Possible Cause
The waveform in Wave
Sector 1 is no longer valid
and another ECG source is
available.
The specified monitoring
electrode is off or not
making proper contact with
the patient.
Two or more limb lead
electrodes are off or not
making proper contact with
the patient.
Possible Cause
A test load or defibrillator
test plug is attached to the
end of the Therapy Cable.
Pads impedance is less than
10 ohms.
Therapy cable is not
attached. Pads/paddles
connection compromised.
The Shock button was not
pressed within the
configured time period.
A shock has been aborted
due to high impedance.
The pads or paddles Therapy
cable is not connected to the
device.
The pads cable is not
connected to the Therapy
cable or pads are not
properly applied to the
patient.
An energy greater than 50J
was selected with internal
paddles connected.
Potential Solution
Check that the monitoring electrodes/pads are properly
applied.
Use the Lead Select button to select another lead to
monitor.
Check that the monitoring electrodes are properly
applied. If necessary, prepare the patient's skin and
apply new electrodes.
Check that the limb lead electrodes are properly
applied.
This message does not display when V and RL are off
because the device assumes a 3-Lead cable is attached.
Potential Solution
Remove the test load or defibrillator test plug and attach
multifunction electrode pads.
Check pads connection with the patient.
Make sure the Therapy cable is connected and the
pads/paddles are making proper contact with the
patient.
No action required. If desired, charge the device and
press the Shock button.
Check paddles connection with the patient. Remove
paste, moisture, or any other conductive material
between the paddles and patient.
Check pads connection with the patient.
Confirm all cables are properly connected.
Confirm all cables are properly connected and pads are
correctly placed on the patient.
Re-set energy setting to 50J or less.
