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. 

 A new study found that differences between a person's age in years and his or her biological age, as predicted by an artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled EKG, can provide measurable insights into health and longevity.

HeartSciences has been developing a new type of ECG system called Wavelet ECG that may offer a new way of looking at the heart. The MyoVista system uses continuous wavelet transform (CWT) signal processing to provide new frequency and energy information to detect cardiac relaxation abnormalities associated with left ventricular diastolic dysfunction commonly associated with hypertension, diabetes, valvular disease, ischemia, and reduced systolic function. Artificial intelligence is used to read the exam.
