Physiologic Monitor Modules, Electrocardiography

Definition : Modules designed to be used as a component of a physiologic monitor, along with related devices, to acquire, measure, and process information for the purpose of continuously monitoring the electrical activity of the heart and the associated electrocardiogram (ECG). These modules contain electronic circuits or other technology designed to acquire and/or process the signal from one or more physiologic sensors (e.g., electrodes) and transmit it to the physiologic monitor, which contains the software designed to support the module's intended function(s). Electrocardiography modules must be inserted in a dedicated location (e.g., "slot") within a physiologic monitor (e.g., modular or modular/configured bedside or transport monitor) or related device (e.g., module rack) in order to support the desired function(s). Typical functions of an electrocardiography module, when used with a physiologic monitor, include continuous 3-, 5-, and/or 6-lead ECG monitoring; heart rate numeric and ECG waveform(s) display; arrhythmia detection; ST-segment analysis; and appropriate initiation of visual/audible alarms. Some modules provide additional functions, such as 12-lead ECG monitoring and diagnostic interpretation.
