Preparing for Defibrillation
Quick Look
You can use external paddles for a "Quick Look" to assess the patient's ECG rhythm and then, if
necessary deliver therapy. Use this process only when multifunction pads and monitoring electrodes
are not immediately available.
To view a patient's ECG using external paddles:
1
Make sure the device is turned on to Monitor.
Apply external paddles to the patient's chest, minimizing any unnecessary movement.
2
After the Efficia DFM100 detects the ECG, view the waveform on the display.
3
NOTE: Viewing the patient's ECG through paddles is not recommended for long-term monitoring.

Using Infant Paddles

The Efficia DFM100 external paddle set comes with infant paddles included. The American Heart
