Electrocardiograph Reader for Linux.
Most electrocardiogram programs require the use of a special Data Aquisition card. QEcg is a program to interpret an electrocardiogram through the sound card on a Linux computer. The program displays the ECG and calculates the heart rate. This program can be used with an ECG simulator or even a real ECG ( although the ECG will need to be amplified using a circuit such as that described here or here [local copy] ). Just connect the ECG output to the sound card and run the program. It only works under Linux.
- Qt version 3.x or most recent version.
- A recent version of the gcc compiler.
- 8 bit minimum soundcard
