PASPORT EKG Sensor - PS-2111

PS2111_inuse_MAIN.jpg

Overview

No data is more interesting to a student than data about their own body. Our EKG sensor lets students see the electrical signals generated by their hearts. After students conduct mild exercise, watch the change in data occur. Our digital technology generates not only the EKG signal, but the heart rate as well. The electrically isolated input ensures student safety.

  • Standard three-electrode design.
  • Easy-to-use, disposable stick-on electrodes.
  • No messy gel required.

Typical Applications

  • Generate a personal EKG graph
  • Compare EKG graphs before and after mild exercise

Includes

  • 100 self-adhesive disposable electrode patches
  • How It Works

    With each heart beat, the pacemaker of the heart (called the SA node) conducts electricity. The electrical current travels from the SA node in the right upper chamber of the heart down to the lower chambers, the ventricles, of the heart. The electrical activity always preceded each contraction. Electrodes placed throughout the body record the signal generated from the heart.

    An EKG, also called electrocardiogram or ECG, is a reading of the electrical signal generated from the heart. The EKG shows whether the heart's rhythm and electrical conduction is normal.
