To diagnose cardiovascular system requires not only adequate medical equipment-electrocardiograph, but also high-quality paper for conference recording. This consumable material for many decades has consistently used to register evidence of cardiac activity of the patient. ECG paper is characterized by high density and ease of use.
Different devices using the following options ECG paper: roll, evolving ("harmonica") and a disk. The main characteristics of the paper is its length, width and density (thickness).
Depending on the labeling and the presence of perforations emit paper:
- without drawing a chart grid;
- tagged by a grid or a thermal layer;
- tagged with back side grid or a thermal layer;
- tagged with two parties;
- with perforation;
- with double perforations.
Printers are built into machines EKG can make ink and thermal printing. Last-entry on the thermal paper is used in most modern models cardiographs. Thermal paper is composed of several layers, has a high quality printing and image protection. In termoprinterah not used neither ink nor toner cartridges, color paper is the source. But it's important to remember that such paper, by definition, affect temperature and store it at room temperature is recommended up to 30 degrees. In addition, thermal paper, higher cost compared to analogue designed for ink-printing.
