Preparing the Quadtrode Electrode Site
Proper preparation for the application of the Quadtrode electrode is critical to ECG performance.
The result of poor application preparation will be poor ECG monitoring performance. If electrode
contact with the skin is poor, then remove and discard the Quadtrode electrode, and repeat the
site preparation process again according to the instructions below. Never reuse a Quadtrode
electrode because it will not securely adhere to the skin.
