  • A Critical Review of Basic Errors in the Fundamentals of Electrocardiography. Pomerance, Joseph B. // Angiology;May1980, Vol. 31 Issue 5, p293 

    The article presents a critical review of basic errors in the fundamentals of electrocardiography. Errors and misconceptions have been compounded and hidden by further fallacies until they make no sense to anyone with an inquisitive mind, although to the uninitiated they may sound plausible. In...

    A modular wireless integration of a three-axis accelerometer and a three-lead ECG was designed and tested as a system to monitor activities of daily living. The module has low power requirements, robust sensing, and high-fidelity transmission. The power unit was embedded. The system was tested...

  • What Happened in the Past? Grauer, Ken // Internal Medicine Alert;3/15/2009, Vol. 31 Issue 5, p40 

    The article presents an interpretation of an electrocardiogram (ECG) tracing and explains the previous condition of a patient based on the ECG result. It cites that the rhythm of the ECG tracing depicts a sinus bradycardia with a heart rate of below 50 having a normal PR interval but a widened...

They outline basic information on generation of cardiac electrical currents, how these currents produce...

  • Utility of high and standard right precordial leads during ajmaline testing for the diagnosis of Brugada syndrome. Govindan, Malini; Batchvarov, Velislav N.; Raju, Hariharan; Shanmugam, Nesan; Bizrah, Mukhtar; Bastiaenen, Rachael; Kiotsekoglou, Anatoli; Camm, John; Behr, Elijah R. // Heart;Dec2010, Vol. 96 Issue 23, p1904 

    Aims The authors sought to assess the value of the high right precordial leads (RPL) to detect the Type I Brugada ECG pattern in patients suspected of carrying Brugada syndrome (BrS). Methods Ajmaline testing using 15-lead ECGs was performed in 183 patients suspected of carrying BrS. Standard...
