More than 500 alarm-related deaths occurred between 2009 and 2012. A key factor behind these statistics is alarm fatigue generally described as a situation where an excess number of clinical alarms lead to an adverse patient. In 2012, Emergency Care Research Institute (ECRI) cited alarm fatigue as its number-one technology hazard. False alarms those that are not medically significant and do not require a medical caregiver response can cause desensitization to alarms among care givers and prevent them from responding appropriately. Researchers surmise there may be as many as 700 alarms per day per patient, an estimated 80% to 99% of which are false or clinically insignificant
