Disposable ECG electrodes
|Publication Date:||1 January 2000|
This standard establishes minimum labeling, safety, and performance requirements for disposable electrodes used for diagnostic electrocardiography (ECG) or ECG monitoring.
Included within the scope of this standard is any disposable ECG electrode system (see 3.4).
Devices excluded from the scope of this standard are active electrodes, needle electrodes, reusable (nondisposable) electrodes, electrodes intended to deliver therapeutic energy, and electrodes primarily designed for the measurement of physiologic signals other than the electrocardiogram (e.g., electrodes used with apnea monitors, if the electrode is used for non-ECG purposes, e.g., impedance plethysmography). Also, requirements for electrolyte composition are not covered by this standard.
