  • Causa
    If an affected patient monitor has been held continuously for several months, all displayed waveforms will contain outdated data and therefore will not match the patient's current condition. even if outdated waveforms are displayed because of this problem, the alarms and numeric indicators of the monitor's vital signs will continue to function as specified and reflect the patient's current data accurately. the time interval during which a monitor must remain connected before displaying the problem depends on the speed of the selected wave. it ranges from 102 days (at 50 mm / s) to 820 days (at 6.25 mm / s), and is approximately 205 days at the standard 25 mm / s wave velocity of the monitor. the monitor should be turned off to avoid this problem. just putting it into standby mode is not enough.
