ECG Configuration Implications
ECG This setting lets you switch the ECG measurement On or Off. If ECG is switched Off, the
monitor will change to Pulse as alarm source, if a Pulse is available. One exception to this rule can arise
when you have a telemetry device paired with your monitor. If PulseAlarms Tele (see "Configuring
ECG/Pulse Alarms" on page 38) is configured to Disabled, the monitor does not fall back to the
System Pulse as alarm source.
Primary Lead / Secondary Lead / Analysis Mode The monitor uses the primary and
secondary lead to compute HR and to analyze and detect cardiac arrhythmias. They are also available for
recordings and for display on the Information Center. The Secondary Lead setting is used only if
Analysis Mode is configured to Multi Lead (instead of Single Lead) arrhythmia analysis. It
determines which additional lead will be used for arrhythmia analysis.
Va Lead / Vb Lead If you are using a 6-lead ECG cable, the two chest leads can be positioned at
any two of the V1 to V6 positions. The Va Lead / Vb Lead settings tell the monitor which positions
you have used so that the chest leads will be correctly labeled on the monitor and in printouts. If the
Global setting ECG Cable Color is set to IEC, these settings are labeled Ca Lead and Cb Lead.
Lead Placement Set this setting to EASI if you are using EASI lead placement. This tells the
monitor that you are using EASI lead placement. The label "EASI" will be shown beside the 1mV
calibration bar on the ECG wave on the display, and "EASI" is marked on any recorder strips and
Mod.LeadPlacment When Mod.LeadPlacment is set to On, 12 Lead ECG Reports will be
labelled 12 Lead ECG Report (Mason-Likar), and captured 12-lead ECGs will be labelled Mason-Likar to
the right of the bandwidth annotation at the Information Center. When Mod. LeadPlacment is set
to Off, 12 Lead ECG Reports will be labelled 12 Lead ECG Report, and captured 12-lead ECGs will not
be annotated at the Information Center.
Filter The Filter setting defines how ECG waves are smoothed.
• Monitor: The Monitor filter results in an ECG bandwidth of 0.5 - 40 Hz for the Adult, and 0.5 -
55Hz for the Pedi and Neo patient category. Use under normal measurement conditions.
