EKC during a stress test; noise filtering

  1. Aug 11, 2008 #1
    Muscle noise is a big problem with our EKG machines at work. Even the slightest movement will overwhelm the waveform being studied; however, EKGs are done during stress tests which involve quite a bit of vigorous exercise. Muscle noise has a different waveform, but it's basically the same thing being measured.

    How is it filtered without disrupting the useful information about the heart?
