If the alarm is sounding, this means that the power to the unit has been lost.
First, you should ALWAYS remove the nasal prongs from the patient’s nostrils so he or she can breathe without the prongs blocking the airway.
Second, you should place the patient on oxygen therapy via an oxygen tank. Patients typically receive 2 L/min of oxygen therapy.
Third, you can switch off the alarm by turning off the power switch on the Pumani unit. This will disengage the alarm.
Once power has returned to the Pumani unit, you can turn on the unit and place the patient back on Pumani bCPAP therapy.
