A relay telemetric system has been developed for the continuous long term recording and monitoring of the electrocardiogram in patients with acute myocardial infarction. We feel that this apparatus is superior to other devices because it frees the patient from all mechanical and electrical contrivances that could contribute to his anxiety and discomfort. In essence, the system consists of a transistorized transmitter attached to the patient and a receiver designed to record the date on a dual-channel magnetic tape. The receiver has an arrhythmia detector sensitive to any change in R-R interval or R wave amplitude.
