Philips External Hard Paddles Defibrillator M3543A Features
The Philips External Hard Defibrillator contains a patient contact indicator (PCI). See Figure 50. If necessary, as indicated by the appearance of either a red or orange LED on the PCI, adjust paddle pressure and placement to optimize patient contact. Once proper contact is made, the PCI shows a green LED.
Defibrillation is always performed through paddles or pads. However, during defibrillation, you may choose to monitor the ECG using an alternate ECG source (3-, 5-, or 10-lead monitoring electrodes).
If an alternate ECG source is connected, any available lead may be displayed.
