What is an ECG?
BPL ECG Cable is a non-invasive extremely valuable diagnostic tool that assists in recording the heart’s electrical activity as waveforms.
What is an Electrocardiogram (ECG) Used For?
When interpreted accurately, an ECG can detect and monitor a host of heart conditions – from arrhythmias to coronary heart disease to electrolyte imbalance. ECG cables help you reliably make the correct connection to monitoring devices.
What is an ECG Cable?
ECG cables provide a connection between the patient, applied electrodes, various telemetry, and bedside monitoring units facilitating the monitoring of electrical impulses generated by the heart in a non-invasive manner.
BPL ECG Cable Uses
These high-quality reusable cables and ECG cable connectors complement your monitoring equipment, enabling accurate measurements.
Cables are subjected to strict testing to maintain the standard quality, reliability, and safety and are electrically shielded to protect ECG signal integrity.
Compatibility with Cardiac Systems
It can be applied for use with both static and telemetry cardiac systems. They are attached to electrodes which are applied to specific locations on the patient’s chest.
Proper Application Guidelines
Prior to application, it is important to ensure that the patient’s skin is prepared to be in contact with the electrodes. This is done by removing the layer of hair or dead cells and making sure the surface is free of contaminants.
Maintenance of ECG Cable
The ECG cable material is liable to show a long service life and accurate functioning. However, the service life of BPG ECG cable depends upon parameters including but not limited to the frequency of usage and the state of hygiene maintained while storing.
BPL ECG Cable Storage
When it is not in use, the ECG cable must be stored in its original packaging to prevent any damage that might reduce its lifetime, performance, and/or safety level.
ECG cable placement
It should be such that it is offered good mechanical resistance to traction and to flexion/bending in order to reduce the risk of damage during use.
ECG cable cleaning
For ECG cable cleaning, never sterilize the cables and accessories in an “autoclave” using boiling water or steam.
