The heart is a muscle formed in a way that allows it to act as a pump for blood, when the heart contracts under command from an electrical stimulus in the electroconduction system.
The heart pumps blood when the muscle cells making up the heart wall contract, generating their action potential. This potential creates electrical currents that spread from the heart throughout the body. The spreding electrical currents create differences in electrical potential between various locations in the body, and these potentials can be detected and recorded though surface electrodes attached to the skin. The waveform produced by these biopotentials is called the eletrocardiogram ECG that is a written record (Graph) of the cardiac leectrical potential waveform.

Using an EKG allows doctors to measure the relative voltage of these impulses at various positions in the heart. Electrocardiograms are possible because the body is a good conductor of electricity. When an electrical potential is generated in a section of the heart, an electrical current is conducted to the body surface in a specific area. Electrodes attached the body in these areas enable the measurement of these currents. On the handheld EKG machine, when your thumbs are in contact with the dry electrodes, the palm-sized device is able to trace and record the micro-current your heart generates during heartbeats, generating the related heart function parameters (PR, QRS, ST).

I have EKG machine GE MAC 1200. I change the paper now it is not printing with new paper. What should I do?


Our EKG machines at work have specific paper that will only work with them, are you using the same type as before? Also, it is possible to put the paper in upside down and it will not print on that side. Have you tried to turn the paper around? Good luck

Lower half or EKG would not print properly


You should purchase a printer kit. This is a common problem I have encoutntered on this machine and this machine is identical to the Seca CT6I. I have ordered the printer kit from Seca in the UK, the part number is 9740490024 at a cost of £70. It is a straightforward repair.

EKG Machine


3 lead machines are designed to monitor the cardiac rhythm cycle, in 3 of the 12 primary leads. An attempt to use this limited information as a true diagnostic tool would be incomplete and perhaps misleading.

A full 12-lead machine is diagnostic, and looks at the elecrical information from all sides ("walls", ie anterior, septal, inferior, lateral, posterior) of the heart and gives detailed information regarding ischemia and or infarction of the cardiac muscle, electrical conduction system function, electrical axis, chamber enlargement, drug effects, and more.

Hope this helps.

I ahve a schiller welch allen EKG machine, and now it only prints


If it stops printing completely in the middle of doing the print, it is because the battery is bad and needs to be replaced.
If it only prints some of the leads but it does print the full report it is because you have the leads mixed up (Wrong spot on the patient) or the leads are mislabeled or some of the clips or electrodes are bad.
I can fix these. Let me know if you need help.

Recently, the USA government approved the first pocket-sized EKG machine, so small that it promises easier, faster heart measurements in ambulances, the emergency room - even a possible heart attack victim's bedroom. This devices are already avaliable on special stores and on the internet and usually reffered to as "handheld EKG machine". The most common one is called "ReadMyHeart".
