ECG Lead Fallback

ECG Lead Fallback
If fallback is configured on and there is a leads off INOP in the primary lead (and in the secondary
lead, if you are using multi-lead monitoring) for longer than 10 seconds, and if another lead is
available, this available lead automatically becomes the primary lead. This is known as lead fallback.
When the Leads Off condition is corrected, the leads are automatically switched back.
Lead fallback can be switched on and off in the monitor's Configuration Mode.
ECG Lead Placements
The labels and colors of the ECG electrodes differ according to the standards that apply for your
hospital. The electrode placement illustrations in this chapter use the AAMI labels and colors.
