When we think of a New Year, we often start with our proverbial list
of New Year's resolutions. Often starting with weight loss goals as a result
of all the December holiday parties, (including the Buffalo Wings of course!) they
typically also include a new attitude for a healthier life style. While we are frequently
reminded that February is national Heart Smart month, we think the first of the Year
is no better time to start! Every month should be Heart Smart month. Heart Smart
is a way of life, and certainly shouldn't be limited to one month a year. We kept that
in mind when we designed the ECG1!
Not only will building an actual ECG be a thrill, but you'll get hands-on knowledge of
the relationship between electrical activity and the human body. Each time the
human heart beats, the heart muscle causes small electrical changes across your
skin. By monitoring and amplifying these changes, the ECG1C detects the heartbeat
and allows you to accurately display it, and hear it, giving you a window into the
inner workings of the human heart and body!
Use the ECG1C to astound your physician with your knowledge of ECG/EKG systems. Enjoy learning about the
inner workings of the heart while, at the same time, covering the stage-by-stage electronic circuit theory used in
the kit to monitor it. The three probe wire pick-ups allow for easy application and experimentation without the
cumbersome harness normally associated with ECG monitors.
The documentation with the ECG1C covers everything from the circuit description of the kit to the circuit description of the heart! Multiple "beat" indicators include a bright front panel LED that flashes with the actions of the
heart along with an adjustable level audio speaker output that supports both mono and stereo hook-ups. In
addition, a monitor output is provided to connect to any standard oscilloscope to view the traditional style
ECG/EKG waveforms just like you see in a real ER or on one of the medical TV shows!
On a personal note... See the display to the left? That’s me! In between writing
this montly ad copy, catalog copy, and plethora of other tasks here, I noticed
some skipped beats in my pulse! An immediate cardiac check found I had something called Trigeminy, or PVCs that occur at intervals of 2 normal beats to one
PVC! And I saw it with our ECG1 kit!
The fully adjustable gain control on the front panel allows the user to custom tune the differential signal picked up by the probes giving you a perfect reading and display every time!
10 hospital grade re-usable probe patches are included together with the matching custom
case set shown. Additional patches are available in 10-packs. Operates on a standard 9VDC
battery (not included) for safe and simple operation. Note, while the ECG1C professionally
monitors and displays your heart rhythms and functions, it is intended for hobbyist usage
only. If you experience any cardiac symptoms, seek proper medical help immediately!
