Non-Physiological Artifact Suppression
Some clinical procedures may affect blood pressure, for example, a flush procedure or a blood sample.
Your monitor may be configured to suppress these non-physiological artifacts for a specified duration
(Artifact Suppression is configured to 30, 60, or 90 seconds). During artifact suppression,
the monitor shows the INOP message <Pressure label> ARTIFACT, and a question mark is
shown beside the pressure numerics. Pressure alarms and the Pulse Non-Pulsatile INOP are
suppressed during the configured period. The CPP high alarm is not suppressed.
Choosing the Pressure Alarm Source
WARNING Make sure you set alarm limits for the correct label. The alarm limits you set are stored for that
particular label only. Changing the label may change the alarm limits.
You can monitor for alarm conditions in systolic, diastolic and mean pressure, either singly or in
parallel. Only one alarm is given at a time, in this order of priority: mean, systolic, diastolic.
