High Minute Volume activates when the monitored Minute Volume is larger than the set High Minute Volume alarm limit.
Follow these steps to troubleshoot this alarm:
- Ensure the alarm is set appropriately for the patient Breath Rate plus spontaneous rate.
- Check to see if the monitored Breath Rate is high. If so:
- Check for auto-triggering and adjust the Flow Trigger control setting if needed.
- If you are using an active Ventec One-Circuit and humidifier, clear any condensation from the active exhalation valve.
