What causes the low pressure alarm to go off with patient in the bed. Is it from a kink in the tubing?

Asked by: Edward 123
Thank you for your inquiry. It would probably be the air pressure. The audible/visible alarm turns on when pressure is low. To mute the audible alarm, press the mute button. The visible alarm indicator will continue to flash. The Air pressure issue must be corrected in order for the visible alarm to shut off. Once corrected the audible/visible alarm function will automatically reset. Thank you again Jazmin @ Drive.
