ECG Solutions

Overview

The cardiac cycle involves a sequential contraction of the atria and ventricles which is triggered by the coordinated electrical activity of the myocardial cells in the heart. These electrical currents can be recorded non-invasively through electrodes produciLabScribe ECG Analysis Moduleng what is known as an electrocardiogram or ECG. The ECG can be measured in 3 dimensions by looking at the electrical signals from different views or leads. iWorx offers ECG software and complete systems for humans and animals to study ECG in some of the most common lead configurations – 3 lead ECG, 6 lead ECG, 12 lead ECG.

Small Animal

Small Animal Option 100BSingle Lead
This system includes the IX-100B single channel biopotential amplifier and recorder. This configuration is a cost effective solution for those only interested in measuring a single lead of ECG and no other physiological signals simultaneously. The gain, high-pass filter setting and low-pass filter setting can be configured via software.
IX-BIO4-SAMultiLead
This system includes the IX-BIO4-SA or the IX-BIO8-SA  channel biopotential amplifier and recorder. This configuration is a cost effective solution for those only interested in measuring ECG/EMG. The gain, high-pass filter setting and low-pass filter setting can be configured via software.
Small Animal IX-RA SystemMultiLead Expandable
Several options are available depending on the research protocol and the need to acquire other signals (pressure, volume, flow, etc.) in addition to ECG.  Our multi-channel systems have software configurable gains, high-pass and low-pass filter settings. These systems allow for simultaneous recording of up to 12 ECG leads (lead I, lead II, lead III, aVR, aVL and aVF and the 6 chest leads).Suggested recorder: IX-RA-834 with iWire-BIO4 or iWire-ECG12

LS-ECG

iWorx LabScribe ECG Software Module is a powerful and user-friendly tool intended to automate the analysis of ECG data from a variety of species. Specific analysis templates are included to accurately delineate PQRST onset, durations and amplitudes. Custom templates can also be created based on unique ECG profiles and saved to a library for future use. Other features include beat averaging, beat classification and outlier removal based on abnormal R-R intervals, heart rate, noise and activity, Pointcaré plots and scattergrams and the ability easily extract source data and average data as images or text files.The LabScribe ECG Software Module includes a comprehensive list of 24 calculations including R-R, PR, QT, QR and QTc intervals, QRS, T, P and TP durations, P, Q, R, S, T amplitudes and ST elevation. The software module is plug and play compatible with all iWorx data acquisition and analysis systems. A separate ASCII Text Import Module is also available that enables import of ECG data in text format that was recorded by any other acquisition program.

Heart Rate Variability  

Kubios HRV - Heart Rate Variability Analysis Software is an advanced tool for studying the variability of heart beat intervals.  Data can be exported from LabScribe using the edf export option and then imported into Kubios HRV for analysis, as shown in this technote

LS-TXT

The iWorx ASCII Import Module enables import of data in text format that was recorded in any other data acquisition program. The module also allows the researcher to use the analysis functions in LabScribe2 software on data they may previously recorded with another a different program.Detailed information about using the modules is in the LabScribe Manual
