Although there are a variety of different types of ECG machines in terms of functionality, shape, size, they all work basically on the same principle. They monitor the heart function of patients in help diagnose and detect heart abnormalities. Different machines sometimes monitor, record, and output different types of data and in different ways.
Some of the types of ECG/EKG machines cardiology medical professionals required include:
Standard 12-Lead ECG Machine
The standard ECG machine used in numerous clinical environments today is the 12-lead ECG machine. It gives the user 12 separate views of the heart taken at various angles. These various views enable doctors to analyze the necessary information to perform an accurate diagnosis of the patient’s heart condition. With this machine, electrodes are placed on the chest, legs, and arms to obtain the electrical impulse results, which are then displayed on an LCD screen or sent for output to a printer.
12-Lead ECG Machine with Spirometry
Spirometry is a medical test used to diagnose conditions such as COPD, asthma, and other breathing problems. It evaluates the function of the lungs by measuring the volume of air inhaled and exhaled, and how fast the patient exhales. Certain ECG machines include or can be equipped with spirometry instrumentation.
Stress ECG Machines
Stress tests are often effective at detecting heart problems or heart disease. They are often conducted while the patient is pedaling on a stationary bike or walking on a treadmill. ECG machines are often involved in these tests.
Choosing an ECG machine with the right configurations, capabilities, and options is important.
