What Are ECG Electrodes and How to Use Them

An electrocardiogram, referred to as an ECG, is a relatively simple and quick test to check the heart. During this test, small, plastic patches called electrodes are attached to certain locations on the arms, chest, and legs. Lead wires connect the ECG machine to the electrodes. From these signals, the electrical activity of the heart is recorded, measured, evaluated, and printed out. An electrocardiogram does not send electrical current into the body. At Danlee Medical Products, Inc., we offer an extensive array of ECG electrodes for use in conjunction with ECG machines. Continue reading

What Are ECG Electrodes and Where Do You Place Them?

Capturing accurate EKG/ECG signal is vital for researchers and medical professionals in order to obtain accurate knowledge and medical diagnosis and results. ECG examines the electrical activity of the heart produced during by myocardial contraction and relaxation. This activity is measured by electrodes placed on certain areas of the chest. The signals produced indicate the heart’s rate and heart rate variability, along with arrhythmia, waveform morphology, and other heart activity and functions. At Danlee Medical Products, Inc., we offer a selection of ECG electrodes for sale required by cardiology professionals.

Does Placement of EKG Electrodes Affect Electrocautery Interference?

Electrocardiographic monitoring on a continuous basis is a standard aspect of care in intensive care units and operating rooms. These environments have gradually been filled with more electronic devices for patient care. Due to this trend, the risk of electrical interference between indifference devices has increased. If an electrocardiogram (EKG) is to be interpreted accurately, it must be interpreted as a level of quality that is free from distortion. Even though the reliability of most medical devices has increased significantly due to technological advancement, interference to the electrocardiogram is still a potential issue. At Danlee Medical Products, Inc., we offer a wide range of EKG electrodes for patient care needs. Continue reading
