By Edited Aug 9, 2016 0 0

Electrocardiogram (ECG/EKG) is an important diagnostic tool that measure in detail wide ranges of heart conditions. One of the most important pieces of medical machinery used in hospitals and medical clinics needs the right accessories in order to run smoothly. Cardiology supplies needed to help with cardiologist's diagnoses are: electrodes, clips, paper chart, patient cables, and medical sheet mount.

Electrodes are the actual conductor that electrical current passes through, not the machine itself. These electrical conductors should always be stocked in any hospital and health clinic's cardiology unit. There are different makers and models of electrodes in the medical consumer market, so make sure the electrodes you buy are the right fit for your EKG machine.

Clips are another important EKG machine accessories. Tabs and alligator clips help secure the electrodes in place for the electrical heart readings. Once again, there are many different types of clips that are used for certain electrode models, so make sure clips and electrodes is a good fit for your electrocardiogram machine. Tabs and alligator clips are commonly used for snap or tab electrode.

EKG technicians analyze the heart's electrical activities by the reading the recorded results on the chart paper. Traces of electrical activities inside your heart are recorded on the paper and from the recordings is how cardiologists thoroughly analyze minor and major heart disease. It would be in the hospitals and clinics best interest to have plenty of paper supply ready for their EKG machine.

EKG patient cables provide patient monitoring while minimizing potential electrical shocks due to exposed pins. Also available in different types and lengths, purchase a cable that have a reliable factory warranty in case of product malfunction or if it's not the right fit for your EKG machine. This is particularly useful if you're looking at buying used EKG machines.

Used to hold paper rhythm strips (recorded chart paper), a medical mount sheet is a carrier that allows sheets to be filed in a patient's chart using adhesive cover with a throwaway liner to secure the rhythm strips to the form. Mounts are usually hand-filled but laser compatible versions are available for more convenience.
