ES 101 Section 6 EKG Analysis Homework # 3

Due 10/10/2001

Per our class discussion on 9/26/2001, take your EKG data and do a 2, 3,or 4 point differentiation.  Find the minimum slope (maximum negative value.)  Determine the number of QRS complexes in your data if you use  .8 and if you use .6 of this value as a trigger.  Plot on a single graph two complexes of EKG data with the slope and trigger value overlaid.

Report:      a.  number of QRS complexes, average heart rate

                b.  give me a copy of your plot, reasonably labeled.

                c.  discuss your results.
