Why Good Enough ... Isn’t Good Enough For ECGs


Heart health is growing in importance for practices everywhere.

ECG Waveforms
92.1 Million

Heart disease & stroke

About 92.1 million American adults are living with some form of cardiovascular disease or the after-effects of stroke.1

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States

A growing concern

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States.2


An ECG may be the most important thing you do today.

But, you can only interpret what you can see.

Overly filtered ECGs can DISTORT or REMOVE the authentic ECG waveform data you need to interpret.

No filter versus filter waveform graph


That’s why governing bodies like the ACC, AHA and HRS publish adult and pediatric guidelines,3 providing guidance to:

  • Limit filtering so not to sacrifice potentially lifesaving ECG waveform data
  • Clearly disclose filtering so physicians can more easily identify original vs. processed ECG waveform data

“Good Enough” ECG Technology ... Isn’t.

It’s time to see what you could be missing with the Welch Allyn Connex® Cardio ECG.


ECG waveform

Industry-leading interpretation algorithm

Uses an algorithm—trusted by the FDA in new drug trials—to help you interpret a diagnostic quality ECG based off of authentic ECG waveform data

Best ten Technology

“Best 10” technology

Captures 10 seconds of data with the least amount of noise to help reduce the need for repeat tests

wireless connectivity
