I am legitimately over it. We have new GE monitors and they beep for EVERYTHING! Apnea is a triple beep but an arrhythmia isn’t. It doesn’t read the respiratory leads well so everyone is either tachypneic or breathing 6 breaths a minute. There is something beeping every minute it seems. It’s getting to the point that we are starting to ignore the alarms because there are so many of them.
This is what they mean when they refer to “alarm fatigue”
