Vital Sim heart rate
by Colleen Koszelak - Thursday, February 2, 2012, 11:03 AM
 
We just got 4 Vital Sim manikins in our lab. Is there any way to program the heart rate for a number that is not in the 10's? For example, 82, 64, 73, etc.?  I find that it just automatically goes to 60, 70, 80 and so on. Thank you.

Colleen,

I think I recall that can physically punch in the number using the keypad instead of using the up or down arrows.

I have done that and when you push OK it resets to 60, 70, etc. Even if you don't push OK and just leave that screen on it still is not set. We set it for 74 and when counted it was 70. Thank you for the suggestion.

Yep, I tried the same thing and it just goes back to numbers in the 10's. I'll keep watching the forum to see if anyone else can figure it out, I would also like to be able to program it to 82, 89 etc.
