If you are a general practitioner looking to start your own private practice, you may have considered purchasing one or more electrocardiographs (ECGs) for your facility. These machines determine the electrical activity in a patient's heart, and many of your clients will need electrocardiography tests during their heart disease screenings.
Before administering heart tests on your patients, it is important to familiarize yourself with how electrocardiograph machines function. You may have received training in medical school, but enhancements in technology have revolutionized these machines. There are a variety of manufacturing companies that create electrocardiograph machines for medical facilities. You should always follow the specific instructions outlined by the manufacturer you choose to purchase from to avoid harming patients. Absolute Medical Equipment, MediHub and Cardiology for Less are the names of three companies that sell basic and advanced ECG machines and equipment.
Many of the ECG machines on the market today will make it easier for you to detect heart malfunctions in your patients. With some machines, a specific fluid can be inserted into the patient's blood stream through an intravenous therapy line (IV), and a special camera shows how the fluid flows through the heart, which allows you to determine immediately if the patient has a blockage.
