ERM-8010 ECG Monitor

SKU: ERM-8010 Category:



THE ERM-8010 is a very sensitive ECG monitor that typically detects and displays a Lead II ECG in real time. With easily configurable alarms the monitor can alert you to rising or falling heart rates and the display is easily readable for viewing gross ECG abnormalities such as atrial fibrillation or heart block. A common use is to monitor toxic patients for ventricular ectopics during a pyo or gastric torsion. The respiratory monitor uses an in-line sensor that fits into your ET tube and records the respiratory rate and can alert you to periods of apnoea in a range from 5 to 60 seconds. The ERM-8010 also has a trend feature that stores the heart and respiratory rate every 60 seconds. This is displayed on the screen so that at any time the trend for the last hour can be seen. The unit has an extensive battery life. One standard 9-volt battery will give a working life of 250 hours – equivalent to over 4 months of every day use.
