The Smart Carble technology acts as an affordable solution to the traditional modular monitoring systems. It comes with a 12 or 15 inch wide view high resolution TFT color LCD display. It also has a secondary display capability and displays up to 15 traces on the BSM-3700. Up to 14 traces can be displayed on the BSM-3500. The monitor can be easily controlled with the touch screen and remote controller. It measures gas with a multigas unit. It offers networking and a 12 lead ECG analysis. A built-in LAN port enables networking via Ethernet with an LS-NET patient monitoring network. Numerical data and waveforms can then be transferred to the central monitor. Numerical data and waveforms for up to 16 patients can be displayed even without a central monitor in the network on a networked Life Scope VS.
