Latching Alarms

The alarm latching setting for your MX40 defines how the alarm indicators
behave when you do not acknowledge them. When alarms are set to
non-latching, their indicators end when the alarm condition ends.
Switching alarm latching on means that visual and/or audible alarm
indications are still displayed or announced by the monitor after the alarm
condition ends. The indication lasts until you acknowledge the alarm by
touching the Alarm Silence button.

Alarm Behavior at Power On

If the MX40 is powered off for longer than one minute and then powered
on again (or after a loss of power lasting longer than one minute, or when a
patient is discharged), the device restores the latest alarm settings from
the Information Center.
If battery power is lost for less than one minute, the alarm on/off condition
prior to the power loss is restored.
