AMETEK Engineered Medical Components has received a US patent for its design for an electrocardiogram (ECG) cable and electrical assembly that exceeds the low-noise and electromagnetic interference standards established by the ANSI/AAMI EC-53 for ECG cable and lead wires.
The patented design includes a low-noise coating that is applied to the cable’s primary conductors and a shield that is applied over the conductors. The shield tightly binds the cable’s insulted conductors together, while a semi-conductive wall between the conductors and the shield reduces rubbing that can result in triboelectric charges. This proprietary cable construction can be applied to cables designed with three to 10 ECG position/patch configurations
