With Small Camera, Big Potential Predicting Future Heart Attacks. Inserting a camera into the human body, to look around for trouble, used to be the thing of science fiction.

With Small Camera, Big Potential Predicting Future Heart Attacks

But as well all know full well, today millions of Americans visit doctor's offices annually to have a colonoscopy performed. It's become routine, and the cancer-spotting procedure saves lives. Now instead of envisioning a camera that fits inside a colon, imagine one that can slide and peer through a blood vessel. While you're imagining that, researchers in Michigan are currently experimenting with this new technology that may someday be able to predict a stroke or heart attack before it occurs. A team of doctors at Michigan Medicine, the medical school at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, are using an incredibly small camera – it's called a scanning fiber endoscope, or SFE – to improve the view inside blood vessels and the carotid artery.

"The camera actually goes inside the vessels. The technology, when you think about it, is quite amazing. The SFE's inventor is Dr. SHIELD-EKG-EMG. Open Source Hardware Electrocardiography electromyography shield for DUINOMITE, PINGUINO, MAPLE, ARDUINO like development boards This is an EKG/EMG shield which allows Arduino like boards to capture Electrocardiography Electromiography signals.


The shield opens new possibilities to experiment with bio feedback. You can monitor your heartbeat and log your pulse, recognize gestures by monitoring and analize the muscule activity as it is done in this project. SHIELD-EKG-EMG converts the analog differential signal (the ECG/EMG bio potentials generated by muscles), attached to its CH1_IN+/CH1_IN- inputs, into a single stream of data as output. The output signal is analog and have to be discretized further with aim to give the option of digital processing.

Portable ECG Monitor - How to buy one for Home Use

When we selected EKG monitors for sale, we discovered some high quality units at significantly reduced prices. Determine your own needs first, such as required features, affordability, and budget. There are many types of home ECG/EKG monitors for sale on the market, from tens of thousands to a few hundred dollars. The more expensive ones are used mostly in hospitals and major medical clinics. They are part of a comprehensive system for monitoring a patient's vital signs. ECG monitor is a medical device for recording the electrical activities of the heart from electrodes or reusable clips placed on the skin in specific locations. EKG does not directly show the actual functioning and movement of the heart; ECG measures the electrical activities which give good indications of a heart's performance. ECG80A Electrocardiograph(ECG)

Introduction ECG80A is a portable device, which is used to collect 12-lead ECG waveform for diagnosis and research.

Each lead refers to a perspective of the cardiac electrical activity from a given angle. As the cardiac electrical signal is 3 dimensional and multiple leads are required to get an accurate picture for diagnostic purpose. The ECG waveform can reveal the heart's condition, including irregular heartbeats, damage to heart muscle, and heart enlargement. Products - HealthWatch.

Tecnologie medicali: 1,5 milioni per Angiodroid. Agatsa. FDA clears Android-based continuous ECG monitor. The FDA has cleared the eMotion ECG Mobile, a Finnish continuous ECG monitor that connects to Android smartphones, as a Class 2 medical device. The ECG Mobile, made by Mega Electronics, already has a CE Mark and has been available for purchase in Europe since late 2012, but the company’s securing of FDA clearance suggests it may be bringing the device to the United States to compete with mobile ECG platforms like the well-established AliveCor or as-yet-unlaunched Cardiac Designs. According to a sales brochure from Mega, the device, a 3-lead wireless ECG, is designed to be prescribed by a doctor and worn continuously under a patient’s clothing. It continuously sends ECG readings to the user’s Android smartphone via Bluetooth and, from there, sends the data over the mobile network to a server.

The patient’s clinician can then access readings via a web browser. The device will also send the clinician an alarm when it detects irregular heart rate readings.
