Simple and inexpensive techniques for the rapid analysis of continuous electrocardiographic tape recordings are described. Permanent records, which we call the Rhythm Scan (for analysis of heart rate and rhythm) and the S-T Contour Scan (for analysis of ST-T-segment alterations) enable accurate interpretations to be made and reproduced in standard electrocardiographic format. Eight hours of continous electrocardiographic recording can be summarized on 4 feet of paper. The Scan can be produced by a technician in less than 15 minutes. These techniques can be applied to the analysis of continous electrocardiographic tape recordings from patients in an intensive coronary care unit, as well as to data obtained from ambulatory patients by the Holter technique.
