7 ECG, Arrhythmia, ST and QT Monitoring
If no baseline has been set for this patient, the first five minute value after the start of monitoring is
automatically set as baseline. If you set a new baseline the previous baseline is discarded. As the 'QTc
alarm is based on the difference between the baseline and the current value, setting an inappropriate
new baseline may prevent a 'QTc alarm from being generated. Discharging a patient clears the
baseline.
