Resources & Equipment
The Laboratory is fully equipped for the recording and analysis of a variety of cardiac signals, including body surface potentials mapping, intracardiac electrograms, surface ECG, blood pressure signals, and more.
Body surface potentials mapping system
Body surface mapping system (Active Two, MK2, Biosemi, the Netherlands) with 128 electrodes records body surface potentials at 16,384 Hz sampling rate, bandwidth (~3dB) DC-3200 Hz; digitalization 24 bit, 4th order Delta-Sigma modulator with 64X oversampling, one converter per channel.
Non-invasive continuous recording of blood pressure digital signal
Holter ECG monitoring
High resolution 1000Hz 12-leads Holter monitor H12 (Mortara Instruments, USA) is available for recording of ECG during 48 hours, at rest and during the 6-min walk test.
Intracardiac Electrograms Recording
Labview digitizer NI DAQs (NI USB-9215A) is available for digitizing of analog signal output. Custom Labview software and NI DAQs are available for recording of near-field and far-field intracardiac electrograms via ICD device programmers.
Long-term ECG monitoring
ECG patches (BioStamp Research Connect™, MC10, Inc) are available for continuous (14-30 days) recording of high resolution (1000 Hz) ECG and VCG signal.
Resting 12-lead ECG
ECG MAC 5500 HD (GE Healthcare, Wauwatosa, WI, USA) is available for recording of the digital signal of orthogonal Frank XYZ ECG, and 12-lead ECG.
