Abstract : The paper describes the design of a digital cardiotachometer with an accuracy of greater than one beat per minute and a range of 40 to 200 beats per minute. At each beat of the heart, the time interval between that beat and the previous beat is converted to rate and presented on output lines in parallel binary form suitable for recording on digital magnetic tape.
