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).

The Mobita 32-Channel EEG recording system was used in research examining if physiological data can be used to predict truly random events that correspond to perceptual stimuli. Baumgart, et al. from the University of California Santa Barbara utilized a quantum random number generator (qRNG) to choose from three randomized conditions: light, sound, and no stimulus. […]
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 in monitoring respiration and cardiovascular activity. The coupling between peripheral microcirculation and slow breathing: The purpose of this study was to investigate the coupling of breathing movements and microcirculatory blood […]
