Responding to Alarms

Create an alarm condition and cover the following steps to respond to the condition.
1. Attend to the patient.
2. Identify the alarm(s) indicated.
3. Silence the alarm(s). When a physiological alarm is announced, the Audio Pause label displays
above the Navigation and Menu Select buttons. Pressing any of these buttons silences the audio for
all active alarms while you are attending to the patient. If the alarming condition continues to exist,
it will re-alarm in two minutes. Silencing a specific alarm does not prevent another alarm condition
from sounding. If you also silence the second alarm, it resets the two-minute audio pause for all
active alarms.
When an INOP is announced without a concurrent physiological alarm, the Audio Off label
displays above the Navigation and Menu Select buttons. Pressing any of these buttons silences the
audio for all active alarms while you are attending to the patient. INOPs do not reannunciate after
pressing audio off.
4. Address the alarm condition with one of the following options:
– Acknowledge - For latching alarms, acknowledge clears the alarm condition when the condition
no longer exists.
– New Limits - Adjust the parameter limits accordingly.
