ECG

This channel includes news and new technology innovations ECG, electrocardiogram systems. These systems are also referred to as EKG, or eletrokardiogram from the original German where ECG was first developed. Electrocardiographs record the heart's electrical activity, recorded with a set of wire electrodes placed in the chest and back.  The electrical impulses and caused by heart muscle depolarizing during each heartbeat. The channel includes news on standard diagnostic ECG systems, ECG management systems, defibrillator-monitors, Holter technology, and remote and wearable ECG patient monitoring.

In the past decade there has been a proliferation of clinical-grade wearable monitors and implantable devices such as pacemakers, ICDs, implantable cardiac monitors, and new pacemaker-like devices that can control hypertension. In the near future, these devices will be tied into a body-wide internet of things for specific patients that can transmit patient data to clinicians wirelessly to enable an integrated, more robust form of telecardiology and telemedicine.
