Previous SEL Number: 09ME-03-DEMP

Description: Advanced cardiac monitoring/defibrillation/pacing devices for use by practitioners with advanced medical training.


Operating Considerations: Consider interoperability with devices both less and more complex. Consider devices equipped with automated dysrythmia recognition and related alarm features; devices with clear and concise voice prompts; weight and storage requirements; cost of disposal of adjuncts/electrodes. Consider devices engineered to accommodate both basic and advanced trained practitioners.

These devices require special batteries supplied by manufacturers. Note battery life and need for electrical recharging units during protracted incidents. See also 09MS-06-PROB.

Training Requirements: Core Training: ASTM F1031-22, NFPA 450, NFPA 470 (within medical scope of practice).
