The Philips PageWriter TC70 cardiograph is designed to meet high-volume ECG demands where the going is rough but quality is critical. A high-resolution 15 touchscreen clearly displays up to 10 seconds and 16 leads, color-coded for signal quality.
Advanced, yet easy to use
With the PageWriter TC70 cardiograph, each button lights in sequence, simply prompting you to take an ECG as easily as 1-2-3.
Superb clinical decision support
Philips DXL 16-Lead ECG Algorithm provides industry-leading ECG interpretations and a
suite of advanced STEMI diagnostic aids.
The high performance PageWriter TC70 cardiograph features an automated ECG report sequence with integrated wireless transfer of ECGs to streamline your workflow.

The next generation in ECG interpretation
The Philips DXL ECG Algorithm, developed by the Advanced Algorithm Research Center, uses sophisticated analytical methods for interpreting the resting ECG. While in the past ECG analysis programs were limited to 12 simultaneous leads, the DXL ECG Algorithm analyzes up to 16-leads of simultaneously acquired ECG waveforms to provide an interpretation of rhythm and morphology for a wide variety of patient populations. The algorithm reflects newly updated guidelines and recommendations, such as the 2007 AHA/ACCF/HRS Recommendations Part II1, and the 2009 AHA/ACCF/HRS Recommendations Part VI2 for the Standardization and Interpretation of the ECG.
Expanded Diagnostic Capabilities
The Philips DXL ECG Algorithm goes beyond traditional 12-lead interpretation of the resting ECG. It also provides for incremental diagnostic capabilities not associated with analysis programs of the past:
* 16-lead integrated analysis to take advantage of optional right chest and back electrodes to provide extended interpretations for adult chest pain
* ST Maps to provide a visual representation of ST deviations in frontal and horizontal planes, responding to the 2009 Recommendations
* Updated criteria based upon the latest clinical research. Examples include the addition of acute global ischemia and incorporation of updated gender-specific STEMI criteria, as documented in the 2009 Recommendations
* STEMI-CA (Culprit Artery) criteria to suggest the probable site of the occlusion, consistent with the 2009 AHA/ACCF/HRS Recommendations
* Critical Values to highlight conditions requiring immediate clinical attention
* Integrated 15-lead pediatric analysis
* LeadCheck program to identify 19 possible lead reversal and placement errors during ECG acquisition
* Updated statements to reflect new 2007 AHA/ACCF/HRS Recommendations
The DXL ECG Algorithm is available on the PageWriter TC70 Cardiograph with the features and capabilities described above. The DXL ECG Algorithm is also available on the HeartStart MRx Monitor/Defibrillator with a differentiated set of features.
