The Central station displays and handles alarms; visual and audible notification, set-up and silencing. The Central station can be configured in many ways to suit the needs and preferences of the staff; hide or display trends, split screen etc. Pager systems can be connected with the Central station to notify staff of any alarms, affected patients and bed numbers.
Up to 36 patients can be monitored simultaneously when using a Central station. A maximum of 4 active screens can be linked to each Central station, along with several slave monitors. Linking several Central stations together further increases the number of patients that can simultaneously be monitored.
