The alarm limits you set determine the conditions that trigger yellow and red limit alarms.
Be aware that the monitors in your care area may each have different alarm settings, to suit different
scenarios. Always check that the alarm settings are appropriate before you start monitoring.
Viewing Individual Alarm Limits (Alarm Mode "All" Only)
You can usually see the alarm limits set for each measurement next to the measurement numeric on
the main screen.
If your monitor is not configured to show the alarm limits next to the numeric, you can see them in the
related measurement setup menu. Select the measurement numeric to enter the menu and check the
Changing Alarm Limits
To change individual measurement alarm limits using the measurement's setup menu:
In the measurement's setup menu, select the alarm limit you want to change. This calls up a list of
available values for the alarm limit.
Select a value from the list to adjust the alarm limit.
Set the alarm limits to a meaningful value for the individual patient. Setting the alarm limits to a too
high or too low value may render the alarm function useless.
