A new device for ECG. Cardiac Science has introduced two new electrocardiographs (ECGs) in the Burdick line. For a large part, the new 8000 series are pretty standard ECG devices, one, the 8500 with a nice color display, and the other, the 8300 with a more basic set of features. The Burdick 8300 is a practical, no-nonsense ECG device. The Burdick 8300 ECG / EKG has a friendly user interface and clear, readable 5.7-inch monochrome display to make reading data easy, with protocol choices designed to streamline your work flow.
However, the nice touch is that both of these devices come with wired Ethernet, wireless 802.11 and Bluetooth onboard, with bi-directional communication to EMRs and diagnostic workstations. Patient information can be downloaded directly from the EMR, saving time and avoiding typing mistakes, and acquired ECGs can be sent directly to the EMR. In the picture you see the Burdick 8300, while the video below shows the Burdick 8500. Both are available exclusively in the United States.
The Burdick 8300 ECG cleans the ECG waveform before it is measured and analyzed by the Glasgow Royal Infirmary (GRI) algorithm. With more than 30 years of continuous refinement, the GRI algorithm is the first and only to consider five clinically significant variables – including gender, age, race, medication, and classification – to interpret patient data.
- Interpretive statements are consistent with the AHA/ACC/HRS 2007 Guidelines for Diagnostic Statements.
- Interpretive STEMI statements are consistent with the AHA/ACC 2009 Recommendations for Interpretation.
- Pediatric and neonate interpretation based on industry-only V4R lead placement.
