Settings for File Recording

  • Cut file every hour : A vital file is created every hour. For use in the intensive care unit, we recommend selecting by hour.
  • Auto-splitting based on SpO2 and HR input: Automatically cut file according to whether the SpO2 and HR parameters are coming in.

Network Settings for Remote Monitoring

To use the real-time Web Monitoring feature on intranet, the configuration file (vr.conf) must be modified. Clicking the pencil button from the Setting window, you can edit the vr.conf.
