BIS Monitor #375

I'm trying to use a BIS monitor with your software. It is plugged into COM6, I can see that it is sending/recieving data, however, I'm not able to see any waveforms with VitalRecorder. I was wondering if there is anything I am missing. 

I have followed the steps outlined in Guides and API references

My assumption is that it would simply show up. I've tried starting/stopping and start record. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

1. What is the model name of your BIS monitor?
2. You also need to change the settings on the BIS monitor side. Have you made the changes according to the guide?

Hi Brad,

I was able to get the Covidien BIS Vista (Medtronic) data working on Vital Recorder, Windows 10 Enterprise, 64 bit. We had to use the "Vista Binary" setting from the guide you linked, and used a simple Serial cable, RS-232 to USB. As an alternative you might be able to try Hyperterminal but that's a paid software. During a quick trial version I've found it to be less developed compared to Vital Recorder. Hope this helps, best of luck!
