As a non-invasive yet most valuable diagnostic tool, the 10-lead ECG records the heart’s electrical activity as waveforms.
When interpreted accurately, an ECG can detect and monitor a host of heart conditions — from arrhythmias to coronary heart disease to electrolyte imbalance.
Since the first telecardiogram recorded in 1903, huge strides have been made in the recording and interpretation of ECG. Today, the 10-Lead ECG remains a standard diagnostic tool among paramedics, EMTs, and hospital staff.
A 10-lead ECG paints a complete picture of the heart’s electrical activity by recording information through 10 different perspectives. Think of it as 10 different points of view of an object woven together to create a cohesive story — the ECG interpretation.
These 10 views are collected by placing electrodes or small, sticky patches on the chest (precordial), wrists, and ankles. These electrodes are connected to a machine that registers the heart’s electrical activity
The main purpose of the 10-lead ECG is to screen patients for possible cardiac ischemia. It helps EMS and hospital staff to quickly identify patients who have STEMI (ST elevation myocardial infarction or in other words, heart attack) and perform appropriate medical intervention based on initial readings. integrated cable, strong in design, well shielded, new gold plated pins, shiny, high quality all molded connector, superior quality ECG cable, superior material, handicrafts, design, overwhelming all our competitors different screw length is available
