The feature rich Nihon Kohden CardioFaxV Interpretive ECG 1550A is a high-end hospital quality ECG cart. The large high resolution touch screen makes for an easy user interface for data entry. The 1550A is available as a standard 12-lead electrocardiograph, but stress testing can be added as an option along with a Full Vision Trackmaster treadmill and SunTech auto blood pressure unit with SpO2. Another option is 15-lead electrocardiography which enables a close look at the left descending circumflex coronary artery is it wraps around the bottom and back of the heart. The 1550A firmware also includes vectorcardiography, along with origin of ECG forces information. The system stores five minutes of full disclosure ECG data so that the clinician can review and choose the best representative sample of ECG for the report. This is a valuable feature when dealing with non-compliant patients as is typically the case in pediatrics. The internal rechargeable battery adds to the versatility of the unit when used as both a roaming ECG cart and when required for treadmill stress testing. Communication capabilities include: LAN; and wireless LAN; and USB outputs. Bar coding is also available. Two memory card slots allow for the storage of up to 6,000 resting ECG’s on inexpensive SD cards.
