DIY Heartbeat Monitor

I built a quick DIY Heartbeat Monitor thats essentially just a dynamic microphone functioning as a stethoscope. I'll blog about the details later, but doesn't it make a really cool picture? :P

Hmm.. I don't like that 4th harmonic... you got a leaky valve?

;)

but yes. cool.

That is just his t wave. It is a little bit too far away from the rest but not too bad. Would like to see a 6 second strip or an ekg to determine if it is normal.

And yes it is cool.

As this is audio, it wouldn't show the T wave. As you quite correctly say, the T wave would show on the ekg, which would allow assessment of it's amplitude and duration. It relates to myocardial repolarisation.

The two elements on the screen are the "lubb" and the "dubb". They relate to closure of the mitral (aka bicuspid) and tricuspid valves and the aortic and pulmonary valves. Uneven flow or leaked back-flow through these valves result in a murmer.

I was going to say something along these lines but you beat me to the response. Of course, mine would have been a lot simpler along the lines of "Audio won't show a T wave... n00b" :)

Okay, thanks... you guys just made me feel like a damn idiot, since I have no idea what in the hell you're talking about. Shouldn't you be talking about computers or something instead??? :)

Hehe, the gist is that there is a difference between the sound your heart makes and the electrical impulses it gives off.

Ok so it has been a while since I did any of this, sorry. I was just trying to make a joke more than anything. But yes you are all right the t wave would not show up on audio.

Sure, but really it's just clever, it's not technical impressive.

hey gregor i was wondering where you have heard the term "mitral" before? i've never heard that. always bicuspid or semi-lunar. what are they teaching us kids in our highschool anat. and phys. classes? -_- (btw not implying mitral is incorrect, just asking where u saw it. book? class? etc...)
