  2. 2. Glossary of Terms <ul><li>AED Automated External Defibrillator – Auto diagnosis with voice directed treatment. </li></ul><ul><li>EKG/ECG ElectroCardioGram – skin surface, heart monitor </li></ul><ul><li>Holter Monitor Portable device for continuously monitoring the electrical activity of the heart for at least 24 hours. Can be external or implantable. </li></ul><ul><li>Defibrillation Delivering a therapeutic dose of electrical energy to the heart. </li></ul><ul><li>T-wave alterans A change in the shape of the heartbeat signal on an every other beat basis that is not apparent to the naked eye. </li></ul><ul><li>Right Leg Drive An operational amplifier deriving common mode voltage is used to invert the common-mode signal and drive it back into the patient through the right leg. </li></ul><ul><li>RFI Radio Frequency Interference </li></ul><ul><li>ESD Electro Static Discharge </li></ul>
