ECG Paper for Printing ECG Derivations
By placing ECG electrodes on the patient, medical personnel can monitor heart rate, heart rhythm and other electric activity from the heart. Since there are different types of electrocardiography, ECG monitors have been designed to meet various requirements. As a result, some ECG machines are equipped with thermal printers to document ECG readings.
ECG chart paper, also called register paper, is a special thermosensitive paper that is used to print recorded ECG derivations. Typically, ECG paper comes with a grid that assists in the interpretation of the ECG curve without the use of any technical devices and equipment. This makes the wave height, width and frequency easy to read and thus, the ECG derivations are easy to interpret.
ECG Paper Rolls and Folded Chart Paper
ECG chart paper comes in a wide range of shapes and sizes. To guarantee accurate readings, it is essential to select the right type of paper for your ECG monitoring device. Depending on the electrocardiograph and manufacturer, you may choose between rolls and Z fold paper.
The thermal paper rolls are available in different lengths and sizes to be torn by the cutting edge of the thermal printer. Folded ECG paper, on the other hand, is available in packs of Z-fold register paper that is perforated in regular intervals to allow for a clean tear.
Because ECG paper is thermal paper, it is important that the printout is not exposed to extreme temperatures or moisture. Otherwise, this could lead to discolouration of the register paper and, in the worst case scenario, the ECG curve will not be readable.
