The ER910/920 and ER910/920 AF Event Monitors are battery operated,
solid state, looping event recorders designed to record symptomatic heart
arrhythmias. Event recording is activated by the patient or by automatic
event detection.
The ER910 (1 channel) and ER920 (2 channel) event monitors provide
up to 30 minutes of total recording time and will operate as a simple
looping event recorder for a minimum of 30 days with two AAA
Alkaline batteries. They offer multiple programmed recording options
allowing the physician to determine their own parameters. Selectable
parameters include number of events, pre-event time, post-event time,
audible operation, pacemaker detection, and arrhythmia detection.
The ER910/920 Event Monitors are enhanced with Arrhythmia Detection
firmware which will capture and automatically record asymptomatic,
infrequent, or elusive heart arrhythmia events such as Bradycardia,
Tachycardia, and Pause. The ER910/920 AF includes all of these
features and in addition, Atrial Fibrillation.
Once an event is recorded, patients may transmit their ECG
transtelephonically.
Indications for Use
The device is indicated for diagnostic evaluation of patients who
experience transient symptoms such as; dizziness, palpitations, syncope,
or chest pain. The device is intended to record cardiac activity associated
with these infrequent and transient symptoms. Once data is recorded,
patients transmit the recorded ECG data over the telephone or directly to
a host PC for review by a licensed physician.
Precautions
A. Patient leads must be removed from electrodes before defibrillation.
B. Observe local laws for disposal of alkaline batteries.
C. Do not leave the batteries in the Monitor when it is not in use.
Damage from corrosion could result.
D. Patient should be instructed to avoid close proximity to heavy
electrical equipment or other sources of electromagnetic
interference.
E. Use of rechargeable batteries is not recommended.
F. Do not use cellular phone to transmit patient data.
G. Monitor is not for infant use.
H. No automatic analysis algorithm can replace data review by a
qualified physician. Review and confirmation of analysis results is
required.

Setup Steps
Monitor Components
This manual is designed to allow a technician to follow the instructions
page by page to setup the ER910/920 and ER910/920 AF Monitor. Here
is the general layout:
1. Connect leads and electrodes to patient.
2. Prepare Monitor for recording.
A. Choose/Setup program you want to use.
B. Erase all previous events.
3. Connect Patient Cable to Monitor.
Electrode Application and Placement
Batteries
Two 1.5V AAA Alkaline. Insert into battery
compartment observing polarity symbols.
Belt clip
To attach, snap the Monitor into the belt clip with
Patient Cable oriented up and the display facing out.
Necklace
To attach, remove battery cover, insert necklace T’s
into slots in case. Replace battery cover.
To adjust, move plastic slip rings up or down to keep
leads together. To lengthen, pull leads apart.
Patient Cable
3
For each electrode lead wire:
1. Snap the electrode onto the lead wire.
2. Remove the protective backing from the adhesive side of the
electrode.
3. Apply the electrode to the patient’s skin per Electrode Placement
diagram in this manual or as instructed by the physician.
Notes:
A. You must use a Patient Cable that the Monitor is able to
recognize. As an example, you cannot use a 2 channel cable
with a 1 channel Monitor.
B. It is recommended that trained medical personnel instruct the
patient in the proper application of electrodes.
C. Use good quality long term electrodes. Braemar recommends
the use of low impedance Holter electrodes. Instruct patient to
apply fresh electrodes regularly. (Usually on a daily basis.)
D. Proper preparation of the patient's skin is absolutely essential
for obtaining a quality ECG recording. The skin surface where
the electrodes will be placed should be cleaned with alcohol,
allowed to dry, and abraded.
E. Any loose electrode needs to be replaced.

1.
General setup: Remove the Patient Cable if it is connected to
the Monitor. Open the battery compartment by sliding battery door
downward. Install two fresh AAA Alkaline batteries. Observe
proper battery polarity. The Monitor will sound rising tones after
completion of power up. After a few seconds, the display will show
the battery level and number of events stored.
The battery level should be near 100%. The number of events stored
does not matter at this point.
2.
Enter programming mode:
A. Push and hold both program buttons on the front of the Monitor
for two seconds until an audible tone is heard.
B. The Monitor will then display an information screen. Press the
RECORD/SEND button to get to the programming mode

General notes:
A. To leave the programming mode without saving your
changes, remove the batteries.
B. If you enter the programming mode, events stored in
the Monitor are always erased when the Monitor
restarts and a Patient Cable is connected.
C. All previously stored events and settings are erased
when you select EXIT on the last programming screen.
D. The Monitor always highlights the DEFAULT option when
entering programming mode even if the CUSTOM option
was last used. This is only visual. Whatever option was
used for a previous recording will continue to be used.

For transmitters rated at a maximum output power not listed above,
the recommended separation distance d in metres (m) can be
estimated using the equation applicable to the frequency of the
transmitter, where P is the maximum output power rating of the
transmitter in watts (W) according to the transmitter manufacturer.
NOTE1: At 80 MHz and 800 MHz, the separation distance for the
higher frequency range applies.
NOTE 2: These guidelines may not apply in all situations.
Electromagnetic propagation is affected by absorption and reflection
from structures, objects and people.
