Morning all,

I work for a 48 bed Hospice and we are looking at sourcing an ECG. It's primary use will be for instances when an ECG is required before starting certain medications and we don't want to have to transfer a patient between us and a hospital just for an ECG. I can foresee that like our Ultrasound it will be used infrequently. We are a charity and 80% of our costs are covered by donations/fundraising.

I'm asking the Hive mind on here what companies/reps to look at as I have no idea where to start...

Hi Hilary
The is a company called Cardiac services who could provide you with a variety of ECG machines. You could also try Mindray, they provide some good warranty cover at a good price.

The last time I had an ECG taken (some years ago now), they used a toy* that was not much bigger than a PDA (of that era). whistle

It may have been this one!

... and the A4 printouts it generated were entirely adequate, I should add! smile

You can check the manual here.

Numed used to supply them (not sure about now) - but I note that they also offer a PC-based system (which you may also wish to consider; you can rent them as well).

* It reminded me of the first GameBoy!


If you don't inspect ... don't expect.

Cardiac services are very good - we have used them a number of years.

Also try Fukuda Denshi, we have loads of their ECG Machines easy to use and to maintain and I think we were paying around the 2.5k mark and no I don't work for them.
