  • Monitor quality defib protection
  • ECG storage to any device that appears to the pc as a drive. e.g. hard drives, floppies, optical, etc
  • Data Stored: ECG waveforms, time and date, and patient information (e.g. demographics)
  • ECG transmission by direct connect, modem, fax and internet
  • Measurement's Tolerances:
    Time: +/- 4msec
    Amplitude: +/- 1.22uV at 10mm/mV gain
  • Holter Analysis: Standard arrhythmia classification of all beats detected
  • NIBP's Tolerances: Time: +/- 4msec
    Pressures: +/- 2mmHg
    Pulse Rate: +/- 1bpm
  •  NIBP Limits: 45 - 300 mmHg (system cut-off at 300mmHg)
  • NIBP Cuff, Tubes and Connectors:
    Cuff Length: For bandage cuffs: The full cuff length extends beyond the end of the inflatable bladder by at least the equivalent of the length of the bladder,The length of the cuff is long enough that when inflated to 300mmHg, it does not slip or become loose.
    For hook and contact closure cuffs:
    The cuff is long enough to completely encircle the largest circumference limb (44cm), and
    maintains its full width throughout this length. Pressure capacity: The cuff completely retains the bladder when the bladder is inflated to a minimum pressure of 330mmHg. The tubes and connectors remain intact at 330mmHg.
    Cuff closures/construction for non-disposable cuffs:
    The cuff integrity is maintained after 1000 open-close cycles, and after 10,000 cycles to 300mmHg. The cuff bladder length encircles much of the circumference of the limb throughout its length and maintains much of its width throughout its length. The bladder length is at least 0.80 times the circumference of the limb at the midpoint of the cuff application. The cuff bladder width is at least 0.37 (preferably 0.40) times the circumference of the limb at the midpoint of the cuff application. System leakage (cuff bladder, tubing and connectors, etc) is less than 1 mmHg per second.
  •  Cables: All electrical cables have individually insulated wires and a jacket (usually PVC). All cables can withstand a stretch force of up to 5 lbs
  • Connectors: All electrical connectors have at least 0,025" spacing between conductors, have a maximum conductor contact resistance of 10ohms, and maintain this maximum resistance after 100 connect - disconnect cycles
