          Abstract

          Sound alarm systems are designed to help healthcare professionals make critical decisions, affecting the wellbeing of patients. Given the ease with which we deal with the complex and disparate sounds that occur in our day-to-day environment, the difficulties users encounter when dealing with auditory alarms in healthcare systems seem remarkable. This paper examines the reasons underpinning the difficulties experienced with current alarms and explores how alarm systems might be improved resulting in less confusion and better established user mental models. The implications for medical decision making are discussed.

              False alerts in air traffic control conflict alerting system: is there a "cry wolf" effect?

              The aim is to establish the extent to which the high false-alarm rate of air traffic control midair conflict alerts is responsible for a "cry wolf' effect-where true alerts are not responded to and all alerts are delayed in their response.
