Video Tech Tip: Quick Set-up for ECG Monitoring

    To quickly and efficiently hook up our surgical patients to ECG monitoring, we first clip the ECG leads to a towel that is placed on the surgical table. The clips are attached to the towel in the proper position. After the patient is sedated and moved onto the table, the clips can quickly be attached to the animal, thereby minimizing any delay in monitoring the patient. In addition, because the clips can be easily accessed, we do not have to struggle to slide them underneath the animal or have them draped over the animal's chest.
