ECG Signal

WARNING
Operation of your system with ECG signals below 0.25 mV may cause inaccurate results.
The amplitude of the electrocardiogram (ECG) signal is critical for reliable frame triggering.
Frame triggering should be used only when a clean, noise-free ECG waveform is observed on
the ECG display. The ECG signal should be at least 0.25 mV to ensure reliable triggering when
the system is used in the presence of the electromagnetic phenomena described in this section
and elsewhere in your system user information.

Electrostatic Discharge Precautions

Electrostatic discharge (ESD), commonly referred to as a static shock, is a naturally occurring
phenomenon that results in the flow of an electrical charge from a higher charged object or
person to a lower charged object or person. ESD is most prevalent during conditions of low
humidity, which can be caused by heating or air-conditioning. During low humidity conditions,
electrical charges naturally build up on individuals and objects and can create static discharges.
The following cautions can help to reduce ESD effect:
CAUTION
Do not touch transducer connector pins or the system's transducer receptacle.
CAUTION
Handle the transducer by the metal connector shell.
