Recording Strip Code
The recording strip code printed in the first line of the initial annotation has up to seven characters,
specifying recording type, operating mode, application area, patient category, and delay time, if
applicable. It is only included when annotations are configured to appear before the waves.
A selection of up to three waveforms is recorded, marked with wave labels and wave scale information.
Wave scale information can be in the form of a calibration bar, like the 1 mV calibration bar for ECG,
or calibration steps before the waveform starts.
Maintaining Recording Strips
Recording ink sometimes fades when covered with transparent tape. Avoid covering any part of a
recording that is clinically relevant (annotation or waveforms) when taping a recording strip to a
patient record or other patient documentation.
