THE FUTURE OF ELECTROCARDIOGRAPH TELEMETRY SYSTEMSBurkhardt, Brian; Redstone Technical Test Center (International Foundation for Telemetering, 2004-10)The Electrocardiograph (EKG or ECG) measures electrical changes of tissue surrounding the heart to create a time-based representation of the physical operation of the heart. The purpose of this paper is to explore the future of ECG telemetry systems and how they are used in health care. The initial goal is to develop an inexpensive, efficient, and robust real-time ECG telemetry system. The future goal is to create a wireless network of miniature body sensors capable of measuring ECG data and other vital signs.
