ANSI/AAMI EC53:2013 (R2020)

ECG trunk cables and patient leadwires

The objective of this standard is to allow ECG TRUNK CABLES and PATIENT LEADWIRES to be interchanged between ECG DEVICES with isolated PATIENT connections by establishing a common interface between the TRUNK CABLE and the PATIENT LEADWIRE connectors. Performance and safety criteria for TRUNK CABLES and PATIENT LEADWIRES used with isolated PATIENT connectors are also specified. This standard's original scope related to TRUNK CABLES and PATIENT LEADWIRES used with cardiac monitors. The scope was extended to include PATIENT LEADWIRES used with other ECG DEVICES including diagnostic electrocardiographs, ambulatory ECG (Holter) recorders/event recorders and ECG telemetry.
