- ECG (EKG) Paper.

ECG Paper.

The output of an ECG recorder is a tracing on a graph or a standard  paper  traveling at a rate of 25 mm/s.

This paper is divided into large squares and each large square is divided into small squares
Time is represented on the x-axis, and voltage, or amplitude is represented on the y-axis.

Look at the previous  picture describing the time and voltage for a traditional ECG tracing. Notice, for example, how one small 1 mm x 1 mm square represents  0.04 seconds in time and 0.1 millivolts in amplitude.

The electrical activity detected by the electrocardiogram machine is measured in millivolts.
Machines are calibrated so that a signal with amplitude of 1 mv moves the recording stylus vertically 1cm or 2 large squares.  


Look for the baseline. It is the line that would be perfectly straight and horizontal if not for those vertical deflections. This is called the isoelectric line.

The isoelectric line is considered to have an amplitude of zero. Anything above the isoelectric line is "positive" deflection; below the line is "negative" deflection.

The direction of the deflection on the electrocardiogram depends on whether the electrical impulse is travelling towards or away from a detecting electrode.

By convention, an electrical impulse travelling directly towards the electrode produces an upright (“positive”) deflection relative to the isoelectric baseline, whereas an impulse moving directly away from an electrode produces a downward (“negative”) deflection relative to thebaseline.

When the wave of depolarisation is at right angles to the lead, an equiphasic deflection is produced.

  16. I was never sure what people are seeing when looking at the ECG. Of course all cardiology devices in medical device directory looks scary to me but now at least I understand how should I interpret ECG! It's very useful because a lot of doctors don't understand how in fact this works and what do they see - they just know that q is for infarction and something else is for some kind of blockage f.e. Thanks!

  24. Hello everyone, I was browsing the internet and I saw a lots of wrong
    quotes concerning the illuminati society, I felt bad about it, I want to let you all know few things about the illuminati society. First, I joined the illuminati society through the help of an agent someone introduced me to online, after years of determination to be a member. Being a member of the illuminati your wealth is guarantee, you will be protected, famous, powerful. All these they will give you, one thing I want to correct is that the illuminati don't pay members monthly salaries, if you are newly initiated they will give you the seed of wealth and bless you with wisdom, power, influence e.t.c you need to be successful the seed of wealth is the only money the illuminati society give to their member, with this you can start anything with the money and you will be successful. Another point to note is that, the society doesn't request for registration fee and have special blessing for politicians and superstars. Being an illuminati member is a personal decision, the society don't force or plead with people to join them.
     I joined because I want to, no one forced me and am very happy to be a member today because they have contributed greatly to my life by making me one of the leading business women in the world. If you are interested in joining the illuminati society call/WhatsApp our headquarter Texas +14434187380 or Contact Aydin Baris via Email: templeofthebrotherhood@gmail.com
    He was the agent that helped me, this is the little help I can give to you
    all.
