A multi-parametric vital signs monitoring device configured for use as an ambulatory and a bedside monitor wherein the device can be patient-wearable and is battery powered. The monitoring device can be used with a charging cradle to provide power to the device in lieu of the battery as a power source for bedside applications, in which the cradle further serves as an intermediary device to enable a data link with a PC or other peripheral device. The monitoring device can include a wireless radio to enable bi-directional transfer of patient-related data to a separate remote station.
1. A multi-parametric patient monitoring device comprising: a device housing that retains a portable power supply, a CPU, and a display for permitting the monitoring device to operate in a first stand-alone mode wherein a plurality of physiological sensors are attached to said device housing and in
1. A multi-parametric patient monitoring device comprising: a device housing that retains a portable power supply, a CPU, and a display for permitting the monitoring device to operate in a first stand-alone mode wherein a plurality of physiological sensors are attached to said device housing and in which parameter data received from said sensors is processed by said CPU within said device housing;a wireless transceiver enabling said monitoring device to operate in a second mode in which patient-related data is transmitted to a remote station and in which said monitoring device is further configured to be separately operated in a separate charging mode wherein said device can still operate simultaneously in the second remote wireless transmitting mode while in said charging mode, said device further including a wired transceiver to permit patient-related data transfer remotely in said charging mode, and in which said device simultaneously transfers data over each of said wired and said wireless transceivers,wherein a plurality of physiological parameters are continuously monitored by said monitoring device, said monitoring device further comprising a pulse oximeter assembly in which said monitoring device is programmed to continuously monitor at least one of said plurality of physiological parameters while said pulse oximeter assembly is enabled to selectively operate in each of a continuous monitoring mode and a spot-check monitoring mode and in which the at least one of said plurality of physiological parameters is continuously monitored independent of the monitoring mode selected for the pulse oximeter assembly. 2. A device according to claim 1, in which the monitoring device is placed in a charging cradle in the charging mode, the charging cradle including a data port to permit communication between said patient monitoring device and at least one peripheral device. 3. A device as recited in claim 1, wherein said monitoring device is patient wearable in said first and second modes. 4. A device as recited in claim 2, in which the peripheral device is a large display wherein patient-related data is further transmitted in real time to said display in said charging mode using said data port. 5. A device as recited in claim 2, in which the peripheral device is a computing device. 6. A device as recited in claim 5, in which the computing device sends a configuration file to the patient monitoring device providing default settings for said monitoring device. 7. A device as recited in claim 5, in which said computing device automatically receives stored data from said patient monitoring device when said monitoring device is attached to said charging cradle. 8. A device as recited in claim 2, wherein said CPU includes memory for storing and trending patient-related data, said device further including a user interface that permits snapshots of data to be selectively taken, wherein all trended data and snapshot data is automatically transmitted when said patient monitoring device is attached to said charging cradle. 9. A device as recited in claim 1, including a user interface defined on said housing having a plurality of user-actuable buttons for operating said device, and in which said buttons can selectively be locked out. 10. A device as recited in claim 1, including a display having a backlight, and in which said display and the backlight can be selectively powered off to prevent unauthorized access. 11. A device as recited in claim 10, wherein at least one of the display and the backlight can be powered down based on inactivity of said device. 12. A device as recited in claim 1, including an ECG assembly, said ECG assembly including a pacer detection circuit for determining pacer spikes. 13. A device as recited in claim 12, wherein said ECG assembly determines an appropriate ECG vector for electrical noise detection using pacer spikes from the pacer detection circuit. 14. A device as recited in claim 1, wherein the wireless transceiver can be selectively powered down if the transceiver is out of range of an access point. 15. A device as recited in claim 9, wherein said user interface includes a plurality of buttons that are used with a display screen to navigate using drop-down menus that are accessed through the user interface. 16. A device as recited in claim 15, wherein said user interface can access a disconnected wireless mode menu in which the device can be selectively switched between a disconnected wireless mode and said wireless mode. 17. A device as recited in claim 1, wherein enabling said monitoring device in said spot-check monitoring mode permits a sensor of said pulse oximeter assembly to be continually removed and attached from a patient without alarm generation. 18. A device as recited in claim 17, wherein enabling said monitoring device in said continuous monitoring mode generates an alert each time said sensor of said pulse oximeter assembly is removed from the patient.
