New to Portable ECG Monitoring Devices?
From Heart Health Initiative
Portable ECG Recorders
Where it is used ?
Ultralight Portable Handheld ECG machine are like a PDA, can monitor heart rhythms at home or in a clinic and can be used as a screening tool.
Acquisition of ECG data from patients in Intensive Care Unit (ICU) following surgery is a vital part of cardiac disease detection and rehabilitation monitoring and therefore it is a standard function of ICU physiological monitors and monitoring systems.
Heart related diseases kill more than all the cancers combined. They are also called the silent killer, as you may not have any symptoms until the heart attack or you may feel discomfort sometimes, but by the time you visit the clinic, the symptoms are gone.
Monitoring your heart’s health condition is one of the vital steps towards a long and healthy life. The new generation of Handheld ECG machines, are devices with which you can record your heart’s electrical activity in just 25 seconds, view the key parameters on the LCD screen, and later print the trends in heart activity to help your physician detect CardioVascular Diseases.
What it does?
- ONLY AS A SCREENING DEVICE
- Any time and Any Place Monitoring of Heart Health
- Drug Evaluation
- Fitness Center monitoring of Rhythms.
Do not use-
- Complete Diagnostic Device for evaluation
- Patients with PACEMAKERS
- Diagnose Heart Diseases only physicians can do that
- Substitute for Regular 12 lead ECG
How does it work?
Electrical waves travel through the heart chambers to charge and trigger heartbeats. If the heart’s chambers are not synchronized, the blood will not circulate effectively, which can be a symptom or cause of CardioVascular disease.
With portable ecg recorders, you can measure and record your heart’s electrical signals as they are emitted through your body. When your thumbs are in contact with the dry electrodes, the palm-sized device is able to trace and record the micro-current your heart generates during heartbeats, generating the related heart function parameters (PR, QRS, ST).
Palm based ECG recorders are hassle-free: the LCD displays your key heart parameters (QRS, ST), blinks if they are out of range and stores up to 30 records.
