    Philips is advising their customers that the following two items must be configured when using the MX40 with the IntelliVue Information Center iX: 1. Utilise the default state of Pause Alarms at Yellow only, which disables the ability to Pause/Suspend all Red level alarms. 2. Utilise the default state of Remote Suspend Alarms as off, which disables the use of the Pause Alarm feature of the MX40 device. Philips will implement a software update to correct the issue. This action has been closed-out on 12/02/2016.
