Shukla, Rudra Dutt (2015) Designing of an ECG Signal Acquisition System and Analyzing Effect of Slow Music on Autonomic Nervous System. BTech thesis.
In recent times there has been a large increase in the development and designing of the portable and personal healthcare devices. These devices are not only very effective but also very cost effective. In the present study, we focused our research to design and develop a low cost portable ECG acquisition system. The acquired data and readings from the device can be stored in any computer with the help of customised software and can be sent to medical professional and experts for further diagnostics and detection. This ECG acquisition device can be useful to record the vital cardiac parameters of the patient. The device is easy to handle. After developing the device successfully, it was further used for ECG signal acquisition of the male volunteers for conducting research on effect of slow music on the cardiac physiology. The results indicated an increase in the parasympathetic dominance as the volunteers were made to listen to music. This indicates that slow music affected the sympatho-vagal balance.
