Abstract

Electrocardiogram measurement plays a fundamental role for the finding and monitoring of a variety of cardiac problems. In this investigational study we considered three lead computer interface ECG module with PIC Controller, based on the Einthoven’s triangle technique. Our developed ECG module operates on bipolar limb lead arrangement and a particular gold plated switch is used for leads selection with the intention to reduce contact noises. LAB WINDOWS software is used to display a real time ECG signal that supports us to evaluate heart rate and PQRST amplitudes. Our investigational outcome illustrates 80% – 90 % precision as compared to conventional ECG machine, therefore it allowing an efficient ECG measurement regardless of artifacts.
