  Some aircraft engines have a buzzer that sounds when pressure is low,
as at start-up and shutdown.  One supposes it would sound for a few
seconds if there were a drop in pressure during operation.  That gives
opportunity for the pilot to shut down the engine, though in a
single-engine aircraft there still remains one problem.
