In 2013, Turner filed a bill that would add electrocardiograms
to the physical exams already required by the University Interscholastic League (UIL).
Unlike typical second-degree atrioventricular (AV) block, type I, where the lengthening of the P-R intervals in progressively smaller increments can be measured, because sinus node depolarization does not register on the standard electrocardiogram
, SA conduction times cannot be measured.
Although exercise testing has been commonly used for decades, doctors have been focusing primarily on the electrocardiogram
, instead of other, simpler measures which actually give more useful information," said Michael S.
Immediately after operation an electrocardiogram
was recorded (Figure 1).
In addition to providing computer interpretation of electrocardiograms
(ECGS) to about 1,800 doctors and healthcare facilities, the company currently markets the OsteoGram(TM), a bone density test that uses X-ray technology to determine a patient's risk of developing osteoporosis.
The investigators also measured each participant's blood pressure, drew a sample of blood, and performed an electrocardiogram
, a test that can reveal abnormal electrical activity of the heart.
Because of the patient's recurrent episodes of ventricular tachycardia, an automatic implantable cardioverterdefibrillator (AICD) was placed within months of these electrocardiograms
, and he was given amiodarone.
The study found that the monitors, which produce continuous electrocardiograms
, can reveal when the heart is not getting enough blood.
The CardioGram system remotely interprets electrocardiograms
and is used by private practice, government and corporate healthcare providers nationwide.
Tests most frequently performed include cholesterol levels (89 percent) and electrocardiograms
(92 percent); exercise testing (17 percent), and echocardiography (13 percent) are performed less frequently on a routine basis.
Pediatric Cardiology Associates provides non-invasive pediatric cardiology physician services to infants and children with congenital and acquired heart disease, including echocardiograms, electrocardiograms
, treadmill stress tests and fetal cardiology assessments.
The CardioGram system is one of the first telecommunication networks designed to remotely interpret electrocardiograms
and is used by private practice, as well as government and corporate healthcare providers nationwide.
are electrical tracings of the heart's activity that can pick up abnormal rhythms or disturbances.
Alderman and his co-workers determined the baseline blood pressures of 1,765 people entering treatment for hypertension, 25 percent of whom had abnormal electrocardiograms
In the first English-language article on the subject, Weyn and Marriott found this pattern and no other abnormality in approximately 1% of hospital electrocardiograms
