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 term, where ECG was first developed. 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 technology for detecting low glucose levels via electrocardiogram (ECG) using a non-invasive wearable sensor, which with the latest artificial intelligence (AI) can detect hypoglycemic events from raw ECG signals has been made by researchers from the University of Warwick.
