Medical gas alarms are critically important to staff and patient safety. Master alarm panels monitor source equipment for malfunctions, and main line pressure for increases or drops in pressure. Area alarms monitor line pressure throughout medical centers and hospitals. Master and area alarms are required by NFPA in critical care areas to alert staff of high or low pressure in the gas lines.
