Ⅰ. Introduction of ECG monitor
The ECG monitor is an instrument connected to the patient's bed, which can continuously monitor various physiological parameters or certain states of the patient, and display alarms or records.
ECG monitors are increasingly favored and relied on by medical staff, their patients and relatives due to their high accuracy, convenience and practicality. The correct operation, maintenance, use and care of the subtle aspects should be paid attention to in daily application, which will bring more convenience to the medical staff and provide good help for improving the quality of medical care, such as portable ECG monitor with leads.
ECG monitors are widely used in clinical practice. They are mostly used for patient's condition monitoring and are a good helper for nursing staff. Clinically, different brands and functions of ECG monitors may have slightly different using instructions, but most brands are as follows.
Ⅱ. The steps for usage of the ECG monitor
The methods of usage vary from medical equipment manufacturers to models. The steps are roughly as follows:
1. Turn on the power supply
2. Connect to the ECG monitor, usually using simulated limb guides (red, yellow, blue and black, ie right upper limb, left upper limb, left lower limb, right lower limb), or according to the patient's condition, the heart lead connection can be selected, and each connector is marked with corresponding English alphabet.
3. Connect the blood oxygen probe, pay attention to that the red light-emitting surface and nails are close
4. Connect the cuff to adjust the blood pressure measurement time
Ⅲ. The use of the ECG monitor
Patients who are critically ill require continuous ECG monitoring of heart rate, rhythm and body temperature, respiration, blood pressure, pulse, and transcutaneous oxygen saturation.
