Standard Functions of VITALMAX 4000
- Manual – Press button to take one immediate blood pressure.
- Automatic Mode – Set up time interval for automatic readings every 2 minutes to 4 hours. Caregivers typically set the interval to 10 minutes before surgery, 5 minutes post surgery.
- Stat Mode – The monitor takes continuous readings, one begins as soon as the previous ends.
The second skin temperature (taken with an esophageal or rectal probe) reading can be used during invasive pressure when delta temperature (the difference between the skin temperature and the core temperature) is necessary

Optional Functions of VITALMAX 4000
All VITALMAX monitors have an end-tidal CO2 port connector standard on the front panel. Either include the module with your purchase or easily upgrade at a later date.
The VITALMAX uses a reusable Nafion tube line that absorbs moisture in the patient’s breath (dehumidification), eliminating the need for a water trap and risks of cross contamination.
To measure blood pressure by the invasive method, a catheter is inserted in a blood vessel and taken to the point of interest. The catheter has a transducer that provides electrical signals, which are then processed and analyzed by the monitor. Measurements of blood pressure by the invasive method give the systolic (maximum), diastolic (minimum) and mean pressures.
The invasive pressure range is from -30 to 300 mmHg, allowing the operator to use the monitor for measuring arterial pressure, pulmonary artery pressure and central venous pressure.
ΔTemperature comes with the invasive pressure module.
The result is a solution that is highly shock-proof, while featuring low power consumption and an exceptional degree of integration flexibility into the finished product.
The infrared technology consists of a multi-spectral detector that operates according to the principles of absorption measuring and ray mixture. During each use, the infrared light is reflected in four directions after which it passes through a filter. The filters are laid out so that they are only permeable for a small wave length bandwidth in which the analyzed gas shows a particular absorption characteristic. Consequently, it is possible to determine the concentration of the gas, based on the light intensity measured by a sensor. And unlike other sensors, the AAM is not susceptible to cross-sensitivities due to gases like water vapor, ethanol or acetone.
A rapid response time of less than 350ms for CO2 and less than 500 ms for other gases enables the AAM to differentiate between inhaled and exhaled gas concentrations. Plus, the functional range of the AAM provides automatic identification of the agent, including identifying and quantifying a mixture of two different anesthetic gases. Yet both sensors are lifetime calibrated and require only minimal maintenance.
Standard Features of VITALMAX 4000
- Alarm Events – caregivers can check the unit at any time to recall alarm events that transpired during the patient’s monitoring. It detects the event parameter and measurement that caused the alarm.
- Alarm Triggered Printing – automatically prints a paper trail of any alarmed events.
The recall patient history data for all parameters is the average of a 6-second sample of the data. Seventy two (72) hours of recalled data is stored in a nonvolatile memory. The memory can save the data, alarm events, and the latest waveforms for each patient in the recall patient history
