Abstract:

Electrodes manufactured by Naval Medical Field Research Laboratory NMFRL were compared with those manufactured by Beckman Instruments Company for the purpose of obtaining heart rates during vigorous activity treadmill walking under conditions of high temperature and humidity. Also, use of the Ace R bandage to secure the electrodes in place was compared with use of the Beckman adhesive fastener. The electrodes manufactured by NMFRL performed as well as did those manufactured by Beckman Instruments. The adhesive fastener presented advantages over the Ace R bandage, but a longitudinal study is required to determine whether its use over a period of time will result in dermatologic problems. The analog presentation of heart rate data presented several advantages over previous techniques. Author
