We support you in facing your alarm management challenges
You monitor and deliver therapies to high acuity patients with devices that generate a broad range of medical alarms. Some medical device alarms are actionable, calling for your in-person intervention, while others are simply informational, raising your awareness to conditions that might escalate and later require a bedside response.
Clinical alarms can present significant workflow challenges. Developing effective methods and incorporating proven technologies to manage alarms can generate many benefits.
In a busy critical care unit with several patients, the volume of audible alarms is typically high. Signals can overlap and compete for the attention of care providers. As the number of medical devices featuring clinical alarms rises, and more patients are connected to them, the alarm management challenge grows more complex.
