Using ECG Alarms

ECG alarms can be switched on and off and the high and low alarm limits changed just like other
measurement alarms, as described in the "Alarms" chapter. Special alarm features which apply only to
ECG are described here.
Extreme Alarm Limits for Heart Rate
The extreme rate alarms, extreme tachycardia and extreme bradycardia, are generated by the active
alarm source, either HR or Pulse.
The difference between the low HR alarm limit and the extreme bradycardia limit is unit configured.
For example, if the low alarm limit is 60 bpm and the extreme bradycardia limit difference is
configured to be 20 bpm, then the extreme bradycardia limit is 40 bpm. If the difference is configured
to be 0, there will always be an extreme bradycardia alarm when the HR falls below the HR low limit.
Description
No beat detected for a period > 1.75
times the average R-R interval and pace
pulse(s) detected. (Paced mode on)
No beat detected for a period > 1.75

Heart rate > the high HR limit
Heart rate < the low HR limit

N and variability in P-R intervals and
P-wave variability (For adult patient
