ECG Configuration

The MX40 supports 3-, 5-, and 6-wire patient cables. The 5-wire patient
cable can be used for either standard or EASI electrode configurations. The
6-wire patient cable can be used for either standard or Hexad electrode
configurations. The MX40 detects the patient cable type attached and
automatically determines the ECG measurement and transmitted leads.
Note—The labels and colors of the ECG electrodes differ according to the
standards that apply for your hospital. The electrode placement references
and illustrations in this chapter use the AAMI labels and colors. See the
table below for additional label and color information.
Arrhythmia analysis resides in the arrhythmia algorithm on the MX40.
Arrhythmia analysis is always turned on for telemetry patients unless
operating with the IntelliVue Information Center iX, where it can be turned
off. Arrhythmia analysis is either Basic or Enhanced (optional).
