Pulse Rate Alarms

You can turn on/off Pulse Rate alarms in all clinical modes where SpO
alarm limits may be changed during use. Alarms are annunciated if measurements fall outside the
configured limits for high or low pulse rate. All Pulse Rate alarms are categorized as non-latching alarms,
meaning they are automatically removed when their alarm condition no longer exists.
Pulse Rate alarms can be generated for the conditions shown in
alarm messages in the Pulse status area right above the Pulse numeric. There are both audio and visual
alerts. For more information on alarms, see
Table 23
