    Utilizing a standard bedside monitor

    I am interested in utilizing the GE bedside monitor instead of the Laerdal touch screen monitor. Has anyone done this successfull whereas the vitals are sent to the bedside monitor? I dont want both sets of monitors present and would rather staff use what they do in the respective patient care setting.

    Re: Utilizing a standard bedside monitor

    Not sure about your specific monitors but we don't use the monitors that came with the simulator set up. We use ELO touch screens. From a technical standpoint, if it has all of the connections you need, there is no reason why you shouldn't be able to use your GE bedside monitor. I have substituted our ELO touch for an HP large screen touch and an MSI touch monitor and it worked seamlessly with laerdal software. You might need to install a driver on your computer for the display if your computer doesn't recognize it. You might need to re-establish the extended desktop when you hook up a new monitor through your display control panel.
