ECG 2 explains Einthoven’s triangle. Students record Leads I and III while performing a number of tasks designed to change the rhythm of the heart. They then analyze the data and estimate the mean QRS axis and potential.
To record ECG from Leads I and III in the following conditions: lying down, sitting up, and breathing deeply while sitting.
To compare the direction of the QRS complex (+ or -) with the direction of the lead axis.
To estimate the mean ventricular potential.
To estimate the mean electrical axis of the QRS complex.
Tasks Performed by the Student
Record ECG using bipolar Leads I and III.
Lie down and relax.
Sit and relax.
Breathe in and out once in each position.
The software makes it very easy for the student to compute the ECG vectors.
Classic, clinical grid markings available for quick and easy evaluations.
See how the ECG complex changes under different conditions.
Students place markers for each component (P, Q, R, S, and T).

New series of unshielded 45 cm electrode leads with thin cable; suitable for facial EMG and other areas where lighter, shorter lead cables are required. Use for female Touchproof connectors to pinch clip connectors—connect electrodes to either a C-series amplifier or an MEC. The pinch connectors are light weight and the lead cable tinsel wire […]
The new issue of Psychophysiology has a study “Quantifying rapid changes in cardiovascular state with a moving ensemble average” using MEAP for preprocessing/analysis and BIOPAC hardware and software for data collection, display, and storage. The proof of concept study demonstrates a viable method for the adoption of ICG measures across the field of psychophysiology. MEAP (moving ensemble […]
BIOPAC provides software and hardware that allow for research teams to record and analyze respiration activity in physiological experimentation. Here are a few notable studies covering MRI, ECG, and Laser Doppler Flow measurement. fMRI & Thermal Perception: The neural mechanisms underlying thermal perception (how hot or cold we perceive the temperature to be) have not been fully […]
