Positioning ECG Electrodes

Positioning ECG Electrodes
Do not mix and match electrodes of different types. In particular, do not use
electrodes of dissimilar metals. This helps ensure optimal signal quality.
When you are connecting the electrodes or the patient cable, make sure that
the connectors never come into contact with other conductive parts, or with
earth. In particular, make sure that all of the ECG electrodes are attached
to the patient, to prevent them from contacting conductive parts or earth.
Non-manufacturer supplied accessories and supplies can corrupt the
performance of the equipment. Use only AAMI EC-12 compliant electrodes
with this device. Use of electrodes that are non-compliant may provide
erroneous results.
To protect the transceiver from damage during defibrillation, to ensure accurate
ECG information, and to provide protection against signal noise and other
interference, use only ECG electrodes and cables specified by Philips.
To make it possible to compare measured ECG signals, the electrodes (or
leadsets) are placed in standardized positions, forming so-called "leads". To
obtain ECG signals optimized for use in diagnosis and patient management in
different care environments, different leadsets in varying lead placements can be
used. You can use either standard lead placements or EASI lead placements with
the transceiver.
