The ECG Bluetooth Application is a Bluetooth extension of the Texas Instruments’ ECG board. It can be used to capture and display a user’s ECG signal in the UAH Serial Application running on a Bluetooth-enabled workstation. 

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is a recording of the electrical activity on the body surface generated by the heart. This activity reflects the action of the cardiac muscle as it depolarizes and repolarizes during the cardiac cycle. The ECG represents the temporal and spatial summation of the action potentials of the myocardial fibers typically measured with body-surface electrodes. ECGs are used to diagnose arrhythmias, abnormal electrolyte (potassium) levels, and conduction abnormalities. They are also used for screening and therapy guidance for heart disease.
