1.1 How to Measure ECG - Introduction: What is ECG?
Welcome to this training series on "How to Measure ECG: A Guide to the Signals, System Blocks, and Solutions!"
ECG measurement is a growing application space both in the traditional hospital environment as well as in wearable and mobile systems. This training series explains the clinical basics of ECG, the physiology behind the signal, and how to model the body with ideal electrical components. Then, we dive into the circuits that are required to measure ECG and learn how TI's ADS129x family of delta-sigma ADCs integrate many of the signal chain requirements to simplify customer designs.
