Preparing the Skin & Applying the Patches

Try to take care in preparing the patient’s skin for application of the adhesive skin patches (electrodes). Good skin preparation means better ECG signal traces that in turn are easier for the doctor to review and evaluate. Advise the patient to change their electrodes every two days. When re-applied, change their location slightly to prevent skin irritation. If the patient complains of skin irritation, ask them to call Medicomp Patient Support at 800-234-3278, ext. 2370. Alternative Patches may be available to reduce irritation.

1. Choose areas of the chest that are flat and not very muscular. Avoid skin folds or creases, irritated skin or scars.

2. Shave areas with hair using the skin patch (electrode) as a guide for the size of the area to shave. This insures good contact and makes electrode removal easier.

3. Wash each site well with PLAIN soap and water. (You should not use soap that contains lotion or oil.) Dry thoroughly.

4. Snap the wires onto the electrodes while they are still attached to the strip of plastic backing.

5. One by one, peel each electrode from the backing and apply it to the chest, using the placement in the illustrations.
