The Measurement Server has a three-channel electrocardiogram and respiration
measurement. It is designed to be used with adult, neonatal, or pediatric patients in ICU and
The ECG/Resp measurement produces continuous real-time waves for both cardiac and
pulmonary activity. It also generates numerics for the average heart rate (HR), derived from
the ECG, and for the respiration rate (RR).
You can use either standard or EASI lead placements with the M3046A Release E together
with the M3001A. Using a standard 5-electrode set in EASI lead placement you can monitor
three out of 12 standard ECG leads simultaneously and continuously at the bedside. EASI-
derived 12-lead ECGs and their measurements are approximations to conventional 12-lead
ECGs. As the 12-lead ECG derived with EASI is not exactly identical to the 12-lead
conventional ECG obtained from an electrocardiograph, it should not be used for diagnostic
Respiratory monitoring is also possible with the EASI placement; respiration is measured
between the I and A electrodes.
