Lifepack 15

  1. 1. Medical Staff Self Directed Learning Package Lifepak 15
  2. 2. Introduction <ul><ul><li>ASNSW has replaced the Zoll series of monitor defibrillators with the Lifepack 12 and 15. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Greater Sydney HEMS has introduced LP 15s with capnography and invasive pressure monitoring channels. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>This has come at significant cost and servicing benefits, and allows familiarity and uniformity across the whole ambulance service </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. ASNSW training packages <ul><ul><li>103.5.1 through 103.5.4 detail important aspects of the use of the Lifepack, and you must familiarise yourselves with these documents . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>These have been previously distributed, and are available on the intranet. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Specific details relevant to the Greater Sydney HEMS are included here. </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Daily checks <ul><ul><li>Check the batteries’ power level: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>if less than 3 bars – replace. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The machine performs an automatic self test at 0300 every day, with a printout. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>A daily user check should be performed, and the printout attached to the daily check-sheet (to be confirmed). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If a fault is found the device should be off-lined and referred to the equipment officer for inspection and service. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The device, consumables and cables should be visually inspected for presence and damage. </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Batteries <ul><ul><li>The Li Ion batteries are low maintenance and do not require regular rotation or cycling. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Power loss with no use is 1% per month. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The device has an automatic battery drain program that will diminish one battery to 20%, then switch to the second, and revert to the original when the 2 nd reaches 20%. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>2 fully charged batteries will provide: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>340 mins monitoring. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>320 mins pacing. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>400 360J Shocks. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>After low batt (both) warning: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Minimum 12 mins monitoring. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>10 min pacing </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>6 DC shocks. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It is recommended to take spare batteries on projected extended missions. We don’t have external power at this stage (likely retrofit in future). </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Weight & Stowage <ul><ul><li>Fully loaded 8.6kg: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Zoll – 8.7kg </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The device will be stowed in the same positions as the ZOLL, with regard to final CHC directives. </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Pulse Oximeter <ul><ul><li>Contains “Massimo” pulse ox technology to minimise interference. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sensitivity can be increased in low perfusion states – (select SpO2 using speed dial) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Defaulted to normal sensitivity to minimise artefact. </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. Display <ul><ul><li>Default Waveforms set to: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>ECG lead II </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Pulse Ox plethysmograph. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Capnograph </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>(Note general ASNSW monitors set to ECG II, III, aVf) </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>These can be altered using the speed dial. </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Event log & markers <ul><ul><li>We have added RSI specific events: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Ketamine, Sux, Midaz, Thio, Vec. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>These are in addition to the pre-set events. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The previous 150 cases are automatically stored and can be retrieved, and printed out or downloaded to a computer. </li></ul></ul>
  10. 10. Leads and Cables <ul><ul><li>The device is to remain set up with: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>ECG limb leads. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Pulse Ox. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>NIBP cuff (adult). </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The ET CO 2 is kept in a sealed and separate package (it is the same as the old Nellcors). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The additional chest leads (for full 12 lead ECG) are available, but are not routinely attached to the monitor. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The IBP cable or Octopus is not kept with the LP15, but remains with the interhospital pack. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>If 2 patient transfers occur the spare IBP lead from the pack should be utilised. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Conclusion <ul><ul><li>Please make yourselves familiar with the operation: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Make use of the LP 15 in scenarios </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Use the simulator module </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Have the SRC or Pete Leopold or Simon Harper assist in demonstrating the functions. </li></ul></ul></ul>
