Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

An accurate and compact electrocardiogram (ECG) device will greatly assist doctors in diagnosing heart diseases. It will also help to address the increasing number of deaths caused by heart disease. Accordingly, the goal of the project is to design and construct an easy-to-use compact 12-lead electrocardiogram device that communicates with a computer to create a system that can continuously monitor heart rate and which can be connected to allied medical systems. The design is based on an ECG receiver circuit utilizing an IC ADS1293 and an Arduino Nano. The ADS1293 has built-in input Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) filters, quantizers, and digital filters, which help in reducing the size of the device. The software has been created using the C# programming language, with Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF), aiding the collection of the ECG signals from the receiving circuit via the computer port. An ECG Multiparameter Simulator has been used to calibrate the ECG device. Finally, a plan has been developed to connect the arrangement to health systems according to HL7 FHIR (Health Level Seven Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources) through Representational State Transfer Application Programming Interface (Rest API). The ECG device, completed at the cost of U$169 excluding labor, allows for the signal of 12 leads of ECG signal to be obtained from 10 electrodes mounted on the body. The processed ECG data was written to a JSON file with a maximum recording time of up to three days, managed by a Structured Query Language Server (SQL) Server database. The software retrieves patient data from electrical medical records in accordance with HL7 FHIR standards. A compact and easy-to-use ECG device was successfully designed to record ECG signals. An in-house developed software was also completed to display and store the ECG signals. Full article
