Accurate Holter Monitoring & Effective Skin Prep

Johns Hopkins Medicine provides a good overview of Holter Moniroeing:

“The Holter monitor is a type of electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) used to monitor the ECG tracing continuously for a period of 24 hours or longer. A standard or “resting” ECG is one of the simplest and fastest procedures used to evaluate the heart. Electrodes (small, plastic patches) are placed at certain locations on the chest and abdomen. When the electrodes are connected to an ECG machine by lead wires, the electrical activity of the heart is measured, interpreted, and printed out for the doctor’s information and further interpretation.”

When conducting Holter Monitoring, it is important to prep the patient’s skin and then apply the proper electrodes. Not all electrodes are created equal. Electrodes that ensure excellent tracing and reliable adhesion during prolonged ECG recording procedures should be used. One such electrode is the SKINTACT #T-VO01 ECG Holter Electrode.

skintact

The off set design on the SKINTACT #T-VO01 ECG Holter Electrode reduces motion artifacts to a minimum. Microporous tape backing leaves no residue on skin or clothing. Lift tab on the side. In contrast to ECG electrodes with lift tab on the top, sweat cannot gather under the tab and get underneath SKINTACT T-VO01’s adhesive area. The lift tab on the side thus maintains the electrode’s secure adhesion.

SKINTACT T-VO01 is the ideal Holter ECG electrode. It can be used up to 72 hours. Patient comfort is guaranteed even over longer periods due to the thin and breathable microporous tape backing.

Although the adhesion and backing on this electrode goes a long way toward providing accurate readings, it will be all for naught if the electrode is placed directly on a hairy chest

without prepping the skin.

We offer some great skin prep products such as PrepTrode – Gentle Conductive Electrode Skin Preparation Spray.

Go Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month!

One of our employees / Danlee Family Members Niki Snyder recently rode her bike in the Carol M Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund Ride. Personally she was able to raise $800 for the fight against Breast Cancer and was one of the top fundraisers! The ride as a whole raised $16,000 making a great impact in the community. Here’s a photo of Nikki:

Flu Season a busy time for Health Care Providers

Here in Danlee’s Headquarters, a number of our staff members are out sick with the flu, a cold, or even Pneumonia. It’s that time of year and it’s certainly going around!

Every year at this time we see a big surge in orders of needles, syringes, sharps containers, disinfectant, gloves, face/eye protection items and more.

Oftentimes medical offices wait until the last minute to order these items, making it even more difficult to get them as suppliers like Danlee begin to run low.

According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), flu season in the US most commonly peaks between December and February, but it can begin as early as October.

Well, October is hear and now is the time to order needles, syringes and more! To see what we have available and place your order, Click Here!
