  • Causa
    The b20, b30 and b40 patient monitors set the ecg filter setting incorrectly if the monitor starts with impedance respiration set in the on position. instead of the user selected filter, an additional 0.5 hz high pass filter is used. the additional 0.5 hz high pass filter causes changes to the ecg waveform morphology and incorrect display of st values. the st-elevation measurement can be under estimated in this situation and treatment of the patient can be delayed.Please note that there is no issue when the monitor starts with impedance respiration set in the off position.
