Data Processors, Electronic Recording, Electrocardiography

Definition : Data processors designed to acquire and process digital data obtained from electrocardiographic signals that were previously electronically recorded (e.g., using a flash card). Data is transferred from the ambulatory (i.e., Holter) electrocardiography recorder to the processor (also known as a electrocardiogram scanner) for quantification, processing, display, and storage using dedicated software; the processor may also generate reports. Electrocardiography processors are used to analyze continuous and event data; they are intended mainly for the detection of cardiac problems, such as temporary abnormalities, and/or to check the progress of therapy (e.g., antiarrhythmic drugs) over a relatively long period of time (e.g., 48 hours).
