Mayo breakthrough in single-lead ECG tracings from an Apple Watch

By CH Unnikrishnan

The single lead ECG tracing gains significance as a standard ECG uses 12 electrode leads strategically placed on a person’s chest, arms and legs to create a tracing used to evaluate the heart’s electrical signals. A previous Mayo research showed that the 12-lead ECG and AI algorithm can identify a weak heart pump. However, this information is useful to clinicians in an office setting.
