6 ECG, Arrhythmia, ST and QT Monitoring
R-wave peak at 0 msec
J point, for example, 48 msec
Difference = ST value
ST measurement point, for example, J + 60 msec
Isoelectric point set to -80 msec
If using ST analysis, the ST measurement points need to be adjusted when you start monitoring, and if
the patient's heart rate or ECG morphology changes significantly, as this may affect the size of the QT
interval and thus the placement of the ST point. Artifactual ST segment depression or elevation may
occur if the isoelectric point or the ST point is incorrectly set.
Always ensure that ST measurement points are appropriate for your patient.
Setting ISO and J-Point Detection Mode
There are two modes for ISO and J-point detection:
