ECG 1 introduces the electrocardiograph and the recording of the hearts electrical signal. Students learn about Lead II ECG recording and the components of the ECG complex. They also learn to correlate the electrical events of the ECG (P, Q, R, S, and T components) with the mechanical events of the cardiac cycle. After performing a number of tasks designed to promote changes in the ECG complex, students analyze their own ECG recording.
To become familiar with the electrocardiograph as a primary tool for evaluating electrical events within the heart.
To observe rate and rhythm changes in the ECG associated with body position and breathing.
Tasks Performed by the Student
Lie down and relax.
Take five deep breaths.
Perform a physical exercise to increase heart rate.
Relax while heart rate returns to normal.
Rate and ECG signals can be overlapped for easy interpretation of the data.
The baseline can be adjusted for precise analysis and printing.
Zoom in for a closer look at an individual ECG complex.
See how the ECG complex changes under different conditions.
Convenient electrode placement (wrists and ankles).
