"It was an easy process. The actual application of the leads was simple and mailing it back was super easy! I love the quality of the EKG also."
"I ran the ECG on myself over the holiday weekend. It was fairly easy to set up. The ECG looks very clean. Very cool piece of tech."
"Thank you so much! I am very impressed with how easy it was to use and the results are really nice, too."
Thanks to our patented prepositioned electrode strip, no training is required to complete an ECG with PCA 500. Simply follow the step by step instructions in the Quick Guide, or view video instructions, to accurately and efficiently record a 12-lead ECG.
PCA 500 Electrode Strips come in four sizes (S, M, L, XL) for adults and three sizes (1, 2, 3) for pediatrics. The Sizing Guide is used to easily determine the correct size for each patient. Please refer to How to Use the Sizing Guide for detailed information.
Yes. To help prevent disease transmission and ensure the best ECG signal quality, PCA 500 Electrode Strips are one-time use. After application to a patient, the electrode strips may be repositioned and remain on the same patient. The hydrogel will begin to dry out and the quality of ECG signals cannot be guaranteed once the electrode package is open for more than 24 hours. You can breathe normally during the test, but you will need to lie still. Make sure you're warm and ready to lie still. Moving, talking or shivering may distort the test results. A standard ECG takes a few minutes.
Yes. PCA 500 is able to detect when there is a pacemaker present and it will not affect the quality of the ECG test. PCA 500 does not interfere with the function of a pacemaker.
All ECGs can be downloaded as PDF reports from the cloud-based Dashboard. Most EMR/EHR systems allow PDF documents to be uploaded to the patient’s records. If you have further questions, please contact the sales team for all integration inquiries.
