ECG devices are professional medical equipment for diagnosing heart diseases. They allow electrocardiography, which measures the electrical activity of the heart through special electrodes placed on the patient's chest or four limbs. The electrodes are placed in different configurations depending on the need and the patient's condition. The ECG examination is completely painless, but it successfully detects abnormal organ function and allows the patient's condition to be monitored. The ECG device analyses the heart rhythm and records it as a moving line on the monitor. The graph taken by the electrodes, which records the strength and frequency of the heart's signals, is called the p-wave. The ECG test can last for a short time, or it can be carried out over a longer period for better monitoring of the patient.
Offer of ECG devices
In our offer, you will find components of ECG apparatus: electrodes, leads, transducers, recorders, monitors and many other components of the most modern ECG devices.
The ECG machine was invented in 1900. Since then, it has been repeatedly modernised and adapted to various conditions and needs.
Application of ECG equipment
The examination with the use of an electrocardiograph is commonly performed in hospitals, clinics, cardiological dispensaries. ECG is also a permanent part of the equipment of emergency services and ambulances. Some devices are adapted for home use. They have a compact design and special software compatible with smartphones.
An ECG machine records the three main waves of the heart rhythm: the P wave, which generates pacemaker activity; the QRS complex, which represents atrial diastole and ventricular contraction; and the T wave, which represents relaxation, or ventricular repolarisation.
Using an electrocardiography machine, many heart disorders can be detected such as:
- coronary artery disease
- atrial fibrillation
- drug overdose
- electrolyte deficiency
The ECG apparatus consists of bipolar and unipolar electrodes, connecting leads, an amplifier and a data storage and transmission device. The electrodes that are placed on the patient's body can vary in nature. Sometimes there is a need for the examination to be carried out in the least invasive way possible, without contact with the skin or with little accessibility to the body surface (e.g. in infants), in which case vacuum-mounted electrodes or flexible steel mesh are used.
The amplifiers used in ECG equipment are responsible for stabilising and amplifying the signal coming from the electrodes. Since it is necessary to isolate and process the collected data, strip recorders and signal transducers are additionally installed in the device. Equipping the device with the latest electronic technologies, diodes, computer microprocessors and printers allows for efficient configuration and presentation of the signal.
ECG equipment used spare parts
Just about all our replacement components come from dismantled medical devices from the world's largest producers. Each spare part is carefully taken apart by our skilled specialists, thoroughly tested, conserved and goes through an exceptionally demanding confirmation process before it is added to our portfolio. All spare components are tagged and validated to be fully suitable with the product model and application version of the fixed or serviced equipment. We deliver our replacement components across the world. parts are sent fast in properly protected packages by courier agencies.
