Terrain Biomedical – EKG Monitors and ECG Monitors

Electrocardiogram (EKG or ECG) is simply a form of testing to check for problems with the electrical activities of the patient’s heart. An EKG displays the heart’s electrical activities as basic line tracings upon paper. Terrain Biomedical sells, services and supports most any major make and model of EKG monitor on the marketplace today. With our calibrated testing units, we’ve been providing our valued clients with expertly restored EKG machines appropriate for use in practically any sort of clinical environment.

A Look at Wireless and Conventional EKG Machines

Wireless technologies have been implemented to many areas of daily life, and the medical field is certainly no exception. Wireless EKG monitors are available to offer more benefits to both doctors and their patients. In fact, the advantages are more considerable than some may realize. Precision and patient comfort are two of the key characteristics associated with the use of wireless technologies in the realm of medicine.

Electrocardiography or EKG monitors are mainly used to gauge the activity of the heart during a specified amount of time. The examination provides medical practitioners with helpful information regarding potential illnesses or risky cardio conditions. Obtaining truly accurate measures is essential
particularly for patients who may have a history of heart disease.

Among the main advantages of wireless EKG monitors is their enhanced accuracy. Research and testing has already shown that wireless technologies offer improved performance. Wires that are used in conventional machines risk getting tangled and have a potential to influence the reading. The lack of wiring boosts accuracy because there’s no component that could potentially interfere with heart activity measures. Also, the absence of wires makes it difficult for a patient to displace the electrodes from sudden arm movements. The electrodes simply stay secured in the right position until the exam concludes. Wireless EKG monitors tend to be more user-friendly than conventional machinery in some cases. Placement of the electrodes upon the patient’s is also easy and efficient.

The electrodes of a wireless EKG machine are placed upon a plastic strip. This strip is then attached to the patient’s chest so the machine can begin tracking the heart’s activity. The strip ends in a transmitter that directs information to the primary unit of the machine.

Wireless EKG electrodes are generally more comfortable and not very intrusive when compared to the wiring that would otherwise encircle the upper body of a patient.

The main section of a wireless EKG monitor can be attached to the belt of a patient or it can be positioned upon a table. These machines are typically quite easy to use. Placement is simple, wearing one is relatively comfortable and the primary unit does not have to be close to the patient’s body. All these benefits make wireless EKG machines a preferred choice among many medical teams and patients who need to have their heart rate monitored regularly.

Naturally, safety is a main consideration as well with respect to innovative medical technology. Because the electrodes of a wireless EKG monitor are disposable, it minimizes the chances of an infection developing or transmitting an ailment from one patient to another.
