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. 

Now cleared by the FDA, PocketECG CRS is a new mobile cardiac rehabilitation system designed to provide high-quality ECG monitoring and automated arrhythmia detection during rehabilitation training. The device monitors a patient's heart rhythm and heart rate to safely guide the intensity and duration of rehabilitation exercises in real-time.

The Medicalgorithmics PocketECG Holter monitor offers real-time, remote, wireless ECG recording and tracking.

The Medicalgorithmics PocketECG Holter monitor offers real-time, remote, wireless ECG recording and tracking. Real-time data review may be able to help diagnose an arrhythmia quickly, reducing the amount of time the patient needs to be monitored. Also, 24/7 data offers a more complete picture of the patient's health, rather than fragments of data from older Holter and event monitor systems.
