With the OMRON Portable ECG Monitor HCG-801, a recording of about 30 seconds can be made when symptoms occur whether at home or away. These recordings can then be shown to the doctor, who can examine and use the information to assist in correct diagnosis of symptoms

ECG Monitoring from your pocket

Heart problems don’t normally happen when expected or planned. They can occur anywhere, anytime and the chances are your doctor won’t be around. Wouldn’t it be great if you had a reading of your cardiac episode that you could show to the GP.  Such a reading, from an accurate and medically certified device, could assist them to diagnose serious problems and help to prescribe and monitor optimal medication levels. Unfortunately, carrying around a large ECG monitor is not an option. Even if they were lighter and smaller, they’re slow to set up and very complicated.  The solution would be a pocket sized, medically accurate, portable ECG machine. Thankfully, OMRON has the solution > The Omron HCG-801 portable ECG monitor

Where can HeartScan be used?

The unique features of the HeartScan ECG Monitor make this a versatile multi-purpose tool for medical professionals. The cordless operation and direct on-screen display allows a quick-scan of the heart condition. Due to the compact design the device fits in a white-coat pocket or doctor‘s bag.

OMRON HCG801 HeartScan is a portable ECG recorder that fits into the palm of your hand. After many years of research we have condensed a complete ECG unit into a compact, ergonomic, standalone and user-friendly device that you can carry with you at all times. So how does it work?

Looking for a Blood Pressure Monitor

Something we get asked about every day is whether these devices can also measure blood pressure. No, they can’t. These ECG devices monitor the electrical activity around the heart. A blood pressure monitor measures the diastolic and systolic blood pressure while the heart pumps and rests. We have a selection of some of the most popular blood pressure monitors here
