The VENT-LS has built-in alarms to alert the clinician when a patient and/or ventilator issue occurs. When an alarm is activated, an audible sound is emitted and a powerful light on top of the VENT-LS flashes. The HMI screen will also flash red when alarms are active. Audible sounds can be silenced for up to 60 seconds to allow the clinician to make settings changes to address whatever condition triggered the alarm. During this time, the HMI will continue to flash. The table below lists all the alarms, their description, whether the user can configure them, and to which modes they apply.
