The FL40 is an Ultra-Portable ECG Unit with a 2.8" color TFT screen. It is ideal for EMS/Rescue, physicians, home care, and patient use. 1-lead 30 second ECG Strips and results are displayed on the sharp TFT screen, stored on a Micro-SD Card, or transferred to a PC for archiving or printing. Software is included for transferring data via PC, USB Cable, or 3-lead ECG cable.
The FL40's 0.5 to 75 hertz frequency response provides optimal signal quality. Grid marks are provided at 5mm spacing. The unit can be configured to store 30 second strips or be put in a continuous mode for extended monitoring.
Patients may hold the unit's electrodes between both hands (Lead I), while holding the unit against the left leg with the right hand (Lead II), or while holding the unit against the chest with the right hand (chest lead). Dry skin may cause high impedance, resulting in poor signal quality. Applying water or gel to the skin may improve impedance and ECG signal quality.
For better signal quality, the optional limb clips or snap-ecg electrode cable can be used. The limb clips can be clipped against the patient's wrists or leg. Gentle pressure should be applied to the limp clips to reduce artifacts and noise. The limb clips are especially useful on geriatric patients which may have thin skin that can be easily damaged with electrode use. For the best signal quality and minimal amount of noise on the ECG waveform, use the 3-lead cable with electrodes applied.
The user should always relax when taking measurements. Muscle action may cause noise to appear on the ECG signal.
The unit will automatically power off if a key is not pressed within 1 to 10 minutes (user configurable).

I got this for my husband who had an episode of atrial flutter. I am a family doctor and thought that a 3 lead recording should be better than a watch. Not so. It is hard to get a decent reading with the hands. The baseline wanders and the P waves are usually not distinguishable. His watch also tells him what the rhythm is. With this device, it just tells you to save it. What is the point, all you can see are the QRS complexes to count and see if they are irregular but It doesn’t tell you that.
Works great so far! Software could use some improvements though.
Great but much trial and error to use. Software tough. Saved scans couldn't bring back easily. Found files in C:\Users\(my computer)\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\ProgramFile(x86)\Keep-It-Easy Unique to Windows 10 I guess. Helps to be computer savvy. Hand Unit works great. First one was defective, but warranty honored. Recommend Printing to Microsoft PDF, not Adobe.
great product. works best with ECG cables and electrodes.
Great product! I recently bought this. It was easy to use and easy to set up. I'm glad I bought this cause I was able to confirm that I was having random palpitations which I was able to show and tell my doctor about. I am very satisfied with this product. Thanks!
