Respiration values do not appear on some of the patient monitors when using the NIBP-1020.
Why doesn’t the respiration values appear on some of the patient monitors when using the NIBP-1020 and not on others?
The NIBP-1020 is using the RA and LA as the two leads to measure the resistance for respiration. The market place has monitors that use RA and LA leads and some that use the RA-LL leads.
Our patient simulators like the PS-2100 and PS-2200 series allow you to select one or the other of these set ups so that you can universally connect to a monitor and display respiration by selecting the right set up. Usually if one does not work the other set up will. We do not have an exhaustive list of monitors or OEM’s that use one over the other. However, the Mindray monitor uses RA-LL.
As a result, if you wish to display respiration on the monitor you will need to swap leads LA and LL.
