Cables/Leads, Electrocardiography

Definition : Combinations of a cable and several leads designed for connection between electrodes, which are placed on or in the body, and an electrocardiograph (ECG) or ECG monitor. These combined devices typically consist of flexible wires (e.g., 3, 5, 12 leads) that are completely isolated except at the electrode end (known as patient leads) and an integral cable that is connected to the leads at one end and to the electronic recorder or monitor at the other end. ECG cable/leads are used for recording and/or displaying in real time the waveforms (i.e., electrocardiograms) of the biologic electric signals from the heart.
