Other companies tell me that they sample at 1,000 times per second, while you are only 175 times per second. Why is that?
The international, AAMI standard for Holter is 128 samples per second. At 175 samples per second, we are 35% above the AAMI standard. We do not compress the data. This means that all the ECG is stored without compression and then analyzed by the software so that you can be sure that nothing is being missed. Another way to think about this is that 175 samples per second is the same as trying to draw 175 small dots on graph paper in 1 second. Obviously, there is no need to have more samples per second.
