Medtronic 5392 External Pacemaker - DC leakage testing
Hi all, I noticed in the Medtronic 5392 External Pacemaker Technical Manual there was a mention of performing the following tests: 1. Battery Drain Test 2. Off Current Drain (10uA maximum) 3. On Current Drain with backlight and lower screen off (5.9uA maximum when measured away from pacing peaks) I am using a Fluke Biomedical SigmaPace 1000 External Pacemaker Analyser, but I cannot work out how to perform the test using the kit. There is a jig that comes with the SigmaPace 1000 that allows for these tests on a Medtronic 5388 & 5348 external pacemaker, but the battery is a single 9V and the jig doesnt fit with the 5392 model. Any information on how to perform these tests on a Medtronic 5392 external pacemaker would be greatly appreciated. :)Reply

Hi, is it possible to change the language of the pacemaker, i cant find any menu to do so thanksReply

1. In the manual there is no requirement for sense amplitude check.

I still think it is relevent.

2. Also the old current drain test device used with the fluke sigma pace no longer works,

3. The pluse refractory period test values have changed substantially from the 5388.
