The CARDIOLOGIC EXPLORER is a modular system which, in addition to Cardiogoniometry, can be used as an efficient 12 Lead Rest ECG. The modules can be used individually or combined.
Please find below an overview of potential applications as a 12 Lead Rest ECG:
Automatic Measuring and Diagnosis Using HES®-algorithm
The HES®-system is a globally accepted standard for automatic measurement and interpretation of electrocardiograms. Cardiologists are continuously developing the algorithms, so they are among the most sensitive and comprehensive ECG analytic systems. The HES®-program was part of the project “Common Standards for Quantitative Electrocardiography”, CSE. The results have been independently analyzed and published in the New England Journal of Medicine, Vol. 325, No. 25, 1991.
Program Features (HES®):
- Precise localization and classification of cycles
- Averaging of the dominant (normal) heart beats and determination of up to three types of extrasystoles
- Precise wave point detection
- Interference detection and filtering
- Measurement charts for P, QRS, ST, QT, QTc, etc. for the full ECG
- Detailed rhythm analysis: VES, PVC, couplets, triplets, salvos, pauses, bigeminy, trigeminy, ventricular tachyrhythmias, bradycardia, flutter…
- P-wave interpretation (e.g. atrial congestion, extended atrial excitation)
- Interpretation of abnormal repolarization and T-wave changes (e.g. ischemia)
- Interpretation of intraventricular nervous conduction impulses (e.g. bundle branch blocks and pre-excitation syndrome, left anterior hemiblock)
The initial output of the 12 Lead Rest ECG software displays the leads. The waves can be moved around, zoomed in and out and played back or filtered. Additionally, in the filter view, measurements and annotations are possible.

The print manager “collects” all screenshots and views of the output. Individual pictures can be chosen for printing in a preview function. The report can be printed in whole, or as manually selected views. In addition, screenshots can be exported into PDF and saved in the data base.
CHEST PAIN EXPLORER
The CHEST PAIN EXPLORER combines the advantages of the 12 Lead Rest ECG and Cardiogoniometry. A 12C Rest ECG is used to detect a STEMI. If this is possible, no further diagnostic is required. In all other cases, the CHEST PAIN EXPLORER can perform a Cardiogoniometry recording, to obtain additional data on the cardiac cause of the patient’s afflictions through the three-dimensional evaluation of the potentials of the heart.
