[0015] Fig. 1 provides a structural embodiment of a monitoring and controlling instrument. The monitoring and controlling instrument comprises: at least one physiological data monitoring module 10, a memory 20, a touch display screen and a processor 30.

[0016] In this embodiment, the at least one physiological data monitoring module 10 may monitor at least one physiological data of a patient, and the physiological data may be ECG data, blood oxygen saturation data, body temperature data, respiratory data, heart rate data, and blood pressure data, etc. For example, in some embodiments, the monitor comprises two physiological data monitoring modules for monitoring ECG data and blood oxygen saturation data of a patient. Moreover, the physiological data monitoring module 10 mentioned in this embodiment may acquire the collected original physiological data from an external physiological sensor, and then process the original physiological data to obtain physiological data that may be displayed on a display device. Different physiological data monitoring modules 10 may be used for different physiological data.

[0017] Of course, in some embodiments, the at least one physiological data monitoring module 10 may be integrated on one or more motherboards, or may be integrated on one or more processes. Moreover, in some embodiments, the at least one physiological data monitoring model 10 may be built in a monitor housing or externally placed outside the monitor housing. For example, the at least one physiological data monitoring module 10 may be connected to the monitor in an externally pluggable manner.

[0018] In this embodiment, the memory 20 is used for storing a program and the at least one physiological data. The program in this embodiment may include a processing program for processing the above-mentioned original physiological data or a program for processing the above-mentioned original physiological data and then displaying same on the touch display screen or other display device.

[0019] Of course, in some embodiments, the memory 20 may be integrated with the processor 30 or may be a separately provided storage device, for example, it may be a cache or a hard disk light storage device. Moreover, the memory 20 may also be used for storing programs related to processes such as detection, processing, tracking, and feedback of touch screen operations.

[0020] Specifically, in this embodiment, a touch display screen is used as a display device. The touch display screen is used for displaying one or more of the above-mentioned physiological data, and may also receive the touch screen operation input by a user. The touch screen operation here may be a sliding operation input on the touch display screen, for example, one or more of gesture operations performed according to a predetermined rule such as a single-finger sliding operation, a multi-finger sliding operation, and a tapping operation. Moreover, the touch display screen may also be used for receiving the touch screen operation under the control of the processor.

[0021] In this embodiment, a connection is established between the at least one physiological data monitoring module 10 and the memory 20, and between the memory 20 and the processor 30 via a bus system, which enables the memory to communicate with each physiological data monitoring module 10 and the processor 30, respectively.

[0022] Fig. 2 provides a method for displaying physiological data implemented on the monitor, which may be specifically described in combination with the structural embodiment of the monitoring and controlling instrument shown in Fig. 1. The processor 30 is used for running the program in the memory 20 to implement the following processes:
In step S10, a first partition configuration on a display interface of the touch display screen is acquired, the first partition configuration comprising a first physiological data display area and a first function information display area.

[0023] In one of the embodiments of this step, for each physiological indicator of the patient, there is a corresponding physiological data monitoring module for monitoring. For example, for one or more physiological indicators of the ECG activity, respiratory cycle, body temperature, and respiratory movement of the patient, the monitor has a corresponding physiological monitoring module to monitor one or more physiological data of the corresponding ECG data, blood oxygen saturation data, body temperature data, and respiratory data.

[0024] Each physiological data monitoring module 10 monitors each physiological indicator of the patient in real time, and sends the monitored physiological data to the memory 20 in real time, so that the memory 20 may store the physiological data. Of course, the patient-related physiological data obtained by monitoring in real time by each physiological data monitoring module may also be displayed on the display device, for example, on the touch display screen.

[0025] However, the display device often may not display the required information on one display interface at the same time due to the limitation of the size of the display screen, so the display interface needs to be arranged as needed. The processor 30 may perform the partition configuration of the display interface according to the use occasion or mode setting of the monitor. The partition configuration of the monitor comprises at least a physiological data display area and a function information display area therein. The physiological data display area may be used for displaying the physiological data monitored by the physiological data monitoring module 10 therein. The function information display area may be used for displaying function information of the monitor therein. The function information comprises one or more of function configurations, function attributes, and function buttons. For example, the content displayed in the function information display area comprises, but is not limited to, one or more of patient information, alarm information, power information, volume information, attribute configuration buttons, and wireless information, which is not specifically limited in this embodiment.

[0026] Usually, the monitor needs to monitor the physiological indicators of the patient in real time. The first physiological data display area and the first function information display area in the first partition configuration may be the physiological data display area and the function information display area at the first moment for displaying the physiological data and the function information of the monitor obtained at the first moment. Alternatively, in some embodiments, the first physiological data display area and the first function information display area in the first partition configuration may be the partition configuration of the display interface in a first state of the monitor, and the first state may be specifically a monitoring mode. For example, the monitoring mode may be a first monitoring mode for a critically ill patient or a second monitoring mode for a sub-critically ill patient, etc.

[0027] However, in order to facilitate viewing the physiological data by medical personnel, in some embodiments, the areas of the first physiological data display area and the first function information display area may be preset, so that the area of the first physiological data display area occupies most of the entire display interface, and the area of the first physiological data display area is greater than that of the first function information display area. Also, in order to facilitate modifying the function attributes by the medical personnel, for example, modifying the information of the patient being monitored, adjusting the volume information, or changing the wireless information, etc., the first function information display area may be located at the edge of the display interface of the monitor. In one of the embodiments, the first physiological data display area displays textual/numerical information (such as 1001 in Fig. 3) and waveform data (such as 1002 in Fig. 3) of at least one physiological parameter.

[0028] In step S20, at least one physiological data is displayed in the first physiological data display area.

[0029] In one of the embodiments of this step, the at least one physiological data may be obtained by the at least one physiological data monitoring module 10 of the monitor in Fig. 1, or the at least one physiological data may be physiological data obtained after the processor processes the original physiological data obtained by the at least one physiological data monitoring module 10.

[0030] In step S30, data other than the at least one physiological data is displayed in the first function information display area.

[0031] In one of the embodiments of this step, the first function information display area is used for displaying one or more of function configurations, function attributes, and function buttons of the monitor. Therefore, the data other than the at least one physiological data comprises, but is not limited to, one or more of patient information, alarm information, power information, volume information, wireless information, and attribute configuration buttons, which is not specifically limited in this embodiment. For example, the first function information display area may display a function configuration window, through which the layout of the display interface, font size, display content of the display area, etc. may be adjusted. As another example, the first function information display area may also display the function attributes, and the function attributes comprise at least one or more of patient information, alarm information, power information, volume information, and wireless information, etc. As yet another example, the first function information display area may also display the function buttons, for example, at least one or more of a configuration button, a menu button, etc. Specifically, the function buttons here are the result of a deep-level multi-level menu, and multiple steps are needed to complete the search for a certain function.

[0032] The processor may adjust the partition layout on the display interface by calling the program in the memory, and generate corresponding soft buttons or text and graphic information to represent the above-mentioned function configurations, function attributes, and/or function buttons.

[0033] Fig. 3 provides a monitor display interface in a normal display mode. The display interface here comprises two display areas. One is the first physiological data display area 101, the physiological data is displayed in the first physiological data display area 101, and the physiological data is further divided into the textual/numerical information 1001 and the waveform data 1002; and the other one is the first function information display area 102, the function information is displayed in the first function information display area 102, and the function information is the function button, alarm information, and volume information successively. Tapping the function button 1021 may pop up the function configuration window related to the monitoring attribute configuration and interface icon configuration, etc. For example, tapping the function button may pop up a configuration interface related to monitoring items, monitoring information, monitoring attributes, and function icon configuration, etc. Of course, for the first physiological data display area 101, different display positions may also be configured for different physiological indicators, which is not specifically limited in this embodiment.

[0034] In step S40, the touch screen operation received by the touch display screen is detected.

[0035] In one of the embodiments of this step, the processor detects the touch screen operation received by the touch display screen by calling the program in the memory.

[0036] The touch display screen may determine touch points on the screen by detecting capacitance transformation, and the touch points based on the touch display screen are processed to form a touch trajectory, thereby determining a touch screen operation corresponding to the touch trajectory. In some embodiments, the touch screen operation comprises one or more of the gesture operations performed according to the predetermined rule such as the single-finger sliding operation, the multi-finger sliding operation, and the tapping operation.

[0037] In step S50, a second partition configuration of the display interface is acquired if a first touch screen operation that meets a preset re-partitioning rule is detected, the second partition configuration comprising a second physiological data display area, a second function information display area, and a third function information display area.

[0038] In one of the embodiments of this step, in order to avoid that the display device may not display the information required by medical personnel on one display interface at the same time, the display interface may be arranged as needed, that is, the re-partitioning rule may be preset according to the use occasion or mode setting of the monitor. The re-partitioning rule comprises the display position, display content, and other display parameters of the physiological data display area and function information display area after partitioning. For example, in order to facilitate viewing the physiological data by the medical personnel, the partitioned physiological data display area is arranged at the middle position. However, the re-partitioning rule is preset with a corresponding trigger operation and the triggered partition configuration. The trigger operation here may be the touch screen operation, such as one of the single-finger sliding operation, the multi-finger sliding operation, and the tapping operation.

[0039] The physiological data display area in the second partition configuration may be used for displaying the physiological data monitored by the physiological data monitoring module 10 therein. The partitioned function information display area may not only be used to display the function information of the monitor, but also to display the function button icons therein. The function button icon here is a button icon predefined by the user as a hot key or other shortcut operation interface and is the result of a single-level menu, and only one step is needed to complete the search for a certain function. The function information is consistent with the function information disclosed in step S10 described above, including, but not limited to, one or more of patient information, alarm information, power information, volume information, attribute configuration buttons, and wireless information, which is not specifically limited in this embodiment.

[0040] Usually, the monitor needs to monitor the physiological indicators of the patient in real time. The second physiological data display area and the second function information display area in the second partition configuration may be the physiological data display area and the function information display area at the second moment for displaying the physiological data and the function information of the monitor obtained at the second moment. Alternatively, in some embodiments, the second physiological data display area and the second function information display area in the second partition configuration may be the partition configuration of the display interface in a second state of the monitor, and the second state may be specifically a monitoring mode. For example, the monitoring mode may be a first monitoring mode for a critically ill patient or a second monitoring mode for a sub-critically ill patient, etc. Moreover, for the second partition configuration at the second moment or in the second state, since the display content of the first physiological data display area may be displayed in the second physiological data display area, the second partition configuration will not affect the continuity and effectiveness of the monitoring of the physiological indicators.

[0041] During switching the partition configurations, the data in different physiological data display areas are continuously displayed, so that it is ensured that the monitor monitors in real time and continuously displays the physiological data.

[0042] In step S60, the at least one physiological data is displayed in the second physiological data display area.

[0043] In one of the embodiments of this step, the at least one physiological data may be obtained by the at least one physiological data monitoring module 10 of the monitor in Fig. 1, or the at least one physiological data may be physiological data obtained after the processor processes the original physiological data obtained by the at least one physiological data monitoring module 10. The textual/numerical information 1001 and the waveform data 1002 may be displayed in the second physiological data display area, or only the textual/numerical information 1001 is displayed in the second physiological data display area.

[0044] In step S70, data other than the at least one physiological data is displayed in the second function information display area.

[0045] In one of the embodiments of this step, the second function information display area is used for displaying the function attributes of the monitor. Therefore, the data other than the at least one physiological data comprises, but is not limited to, one or more of patient information, alarm information, power information, volume information, wireless information, and attribute configuration buttons, which is not specifically limited in this embodiment. For example, the second function information display area may display the function configuration window, through which the layout of the display interface, font size, display content of the display area, etc. may be adjusted. As another example, the second function information display area may also display the function attributes, and the function attributes comprise at least one or more of patient information, alarm information, power information, volume information, and wireless information, etc. As yet another example, the second function information display area may also display the function buttons, for example, at least one or more of the configuration button, the menu button, etc. Specifically, the function buttons here are the result of the deep-level multi-level menu, and multiple steps are needed to complete the search for a certain function.

[0046] In step S80, at least one function button icon is displayed in the third function information display area, the function button icon being used for characterizing a corresponding function operation.

[0047] The function button icon here is a button icon predefined by the user as a hot key or other shortcut operation interface, the corresponding button is the result of the single-level menu, and only one step is needed to complete the search for a certain function.

[0048] Specifically, the at least one function button icon comprises at least one soft button associated with the function operation. The function operation comprises: attribute configuration, interface configuration, alarm off, alarm on, measurement startup, shutdown, standby, etc. Each function button icon corresponds to one function operation, and the user taps the corresponding function button icon to enter the corresponding function operation interface or window, or the processor obtains the corresponding function instruction directly based on the user's tapping operation to perform the corresponding operation. For example, when the user taps the function button icon characterizing the alarm off, the monitor turns off the current alarm. When the user taps the function button icon characterizing the attribute configuration, the processor pops up an attribute configuration window or the function configuration window on the display interface.

[0049] Based on this, the first touch screen operation that meets the preset re-partitioning rule may comprise a parameter configuration operation, based on which, the above-mentioned window is popped up, for example, the above-mentioned attribute configuration window or the function configuration window is popped up. Of course, the above-mentioned first touch screen operation may also be a touch screen operation for triggering the second partition configuration, such as an operation of a hot-key display operation. Specifically, the first touch screen operation may be preset by medical personnel.

[0050] In one of the embodiments, the processor 30 detects the touch screen operation received by the touch display screen in real time; and the second partition configuration is further acquired if the first touch screen operation that meets the preset re-partitioning rule is detected. The second partition configuration comprises the second physiological data display area, the second function information display area, and the third function information display area. A display interface after re-partitioning is shown as in Fig 4a. In this display interface, the second physiological data display area 202 is arranged between the second function display area 201 and the third function display area 203. Compared with the display interface shown in Fig. 3, the area of the second physiological data display area 201 is smaller than that of the first physiological data display area 101, and the area of the second function information display area 201 is greater than or equal to that of the first function information display area 102.

[0051] Still further, in one of the embodiments, the content displayed in the second function display area 201 comprises the content displayed in the first function display area. Alternatively, the second function display area 201 comprises a window popped up on the display interface therein, and this window comprises the above-mentioned attribute configuration window or the function configuration window, for example, the second function display area 201 in Fig. 4a comprises a pop-up window.

[0052] In the embodiment of Fig. 4a, the display of the second function display area 201 may not cover the display area of the physiological data by re-partitioning the display interface. Moreover, in one of the embodiments, the second physiological data display area displays the textual/numerical information related to the physiological data. Generally, the display related to the physiological data comprises the textual/numerical information (such as 1001 in Fig. 3) and the waveform data (such as 1002 in Fig. 3). In one of the embodiments, the physiological parameters displayed in the second physiological data display area do not comprise the waveform data. The textual/numerical information comprises numerical information of basic parameters, for example, at least one of the ECG data, blood oxygen saturation data, body temperature data, respiratory data, heart rate data, and blood pressure data, etc. In one of the embodiments, the second physiological data display area displays the textual/numerical information of the at least one physiological parameter, but does not display the waveform data. The second physiological data display area, the second function information display area, and the third function information display area are arranged side by side on the display interface.

[0053] In one of the embodiments, after the first touch screen operation, the second partition configuration is acquired, so that the processor forms an interface distribution as shown in Fig. 4b on the display interface. The second partition configuration comprises a second physiological data display area 302, a second function information display area 301 and a third function information display area 303. The second physiological data display area 302 displays textual/numerical information (such as 1001 in Fig. 3) and waveform data (such as 1002 in Fig. 3) of at least one physiological parameter. The content displayed in the second function information display area 301 comprises, but is not limited to, one or more of patient information, alarm information, power information, volume information, attribute configuration buttons, and wireless information, which is not specifically limited in this embodiment. A hidden display area for displaying the function button icons is displayed without covering the normal displayed physiological parameter display area, thereby ensuring that the user will not affect the real-time observation of the physiological parameters due to operations such as the adjustment of configurations or the appearance of alarm information during use.

[0054] In one of the embodiments, in order to facilitate quickly finding some function button icons by the medical personnel, the third function information display area (such as 203 in Fig. 4a and 303 in Fig. 4b) may be located at the edge of the display interface. Still further, the third function display area and the first function information display area are vertically arranged on the display interface of the touch display screen and are respectively located at edge positions, specifically referring to 203, 201 and 303, 301 in Fig. 4a and Fig. 4b. Therefore, by re-partitioning, there is no case where the function display area covers the physiological parameter display area.

[0055] Still further, in one of the embodiments, the above-mentioned method further comprises the following steps:
after the first partition configuration of the display interface is acquired, acquiring the second partition configuration of the display interface if an alarm event is detected, the second partition configuration comprising a second physiological data display area, a second function information display area, and a third function information display area; displaying the at least one physiological data in the second physiological data display area; displaying data other than the at least one physiological data in the second function information display area; and displaying at least one function button icon in the third function information display area, the function button icon being used for characterizing a corresponding function operation.

[0056] In this embodiment, the alarm event comprises, but is not limited to, a physiological alarm and a technical alarm. Specifically, the physiological alarm refers to an alarm issued when the physiological data monitoring module detects that the physiological data exceeds an alarm threshold, for example, an alarm issued when an ECG data monitoring module detects that the patient's heart rate exceeds 140 times/minute; and the technical alarm is an alarm event caused by a failure of some device in the monitor, for example, the ECG data monitoring module is short-circuited, and as another example, the memory has an insufficient storage space, etc.

[0057] In one embodiment, the above-mentioned steps are implemented by the processor running the program in the memory. Based on this embodiment, the re-acquisition of the partition configuration may be automatically triggered when the monitor automatically detects the alarm event, thereby changing the partition configuration of the touch display screen to the second partition configuration.

[0058] For example, in one of the embodiments, after acquiring the first partition configuration of the display interface, the monitor displays the display interface as shown in Fig. 3, and when the processor detects the alarm event, the second partition configuration is automatically acquired and the display interface is adjusted to be under the display layout shown in Fig. 4b. In the specific implementation process, the second physiological data display area displays the textual/numerical information and the waveform data of the at least one physiological parameter, and the content displayed in the second function information display area comprises, but is not limited to, one or more of patient information, alarm information, power information, volume information, attribute configuration buttons, and wireless information, which is not specifically limited in this embodiment. The related explanation of the function information display area mentioned in the foregoing may be referred to for details. In one of the embodiments, the second function information display area does not display the pop-up window, for example, the above-mentioned attribute configuration window or the function configuration window.

[0059] In some of the embodiments, the above-mentioned method further comprises the following step:
switching the display interface from the second partition configuration to the first partition configuration if the duration of the alarm event exceeding a first preset duration is detected and no other touch screen operation is detected within the first preset duration. In one embodiment, the above-mentioned step is implemented by the processor running the program in the memory. Based on the monitoring of time, the layout of the display interface may be automatically adjusted.

[0060] In some of the embodiments, the above-mentioned method further comprises the following step:

switching the display interface from the second partition configuration to the first partition configuration when any one of the following conditions is satisfied;

no other touch screen operation is detected within the first preset duration; a second touch screen operation is detected in a preset region of the display interface; and a third touch screen operation that meets a first preset operation trajectory is detected.



[0061] In one embodiment, the above-mentioned step is implemented by the processor running the program in the memory. The second touch screen operation and/or the third touch screen operation may comprise at least one of gesture operations performed according to the predetermined rule such as the sliding operation, the single-finger sliding operation, the multi-finger sliding operation, and the tapping operation input on the touch display screen. The preset operation trajectory comprises a movement trajectory of the touch screen operation on the display interface at a position where an input portion (for example a user's finger) is in contact with a touch screen. The preset operation trajectory comprises, but is not limited to, a point contact, a linear movement trajectory, and a curved movement trajectory, etc. Of course, the first preset operation trajectory may be compared with the movement trajectory corresponding to the third touch screen operation input in the second physiological parameter display area or the second function information display area or in the entire display interface. The preset region may comprise any one of positions in the second physiological parameter display area or the second function information display area. Based on the monitoring of the touch screen operation, the layout of the display interface may be automatically adjusted.

[0062] In some of the embodiments, the above-mentioned method for displaying the physiological parameter further comprises the following steps:

displaying a first part of the at least one function button icon in the third function information display area; and

if a fourth touch screen operation that meets a second preset operation trajectory is detected in the third function information display area, in response to the fourth touch screen operation, displaying a second part of the at least one function button icon in the third function information display area.



[0063] In one embodiment, the above-mentioned steps are implemented by the processor running the program in the memory. The second preset operation trajectory in this embodiment comprises, but is not limited to, the point contact, the linear movement trajectory, and the curved movement trajectory, etc. The fourth touch screen operation may be a linear movement corresponding to the touch screen operation in the third function information display area at a position where the input portion is in contact with the touch screen, for example, a linear movement of the contact position of the input portion with the touch screen in the third function information display area 403 in a direction 404 indicated by an arrow in Fig. 4c. The second function information display area 401 is the second function information display area as mentioned above, and the second physiological parameter display area 402 is the second physiological parameter display area as mentioned above. The first part of the at least one function button icon is a combination of the function button icons as shown in a region 303 in Fig. 4b, the second part of the at least one function button icon is a combination of the function button icons as shown in a region 403 in Fig. 4c, and there are different function button icons between the two combinations, such as a function button icon 405.

[0064] In some of the embodiments, the above-mentioned method further comprises the following steps:
displaying a first part of the at least one function button icon in the third function information display area; and if a fifth touch screen operation for characterizing the movement of a target function button icon is detected in the third function display area, in response to the fifth touch screen operation, moving the target function button icon to a target position, and rearranging all the function button icons in the third function information area.

[0065] In one of the embodiments, as shown in Fig. 4d, if a finger continuous tapping or sliding operation 406 is detected in the region of a lock screen button icon located in the third function information display area 403, the operation is further tracked and responded to. It is assumed that when the lock screen button icon is located at the function button icon 405, the finger continuous tapping or sliding operation 406 disappears, the lock screen button icon is arranged to the function button icon 405, correspondingly, a function button icon 407 is moved to the original position of the lock screen button icon, and the function button icon 405 is moved to the original position of the function button icon 407. At this time, the display interface is as shown in Fig. 4e. The above-mentioned target position is positioned by tracking the movement trajectory operated by touching the display screen on the display interface at a position where the input portion (for example the user's finger) is in contact with the touch display screen. For example, the obtained movement trajectory is tracked to determine the target position corresponding to the fifth touch screen operation, thereby rearranging the function button icons.

[0066] In one embodiment, the above-mentioned steps are implemented by the processor running the program in the memory.

[0067] In some of the embodiments, the above-mentioned method further comprises the following steps:
after the second partition configuration of the display interface is acquired, acquiring a third partition configuration of the display interface if a sixth touch screen operation for characterizing the hiding of function buttons is detected, the third partition configuration comprising a third physiological data display area and a fourth function information display area; displaying the content displayed in the first physiological data display area in the third physiological data display area; and displaying the content displayed in the first function information display area in the fourth function information display area.

[0068] Still further, in one of the embodiments, based on the display interface obtained in the above-mentioned second partition configuration, the second function information display area comprises the foregoing pop-up window, and the third function information display area displays the textual/numerical information of the at least one physiological parameter instead, but does not display the waveform data. For example, as shown in Fig. 4f, when a window 504 is popped up in a second function information display area 501, the window is suspended over part or all of a second physiological data display area 505, and the textual/numerical information of the at least one physiological parameter in the second physiological data display area 505 is extracted to be displayed in the third function information display area 502. At this time, the function button icons originally displayed in the third function information display area are collectively transparent or hidden. The triggering of the function button icons originally displayed in the third function information display area to be collectively transparent or hidden may be based on the sixth touch screen operation, for example, tapping a soft button 503 (Fig. 4f). For example, by tapping the soft button 503, the function button icons originally displayed in the third function information display area may be expanded and displayed, so as to switch between the display of the function button icons and the display of the textual/numerical information of the physiological parameters in the third function information display area. Of course, it is also possible that by tapping the soft button 503, the function button icons originally displayed in the third function information display area are expanded and are formed in the third function information display area, and also the function button icons and the textual/numerical information of the physiological parameters are displayed, which is similar to the Fig. 4a.

[0069] In one embodiment, the above-mentioned steps are implemented by the processor running the program in the memory. Based on this embodiment, it is possible to hide the function buttons when the medical personnel does not need the function buttons to avoid occupying the display interface thereby. Of course, in one of the embodiments, when the processor detects a corresponding touch screen operation, for example, a touch screen operation for characterizing the hiding of the function buttons, the second partition configuration of the display interface is restored to the first partition configuration.

[0070] Moreover, in order to facilitate viewing monitoring data in real time by more medical personnel, an external expansion screen may be connected to the monitor. The external expansion screen is connected to the processor and may simultaneously display the content displayed in the display interface, of course, or simultaneously display for a certain display region, or display for function keys such as hidden function hot keys, which is not specifically limited in this embodiment and may be specifically configured according to actual needs.

[0071] The monitor provided by the embodiments of the present invention may switch the display interface from the first partition device to the second partition configuration when the first touch screen operation that meets the preset re-partitioning rule is detected. Since parameter configuration related data, physiological data and function button icons may be separately displayed in the second partition configuration, the problem that a parameter configuration interface blocks part or even all of the physiological data may be solved, thereby facilitating viewing monitoring data in real time by the medical personnel.
