The operation of the patient monitor

The ECG monitor can monitor the patient's dynamic electrocardiogram, respiration, body temperature, blood pressure (non-invasive and invasive), blood oxygen saturation, pulse rate and other physiological parameters at the same time, providing help for disease treatment.

1. Assess the patient's condition: Assess the skin condition of the patient's chest area, arms, fingers and other parts, and inform the patient and their family members of the purpose, process and precautions of the operation;
2. Connect the power supply: connect the power supply of the monitor, turn it on to check whether the function of the machine is in good condition, and reserve it;
3. Check the information and set the body position: check the patient information three times and seven pairs, assist the patient to lie down, undress, expose the skin in the chest area, and clean with alcohol cotton balls;
4. Paste electrode pads: After the chest area is cleaned and dried, the electrode pads are attached to the corresponding position;
5. Tie the cuff: tie the cuff bag to the patient's cubital fossa with two transverse fingers, palpate the pulsation of the brachial artery, and one finger is appropriate for tightness;
6. Wear the blood oxygen saturation clip: clip the blood oxygen saturation instrument to the patient's finger, pay attention to the front and back, do not clip it backwards;
7. Adjust the numerical alarm range: adjust the machine mode and the alarm range for detecting vital signs according to the condition;
8. Comfortable position: assist the patient to take a comfortable position, adjust the position of the instrument and the position of the wire, and place it reasonably.
After the ECG monitor is installed, the patient should not unplug or adjust the device by himself, and pay attention to the wire pulling when turning over or changing the body position.
