Reason/Issue The Dash monitor may exhibit an unexpected loss of Custom Automatic NBP Measurement cycling. Custom Automatic NBP Measurement is a feature introduced in Dash version 6.0 which allows the user to program up to 4 different NBP auto mode sequences. When a view of another patient with an NBP parameter on the network occurs, if the Custom Automatic NBP Measurement cycling function is enabled, the function will turn off unexpectedly. The issue can occur when manually viewing another bed on the network using the View Other Beds option or automatically with the Automatic View On Alarm (AVOA) feature.
