Prof. Faiza Peetz March 22, 2019 Electrocardiography (ECG) I ABSTRACT Electrocardiogram is a test that measures the electrical activity of the heartbeat. An electrical impulses travels through the heart. The heart is responsible for pumping oxygenated blood from the lungs out to the body through the arteries and also circulating deoxygenated blood back to the lungs from the body through the veins. The heart is divided into four chambers and each chamber is responsible for a different part of the circulatory process. We wanted to become familiar with the electrocardiograph program for evaluating electrical events within the heart. To see the relationship between the electrical events as displayed on the ECG that occur during the cardiac cycle. Then observe the rate and rhythm changes in the ECG that is in correlation with the body positions and breathing. We were introduced to the techniques of ECG and how to read the waves and peaks of electrocardiogram. You can determine how long it takes to travel from one part of the heart to the next and the ECG allows use to see the the electrical activity. MATERIALS BIOPAC Electrode Lead Set (SS2L) BIOPAC Disposable Electrodes (EL503,) 3 electrodes per subject BIOPAC Electrode Gel (GEL1) and Abrasive Pad (ELPAD) or Skin cleanser or alcohol prep Mat, cot or lab table and pillow for Supine position Biopac Student Lab System: BSL 4 software, MP36, MP35 or MP45 hardware Computer System (Windows 8, 7, Vista, XP, Mac OS X 10.5 – 10.8) METHODS 1 . Turn the computer on. Plug the equipment in as follows and then turn on the MP36/35 unit. 2. Attach the electrodes on Subject. Clip the electrode lead set to the electrodes following the color code. Right forearm with the white lead, right leg with black lead, and the left leg with the

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
