Using the blood pressure waveform to reduce critical false ECG alarms

Abstract

Intensive Care Unit (ICU) false alarm rates can be as high as 86%, leading to a desensitization of the clinical attending staff, slowing of response times and even ignoring true alarms. False alarms are commonly caused by single channel artifacts and could be avoided if information from other independent signals were fused to form a more robust hypothesis… (More)
