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.
