Standard communications protocol for computer-assisted electrocardiography
|Publication Date:||1 January 2001|
This standard covers the two-way digital transmission of remote requests and results between digital electrocardiographs (ECG carts) and heterogeneous computer systems (hosts). It documents the common conventions required for the cart-tohost as well as cart-to-cart interchange of specific patient data (demographic, recording...), ECG signal data, ECG measurement and ECG interpretation results.
This standard specifies the content and structure of the information which is to be interchanged between digital ECG carts and computer ECG management systems (ECG DBMS), as well as other computer systems where ECG data can be stored. It enables any two such systems to establish a logical link for communicating ECG related data in a standard and interpretable form.
