Data Processors, Tape Recording
Definition : Data processors designed to acquire and process digital data obtained from signals (e.g., electrocardiographic, electroencephalographic) previously recorded on tape. Data is transferred from the recorder (usually an ambulatory recorder) to the processor (also known as a scanner) for quantification, processing, display, and storage using dedicated software; the processor may also generate reports. Tape recording processors are used to analyze taped continuous and event data; they are intended mainly for the detection of temporary abnormalities and to check the progress of therapy over a relatively long period of time (e.g., 48 or 72 hours). Tape recording processors dedicated for electrocardiographic or electroencephalographic tapes are also available.
