...Our study aims were pretty straight-forward. We concentrated quite a bit on arrhythmia alarms, which is a little different than the parameter alarms we've been talking about so far today. We decided we were going to assess the alarm prevalence of patient's physiological monitor alarms. We'll identify the alarm burden, analyze a select high priority number of arrhythmia alarms and determine patient characteristics that may be associated with the frequent alarms.
