Electrocardiography (ECG or EKG) measures the heart's electrical activity using by surface or needle electrodes. ECG signals are employed to examine heart rate, heart rate variability, analysis of the waveform morphology, surgical monitoring, and other similar functions.

ECG data can be acquired into LabChart in a number of ways, including a benchtop acute measurement with our Bio Amps, or with wireless telemetry.

Easily sample ECG along with nerve activity, blood pressure, or other signals as part of your integrative physiology protocols.
