Gathering EKG Data on Chromebooks
Amber Lewis' Anatomy classes will use Labquest devices and Chromebooks to conduct an EKG right in the classroom! Students will analyze data about their heart rates and rhythms. Students will first take resting heart rates, then exercise a bit to note changes in the data. Real-time sensor data is shown as a graph, a meter, or a table to accommodate different learning styles. All group members can analyze the data on their Chromebooks. The app for the data analysis is free in the Chrome web store. EKG sensors measure the electrical signals produced during muscle contractions.
