Why Should You Attend:
Medical device reports indicate that it is usually difficult to assign a root cause to problems reported concerning device alarm systems. The most common alarm system issue is that the device does not provide a critical alarm capable of getting the attention of the care giver. Frequently, the alarms are not heard or they have been silenced or deactivated and never set. This often results in nurses not responding to patients in crisis. The FDA has received over 500 fatality reports from no response to alarms.
This webinar goes a step further. It will detail why the most appropriate strategy is to eliminate non-urgent alarms as much as possible. Hundreds of alarms can be eliminated by design or by integrating them into a patient’s condition monitoring.
