    You have to register for some website to hear it - can you attach it here/link to it somewhere open-access?

    :o: Oh yeah, works now. I was looking at the "download file" bit above that.

    Anyway, rather annoyingly I recognise the alarm but can't remember what it is. I'll listen out for it today and will let you know later hopefully.

    That's what I thought too. I've heard it recently (when my brother was in ICU) and I've been trying to google ventilator alarms to check if I'm right, but haven't had any luck.

    I *think* it is a vent alarm for high airway pressures.

    It's either that or the vent "disconnected" alarm, I think.

    It sounds like an alarm I heard when my partner's grandfather was in hospital, regarding air in the IV tube. No idea if it's actually the same though, just similar.
