  • The ECG is not sensitive for PE, but when there are findings such as S1Q3T3 or anterior T-wave inversions, or new RBBB, then they have a (+) likelihood ratio and the S1Q3T3, or even just the T3, may help to differentiate Wellens' from PE. (blogspot.com)

  • abnormal

  • baseline
  • Numerous redundant samples are recorded during slower deflections and baseline intervals, particularly for direct cardiac measurements that include fast Purkinje deflections. (springer.com)
  • Oscillation on the ECG baseline is due to muscle tremors and may be seen even in the absence of clinically obvious shivering. (alpfmedical.info)
  • Monitoring
  • Last week at the IEEE Engineering in Medicine & Biology Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota, IMEC unveiled a new prototype cardiac monitoring system. (medgadget.com)

  • The advanced patient monitoring market includes products in the following segments: blood management and function monitors, cardiac event and function monitors, neurological event monitors, respiratory function monitors, and other advanced monitors. (researchandmarkets.com)
  • arrhythmias
  • Nurses also need to have basic knowledge of how to interpret a 12-lead ECG, particularly the recognition of ECG changes that may indicate acute cardiac injury or life-threatening arrhythmias that are likely to require immediate interventions. (healthcarelink.com.au)
  • ischemic
  • Consider a patient with ischemic symptoms whose ECG shows LBBB, with large ( let's say 40mm) S waves in the anterior leads. (blogspot.com)
  • heart
  • Fig. 1 ECG of an 87-year-old woman found with rectal temperature of 24.5 °C. The heart rate is irregular between less than 32 and 38 beats/min with no P wave. (alpfmedical.info)
  • Todays ECG instruments have placed in the hands of the veterinarian an accurate and efficient means of recording the electrical activity of the animals heart. (scribd.com)
  • Cardiac means near, around, or part of the heart and "cardiac" comes from the Greek word "cardio" meaning pertaining to the heart. (dimetekus.com)
  • An electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) is a medical diagnostic device which graphically records the electrical activity of the muscles of the heart. (dimetekus.com)
  • Unlike,the previous generation of ECG/EKG devices which required the help of well trained ECG/EKG professional to help in setting up of the device and measuring the ECG/EKG,the current generation of devices are portable and they require just the finger tips of the user to measure the electrical activity of the heart. (dimetekus.com)
  • The next time someone needs their heart monitored, it is of the essence to look into a mobile cardiac monitor simply because it is more cost effective and more productive in terms of the results that it can provide. (dimetekus.com)
  • DIMETEK Heart Monitor , a single-channel ECG (electrocardiogram) recorder, previously available by prescription only. (dimetekus.com)
  • The DIMETEK Heart Monitor is the only FDA-cleared mobile ECG recorder that supports both iPhone and Android smartphones. (dimetekus.com)
  • Stress tests use ECG to assess how the heart functions under the stress of exercise and are routine when symptoms are present. (dimetekus.com)
  • Complex
  • While electrical alternans is frequently thought of in association with pericardial effusion , it should be noted that not all pericardial effusions cause electrical alternans, and that total electrical alternans (involving the p wave , QRS complex and the T wave ) is present in just 5-10% of cases of cardiac tamponade . (wikidoc.org)
