Medical Electronics Final Project: ECG

Jordan-2016 Biomedical, Jordan 0 Comments

Hey guys!

This week we finished our Medical Electronics (BME302) group project, creating an ECG using operational amplifiers, highpass and low pass circuits, and bioelectrodes attached directly to, you guessed it, me! Check out some of the pictures from our circuit and the output we got… my heartbeat!

Disclaimer: do not hook any electrical circuits up to your body without proper instruction or knowledge of circuitry. 

 

We "grounded" the circuit to my ankle bone... get it? Because feet touch the... ground?

My actual heartbeat... coming in at ~70 bpm... I'm surprised it wasn't a little higher!

Everything working properly on the breadboard... lots of detailed calculations for resistors, capacitors, and the works.
