ECG electrodes for electrocardiography leads
You need ECG electrodes to register the electrical voltage changes in the heart that accompany the contraction of the heart muscle and to transmit them to the ECG machine. There are different types of electrodes. For example, there is a distinction between adhesive electrodes, suction electrodes and clamp electrodes.
Single use disposable adhesive electrodes
Self-adhesive electrodes are disposable electrodes that can be removed immediately after use. This minimizes the risk of cross-contamination or infection transmission. They are usually made of foam rubber or fleece. At the rear there is a snap button connection that provides connection to the ECG cable. We have an adapter for button electrodes.

Single Use Tab Electrodes
There are adhesive electrodes from Biotabs, which are available for crocodile connections and provide a particularly solid attachment. We have an adapter for crocodile connections: article number 1104005 ECG alligator banana plug 10 pieces.
Suction electrodes for negative pressure bonding
Suction electrodes are ECG electrodes that are reusable and fitted with a negative pressure rubber ball. This negative pressure ensures that the electrodes adhere sufficiently to the patient's skin. The ECG suction electrodes are for chest wall leads.
Clamp electrodes for extremity distraction
The clamp electrodes are for extremity leads only. The reusable ECG electrodes are clipped onto the hand or foot joints and are connected with a banana plug or snap button adapter. The electrodes come in a set of 4.
Electro gel for optimal lead quality
To bridge the distance between the electrode and the skin and to improve the quality of the cables, there are various contact media. There is electrode gel, electrode cream or contact spray. It is important that it is hypoallergenic and does not stain clothing.
