Managing Alarm Functions

WARNINGS
The MR400 can be set to provide visual alarm signals only, or both visual and audible alarm 
signals. The audible alarm states will have no effect on any of the visual alarms displayed by the 
MR400 (or IP5, if equipped). 
All settings in the Alarms menu (except Alarm Sound) can be stored and recalled. 
Restrictions to alarm presets are not provided due to the fast paced work flow, short average 
duration time of MRI scans, different patient types scheduled for MRI procedures, and direct 
patient supervision provided during MRI procedures.
Note
If the MR400 is networked to an IP5, alarm indications occur at both the MR400 and the IP5; and
control of alarms, including sound level, is localized to the device (MR400 or IP5) indicating the
alarm condition.

Showing or Hiding Current Alarm Limits

Current high and low alarm limit settings are displayed in the VS box of each monitored 
parameter by default (except bellows‐derived respiration). 
To control the display function for the alarm limit settings
4‐8  Alarms                                                                                                                                     Expression MR400 Instructions for Use
Always respond promptly to any alarm condition; otherwise, treatment of the patient
could be delayed.
You should ensure that the current alarm preset is appropriate prior to use on each
patient. Failure to do so may cause a lapse in patient monitoring.
Setting the alarm limits to extreme values can render alarm monitoring useless. Also,
potential hazard can exist if different alarm monitoring settings are used for the same
or similar equipment in any single patient care unit. Ignoring these restrictions may
cause a lapse in patient monitoring.
Step
Action
1
Press the Setup key and then the Alarms key.
The Alarms menu appears. Current settings are displayed.
