Every patient deserves a clean start. Contamination of reusable electrocardiogram (ECG) lead wires is common. Cleaned, ready-to-use ECG leads have been linked to outbreaks of healthcare-associated infections (HAIs). This infographic provides an overview of research related to ECG lead wire contamination risk, a VRE outbreak caused by reusable ECG leads, and the clinical and economic burden of VRE within the acute care setting.

The Kendall™ DL Cable and Lead Wire System has been designed for single patient use — to help your hospital reduce the risk of cross-contamination.
