ATOMICS Clinical Correlate (ATOMICS-CC) Single Parameter Alarms (SPAs)


The PERSEUS research program acquired ED bedside patient monitor datastreams continuously from the study area and displayed specific elements on a remote-mirroring dashboard display in the ED research office. Research assistants used this setup to screen for potential subjects based on whether they met inclusion criteria, as follows: A patient who triggered any of the study-selected, standard red alarms on a patient monitor (based on manufacturer algorithms and institutional configuration) was enrolled into the single parameter alarm [SPA] group: asystole, ventricular fibrillation, ventricular tachycardia; bradycardia (HR < 50 bpm), tachycardia (HR > 120 bpm); hypotension (SBP < 90 mmHg), hypertension (SBP > 200 mmHg); hypoxia (SpO2 < 89%)
This research was supported by the Agency for Healthcare, Research and Quality (AHRQ) under award number R18HS022860.
