is set to [Normal] so that the interference caused by motion can be filtered and
therefore the measurement stability can be ensured.
11.5.4 Changing Averaging Time
The SpO2 value displayed on the monitor screen is the average of data collected within a specific time. The shorter the
averaging time is, the quicker the monitor responds to changes in the patient’s oxygen saturation level. Conversely, the
longer the averaging time is, the slower the monitor responds to changes in the patient’s oxygen saturation level, but
the measurement accuracy will be improved. For critically ill patients, selecting a shorter averaging time will help in
understanding the patient’s state.
To set the averaging time:

For the Mindray SpO2 module, select [Sensitivity] in the [SpO2 Setup] menu and then toggle between [High],
[Med] and [Low], which respectively correspond to 7 s, 9 s and 11 s.

For the Masimo SpO2 module, select [Averaging] in the [SpO2 Setup] menu and then toggle between [2-4 s], [4-6
s], [8 s], [10 s], [12 s], [14 s] and [16 s].
11.5.5 Monitoring SpO2 and NIBP Simultaneously
When monitoring SpO2 and NIBP on the same limb simultaneously, you can switch [NIBP Simul] on in the [SpO2 Setup]
menu to lock the SpO2 alarm status until the NIBP measurement ends. If you switch [NIBP Simul] off, low perfusion
caused by NIBP measurement may lead to inaccurate SpO2 readings and therefore cause false physiological alarms.
11.5.6 Sat-Seconds Alarm Management
With traditional alarm management, high and low alarm limits are set for monitoring oxygen saturation. During
monitoring, as soon as an alarm limit is violated, an audible alarm immediately sounds. When the patient % SpO2
fluctuates near an alarm limit, the alarm sounds each time the limit is violated. Such frequent alarms can be distracting.
Nellcor’s Sat-Seconds alarm management technique is used to reduce these nuisance alarms.
The Sat-Seconds feature is available with the Nellcor SpO2 module to decrease the likelihood of false alarms caused by
motion artifacts. To set the Sat-Seconds limit, select [Sat-Seconds] in the [SpO2 Setup] menu and then select the
appropriate setting.
With Sat-Seconds alarm management, high and low alarm limits are set in the same way as traditional alarm
management. A Sat-Seconds limit is also set. The Sat-Seconds limit controls the amount of time that SpO2 saturation
may be outside the set limits before an alarm sounds. The method of calculation is as follows: the number of percentage
points that the SpO2 saturation falls outside the alarm limit is multiplied by the number of seconds that it remains
outside the limit. This can be stated as the equation:
11-4
Sat-Seconds= Points × Seconds
Only when the Sat-Seconds limit is reached, the monitor gives a Sat-Seconds alarm. For example, the figure below
demonstrates the alarm response time with a Sat-Seconds limit set at 50 and a low SpO2 limit set at 90%. In this example,
the patient % SpO2 drops to 88% (2 points) and remains there for 2 seconds. Then it drops to 86% (4 points) for 3 seconds,
and then to 84% (6 points) for 6 seconds. The resulting Sat-Seconds are:
% SpO2
Seconds
Sat-Seconds
2×
2=
4
4×
3=
12
6×
6=

Total Sat-Seconds=

After approximately 10.9 seconds, a Sat-Second alarm would sound, because the limit of 50 Sat-Seconds would have
been exceeded.
SpO2%
Seconds
Saturation levels may fluctuate rather than remaining steady for a period of several seconds. Often, the patient % SpO2
may fluctuate above and below an alarm limit, re-entering the non-alarm range several times. During such fluctuation,
the monitor integrates the number of % SpO2 points, both positive and negative, until either the Sat-Seconds limit is
reached, or the patient % SpO2 re-enters the non-alarm range and remains there.
11.5.7 Changing the Speed of the Pleth Wave
In the [SpO2 Setup] menu, select [Sweep] and then select the appropriate setting. The faster the waveform sweeps, the
wider the waveform is.
11.5.8 Setting the Alarm Level for SpO2 Sensor Off Alarm
Select [Alarm Setup >>] from the [User Maintenance] menu. You can set the [SpO2SensorOff Lev.] in the popup
menu.
11-5
11.5.9 Setting the SpO2 Tone Mode
Select [Others >>] from the [User Maintenance] menu. In the popup menu, you can set [SpO2 Tone] as [Mode 1] or
[Mode 2].
WARNING

The same SpO2 tone mode shall be used for the same monitors in a single area.
11.6 Measurement Limitations
If you doubt the measured SpO2, check patient vital signs first. Then check the monitor and SpO2 sensor. The following
factors may influence the accuracy of measurement:

Ambient light

Physical movement (patient and imposed motion)

Diagnostic testing

Low perfusion

Electromagnetic interference, such as MRI environment

Electrosurgical units

Dysfunctional hemoglobin, such as carboxyhemoglobin (COHb) and methemoglobin (MetHb)

Presence of certain dyes, such as methylene and indigo carmine

Inappropriate positioning of the SpO2 sensor, or use of incorrect SpO2 sensor

Drop of arterial blood flow to immeasurable level caused by shock, anemia, low temperature or vasoconstrictor.

12 Monitoring NIBP
12.1 Introduction
The monitor uses the oscillometric method for measuring non-invasive blood pressure (NIBP).
Automatic non-invasive blood pressure monitoring uses the oscillometric method of measurement. To understand how
this method works, we’ll compare it to the auscultative method. With auscultation, the clinician listens to the blood
pressure and determines the systolic and diastolic pressures. The mean pressure can then be calculated with reference to
these pressures as long as the arterial pressure curve is normal.
Since the monitor cannot hear blood pressure, it measures cuff pressure oscillation amplitudes. Oscillations are caused
by blood pressure pulses against the cuff. The oscillation with the greatest amplitude is the mean pressure. This is the
most accurate parameter measured by the oscillometric method. Once the mean pressure is determined, the systolic
and diastolic pressures are calculated with reference to the mean.
Simply stated, auscultation measures systolic and diastolic pressures and the mean pressure is calculated. The
oscillometric method measures the mean pressure and determines the systolic and diastolic pressures.
As specified by IEC 60601-2-30/EN60601-2-30, NIBP measurement can be performed during electro-surgery and
discharge of defibrillator.
NIBP diagnostic significance must be decided by the doctor who performs the measurement.
NOTE

Blood pressure measurements determined with this device are equivalent to those obtained by a trained
observer using the cuff/stethoscope auscultatory method or an intra-arterial blood pressure measurement
device, within the limits prescribed by the American National Standard, Manual, electronic, or automated
sphygmomanometers.
12-1
12.2 Safety
WARNING

Be sure to select the correct patient category setting for your patient before measurement. Do not measure
NIBP on patients with sickle-cell disease or any condition where skin damage has occurred or is expected.

Use clinical judgement to determine whether to perform frequent unattended blood pressure
measurements on patients with severe blood clotting disorders because of the risk of hematoma in the limb
fitted with the cuff.

Do not use the NIBP cuff on a limb with an intravenous infusion or arterial catheter in place. This could cause
tissue damage around the catheter when the infusion is slowed or blocked during cuff inflation.

If you doubt the NIBP readings, determine the patient’s vital signs by alternative means and then verify that
the monitor is working correctly.
12.3 Measurement Limitations
Measurements are impossible with heart rate extremes of less than 40bpm or greater than 240bpm, or if the patient is
on a heart-lung machine.
The measurement may be inaccurate or impossible:

If a regular arterial pressure pulse is hard to detect

With excessive and continuous patient movement such as shivering or convulsions

With cardiac arrhythmias

With rapid blood pressure changes

With severe shock or hypothermia that reduces blood flow to the peripheries

With obesity, where a thick layer of fat surrounding a limb dampens the oscillations coming from the artery
12.4 Measurement Methods
There are three methods of measuring NIBP:

Manual: measurement on demand.

Auto: continually repeated measurements at set intervals.

STAT: continually rapid series of measurements over a five minute period, then return to the previous mode.
12-2
12.5 Setting Up the NIBP Measurement
12.5.1 Preparing to Measure NIBP
1.
Power on the monitor.
2.
Verify that the patient category is correct. Change it if necessary.
3.
Plug the air tubing into the NIBP connector on the monitor.
4.
Select a correct sized cuff and then apply it as follows:

Determine the patient’s limb circumference.

Select an appropriate cuff by referring to the limb circumference marked on the cuff. The width of the cuff
should be 50% of the limb circumference, or 2/3 of the upper arm’s length. The inflatable part of the cuff
should be long enough to encircle at least 50% to 80% of the limb.

Apply the cuff to an upper arm or leg of the patient and make sure the Φ marking on the cuff matches the
artery location. Do not wrap the cuff too tightly around the limb. It may cause discoloration, and ischemia of
the extremities. Make sure that the cuff edge falls within the marked range. If it does not, use a larger or
smaller cuff that will fit better.
5.
Connect the cuff to the air tubing and make sure that the air tubing is not compressed and twisted.
NOTE

The use of the equipment is restricted to one patient at a time.
Details about the cuff sites on different animals are as follows.

For a FELINE
For conscious patients, measurements from the coccygeal artery can be taken by wrapping the cuff around the base of
the tail. For anesthetized patients, measurements from the median artery on the foreleg can be used by wrapping the
cuff around the forelimb, between the elbow and carpus. For felines less than five pounds or when measurements are
difficult to obtain, place the cuff around the leg above the elbow to obtain measurements from the brachial artery. Hair
need not be clipped except when heavily matted.
Feline cuff placement

For a CANINE
For measurements in canines, it is preferable to use the right lateral, stemal or dorsal recumbent position. If the canine is
in a sitting position, place the front paw on the operator’s knee and take measurements from the metacarpus.
12-3
The metacarpus, metatarsus and anterior tibial are recommended for the cuff placement. For anesthetized patients,
most surgeries are done on the posterior part of the body so the metacarpal area of the forelimb is most convenient. In
situations where this is not possible, place the cuff around the metatarsus just proximal to the tarsal pad or around the
hind leg next to the hock. For conscious patients, measurements from the coccygeal artery can be used over the tail site.
Canine cuff placement

For larger animals
It is preferable for a large animal, such as a horse or a cow, to be in a stock, standing still. Measurments from the
coccygeal artery on the ventral surface may be used by placing the cuff around the base of the tail.
NOTE

The limb chosen for taking the measurement should be placed at the same level as the patient's heart


14.8 Measuring PAWP
Pulmonary Artery Wedge Pressure (PAWP) values, used to assess cardiac function, are affected by fluid status, myocardial
contractility, and valve and pulmonary circulation integrity.
Obtain the measurement by introducing a balloon-tipped pulmonary artery flotation catheter into the pulmonary artery.
When the catheter is in one of the smaller pulmonary arteries, the inflated balloon occludes the artery allowing the
monitor to record changes in the intrathoracic pressures that occur throughout the respiration cycle.
The pulmonary wedge pressure is the left ventricular end diastolic pressure when the airway pressure and valve function
are normal. The most accurate PAWP values are obtained at the end of the respiration cycle when the intrathoracic
pressure is fairly constant and the artifact caused by respiration is minimal.
14.8.1 Preparing to Measure PAWP
1.
Connect the parts such as catheter, syringe, etc. and use the balloon inflation port.
2.
Connect the PAWP cable into the IBP connector on the monitor. Since PAWP is measured on PA, selecting [PA] as
the IBP label is recommended.
3.
Select the PA parameter window or waveform area to enter its setup menu. Then, select [PAWP] to enter the PAWP
measurement window. You can also enter the PAWP measurement window from the P1-P4 parameter window.
NOTE

After entering the PAWP measurement window, the monitor will turn off the PA alarm automatically.
14.8.2 Setting Up the PAWP Measurement
1.
Wedge the flotation catheter into the pulmonary artery. Then inflate the balloon and pay attention to PA waveform
changes on the screen.
2.
After obtaining a stable PAWP waveform, press the [Freeze] key to freeze the waveform and deflate the balloon.
3.
You can adjust the PAWP scale to an appropriate position by adjusting
or
beside the [Adjust] button.
Press the [Confirm] key to save one PAWP measurement.
4.
If you need to start a new measurement, select [Next Measure].
WARNING

Prolonged inflation can cause pulmonary hemorrhage, infarction or both. Inflate the balloon for the
minimum time necessary to get an accurate measurement.

If the PAWP is greater than the PA (systolic), deflate the balloon and report the incident in accordance with
hospital policy. Because the pulmonary artery could be accidentally ruptured, and the PAWP value derived
will not reflect the patient’s hemodynamic state, but will merely reflect the pressure in the catheter or
balloon.
14-7
14.8.3 Understanding the PAWP Setup Menu
Select [Setup] to enter the [PAWP Setup] menu. In this menu, you can:

Select a ECG lead wave as the first reference wave.

Select a respiration wave as the second reference wave.

Select a sweep speed for the displayed waveform.

Change the size of the PA waveform by adjusting the scale height.

15 Monitoring Carbon Dioxide (CO )
2
15.1 Introduction
CO2 monitoring is a continuous, non-invasive technique for determining the concentration of CO2 in the patient’s airway
by measuring the absorption of infrared (IR) light of specific wavelengths. The CO2 has its own absorption characteristic
and the amount of light passing the gas probe depends on the concentration of the measured CO2. When a specific band
of IR light is passed through respiratory gas samples, some of the IR light will be absorbed by the CO2 molecules. The
amount of IR light transmitted after it has been passed through the respiratory gas sample is measured with a
photodetector. From the amount of IR light measured, the concentration of CO2 is calculated.
There are two methods for measuring CO2 in the patient’s airway:
1.
Mainstream measurement uses a CO2 sensor attached to an airway adapter directly inserted into the patient’s
breathing system.
2.
Sidestream/Microstream measurement samples expired patient gas at a constant sample flow from the patient’s
airway and analyzes it with a CO2 sensor built into the monitor.
The measurement provides:
1.
A CO2 waveform
2.
End tidal CO2 value (EtCO2): the CO2 value measured at the end of the expiration phase.
3.
Fraction of inspired CO2 (FiCO2): the smallest CO2 value measured during inspiration.
4.
Airway respiration rate (awRR): the number of breaths per minute, calculated from the CO2 waveform.
15-1
15.2 Measuring CO2
15.2.1 Making a Sidestream CO2 Measurement
1.
Attach the watertrap to the monitor and then connect the CO2 components as shown below.
Watertrap fixer
Sampling line
Watertrap
2.
The CO2 module needs time to warm up to reach the operating temperature. The message [CO2 Sensor Warmup]
is displayed during warm-up. If you perform CO2 measurements during warm-up, the measurement accuracy may
be compromised.
3.
After warm-up is finished, you can perform CO2 measurements.
CAUTION

The watertrap collects water drops condensed in the sampling line and therefore prevents them from
entering the module. If the collected water reaches a certain amount , you should drain it to avoid blocking
the airway.

The watertrap has a filter preventing bacterium, water and secretions from entering the module. After
long-term use, dust or other substances may compromise the performance of the filter or even block the
airway. In this case, replace the watertrap. It is recommended to replace the watertrap once a month, or
when the watertrap is found leaky, damaged or contaminated.
NOTE

To extend the lifetime of the watertrap and module, disconnect the watertrap and set the operating mode
to standby mode when CO2 monitoring is not required.
15-2
15.2.2 Making a Microstream CO2 Measurement

15.3 Changing CO2 Settings
15.3.1 Accessing CO2 Menus
By selecting the CO2 parameter window, you can access the [CO2 Setup] menu.
15.3.2 Entering the Standby Mode
The standby mode of the CO2 module relates to the standby mode of the monitor as follows:

If the monitor enters the standby mode, the CO2 module will also enter the standby mode.

If the monitor exits the standby mode, the CO2 module will also exit the standby mode.

If the CO2 module enters or exits the standby mode, it will not affect the monitor.
To enter or exit the standby mode manually, select [Operating Mode] in the [CO2 Setup] menu and then toggle
between [Standby] and [Measure].
When you set the sidestream CO2 module to the strandby mode, the CO2 gas sample intake pump automatically sets the
sample flow rate to zero. When exiting the standby mode, the CO2 module continues to work at the preset sample flow
rate.
For the sidestream CO2 module, you can set the delay time. After the delay time the CO2 module enters the standby
mode if no breath is detected.
15-3
For the microstream CO2 module, you can also set a period of time after which the CO2 module enters the standby mode
if no breath is detected since the CO2 module is powered on or the CO2 module switches to the measuring mode or the
automatic standby time is re-set. To set the standby time, in the [CO2 Setup] menu, select [Auto Standby] and then
select the appropriate setting.


[Des Compen]
For the microstream CO2 module, gas compensations are not required.
15.3.5 Setting up Humidity Compensation
Sidestream and microstream CO2 modules are configured to compensate CO2 readings for either Body Temperature and
Pressure, Saturated Gas (BTPS), to account for humidity in the patient’s breath, or Ambient Temperature and Pressure,
Dry Gas (ATPD).
1.
ATPD:
Pco 2 (mmHg ) = CO 2 (vol %) × Pamb / 100
2.
BTPS:
PCO 2 ( mmHg ) = CO2 (vol %) × ( Pamb − 47) / 100
Where, PCO 2 = partial pressure, vol % = CO2 concentration, Pamb = ambient pressure, and unit is mmHg.
For the sidestream and microstream CO2 module, you can set the humidity compensation on or off according to the
actual condition. To set the humidity compensation:
1.
In the [CO2 Setup] menu, select [BTPS Compen].
2.
Select either [On] for BTPS or [Off] for ATPD, depending on which compensation applies.
15-4
15.3.6 Setting the Apnea Alarm Delay
In the [CO2 Setup] menu, select [Apnea Delay] and then select the appropriate setting. The monitor will alarm if the
patient has stopped breathing for longer than the preset apnea time. The [Apnea Delay] of Resp and CO2 module keeps
consistent with each other.
WARNING

The respiration measurement does not recognize the cause of apneas. It only indicates an alarm if no breath
is detected when a pre-adjusted time has elapsed since the last detected breath. Therefore, it cannot be
used for diagnostic purpose.
15.3.7 Choosing a Time Interval for Peak-Picking
For microstream CO2 modules, you can select a time interval for picking the highest CO2 as the EtCO2 and the lowest as
the FiCO2.
In the [CO2 Setup] menu, select [Max Hold] and toggle between [Single Breath], [10 s], [20 s] and [30 s] (for
microstream CO2 module only).

[Single Breath]: EtCO2 and FiCO2 are calculated for every breath.

[10 s] or [20 s], or [30 s]: EtCO2 and FiCO2 are calculated using 10, 20 or 30 seconds of data.
15.3.8 Setting the Flow Rate
For the sidestream CO2 module, you can change the sampling rate of respiratory gas in the patient’s airway by setting
the flow rate. To set the flow rate, enter the [CO2 Setup] menu and select an appropriate setting from [Flow Rate].
WARNING

Please consider the patient’s actual bearing capability and select the appropriate flow rate when setting the
flow rate.
15.3.9 Setting up the CO2 Wave
In the [CO2 Setup] menu, you can:

Select [Wave Type] and toggle between [Draw] and [Fill]:

[Draw]: The CO2 wave is displayed as a curved line.

The [RR Source] settings of Resp and CO2 module are linked. For details, please refer to the section Setting RR Source of
chapter Resp.
15.5 Setting Barometric Pressure Compensation
Both sidestream and microstream CO2 modules have the function of automatic barometric pressure compensation (the
system automatically measures the barometric pressure which the monitor is exposed to). You must modify the
barometric pressure based on the actual situation as follows:
1.
Select [Main Menu]→[Maintenance >>]→[User Maintenance >>]→enter the required password→[Maintain
CO2 >>]→[Calibrate CO2 >>].
2.
Select [Barometric Pressure] and then enter the value of barometric pressure to which the monitor is exposed to.
15.6 Measurement Limitations
The following factors may influence the accuracy of measurement:

Leaks or internal venting of sampled gas

Mechanical shock

Cyclic pressure up to 10 kPa (100 cmH2O)

Other sources of interference, if any
15.7 Leakage Test
When the sidestream CO2 module needs maintenance, the monitor prompts on the CO2 waveform area: [Need
maintenance. Enter CO2 setup menu.] Then, you can access [User Maintenance >>]→ [Maintain CO2 >>], and
perform leakage test according to the prompt messages on the menu.
15-6
15.8 Troubleshooting the Sidestream CO2 Sampling System
When the sampling system of the sidestream CO2 module works incorrectly, check if the sampling line is kinked. If not,
remove it from the watertrap. If the monitor gives a message indicating the airway still works incorrectly, it indicates that
the watertrap must have been blocked, and you should replace with a new one. Otherwise, you can determine that the
sampling line must have been blocked. Replace with a new sampling line.
15.9 Removing Exhaust Gases from the System
WARNING

Anesthetics: When using the Sidestream or Microstream CO2 measurement on patients who are receiving or
have recently received anesthetics, connect the outlet to a scavenging system, or to the anesthesia
machine/ventilator, to avoid exposing medical staff to anesthetics.
To remove the sample gas to a scavenging system, connect an exhaust tube to the gas outlet connector of the module.
15.10 Zeroing the Sensor
The zero calibration eliminates the effect of baseline drift during CO2 measurement exerted on the readings and
therefore maintains the accuracy of the CO2 measurements.
15.10.1 For Sidestream and Microstream CO2 Modules
For sidestream and microstream CO2 modules, a zero calibration is carried out automatically when necessary. You can
also start a manual zero calibration if necessary.
To manually start a zero calibration:
1.
Select [Main Menu]→[Maintenance >>]→[User Maintenance >>]→enter the required password→[Maintain
CO2 >>].
2.
Select [Calibrate CO2 >>]→[Start Zero Cal.].
Disconnecting the patient airway is not required when performing a zero calibration.
15.11 Calibrating the Sensor
For sidestream or microstream CO2 modules, a calibration should be performed once every year or when the readings go
far beyond the range. For details, refer to the chapter 23 Maintenance.

21 Batteries
21.1 Overview
This monitor is designed to operate on rechargeable Lithium-ion battery power during intra-hospital patient transfer
or whenever the power supply is interrupted. The battery is charged automatically when the monitor is connected to
AC power, no matter the monitor is powered on or not. Whenever the AC power is interrupted during monitoring, the
monitor will automatically run power from the internal batteries.
On-screen battery symbols indicate the battery status as follows:

Indicates that the battery works correctly. The solid portion represents the current charge level of the
battery in proportion to its maximum charge level.

Indicates that the battery has low charge level and needs to be charged. In this case, the monitor provides
an alarm message.

Indicates that the battery is almost depleted and needs to be charged immediately. Otherwise, the
monitor will shut down automatically.

Indicates that no battery is installed.
The capacity of the internal battery is limited. If the battery charge is too low, a technical alarm will be triggered and
the message [] or [] displayed. At this moment, apply AC power to the monitor. Otherwise, the monitor will power off
automatically before the battery is completely depleted.
21.2 Replacing a Battery
When the monitor operates on battery power, make sure the monitor is power off before replacing a battery. To
replace a battery, follow this procedure:
1.
Open the battery door.
Pull here to open
the battery door
2.
Push aside the latch fixing the battery to be replaced and remove the battery.
3.
Insert a battery into the slot with its contact point inward.
4.
Close the battery door.
21-1
21.3 Battery Guidelines
Life expectancy of a battery depends on how frequent and how long it is used. For a properly maintained and stored
lithium ion battery, its life expectancy is about 3 years. For more aggressive use models, life expectancy can be less. We
recommend replacing lithium ion batteries every 3 years.
To get the most out of the battery, observe the following guidelines:

The battery performance test must be performed every two years, before monitor repairs, or whenever the
battery is suspected as being the source of the problems.

Condition a battery once when it is used or stored for 3 months, or when its operating time becomes noticeably
shorter.

Take out the battery before the monitor is transported or will not be used for more than 3 months.

Remove the battery from the monitor if it is not being used regularly. (Leaving the battery in a monitor that is not
in regular use will shorten the life of the battery).

The shelf life of a Lithium Ion battery is about 6 months when the battery is stored with the battery power being
50% of the total power. In 6 months the battery power must be depleted before the Lithium Ion battery is fully
charged. Then run the monitor on this fully charged battery .When its battery power becomes 50% of the total
power, take out the battery from the monitor and store it.
WARNING

Keep the battery out of the reach of children.

Use only the battery specified by the manufacturer.

If the battery shows signs of damage or signs of leakage, replace it immediately. Do not use a faulty battery
in the monitor.

Use only specified batteries.

Charge the batteries in this monitor.

High ambient temperature shortens battery run time.

Extremely high ambient temperature may cause battery overheat protection, resulting the monitor power
off.

The Lithium-ion batteries have a service life of three years. Please replace your battery when it reaches the
end of its service life. Failure toreplace the battery may cause serious damage to your device from battery
overheating.
21.4 Battery Maintenance
Conditioning a Battery
A battery should be conditioned before it is used for the first time. A battery conditioning cycle is one uninterrupted
charge of the battery, followed by an uninterrupted battery discharge and charge. Batteries should be conditioned
regularly to maintain their useful life.
21-2
NOTE

The battery charge level indicator does not indicate the capacity or operating time of the battery. It only
indicates the current battery charge level. The actual battery capacity decreases over time with the use of
the battery. For an old battery, its capacity and operating time may not fulfill battery specifications even the
battery charge level indicates the battery is in full charge. Please replace the battery if its operating time is
significantly lower than the specified time.
To condition a battery, follow this procedure:
1.
Disconnect the monitor from the patient and stop all monitoring or measuring.
2.
Insert the battery in need of conditioning in the battery slot of the monitor.
3.
Apply AC power to the monitor and allow the battery to charge uninterrupted for 10 hours.
4.
Remove AC power and allow the monitor to run from the battery until it shuts off.
5.
Apply AC power again to the monitor and allow the battery to charge uninterrupted for 10 hours.
6.
This battery is now conditioned and the monitor can be returned to service.
Checking a Battery
The battery performance test must be performed every two years, before monitor repairs, or whenever the battery is
suspected as being the source of the problems.The performance of a rechargeable battery may deteriorate over time.
To check the performance of a battery, follow this procedure:
1.
Disconnect the monitor from the patient and stop all monitoring or measuring.
2.
Apply AC power to the monitor and allow the battery to charge uninterrupted for 10 hours.
3.
Remove AC power and allow the monitor to run from the battery until it shuts off.
4.
The operating time of battery reflects its performance directly.
Please replace the battery or contact with the maintenance personnel if its operating time is significantly lower than
the specified time.
NOTE

The battery might be damaged or malfunctioned if its operating time is too short after being fully charged.
The operating time depends on the configuration and operation. For example, measuring NIBP more
frequently will also shorten the operating time.

When a battery has visual signs of damage, or no longer holds a charge, it should be replaced. Remove the
old battery from the monitor and recycle it properly.
21.5 Battery Recycling
When a battery has visual signs of damage, or no longer holds a charge, it should be replaced. Remove the old battery
from the monitor and recycle it properly. To dispose of the batteries, follow local laws for proper disposal.

Where, P is the maximum output power rating of the
transmitter in watts (W) according to the transmitter
manufacturer and d is the recommended separation distance
in meters (m).
Field strengths from fixed RF transmitters, as determined by
an electromagnetic site survey a, should be less than the
compliance level in each frequency range b.
Interference may occur in the vicinity of equipment marked
with the following symbol:
Note 1: At 80 MHz to 800 MHz, the separation distance for the higher frequency range applies.
Note 2: These guidelines may not apply in all situations. Electromagnetic propagation is affected by absorption and reflection
from structures, objects and people.
Note 3: The device that intentionally receives RF electromagnetic energy at the exclusion band (2395.825MHz-2487.645MHz)
is exempt from the essential performance requirements, but remains safe.
a Field strengths from fixed transmitters, such as base stations for radio (cellular/cordless) telephones and land mobile radios,
amateur radio, AM and FM radio broadcast and TV broadcast cannot be predicted theoretically with accuracy. To assess the
electromagnetic environment due to fixed RF transmitters, an electromagnetic site survey should be considered. If the
measured field strength in the location in which the [ME EQUIPMENT or ME SYSTEM] is used exceeds the applicable RF
compliance level above, the [ME EQUIPMENT or ME SYSTEM] should be observed to verify normal operation. If abnormal
performance is observed, additional measures may be necessary, such as re-orienting or relocating the [ME EQUIPMENT or
ME SYSTEM].
b For Resp field strength should be less than 1V/m.
WARNING

The device is configured with a wireless network connector to receive wireless signal. Other devices may
interfere with this device even though they meet the requirements of CISPR.

D Alarm Messages
This chapter lists only the most important physiological and technical alarm messages. Some messages appearing on
your monitor may not be included.
In this chapter:
The “I” field indicates how alarm indications are cleared: “A” means all alarm indications are cleared after the
hardkey
is pressed, “B” indicates alarm lamp flashing and alarm tones are cleared and the alarm messages change to prompt
messages after the
hardkey is pressed, and “C” indicates alarm lamp flashing and alarm tones are cleared and √
appears before the alarm message after the
hardkey is pressed.
The “L” field indicates the alarm level: H means high, M means medium and L means low. “*” means the alarm level is
user-adjustable.
XX represents a measurement or parameter label, such as ECG, NIBP, HR, ST-I, PVCs, RR, SpO2, PR, etc.
In the “Cause and Solution” column, corresponding solutions are given instructing you to troubleshoot problems. If the

E Electrical Safety Inspection
The following electrical safety tests are recommended as part of a comprehensive preventive maintenance program.
They are a proven means of detecting abnormalities that, if undetected, could prove dangerous to either the patient or
the operator. Additional tests may be required according to local regulations.
All tests can be performed by using commercially available safety analyzer test equipment. These procedures assume
the use of a 601PROXL International Safety Analyzer or equivalent safety analyzer. Other popular testers complying with
IEC 60601-1 used in Europe, such as Fluke, Metron, or Gerb, may require modifications to the procedure. Please follow
the instructions of the analyzer manufacturer.
The electrical safety inspection should be periodically performed every two years .The safety analyzer also proves to be
an excellent troubleshooting tool to detect abnormalities of line voltage and grounding, as well as total current loads.
