12-Lead ECG Recordings

To record a continuous 12-lead ECG, use a WT100C Wilson Terminal to create a virtual reference electrode when measuring the transverse plane (i.e., precordial) ECG components [V1, V2, V3, V4, V5, V6]. The virtual reference is created by the summation of the Right Arm (RA), Left Arm (LA) and Left Leg (LL) electrode leads. See Application Note 206 for guidelines. If you only want to record short segments of the precordial leads, there is also a TSD155C Multi-Lead ECG Cable that interfaces with three ECG100C amplifiers.

It is also possible to record a continuous 12-Lead ECG from a mobile subject with the Mobita® system. The Mobita system will record each of the 12-Leads and permit the simultaneous recording of other physiological signals such as: EMG, EEG, EGG, and EOG. The Mobita system will telemeter the data back to a recording computer running AcqKnowledge or log the data for later download.

This is one of many ADVANCED FEATURES for the selected Application. Scroll down for hardware options.

To record a 12-lead ECG, eight ECG100C amplifiers are required. Two of the amplifiers can record Leads I, II, III, aVR, aVL, and aVF. Apply the Wilson Terminal (WT100C) to these amplifiers to generate a virtual reference for the six remaining amplifiers, which are assigned the precordial chest leads (V1-V6). Alternatively, users can obtain a 12-lead recording with three ECG100C modules and the low-cost TSD155C multi-lead ECG cable. This cost-effective option displays Leads I, II, III, aVR, aVL, and aVF simultaneously, plus one chest lead. Move the chest lead from one precordial location to the next to record a complete 12-lead ECG.
