Technologic advances in hospitals have increased substantially over the past 25 years. With these advances come sophisticated and complicated monitoring equipment, many of which are manufactured with built-in audible alarms. These clinical alarms are intended to alert the clinician regarding a deviation from a predetermined “normal” status and are considered to be a key tool to improving the safety of patients by communicating information that requires a response or awareness by the operator. Twenty-five years ago, few hospital devices had alarm capability. Today most devices are manufactured with a functioning alarm. Alarms on acute care units are generated from any number of devices – infusion pumps, respiratory monitoring equipment, feeding pumps, bed or chair alarms, wound vacuum devices, sequential compression devices, cardiac monitors, ventilators, and patient call systems.
