QRS Universal ECG Features:
The QRS Universal ECG uses the Louvaine analysis program which was found to have the best total accuracy when compared to nine popular competing algorithms by cardiologists. The Louvaine algorithm was also the best in correctly diagnosing myocardial infarction and the second best in diagnosing Ventricular Hypertrophy.
The Louvaine algorithm was also the best in correctly diagnosing myocardial infarction and the second best in diagnosing Ventricular Hypertrophy. For additional information about the Louvaine algorithm, download the QRS Universal ECG Algorithm Brochure
