|Study Design:||Time Perspective: Prospective|
|Official Title:||Reliability of Outpatient Electrocardiogram Recordings in Patients Refered for a Cardiology Consultation|
- Comparison of the technical and diagnostic quality of outpatient clinic electrocardiogram with the on-site (cardiology consultation clinic) performed electrocardiograms [ Time Frame: Each patient will be tested once while visiting the cardiology consultation clinic. No further patient follow-up is planed. Data collection and evaluation is estimated at 6-9 months from study initiation ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]The cardiology clinic electrocardiogram will be compared to the out-patient electrocardiogram brought by the patient to the cardiology consultant

The correct performance of a 12 lead electrocardiogram depends on the correct placement of the electrocardiogram electrodes in internationally agreed upon anatomic locations on the patient's limbs and chest. This process requires specific training and diligence on the part of the electrocardiogram performer. The literature points towards a progressive quality degradation of the electrocardiogram performance probably due to the delegation of it's performance to lesser trained individuals. This study is attempting to ascertain the quality of the electrocardiogram recordings performed in non-specialized out patient clinics.
For this purpose we will compare outpatient electrocardiograms of patients referred to a cardiological consultation with electrocardiogram's acquired using a conventional electrocardiogram cable as well as the PhysioGlove-ES by the well training cardiology clinic personnel.
