I'm designing a medical device which requires a real-time signal from an electrocardiogram sent to the CPU of the device.
From what I was told, for typical ECG's there's a lag time between the detection and output of the electrical signal(?) Does anyone know if there's reliable real-time ECG device or procedure that I can use?
I think I've only been able to find detection algorithms to predict QRS complexes. I'm a chemical engineer, so all this is pretty confusing for me.
I'm pretty sure there is no delay at all, in fact that would sort of useless if there was.
