What is an ECG caliper?
Calipers are measuring tools used to measure thickness, distance, and diameter. EKG calipers are most commonly of a type called split calipers and consist of two rotatable, adjustable legs, each with a tip or tip at the end. They are used in medicine, mainly in cardiology, and are specifically calibrated to measure the distance, or interval, between the lines on a graph called an electrocardiogram (abbreviated as ECG or EKG). Many EKG calipers include a separate ruler to measure the distance between the tips of the caliper after they have been positioned on the lines, or waves, of the EKG graph. The ruler then gives a measurement that often translates distance into seconds, for example, 25 mm can equal 1 second, allowing the user to examine the EKG and make a diagnosis.
Electrocardiography is a way of examining heart activity and is used to diagnose various kinds of heart problems, such as myocardial infarction. This diagnostic procedure is considered particularly effective in diagnosing heart problems related to abnormal heart rhythms. For examination, skin electrodes are attached to the legs, arms, and chest. These electrodes are connected to an ECG device which is then able to provide a detailed, non-invasive recording of the electrical impulses of the heart as a series of waves. The graph produced is then examined and interpreted by a specialist, and EKG calipers are commonly used to help interpret the readings.
EKG calipers are often made from steel or other metal, and a common size is approximately 4-5 inches (10-15 cm) long, though they come in different sizes. The tips of EKG calipers are very fine and sharp for safe and accurate positioning on EKG graph paper. These tips are often covered with a removable, protective cap. Some EKG calipers are vernier calipers, which means their tips slide along the tool instead of rotating the legs to measure. Vernier calipers usually have a built-in ruler or scale on the instrument itself.
