LifeStar AF Express Cardiac Monitor (AFX) The LifeStar AF Express cardiac event monitor is a loop memory, single- channel ECG recording device. The LifeStar AF Express stores up to 10 minutes of real time ECG.
The LifeStar AF Express Cardiac Event Monitor
Steps to Subject Hook Up Connecting the Device Insert 2 AAA batteries into battery compartment Place the electrodes on the chest referring to the diagram provided Plug the lead set into the top of the device After a brief pause, the device will beep twice to indicate that scanning has begun.
Steps For Optimal Impedance Prepare the skin Remove any lotion, oil, powder or other substances from the skin Abrade the skin where the electrodes will be placed If the patient has a hairy chest it may be necessary to shave the areas where the electrodes will be placed
Create A Manual ECG Recording The Baseline Press the Record button to save an event The device will beep twice after each event
Automatic event recording The device may be programmed to automatically store a heart rhythm If the auto recorded event alert is programmed on, an alarm will sound when the device automatically records an event. If this occurs, the user should transmit the event as soon as possible
Transmitting an ECG Recording Place the device close to microphone attached to the laptop Press the SEND button (located on the back of the monitor) until an audible tone is heard, then release the button. The monitor emits a fluctuating tone; at the end of the transmission, the tone will stop
Sending, Storing, Viewing Subject ECG Reports Glaxo: Patient data will be downloaded to Laptop and TTMs will be transmitted to LW.
Erasing Sent ECG Recordings There is no need to erase sent recordings. Once the recording is transmitted to LifeWatch in its entirety, the device is automatically ready to receive new recordings as soon as the lead wire is plugged in again.
