The ECG (electrocardiogram) is a noninvasive medical test that measures the electrical activity of the heart over some time using electrodes placed on the skin. This test is crucial for diagnosing various heart conditions, such as arrhythmias, heart attacks, and heart failure. ECGs are used extensively in hospitals, clinics, and medical facilities around the world.

ECG cables and lead wires are important components of the ECG system. They connect the patient to the ECG machine and transmitting heart signals accurately. To maintain their effectiveness and extends the lifespan of the equipment, it's essential to regularly clean these components.

How To Clean And Disinfect ECG Cables And Leadwires?

We provides a step-by-step guide to clean ECG Cables & Leadwires that includes the following points:

  • Remove cables and leadwires from the device before cleaning.
  • Exercise care while cleaning leadwires to avoid damaging them.
  • Use a lightly moistened cloth with mild soap and water for general cleaning.
  • Disinfect using a soft lint-free cloth and a solution of sodium hypochlorite, adhering to specific dilution guidelines.
  • Do not immerse the ends of the cables or connectors, to prevent corrosion.
  • Wipe off cleaning solutions with a clean, moistened cloth.
  • Dry thoroughly with a dry lint-free cloth for at least 30 minutes.
