Portable Electrocardiograph (ECG)  Favorite




Electrocardiograph (ECG) monitors are vital tools used by healthcare providers to help identify cardiac conditions and monitor patient health. The ECG monitors the heart by measuring heart cells. The cardiac electrical vector is generated in the right atrium of the sinuatrial node (SA) and transmitted as a vector to the entire heart muscle. An ECG monitor can come in many forms, ranging from hand-held devices for remote monitoring to sophisticated patient monitoring systems used by hospitals.

In order to create a complete ECG solution, Freescale has partnered with Monebo Kinetic™ ECG Algorithm. Freescale has positioned the Monebo ECG analysis algorithm and its portfolio of more than 500 MCUs, processors and DSCs to work across a broad spectrum of applications. Freescale's pin- and software-compatible 8-bit and 32-bit MCUs offer ultra-low power consumption for enhanced battery life. This low-power operation is a key consideration for next-generation wireless and hand-held healthcare devices.
