- Comparing the ECG to the waveform produced by the Heart Rate Sensor
- Comparing the ECG of a rested heart to an exercised heart
- What happens to the ECG trace if a sensor lead location is changed
- Understand the meaning and relationships of the PQRST waveforms
- Investigate the effect of mild stimulants (caffeine)
As the average heartbeat cycle is typically 0.7 – 0.9 seconds, data needs to be collected with an SmartSense unit capable of fast logging.
The ECG sensor has 3 sensor leads. The change in electrical energy is detected by two leads and referenced to a ground signal. The changes in energy are displayed as a waveform. As the electrical changes being detected are very small and prone to disturbance, it is vital that the test subject is relaxed, and motionless.
Please note that this product is designed for demonstration of the ECG waveform, it is not designed or intended to be used for medical diagnosis.
Works with the following Dataloggers:
VHub4 and VHub8
- 200 to 4,000µV
Pack of 100 disposable ECG electrode patches
The sensor is supplied with a pack of 100 E.C.G. electrode patches for attaching to the test subject’s skin. The electrode patches are disposable silver/silver chloride hypoallergenic gel on a foil backing. Replacement packs of patches are available.
