Precordial ECG mapping has been the subject of much study, yet a multi-electrode system that can easily and repeatedly be applied to a patient in bed, remains undescribed. A matrix of ECG electrodes has been developed, which uses a vacuum pump to suck onto the patient's chest. This will facilitate repeated bedside examination of certain types of patient.
