Getting data out of a Nellcor N-85

Getting data out of a Nellcor N-85 - 17/01/17 3:42 AM

Hi, anyone tried extracting data out of a Nellcor N-85 SPo2/ETCo2 monitor? Specs say it is possible to download to a PC via an interface but I can find no information about what data fields and at what resolution.
Anyone tried this and with what success?

Thanks, Dave

Not tried it ... but as you probably know, the Operators' Manual makes helpful reference to the "Communication Interface Manual".

I'm assuming that the Manual is provided with the Communications Adapter Kit (P/N 48127).

However, according to this site the kit is no longer available (although that may well be a Bum Steer - who knows)!

I guess you need to touch base with your Covidien Rep in the first instance, Dave. smile

Not sure I see the point in that reply Geoff, talk about pointing out the bleeding obvious!

I now have a document which goes into quite some detail of the programme but it is too big to attach. I might email it to Huw and ask him to attach it for those who might find it useful

@Dave ... yes Mate; I was obviously wasting my time (as so often is the case). But meanwhile, now that you've got the tools - have you had any success?

@Huw ... thanks for that. At least now I too have the Nellcor Analytics Tool installed. All we need now are a couple of the mysterious .nat files to have a play with. smile
