Fewer False Cardiac Alarms Mean Faster Care for Serious Alarms

Researchers at Cincinnati Children’s determined how to reduce false alarms on patients’ heart monitors by nearly 80 percent, which could help save lives.

“With fewer false alarms, the staff can address significant alarms more promptly,” said Dr. Christopher Dandoy of the Cancer and Blood Diseases Institute at Cincinnati Children’s. He was lead author of a report on the project.

Dandoy designed and conducted the study along with colleagues in the Cancer and Blood Diseases Institute and the Anderson Center for Health Systems Excellence at Cincinnati Children’s.
