ResMed Vent – Device Alarm Connection Installation Instruction

Device Alarm Connection Instructions for ResMed Ventilators

 

Due to the fragile nature of the alarm output connector on the ResMed Astral 150 ventilator, APCOR, Inc. has developed a solution which protects the device’s port from the damage which occurs after repeated use. This two-piece design includes a rugged adapter (ME550ASTRAL for normally open systems and ME550ASTRALC for normally closed systems) and the corresponding ventilator alarm cable (ME590333N). Both the adapter and the alarm cable are included under part #’s:

ME590153: for use with normally closed systems          and          ME590153E: for use with normally open systems

Installation instructions:

  • Connect the 5 pin end of the adapter into the ventilator output port.
  • Thread the adapter cable behind the open rubber flaps.
  • Peel the backing off the cable tie mount and adhere it over the area displaying the DC Power input symbol.
  • Connect the 1/8” plug of the alarm cable into the mating jack of the now mounted rugged adapter.
  • Connect the right angle of the alarm cable into the designated headwall jack near the patient bedside.
Note: The rugged adapter is designed to remain permanently attached to the ventilator. To disconnect the alarm cable from the ventilator, grasp the end of the adapter in one hand and the end of the alarm cable in the other and pull the connector ends apart  (see image #4).

DANCe: Device Alarm Nurse Call Solutions

 

Device Alarm Nurse Call Cables

Enable critical remote alarm monitoring at the central nurses station by connecting Device Alarm Nurse Call cables between the equipment and the headwall nurse call jack near the patient bedside. Choose from over 50 unique connections to devices such as ventilators, pulse oximeters, infusion pump monitors and Amplion Alert Systems. Products are designed with smart features such as rugged straight cable that is easier to clean than the traditional coiled cable. Both the bright red cable color and yellow ‘CAUTION ’ label help communicate the importance of this connection to the patients’ care. Only the most rugged connectors available are used, and we proudly manufacture all our products at our FDA compliant facility in the USA.

To expand the capability of the existing central nurse call alarm system, use device alarm cables in tandem with our Nurse Call Input Multiplier. This budget-friendly accessory easily plugs into the in-room headwall jack to increase the number of inputs, turning the average room into a more intensive care unit!

Considerations When Using Interconnect Cables with Medical Devices

Considerations When Using Interconnect Cables with Medical Devices

Devices may include: Monitors, Monitor/Defibrillators, Ultrasound, Balloon Pumps, etc.

 

Introduction
Some hospital customers may wish to interface the defibrillator/monitor to other medical devices. Commonly referred to as “slaving”, the patient’s ECG signal is cabled from the analog output of one device to the patient input of another, for the purposes of remote monitoring. This document describes typical interconnection schemes, and clearly defines inappropriate uses.

Review: What is Synchronized Cardioversion?
With the SYNC mode selected on the defibrillator/monitor, each QRS complex the patient produces is identified and marked. The defibrillator only allows delivery of a shock immediately after a QRS complex is detected. In patients with certain arrhythmia, administering a random counter shock carries the risk of inducing ventricular fibrillation. In such cases, synchronized cardioversion is usually indicated. A defibrillation shock delivered during the vulnerable period of the cardiac cycle may actually cause ventricular fibrillation.

The Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) recommends that defibrillators operating in synchronized mode deliver the synchronized shock prior to 60 ms after the peak of the R wave. Since the vulnerable period immediately follows this 60 ms “window”, delivery of the shock must not occur more than 60 ms after the peak of the R wave.

Review: What is Noninvasive Pacing
The defibrillator/monitor is primarily used as a demand-mode pacer, which delivers pacing therapy based on the ECG signal acquired through its patient cable. Placing another device in the ECG signal path may result in unexpected distortions of the pacer-driven ECG waveform, which may, in turn, affect pacing therapy.

“Slaving” another device from the analog output of a defibrillator/monitor
When a defibrillator/monitor is used in conjunction with another device, the clinical staff may want to view the patient’s ECG signal on all units. A typical connection would allow the patient to be connected to the defibrillator/monitor plus have the ability to quickly interconnect a cable to the input of another device(s). This is the currently preferred method for synchronized Cardioversion or pacing.

“Slaving” The Defibrillator/monitor from the analog output of another device.
It may be impractical or undesirable to place additional monitoring electrodes on the patient. This “slaving” is a convenient method If you desire to also view the ECG waveform on the defibrillator/monitor, however, the delivery of Synchronized Cardioversion therapy or pacing with devices interconnected in this fashion can result in specific patient risks thus should not be done. To use the defibrillator/monitor during a cardioversion procedure or pacing, the patient cable must be connected directly to the defibrillator/monitor.

Noninvasive Pacing
IMPORTANT: The defibrillator/monitor should not be slaved from the analog output of another device when used for pacing. When pacing, the defibrillator/monitor must be connected directly to the patient through the patient cable.

Patient Risk Current
When interconnecting medical equipment, chassis leakage or risk currents may be increased. To ensure patient safety, the hospital biomedical staff should perform electrical safety testing on the complete system to ensure that safe current limits are not exceeded.

 Cable Availability
For assistance in acquiring the appropriate cables, contact MAGUIRE Enterprises at 800-548-9686 or visit our website to view our on-line catalog . Be prepared to provide the manufacturer and model number of the bedside monitor and defibrillator to be used. Patient cable input adapters are also available, allowing the monitor cable to be plugged into the defibrillator, even if the original connectors were non compatible.
