Requires immediate intervention.
The interpretation of the patient's IPI score may change in different clinical environments. For
example, patients with specific respiratory difficulties (in contrast to normally healthy patients who are
being monitored during sedation or pain management) may require a lower IPI Low Alarm threshold
to reflect their impaired respiratory capacity.
The IPI is available for all three groups of pediatric patients (1-3 years, 3-6 years, and 6-12 years), and
for adult patients.
Ensure that the patient category and date of birth are set correctly before monitoring a patient's IPI.
An incorrect patient category or date of birth could produce incorrect IPI data.
