When the ECG cable (Lead II) is connected, the LIFEPAK 1000 defibrillator provides nondiagnostic ECG display of the patient’s heart rhythm. You can change from therapy electrodes to the ECG cable or vice versa while the LifePak 1000 is off.
When the ECG electrodes are connected, the LifePak 1000 displays the patient’s heart rhythm and heart rate in a lead II configuration. Lead II is the only lead available with this cable.
Note: While in ECG mode, the defibrillator’s shock capability is disabled; however, the defibrillator continues to evaluate the patient’s ECG for a potentially shockable rhythm. Remember that the presence of an ECG rhythm does not ensure that the patient has a pulse.
If a shockable rhythm is detected, the defibrillator prompts CONNECT THERAPY ELECTRODES. Remove the ECG cable and connect the therapy electrodes to the defibrillator. Apply the therapy electrodes (11996-000017) to the patient’s chest, and remove the ECG electrodes if necessary. Follow the defibrillator’s voice and screen prompts.
