Quinton stress test systems feature the
internationally-acclaimed algorithm that is used by thousands
worldwide. This algorithm has a proven record for reliability and
accuracy in demanding clinical situations; and it's just one of several
reasons why Quinton is a recognized market leader in the stress testing
Design Your Display Format
The Q4500 gives you more flexibility in
determining the appearance of the display during the stress test.
Select from eight standard audio and/or visual alarms and pre-set them
based on your patient's particular threshold levels.
Show a heart rate pie graph within the
header. Touch a key to display one of nine other graphs on screen,
including worst-case ST graphics, ST trends, and more. The Q4500 will
continue to display all three leads.
Present resting and/or current averages
alongside live ECG signals--even show them on the left or right side of
the screen (the ECG waveforms shift to accommodate your preference).
Filters for Cleaner Traces
The Q4500 uses digital filters that dramatically reduce muscle artifact and baseline wander on your live ECG tracings.
The muscle artifact filter minimizes the
artifact you see, with virtually no distortion of the ECG signal. In
effect, this powerful digital filter adjusts its strength to cut away
as much artifact as necessary, while carefully avoiding over-filtering
which can cause signal distortion.
The Q4500 also uses a filter with a
powerful linear phase response to suppress baseline wander. All while
preserving the fidelity of the ECG signal and providing accurate ST
measurements. The result is crisp, clear signals and traces.
Customize Your In-test Reports The Q4500
lets you design your in-test reports in a variety of ways. Include and
arrange any combination of data within two different report headers.
Move these header blocks to the top or bottom of the page. Then ask
yourself some questions.
Do I want 12-lead reports with or without a
rhythm strip? In a 6 x 2, 3 x 4, or other column size? Should I format
that with or without current resting, and worst case averages? Where do
I want the averages: to the left or right of the ECG waveforms?
You get the basic idea. The Q4500 allows
you to easily customize your reports in an almost unlimited number of
combinations. That means more freedom to design your reports in the way
you (and medical records) prefer.
Pre-Edit during Your Patient's Recovery Now
you can preview the final report and enter final report information
while your patients are still in the recovery phase. That means you can
start entering data immediately rather than waiting until the end of
recovery to enter final report information. Enter your reason for
ending the test, test impressions, and test conclusions. During this
time the Q4500 continuously displays ECG waveforms in case any
significant changes occur during your patient's recovery.
Customize Your Final Reports Like many
other systems, the Q4500 lets you include a summary page,
interpretation, tabular report, graph page, average beat, and worst
case summary for your final reports. But with the Q4500, you can also
create your own personal formats. Select from over 30 different data
templates; arrange them anywhere within the summary and interpretation
For the graph section, select up to nine
graph types, including a full ST/HR slope graph, HR x BP, systolic and
diastolic BP, and more. And choose from a variety of average beat
reports with different channels and leads.
Best of all, you can name, store and review
up to three of your own final report formats internally, or store an
almost unlimited number of diskette. Use them again and again, or make
variations at any time.
