4 Alarms
• One-star yellow alarms (short yellow alarms): The audible indicator is the same as for yellow alarms,
but of shorter duration.
• Standard INOPs: an INOP tone is repeated every two seconds.
ISO/IEC Standard Audible Alarms
• Red alarms and red INOPs: A high pitched tone is repeated five times, followed by a configurable
pause.
• Two-star yellow alarms and yellow INOPs: A lower pitched tone is repeated three times, followed by
a configurable pause.
• One-star yellow alarms (short yellow alarms): The audible indicator is the same as for yellow alarms,
but of shorter duration.
• Standard INOPs: a lower pitched tone is repeated twice, followed by a pause.
Changing the Alarm Tone Volume
The alarm volume symbol at the top right of the monitor screen gives you an
indication of the current volume. To change the volume, select the volume symbol
and then select the required volume from the pop-up selection.
If you want to see a numerical indication of the current alarm volume on a scale
from zero to 10, or change the setting, select the Alarm Volume SmartKey. The
volume scale pops up. The current setting is indented. To change the setting, select
the required number on the scale. Any settings that are inactive ("grayed out") have
been disabled in the monitor's Configuration Mode.
When the alarm volume is set to zero (off), the alarm volume symbol reflects this. If you
switch the alarm volume off, you will not get any audible indication of alarm conditions.
There is no alarm volume indication on the MP5 screen when the MP5 is connected to a host monitor
(Companion Mode is indicated).
Minimum Volume for No Central Monitoring INOP
If your monitor is connected to an Information Center, and the connection is interrupted, the INOP
message No Central Monit. will appear within 30 seconds, accompanied by an INOP tone. To
help ensure that this INOP, and any other active alarm, is not overlooked, the INOP and alarm tones
may be configured to have a minimum volume. In this case, INOP and alarm tones will sound even if
the monitor alarm volume is set to zero.
Minimum Volume for Severe Yellow or Red INOPs
Severe yellow or red INOPs require action to ensure the well-being of the patient. Therefore the
minimum volume for the INOP tone is set to at least alarm volume 8, irrespective of the current alarm
volume setting. The INOP tone will sound even if the monitor alarm volume is set to zero.
The severe INOPs for which this applies are:
Cuff Not Deflated (configurable to yellow or red)
