Infinity CentralStation Instructions for Use
Intended Use
The Infinity CentralStation is indicated for use by healthcare professionals for the
purposes of centralized monitoring within the hospital or clinical environment of
adult, pediatric and neonatal patient monitor data on the Infinity patient monitoring
network. The Infinity CentralStation is intended to measure and produce visual and
audible alarms for one or more physiological parameters. The Infinity CentralStation
with Rest ECG can provide interpretive diagnostic statements and reports for adults
and pediatric patients when connected to a monitor with ECG monitoring capability.
Infinity M300 Telemetry System is indicated to be used by healthcare professionals
for the purpose of monitoring ECG and pulse oximetry parameters of ambulatory and
non-ambulatory adult and pediatric patients in healthcare type facilities. Infinity
M300 is intended to operate with the Infinity CentralStation using wireless
communication over the Infinity patient monitoring network.
Infinity Telemetry System is indicated for use in an environment where patient care is
provided by healthcare professionals (physicians, nurses, technicians) when the
professional determines that a device is required to measure and produce visual and
audible alarms for adult and pediatric patient populations. Infinity Telemetry System
transmits via radiofrequency physiological signals for display and/or measurement at
the Infinity CentralStation. The Infinity CentralStation Telemetry System with TruST
is intended for 12-Lead ECG monitoring with a reduced set of electrodes.
Reconstructed leads are intended for real-time assessment of ST segment changes.

Infinity CentralStation Instructions for Use
ECG Report Precautions
Pacemaker and TENS Precautions
Certain difficulties are inherent to ECG monitoring and require special attention. Use
care to not misinterpret ECG waveforms of patients with pacemakers.
WARNING! If you require a diagnostic quality recording you
must use a Rest ECG Report (18-7).
WARNING! Pacemaker Performance
zIn areas of uncertain performance, the monitor has
been designed to err in the direction of false positive
rather than false negative alarms.
zIn paced patients, QRS complexes may not be counted
that result in false low rate alarms under the following
circumstances:
Fused beats and asynchronous pacers when cou-
pling intervals are +10 to -90 msec.
700 mV pacer pulses followed by QRS complexes
<0.5mV.
Asynchronous pacer pulses with overshoot.
zEven though the Infinity CentralStation passed the
Association for the Advancement of Medical
Instrumentation (AAMI) pacer pulse rejection test, it
cannot anticipate every waveform characteristic. The
system may count heart rates inaccurately and
misinterpret rate-dependent arrhythmias in some paced
patients. Do not rely entirely on the displayed heart
rate to assess a paced patient’s condition. Always
closely observe and carefully monitor these patients’
vital signs.
NOTE:
zThe Infinity M300 device contains a magnet which generates an extremely low
static magnetic field of approximately 2 gauss at 12.7 mm (0.5 in.) distance.
Please refer to the manufacturers Instructions for Use of any third party
medical devices in the patient vicinity for compatibility.
zThe Infinity Telemetry transmitter device contains a magnet which generates an
extremely low static magnetic field of approximately 11 gauss at 12.7 mm (0.5
in.) distance. Please refer to the manufacturers Instructions for Use of any
third party medical devices in the patient vicinity for compatibility.
Infinity CentralStation Instructions for Use
VF8 Infinity CentralStation xvii
For Patients Without a Pacemaker:
zDisable pacer detection. (See page 5-3.)
zBe aware that transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) signals are
similar to pacemaker spikes and may be labeled as such.
Pacer Fusion Mode Precautions
WARNING! Valid QRS complexes following mislabeled TENS
signals could be rejected, resulting in false asystole or low
heart rate alarms. Follow the directions for pacemaker pa-
tients. If TENS signals continue to be interpreted as pacer
spikes, disable pacemaker detection.
WARNING! Fusion mode pacer detection is not intended for
use with large-voltage, unipolar pacemakers. It is intended
for use only with biphasic pacemakers. Please observe the
following:
zBefore selecting Fusion mode be certain that the
patient has a biphasic pacemaker (external or
implanted) and that it is accurately programmed as
appropriate for that patient.
zDo not select Fusion mode if you are not certain what
type of pacemaker is in use, or how it is programmed.
zSelect Pacer Fusion mode only to suppress repeated
false asystole and/or false low heart rate alarms.
zSelection of Fusion mode may increase the risk of
falsely counting pacer spikes as QRS complexes, and
may cause cardiac arrest to be undetected. Therefore,
special surveillance of any pacemaker patient
monitored with this mode is strongly recommended.
xviii Infinity CentralStation VF8
Infinity CentralStation Instructions for Use
Pulse Oximetry Precautions
QRS Processing Precautions
WARNING!
zSpO2 measurements are particularly sensitive to
pulsations in the artery and the arteriole. Therefore,
measurements may not be accurate if a patient is
experiencing shock, hypothermia, a nemia, or has
received medications that reduce artery blood flow.
zCheck the sensor at least every four hours. Move the
sensor if there is any sign of skin irritation or impaired
circulation.
zBright sunlight can interfere with pulse oximetry
measurements, causing erratic or missing values. When
the sensor is likely to be exposed to direct sunlight,
cover it with an opaque material.
zElevated levels of carboxyhemoglobin or
methemoglobin in monitored patients can result in
inaccurate pulse oximetry readings.
zInfrared remote control devices, such as those used
with TVs and VCRs that are aimed directly at the SpO2
sensor can interfere with accurate pulse oximetry
measurements.
zSignificant levels of indocyanine green, methylene
blue, or other intravascular dyes can interfere with
accurate pulse oximetry measurements.
CAUTION! Use only Dräger-approved power supplies and batteries (contact your local
Dräger representative), otherwise the correct functioning of the product may be compro-
mised.
WARNING! High amplitude (>0.2mV) P- and T-waves of long
duration may register as integral QRS complexes. So that the
system accurately detects low heart rate in these cases, se-
lect the lead with the highest R-wave (relative to the T- and/or
P-wave) for ECG1. If the system continues to misinterpret P-
or T-waves, reposition electrodes or use other modalities to
monitor the patient.

with large-voltage, unipolar pacemakers. It is
intended for use only with biphasic pacemakers.
Please observe the following:
zBefore selecting Fusion mode be certain that the
patient has a biphasic pacemaker (external or
implanted) and that it is accurately programmed as
appropriate for that patient.
zDo not select Fusion mode if you are not certain
what type of pacemaker is in use, or how it is
programmed.
zSelect Pacer Fusion mode only to suppress repeated
false asystole and/or false low heart rate alarms.
zSelection of Fusion mode may increase the risk of
falsely counting pacer spikes as QRS complexes,
and may cause cardiac arrest to be undetected.
Therefore, special surveillance of any pacemaker
patient monitored with this mode is strongly
recommended.

Infinity Telemetry ST Defaults Setup
The Default ST Setup screen is similar to the ST Setup screen in Bed View, which
allows you to customize a particular patient’s ST monitoring. The Default ST
Setup screen allows you to define system-wide ST monitoring default settings,
except ST alarm default settings which must be configured in the Setup - Alarm
Limits screen (6-9). Also, ST monitoring default settings are for 3- or 5-wire
monitoring only. All 6-wire monitoring must be configured at the individual patient’s
Bed View ST Setup screen (12-9).
The default ST Setup settings are activated whenever a telemetry patient is
discharged. They can also be activated on a Bed View ST Setup screen that is
configured for 3-/5-wire monitoring. For more information on ST monitoring see
Chapter12.

Stopping Waveforms
You can stop all patient waveforms by clicking anywhere in the waveform area.
Stopping a patient’s waveforms in Main Screen does not stop them in Bed View.
Stopping waveforms has the following effect:
zThe banner WAVE(S) PAUSED displays below the topmost waveform.
zThe CONT and REC buttons appear ‘ghosted’ in the parameter area and you
cannot request a manual recording. You can request a print screen, however.
zParameter values and banners continue to be updated and the Bed Silence icon
and alarm message display in case of alarm.
To restart the waveforms, click inside the waveform area again. All previously
displayed waveforms erase and are replaced by new waveforms.
Waveform Color
The Infinity CentralStation supports the display of all real time and stored waveforms
and parameter values using the bedside currently selected colors or telemetry system
default settings. For information about changing waveform color at a bedside monitor,
see the monitors Instructions for Use. For information about changing waveform
color for a specific telemetry patient, see page 8-9.
Telemetry Waveform Dropout Display (Infinity Telemetry
only)
You can choose to display a dropout on a telemetry waveform in a clearly identifiable
negative Square-wave configuration to indicate a non-physiological event should
RFdropouts occur when using Infinity Telemetry. Square-wave display must be
configured via a system Biomed setting during installation.
Parameter Areas
The parameter areas to the right of each waveform may consist of several parameter
fields.
The parameter areas allow you to access each patient’s Bed View (Chapter 8).
If the patient is in alarm, the background of the respective parameter area on the
Infinity CentralStation flashes in the color associated with the highest grade alarm for
that bed.

Primary Vs. Secondary Parameters
The Infinity CentralStation displays primary and secondary parameters. The primary
parameter has an associated waveform displayed in the waveform area, but secondary
parameters do not.
The number of a patient’s displayed primary and secondary parameters depends on the
selected Main Screen layout.
Each parameter field may contain:
zone single-valued primary parameter and up to two secondary parameters, or
zone multi-valued parameter set (e.g. pressures)
The Primary Parameter is distinguished by its size. The Primary Parameter value(s)
and the label are the color of the associated waveform. If the Primary Parameter has
no waveform displayed, the values and the label appear white.
Up to two Secondary Parameters, not associated with waveforms, can be displayed
per Primary Parameter. Secondary Parameters are white and appear smaller.
Secondary Parameters consisting of triple-valued pressures are displayed in a single
row, in the format SYS/DIA (MEAN).
Allocation of Parameters - Bedside Monitors
The bedside monitors determine how parameters are allocated to the parameter areas
of the Infinity CentralStation. If more parameter slots are available than parameters to
fill them, the fields that are not allocated are blank.
If no parameters are available for a bed assigned to Main Screen because the monitor
is in “Standby” mode, the patient has been discharged, or the monitor has been
removed for transport, the entire waveform and parameter area for that bed appears
blank. A message banner in the waveform area explains the reason for the absence of
data.
Delta/Delta XL/Kappa/GammaX XL parameters are assigned in descending order.
The top waveform/parameter of the bedside monitor becomes the first Primary

Parameter/waveform at the Infinity CentralStation. Parameters continue to be
assigned in consecutive order (Primary Parameters first, then Secondary Parameters)
from the bedside to available parameter fields at the Infinity CentralStation. The
Infinity CentralStation supports two icons specific to these monitors.
zThe symbol in the parameter box alerts users that the O2 lower alarm
limit has been set to a value less than 21% at the MultiGas Module.
zParameters that originate from devices that are not part of the Infinity
Network, such as MIB devices, and duplicate parameters originating at the
Delta/Delta XL/Kappa/GammaX XL are marked with an asterisk. The same is
true when parameters are derived from two different sources within the
Infinity Network (such as the monitor and a connected pod).
If the next parameter box at the bedside monitor consists of a “set” of parameter
values for ST or the MIB device, only the topmost parameter value will be used as a
Secondary Parameter.
Gamma/Gamma XL/Vista monitor parameters are assigned using the top waveform
and corresponding parameter as the first primary waveform/parameter at the Infinity
CentralStation. The second waveform and associated parameter fill the next Primary/
Secondary fields. The remaining parameters are assigned top-to-bottom, left-to-right,
from the bedside parameter boxes to available parameter fields at the Infinity
CentralStation.
Allocation of Parameters - Telemetry Channels
The waveforms selected on the system Patient View Setup screen (Chapter 5)
determine the display order of parameters and waveforms in Main Screen. Any
changes in the waveform and parameter assignments in Bed View are automatically
reflected in Main Screen.
Notes Area
If the NOTES function is enabled (page 4-6), an area for entering patient notes displays
before each patient window.
Notes are only stored locally at the Infinity CentralStation, they are not stored at the
bedside monitor. Stored notes are deleted when you:
zreconnect any bedside monitor to that network location,
zdischarge the patient,
zremove the patient from Main Screen, or
NOTE: If a single-value Primary Parameter has minor parameter(s) associated with it
(e.g., SpO2 has PLS as a minor parameter), the Infinity CentralStation designates these
minor parameter(s) as secondary.

Waveform Area
Each waveform in Bed View consists of approximately 4 seconds of data. Waveform
colors for both telemetry and bedside patients are described on 8-12.
The waveform area does not display a waveform when:
zthe bedside monitor/transmitter is disconnected,
zthe patient has been transferred or discharged,
zthe bedside monitor is in Standby mode,
zthe bedside monitor or Infinity Telemetry receiver is offline, or
zthe wireless bedside monitor battery is depleted.
Telemetry Signal Strength
In a telemetry system there are conditions during which signal losses or “dropouts”
can occur. When there is a signal loss the Infinity CentralStation displays a blank in
the telemetry patient’s waveform. However, during installation, you can configure the
Infinity CentralStation to display a “dropout” as a negative square-wave (see page
7-7). To change how the Infinity CentralStation displays dropouts, contact Dräger
Service.
Putting Monitoring Into Standby Mode
Standby mode allows you to suspend patient monitoring when necessary. When
patient monitoring is in Standby mode, you can still view all of the patient’s stored
data such as trends and configuration settings from any Infinity CentralStation with
the client option.
When selected, Standby mode will display the message, Standby prominently in the
center of the waveform.

The Bed View application provides Alarm Limits and Arrhythmia setup tables for
customizing a patient’s monitoring attributes.
Bedside Patients
For bedside patients, the Alarm Limits and Arrhythmia setup tables reflect those at the
corresponding bedside monitor. When a bedside monitor acknowledges that it is being
remotely controlled, a message is displayed in the local message area at the bedside
monitor. Once the bed has successfully processed the change, the setup tables at the
bedside monitor and at the Infinity CentralStation reflect the change. If the bedside
monitor is unable to receive or process a change in setup, the following happens:
zThe table entry returns to the previously saved value.
zA corresponding status message is displayed in the status area of the Infinity
CentralStation (7-13).
zAn attention tone sounds.

Infinity TruST 12-Lead Monitoring Option
VF8 Infinity CentralStation 8-13
Infinity TruST 12-Lead Monitoring Option
Infinity TruST is a 12-lead ECG obtained with only six conventionally placed
electrodes. Its function is based on the knowledge that, in general, the signal from a
measured lead provides information common to other leads. When this information is
appropriately combined, the signal of leads not otherwise configured can be
interpolated. This type of lead derivation has a high correlation with measured leads.
TRUST electrodes are placed in accordance with current clinical practice. Like a
conventional 6-lead ECG system, waveforms from eight leads (typically, Leads I, II,
III, aVR, aVL, aVF, V2, and V5) can be viewed on the Infinity CentralStation. These
leads are processed and displayed in the same manner as a conventional system.
However, unlike a conventional system, TRUST processes and displays four
additional lead waveforms. These derived leads are viewable in the same fashion as
the conventional leads, but are designated as dV1, dV3, dV4, and dV6.
Electrode configuration includes limb leads and the selection of any two precordial
leads. Leads V2 and V5 are typically used as these often provide the highest
correlation for the remaining precordial leads. Alternate lead configurations can be
selected based on signal amplitudes and clinical requirements. See Appendix A: and
Chapter 3 for details regarding proper electrode placement.
Use of TruST Reference ECG
When TruST 12-lead is activated, the Infinity CentralStation uses generic
coefficients that are based on a general population. Performance in this mode meets
the established correlation to conventional leads.
NOTE: Infinity TruST is intended for 12-lead ECG monitoring with a reduced
electrode set. Reconstructed leads are intended for real-time assessment of ST segment
changes.
WARNING!
zThere may be instances where the QRS morphology in
one of the four derived leads differs from that of an
equivalent conventional lead. In these instances,
always refer to the conventional lead.
zDo not select derived leads for ECG processing.
8-14 Infinity CentralStation VF8
8: Patient Setup - Bed View
The following table shows the correlation between TruST generic derived leads and
conventionally measured leads for various lead configurations (a value of 1.0 being a
perfect match).
The performance above is based on a minimum 0.3 mV amplitude and QRS duration
< 180 milli-seconds on patients with a body surface area (BSA) of 1.5 – 2.5 m2.
Performance on patients outside these ranges may be less.
Patient View Setup Chest Lead Selection
When the Infinity TruST 12-Lead Monitoring option is enabled (18-11) and the
TruST 12-Lead: setting is On, recommended lead placements for Set V and Set
V+ are V2 and V5. Available selections are V1 through V6 and the lead selections
must match the actual electrode placement on the patient’s body.
With the two actual selected chest leads, the Infinity CentralStation calculates and
reconstructs the four remaining chest lead measurements designated as dV1 through
dV6. Chest lead selection on the Patient View Setup Screen will affect the
patient’s related screen displays (e.g. ST Setup, ST Points, Trend Graphs, Trend
Table, All Leads).
Recommended Lead Configurations and Respective Correlation
Correlation Precordial Lead Placement
0.956 V2, V5
0.953 V2, V6
0.953 V1, V5
0.952 V3, V5

NOTE: When using Infinity M300, the precordial leads are always V2, V5. They
cannot be changed.

Admitting Wireless Monitor Patients
The Infinity CentralStation treats wired and wireless monitors similarly.
The Infinity CentralStation provides a list of available wireless monitors in the care
unit.
Moving Between Wired and Wireless Communication
When a wireless bedside monitor is docked at an Infinity Docking Station, the monitor
automatically accepts the Infinity Docking Station’s Care Unit and Bed Label
assignments and communicates with the Infinity Network. When the bedside monitor
is removed from the Infinity Docking Station, the wireless network maintains
communication.
NOTE:
zFor detailed information about the configuration and operation of
wireless components in the Infinity Network, refer to the Dräger
publication, “Infinity OneNet Network Planning and Installation
Handbook” or “Infinity Network Planning, Design, and Installation
Handbook, Third Edition”.
zSee specific monitor documentation for information about using the
monitor with the Infinity CentralStation in a wireless network
configuration.
Admitting Wireless Monitor Patients
VF8 Infinity CentralStation 9-5
Assigning a Wireless Monitor to a Patient Window
If a wireless bedside monitor is removed from the Infinity Docking Station (IDS) and
it is configured to keep the IDS bed label, the Infinity CentralStation patient window
remains assigned to the wireless monitor and displays a wireless icon before the bed
label. When the wireless monitor returns to the IDS, the wireless icon disappears from
the patient window bed label.
If you dock another bedside monitor on the IDS associated with the wireless monitor,
the new monitor can select the same bed label and becomes available for assignment
on the Assign Bed screen in the Main Screen (page 4-5).
You must re-assign an Infinity CentralStation patient window in the following
situations:
zIf a wireless monitor bed label is changed to one that is not currently assigned
to a Infinity CentralStation patient window, or
zIf you dock another bedside monitor on a IDS whose bed label is currently
associated with a wireless monitor.
Collecting Full/Event Disclosure Data
If a patient is currently admitted to Full/Event disclosure and is using a wireless
monitor, all data collection will continue regardless of bed label change.

9: Admit/Discharge/Transfer
The Patient Transfer Function
You can transfer a patient’s trend and demographic data from one location to another.
For example, you can transfer data from a telemetry patient at the Infinity
CentralStation to any bedside monitor on the Infinity network or vice versa, or you
can transfer telemetry patients’ data from one Infinity CentralStation to another. All
transfers must be initiated from the destination device (the monitor/Infinity
CentralStation you wish to transfer the data to).
Special Data Transfer Conditions
During a patient transfer from a telemetry patient to a Gamma/Gamma XL/Vista
monitor, only the data from ST leads I and II is sent to the monitor. ST values may be
offset by up to 3 minutes due to different trend update intervals between devices.
Transferring Data to the Infinity CentralStation
1. Put the source device (bedside monitor or Infinity CentralStation Telemetry

10: Arrhythmia
Overview
With the Infinity CentralStation, Infinity Telemetry, Infinity M300 system, arrhythmia
monitoring is available for adult and pediatric patients. The mode you select (Full,
Basic, or OFF) determines the events processed. Arrhythmia monitoring is not
available for neonates.
The system matches incoming beats against beats previously recorded and stored in a
reference template. Through this process, the system can verify an arrhythmia event’s
occurrence, classify it, and draw clinically useful conclusions based on the frequency
and morphology of the signal. The system considers all beats questionable if a
baseline shift exceeds specified limits.
The system uses the results of QRS processing for arrhythmia analysis. During
multiple-lead arrhythmia processing, each lead’s QRS complexes are measured and
compared against its learned dominant normal beat. The system classifies beats based
on information acquired from all available leads.
About the Arrhythmia Template
The system creates a reference template based on its identification of the patient’s
dominant QRS pattern. It then classifies individual beats by comparing them with the
learned reference template. In the third and final phase of arrhythmia processing, the
monitor compares sequences of valid beats with the template.
In most situations, the learning phase takes about 30 to 40 seconds. If the system
detects more than 100 QRS complexes and less than 16 matching beats, it displays the
message, <Unable to learn>. While the system is in the learning phase, all arrhythmia
alarms and trend collection are suspended; LRN appears in the parameter box; and the
message, Relearning, displays in the local message area.
WARNING: Electrical artifacts of non-cardiac origin, such as
seizure, may prevent detection of certain arrhythmias. Do not
rely solely on ECG with seizure-prone patients.
NOTE: Arrhythmia detection may not work properly in all patients. The monitor
classifies only QRS complexes > 0.25mV, for widths > 70ms. An artifact condition
(ARTF) may occur when the ECG signal does not meet these minimums. While
continuing to monitor HR, you can turn off ARR Monitoring for patients whose QRS
complexes do not meet these minimums.
Relearning the Template
VF8 Infinity CentralStation 10-3
Relearning the Template
During the Relearn process a beat classification template is created against which
each detected beat is compared and classified.
An automatic Relearn is initiated in the following conditions:
zArrhythmia monitoring is enabled for the first time.
zA patient’s monitor (or Infinity CentralStation) comes out of Standby mode.
zThe processing mode (ECG1 or ECG 1&2) changes.
zLead assignment changes.
zTRUST monitoring is enabled.
zThe Telemetry Patient Category changes.
During the learning process no arrhythmia events are reported, and the parameter area
displays the message LRN.
Dräger recommends that you initiate a manual Relearn of the patient’s normal
template in the following instances:
zEight hours after the last Relearn occurred,
zAfter the patient’s electrodes are repositioned, replaced, or disturbed, or
zIf the message CANNOT LEARN <lead> or CANNOT LEARN is displayed.
Initiating a Relearn
1. Open the patient’s Bed View screen.
2. Click on Relearn in the Bed View menu bar.
3. Click on Relearn ECG.
Once the Relearn successfully completes, the assigned leads do not require relearning,
even if they fall off and are reconnected.
If the message CANNOT LEARN is displayed in the patient’s waveform area, try to
Relearn once more and confirm the quality of the signal. If the message persists,
reposition or properly replace the electrodes, then try again.
NOTE: If you assign more than one lead and if only one of those leads is available,
the algorithm will learn from that lead only.
NOTE: If the ST option is enabled, the ST algorithm also performs a Relearn of the
ST template whenever a Relearn of the arrhythmia template is initiated.

Arrhythmia Beat and Rhythm Classification
VF8 Infinity CentralStation 10-7
Arrhythmia Beat and Rhythm Classification
Beat classification refers to the analysis of individual beats. If the new beat’s features
do not match those of the reference template, the new beat is classified as abnormal,
paced, or questionable. The monitor uses all detected beats to calculate the heart rate,
eliminating questionable beats from arrhythmia classifications.
Category Definition
ASY Asystole: indicated if 4 seconds pass without the detection of a valid
QRS complex
VF Ventricular Fibrillation: indicated if the source device identifies a
sinusoidal waveform with fibrillation characteristics
VT 1Ventricular Tachycardia: “N” or more consecutive PVCs have been
detected with a beat-to-beat rate the VT rate.
RUN 1Ventricular run: a series of 3 to “N – 1” consecutive PVCs with a beat-
to-beat rate the VT rate
AIVR Accelerated idioventricular rhythm: a series of 3 or more PVCs with
a rate less than the VT rate
CPT Ventricular Couplet: a sequence of beats with the pattern: normal,
PVC, PVC, normal
BGM Ventricular Bigeminy: a sequence of beats with the pattern: normal,
PVC, normal, PVC, normal
TACH 1,2 Sinus Tachycardia: “N” or more consecutive normal beats with a beat-
to-beat rate to the set TACH rate
BRDY 2Sinus bradycardia: 8 or more consecutive normal beats are detected
with an average rate to the set sinus bradycardia rate.
PAUS Pause: a sequence of 2 normal or PVC beats with an interval to
pause rate value in seconds (± 100ms)
SVT Supra ventricular Tachycardia: “N” or more consecutive normal
beats with a beat-to-beat rate the SVT rate
ARTF Artifact: indicated if more than 50% of the beats in the last minute are
questionable
1 “N” represents the value in the Arrhythmia setup table ’Count’ column.
2 Arrival of a VPB or other abnormal beat breaks the analysis sequence and analysis restarts.

The following table describes available beat classifications:
Label Event and Beat Classification
ASY Asystole: 4 seconds pass without the detection of a valid QRS complex
VF Ventricular Fibrillation: The monitor identifies a sinusoidal waveform with
fibrillation characteristics1
VT Ventricular Tachycardia: N or more PVC’s are detected in a time interval
T = (60 * (N - 1)) / R, where N is defined as the VT count and R is defined as
the VT rate
RUN Ventricular Run: Series of 3 to N-1 consecutive PVCs with a beat-to-beat
rate the VT rate1
AIVR Accelerated Idioventricular Rhythm: Series of 3 or more PVCs with a rate
less than the VT rate
SVT Supraventricular Tachycardia: N or more consecutive normal beats, with a
beat-to-beat rate greater than or equal to the SVT setting
CPT Ventricular Couplet: Sequence of beats with the pattern: normal, PVC, PVC,
normal
BGM Ventricular bigeminy: Sequence of beats with the pattern: normal, PVC,
normal, PVC, normal
TACH Sinus Tachycardia: N or more consecutive normal beats, with a beat-to-beat
rate TACH rate setting2,3
BRDY Sinus bradycardia: 8 or more consecutive normal beats, with an average
rate sinus bradycardia rate setting2
Notes:
When in neonatal mode, bradycardia is a low heart rate alarm.
Brady Alarm (neonate only), which is a life threatening alarm, can be
configured independently of the low HR alarm, which is a serious alarm.
PAUS Pause: Sequence of two beats classified as normal or PVC, with interval
pause rate value in seconds (±100ms)
ARTF Artifact: More than 50% of beats in the last minute classified as
questionable
1Certain ventricular tachycardias have sinusoidal waveforms closely resembling
those of ventricular fibrillation. Because of the similarity of these waveforms, the
monitor may classify such types of ventricular tachycardia as ventricular fibrillation,
the more serious of the two conditions.
2 “N” is the event count set in the Arrhythmia setup table’s count column.
3A PVC or other abnormal beat breaks the analysis sequence and restarts analysis.

11: Telemetry Pulse Oximetry and NIBP Monitoring
Overview
Infinity Telemetry and Infinity M300 offer pulse oximetry monitoring.
The Infinity M300 contains an internal pulse oximeter. To enable pulse oximetry
monitoring through Infinity M300, a license option must be enabled.
Infinity Telemetry connects to the MicrO2+ Pulse Oximeter to provide pulse
oximetry monitoring. Infinity Telemetry also connects to Infinity monitors using the
Vital Connection cable for both pulse oximetry and NIBP monitoring (See page 11-5).
SPO2 and PLS measurements and their associated trend values are labeled identically
regardless of the source (Infinity monitor/Vital Connection Cable, MicrO2/MicrO2+,
or bedside monitor).
