Conventional ECGs have 10 clips, 10 lead wires, 1 long cable, and a big machine with many parts. The test procedure requires a close encounter with the patient for a prolonged period of time. Disinfecting the ECG device after each test is tedious and time consuming.
Contaminated ECG wires had previously been reported as a source of an outbreak of vancomycin-resistant enterococci.(a) In a study, 77% of supposedly clean wires were found to be contaminated with antibiotic-resistant bacteria.(b)
PCA 500 uses prepositioned, single use electrode strips. The procedure time is shortened by 70%. After the test, the electrode strip is disposed, and cleaning the recorder with alcohol wipes takes less than 10 seconds.
If your office is currently using conventional ECGs with lead wires that are difficult to decontaminate after each use, it is time to consider upgrading to the PCA 500 with all the state-of-the-art technologies, better workflow, and lower risk of coronavirus spread.
