Viewing and Silencing Telemetry Alarms at the Bedside
When a telemetry device is paired with the monitor, telemetry alarms will also be indicated on the
monitor, in addition to the main indication at the Information Center.

severity of the alarm. The specific alarm message (for example *HR Low) will appear in the Telemetry

alarms, if the Information Center and monitor are so configured.
