The machines are small and very portable and ECGs performed on these machines can be sent for professional interpretation and a full 3-page report will be returned directly to the practices DOCMAN system. Report turn-around can be undertaken within 24 hours or within hours if deemed urgent. This service is provided by Technomed Limited.
