Yellow Arrhythmia Alarms
Yellow arrhythmia alarms are short yellow alarms specific to
arrhythmia-related patient conditions. Depending on your Information
Center configuration, they may be shown with one or two stars. The heart
rate alarms (High HR and Low HR) can be configured as short yellow or
standard yellow alarms. When they are standard yellow alarms they exist
independently of the other arrhythmia alarms and no timeout periods
When arrhythmia analysis is on, all yellow ECG and arrhythmia alarms are
short yellow alarms (one-star). This means that the alarm tones (if volume
is on) are active for six seconds only, after which the blinking numeric and
the alarm message remain for up to three minutes. The only exception to
this are the HR High and Low alarms which can be configured as standard
yellow alarms. Red alarms behave as usual.
