A safe and simple way to teach up to 15-lead ECG electrode placement anatomically and provides visual feedback on the accuracy of electrode placement.
Students will learn the placement of the electrodes on the adult torso trainer using anatomical landmarks such as intercostal spaces, midclavicular line, anterior axillary, line, midaxillary line, and scapula.
Connection sites for four limb leads and V1 through V9, with the ability to attach right- or left-sided electrodes.
The trainer does not provide ECG output signals, but simulations of rhythms and hands-free defibrillation can be performed by adding any ECG arrhythmia simulator directly to your ECG monitor.
The 15-Lead ECG Placement Trainer has a palpable Angle of Louis to help the user locate the correct intercostal space. This ridge on the sternum lies at the level where the second rib is attached to the sternum. After finding this landmark, move down two intercostal spaces and place V1 to the right of the sternum and V2 to the left. If these two electrodes are not placed correctly, all of the other electrode placements will be incorrect.
