transl8tor GP1430 FAQ

What does the transl8tor GP1430 do?

The transl8tor GP1430 is designed to allow communications between GE CARESCAPE Monitor B450 and CARESCAPE Monitor B650 patient monitors and the GE Mac-Lab/CardioLab Recorder Systems (MLCL). This translation allows the recording of data from the Carescape B450/B650 patient monitors (monitors).

What sensitive data does the transl8tor GP1430 use and store?

The transl8tor GP1430 does not use or store any uniquely identifiable information and all memory is volatile. The input is restricted to the data stream for the parameters listed on the data sheet, and is not associated with any specific patient related data. This data is immediately passed to the MLCL recorder.
