To ensure the optimal use of your Sanibel disposable tab or snap electrodes, please observe the following:

  • Ensure that the skin is clean and dry before placing the electrode.
    • It is recommended to use an alcohol wipe or similar to clean the skin prior to electrode placement.
    • If your patient’s skin is sweaty or very oily, an alternative electrode with stronger adhesion, PEG15 electrodes (part number 8500060), is recommended for use.
  • When applying electrodes to the skin, press down firmly on the entire electrode surface to improve adhesion.
  • Use a small amount of conductive electrode gel to improve impedances, if required.
  • Use pinch or button cables for snap electrodes and alligator cables for tab electrodes.
  • Electrode adhesion time is limited to a maximum of 1 hour.
  • Store unused electrodes in unopened pouches at temperatures 5°-27° C / 40°-80° F.
  • Use before the expiry date printed on the pouch.
