Connection to Philips IntelliVue MX700 #362

Is it possible to download waves (especially EEG) from a Philips IntelliVue MX700 via the LAN port, when the MIB/RS232 is already connected to the automatic anesthesia record system?

Any help would be highly appreciated! THANKS!

The EEG waves can be achieved directly from the EEG monitors such as BIS or Sedline monitors.
The output of the Philips monitor contains only the numerical data of the EEG, whether using a LAN or serial connection.

That is not correct. I have been downloading 1000 EEG at 125Hz and 4 other waves over the MIB/RS232 using rugloop. The major problem here is, that your software has to request data export first, before any other software or server asks the Philips monitor. The next request will get "numerical data" only, or let's say low resulted data at 1Hz (depending on the measurement). And not every Anesthesia EEG monitor is easy to access, e.g. the Narcotrend monitor does not allow direct access to its EEG, so it has to be connect to the Philips monitor via a IntelliBridge module, in case it has a LAN port as older monitors do not even have one. Concerning the LAN port: ixTrend is supposed to be able to download "waves" via the LAN port, so it should be possible.
