The CNS Monitor's configuration dialogs allow flexible integration with your existing network infrastructure. Network features include:

  • Configurable hostname
  • Configurations for a dynamically-assigned IP address (via DHCP) or a static IP address
  • Multiple username/password accounts capabilities to allow remote access to patient data

Typical Networking Configuration

  • The equipment of a typical network configuration will include one or more CNS Monitors (in the ICU, OR, and/or ER), one or more Review Workstations (in the EEG lab, physicians’ offices, or other locations), and one or more servers (for storage of data and remote access).
  • Patient data from ongoing CNS Monitor recordings can be viewed live from elsewhere in the hospital (such as the EEG lab or a physician’s office) or from outside the hospital (such as from a physician’s home). Viewing data outside the hospital requires the use of a secure network access method that has been approved and configured by your IT department (such as VPN, Citrix, GoToMyPC, etc.).
  • Recordings from the CNS Monitors can be transferred over the network for storage on a server, enabling their incorporation into the typical review workflow at your institution (that may include review, annotation, computational analysis, data trimming/compression, and archiving).

The CNS Monitor features an RJ-45 Gigabit Ethernet jack that can be used to connect the CNS Monitor to the organization's LAN. A second Ethernet jack is available for other network connections.
