Like to play a doctor with your Arduino? This breakout board for the TI ADS1292R Analog front-end IC for ECG and respiration measurement will help you measure both ECG patterns and respiration. This is a simple board to add ECG/Respiration measurement capability to your Arduino, Raspberry Pi or any other microcontroller of your choice.
The board sports a 3.5mm interface to connect the electrodes. Link up the board onto an Arduino or a MCU of your choice, attach the cables and electrodes (10 disposable electrodes and a cable are included in the pack), power up and you are all set to read ECG data in real time! The cable accepts two ECG electrodes and one DRL (Driven Right Leg) electrode for common mode noise reduction.
The ADS1292R uses “impedance pneumography” to measure respiration too! The method uses the change in chest impedance to arrive at respiration measures.
Important Notice: This device is NOT intended to be used in/as medical diagnostic equipment. This is intended to be used solely for evaluation and research purposes only.
Safety Warning: Be careful while connecting the electrodes to the body when the Arduino in plugged in to your computer’s USB port. Make sure that your laptop’s main power is disconnected so that you dont provide a direct connection between ground and your body !
