Possible Cause
A shock has been aborted
due to high impedance -
second notice.
A shock has been aborted
due to low impedance.
A shock was delivered but
there was marginal
impedance.
The device has detected a
power overload with the
connected paddles.
The device can't detect the
type of Therapy cable
attached.
A device failure has occurred. Run an Operational Check to diagnose the problem. If
Appears after power is
restored to indicate there was
a loss of power during
pacing.
Proper pads contact has been
lost with the patient.
The Efficia DFM100 has
detected an error which
prevents pacing therapy
delivery.
High impedance is causing
less current to be delivered to
the patient than specified in
the output current setting.
The Therapy cable is
disconnected from the
device.
Potential Solution
Replace the pads and check connection with patient.
Confirm proper skin prep and reapply pads.
Confirm that paddles are not touching each other when
placed on the patient's chest. Remove paste, moisture,
or any other conductive material between the pads and
patient.
Check pads connection with the patient.
Check paddles connection with the patient.
Run an Operational Check to see if the message clears.
If it doesn't, run an Operational Check with a different
set of paddles. If the message still doesn't clear, take the
device out of use and call for service.
Select the proper Therapy cable from the list presented.
the device is in use at the time of the message, begin
CPR if indicated.
Pacing does not restart automatically. If indicated,
resume pacing.
Check pads connection with patient. Confirm proper
skin prep.
Replace pads if necessary.
Resume pacing.
Replace the defibrillator. Remove the device from use
and call for service.
Check that pads are applied properly.
Check all Therapy cable connections.
Replace pads if necessary.
Resume pacing.
