Observe the following warnings when a defibrillation is required while using the ultrasound
Before defibrillation, always remove all patient-applied parts from the patient.
Before defibrillation, always disconnect invasive transducers that remain in contact with the
patient from the system.
A disposable transducer cover provides no protective electrical insulation against
A small hole in the outer layer of the transducer opens a conductive path to grounded metal
parts of the transducer. The secondary arcing that could occur during defibrillation could
cause patient burns. The risk of burns is reduced, but not eliminated, by using an ungrounded
