The Einthoven Goldberger Module (EGM) is used for capturing and amplifying ECG signals after Einthoven and Goldberger lead configuration in the PLUGSYS system. It connects to 4 electrodes. This module has isolated input amplifiers in order to avoid hum interference.

Inputs Leads:

RA: Right Arm

LA: Left Arm

LF: Left Foot

RF Right Foot (Reference)

Output Signals: Bipolar Einthoven Extremity Leads:

I: LA(+) - RA(-)

II: LF(+) - RA(-)

III: LF(+) - LA(-)

Unipolar Goldberger Extremity Leads:

aVR RA(+) - (LA+LF)/2(-)

aVL LA(+) - (RA+LF)/2(-)

aVF LF(+) - (RA+LF)/2(-)

The 6 output voltages of the different leads can be switched through jumpers to the PLUGSYS system bus. From the system bus they can be picked off by a Recorder Output Module (ROM) for direct recording or a DAQ Hardware PLUGSYS for data acquisition by computer.
