Low Inspiratory Pressure Alarm Troubleshooting Follow
Low Inspiratory Pressure activates when the monitored Peak Inspiratory Pressure (PIP) falls below the set Low Inspiratory Pressure alarm limit.
Follow these steps to troubleshoot this alarm:
- Ensure the Low Inspiratory Pressure alarm is set below the patient peak inspiratory pressure, taking into account changes in airway resistance and/or lung recruitment.
- Check the VOCSN Leak monitor. If it is high, locate and resolve any unintentional leaks in the patient circuit (and around the patient interface).
- If the problem persists, replace the patient circuit.
