ELI 230 is a 12-lead diagnostic electrocardiograph used for acquiring, viewing, and printing of adult and pediatric 12-lead ECG data. The device is optionally equipped with Welch Allyn’s VERITAS™ resting ECG interpretation algorithm with age and gender specific criteria. If this option is enabled, the VERITAS algorithm can provide an over-reading physician with a silent second opinion through diagnostic statements output on the ECG report. For additional information on the VERITAS algorithm, please refer to the Physician’s Guide to Adult and Pediatric Resting ECG Interpretation. (See Accessories.)
Supported print formats include standard 3+1, 6, or 12 channel, or Cabrera 3+1, 6, or 12 channel in automatic mode, and 3, 6, or 12 channel rhythm strip printing. During rhythm strip printing user can toggle between the various 3 or 6 channels to print. The device can operate on battery or line power.
The ELI 230 includes:
• Acquisition module
• Hospital-grade power cord
• 1 pack paper (210mm roll paper)
• User manual CD
• Accessory starter kit

Cleaning and Disinfecting the ELI 230
The ELI 230 is compatible with the following disinfectants:
• Clorox Healthcare® Bleach Germicidal Wipes (use according to instructions on product label), or
• a soft, lint-free cloth dampened with a solution of sodium hypochlorite (10% household bleach and water solution) minimum 1:500 dilution (minimum 100 ppm free chlorine) and maximum 1:10 dilution as recommended by the APIC Guidelines for Selection and Use of Disinfectants.
To clean the ELI 230:
1. Disconnect the power source.
2. Remove cables and lead wires from device before cleaning.
3. Thoroughly wipe the surface of the ELI 230 with a clean, lint-free cloth dampened with a mild detergent and water for general cleaning or use one of the above recommended agents for disinfection.
4. Dry the device with a clean, soft, dry, lint-free cloth
Prevent liquid from penetrating the device and do not attempt to clean/disinfect the device or patient cables by submerging into a liquid, autoclaving, or steam cleaning.
Do not expose cables to strong ultra-violet radiation.
Do not sterilize the device or lead wires with Ethylene Oxide (EtO) gas.
Do not immerse cable ends or lead wires; immersion can cause metal corrosion. Use caution with excess liquid as contact with metal parts may cause corrosion.
Do not use excessive drying techniques such as forced heat.
Improper cleaning products and processes can damage the device, produce brittle lead wires and cables, corrode the metal, and void the warranty. Use care and proper procedure whenever cleaning or maintaining the device.
Disposal must be in accordance with the following steps:
1. Follow cleaning and disinfection instructions per instructions in this user manual section.
2. Delete all existing data related to patients/hospital/clinic/doctor. Data backup may be performed prior to
3. Segregate material in preparation for the recycling process
• Components are to be disassembled and recycled based on type of material

Users must adhere to all federal, state, regional, and/or local laws and regulations as it pertains to the safe disposal of medical devices and accessories. If in doubt, the user of the device shall first contact Hillrom Technical Support for guidance on safe disposal protocols.
ELECTROMAGNETIC COMPATIBILITY (EMC)
Electromagnetic compatibility with surrounding devices should be assessed when using the device.
An electronic device can either generate or receive electromagnetic interference. Testing for electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) has been performed on the device according to the international standard for EMC for medical devices (IEC 60601-1-2). This IEC standard has been adopted in Europe as the European Norm (EN 60601-1-2).
The device should not be used adjacent to, or stacked on top of other equipment. If the device must be used adjacent to or stacked on top of other equipment, verify that the device operates in an acceptable manner in the configuration in which it will be used.
Fixed, portable, and mobile radio frequency communications equipment can affect the performance of medical equipment. See appropriate EMC table for recommended separation distances between the radio equipment and the device.
The use of accessories, transducers, and cables other than those specified by Welch Allyn, may result in increased emissions or decreased immunity of the equipment.
