Documenting Alarm Limits
To print a list of all current alarm limit settings on an available printer:
Select the Main Setup SmartKey.
Select Reports from the Main Setup menu.

You can see which alarms and INOPs are currently active in the respective alarms and INOPs fields at
the top of the screen.
To review the history of alarms and INOPs, select the alarms or INOPs field to open the Review

Review Alarms Window
The Review Alarms window contains a list of the most recent alarms and INOPs with date and
If configured to do so, each alarm is shown with the alarm limit active when the alarm was triggered
and the maximum value measured beyond this limit. The Review Alarms window also shows
when the monitor was switched on (after being switched off for longer than 1 minute) and any changes
made to the Alarms On/Off, Standby, Silence or ECG source.
When you select an item from the list, you can get additional information about that item. If you select
a high or low limit alarm in the list, the Graphical Trends window will open to provide further
data. If you select an alert other than a high or low alarm, a help text window opens with more
information. Some items in the list are simply log items not related to a patient alert as such (for
example, Alarms On or Alarms Off). You cannot see any further information if you select one of these
items. When you close these windows you will return to the Review Alarms window.
The information in the Review Alarms window is deleted when a patient is discharged, and when you
leave Demonstration Mode.
