MDSI2204 - Haemodialysis & haemofiltration machine: Actions to take following pressure-related alarms to avoid unintentional alteration of alarm limit



Venous and arterial pressure limits may be altered unintentionally following acknowledgement of the alarm in some haemodialysis and haemofiltration machines. If the cause of the alarm is not addressed, the machine may not re-alarm to alert the user to an ongoing problem.
