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. 

One innovation in ECG is its use in the customer wearable market, which will tie more closely into the clinical world either with using the data to triage patients and/or patients seeking medical attention prior to acute symptoms appearing.
