Physio Control 3-Wire ECG Cable
Physio Control 3-Wire ECG Cable
Product Code 11111-000016
- 3-Wire ECG Cable
For use with your Physio Control LIFEPAK 1000 AED, this ECG Cable will provide a non-diagnostic ECG display of the patient’s heart rhythm, to allow users to monitor the patient’s progress during the rescue.
Lead II is the only lead available with this cable; when the ECG electrodes are connected, the LIFEPAK 1000 will display the patient’s heart activity in a lead II configuration.
How to use
Users should be aware that while in ECG mode, the AED cannot deliver shock therapy. The AED will, however, continue to evaluate the patient’s ECG for a shockable heart rhythm and will advise whether defibrillation is required.
If a shockable rhythm is found, the AED will prompt users to connect the electrode pads to deliver treatment. Following this instruction, users should remove the ECG cable and connect the therapy electrodes to the AED and continue to follow the prompts as you normally would during a rescue.

What is an IP rating?
An IP (Ingress Protection) rating classifies the degrees of protection of an electrical item against water and dust. Beginning with IP and followed by two numbers, the first digit is indicative of the item’s resistance to dust and the second is of its resistance to water. Protection against dust is measured from */ 0 up to 6, whereas protection against water is measured from */ 0 up to 8. The protection against these elements increases as the number does, with * / 0 telling us that the item has NO protection against either dust or water.
Why is this important?
The IP rating of a defib will tell you (and us!) whether it is suitable for the environment where it’s most likely to be used; for example, if there is a good chance your defib may be used in an outdoor environment, you will need a unit with a higher IP rating to ensure it can be used regardless the weather or terrain. If you are looking for a defibrillator more suitable for an indoors environment, you can afford to choose one with a lower IP rating, based on the other features that may be more suitable.
When a particular product is “approved” by the FDA, this marks the pass in the premarket approval (or PMA) application of a particular product which has been submitted to the FDA.
To receive approval of a device through a PMA application, the applicant in question must provide reasonable assurance of the device’s safety and effectiveness which is then challenged by the FDA before being approved.
Whilst all AEDs can be used to increase chances of survival and even save a life in the event of a cardiac arrest, FDA approved devices provide that extra piece of mind that the specific unit being used has undergone vigorous and substantial testing to ensure that that particular piece of equipment operates just as it should and provides the most effective care possible.
Many manufacturers perform their own tests on products, but not all defibrillators will undergo the same premarket approval as FDA approved devices and there is no guarantee or stamp of certification if testing has taken place with non-FDA approved products.
