    Two AAMI Horizons Issues Dedicated to Alarm Management

    In the lead-up to the summit on clinical alarms in the fall of 2011, the Spring 2011 issue of Horizons, the AAMI BI&T biannual supplement, was dedicated to alarm management. Six years later, AAMI revisited this thematic topic in the Spring 2017 issue.

    These two issues are rich repositories of alarm management knowledge, including big-picture perspectives, approaches to clinical alarm management in practice, alarm system research and design, standards development, and commentaries.
