Medical Subject Headings (MeSH): Clinical Alarms

Clinical alarms in healthcare are electronic systems that are used to alert healthcare professionals of potential problems or emergencies in patient care. These systems may include devices such as bedside monitors, ventilators, and infusion pumps, as well as central monitoring systems that are connected to multiple devices.

Clinical alarms in healthcare are designed to alert healthcare professionals to potential issues or changes in a patient’s condition, such as changes in heart rate, blood pressure, or oxygen levels. They may also be used to alert professionals to potential problems with medical equipment, such as a malfunctioning infusion pump or ventilator.

The use of clinical alarms in healthcare can help to improve patient safety and reduce the risk of medical errors. However, it is important for healthcare professionals to be aware of the potential for alarm fatigue, which can occur when alarms are triggered frequently and are not always relevant to patient care. To address this issue, healthcare organizations may implement protocols and procedures to ensure that alarms are managed effectively and that they are used appropriately to support patient care.
