Since you have posted this in the section for EKG/ECG machines, I am surmising that you are referring to lower limb lead placement to decrease artifact on EKG readings. If you were my patient, I would simply move the lower limb leads up to the lower part of your torso where they would be less likely to be affected by movement from the fasciculations. It may cause a decrease in the deflection on the reading, but at least it will allow for a clearer overall "picture".
I hope this answers your question.
If your question was indeed how to cure the fasciculations themself, I would suggest discussing that with your neurologist. He or she is the only one who will have a clear enough knowledge of your whole case to be able to advise you properly.
Hook your ekg machine up to simulator. Run an ekg using the simulator as a patient's heart. If you get a clean 12 lead printout with the interpretation reading "normal sinus rhythm" then I doubt that you need a calibration. If you get something else, I will need to know what it is that you got. there is no true "calibration." If there are issues, they are addressed. Otherwise, you are good to go. Keep me posted,
hi, There is some problem with the patient cable. Any one of the lead is broken inside. AT2 senses the presence of all the lead first and then only it will acquire the ECG and store it in its memory,after that it will print the ECG. If any one of the lead have some problem. it will not go to the next procedure. and will indicate the lead off light.
1. check are you connected the lead correctly. 2. clean the electrode properly. then try one more time. if problem remains. you have to replace the patient cable. ok
hi, ur machines patient cable have some problem in its left leg lead ,it may be broken inside. no ecg will come if any of the lead have problem. machine sences all the leads is it proper or not , then only it will process th ecg and give printout. u have to replace the patient cable of ur machine. or try to replace the left leg lead if it is repairable one type patient cable. ok
3 lead machines are designed to monitor the cardiac rhythm cycle, in 3 of the 12 primary leads. An attempt to use this limited information as a true diagnostic tool would be incomplete and perhaps misleading.
A full 12-lead machine is diagnostic, and looks at the elecrical information from all sides ("walls", ie anterior, septal, inferior, lateral, posterior) of the heart and gives detailed information regarding ischemia and or infarction of the cardiac muscle, electrical conduction system function, electrical axis, chamber enlargement, drug effects, and more.
If it stops printing completely in the middle of doing the print, it is because the battery is bad and needs to be replaced. If it only prints some of the leads but it does print the full report it is because you have the leads mixed up (Wrong spot on the patient) or the leads are mislabeled or some of the clips or electrodes are bad. I can fix these. Let me know if you need help.
