Please note: The
wave files contain additional information that enables a synchronized ECG visual
playback. This will create a separate tone if the file is played in a normal
audio application such as Windows Media Player. Use the special Player program
for proper playback.
See below for help on how
to install and run the Player program.
In order to assist in
downloading the software (The Player), please read over the following instructions:
- Click here
to download the Player and save it to your desktop
- Run theplayerT.exe from
the desktop by double-clicking on it
- Choose setup from Winzip
extractor (if using windows as your operating system)
- Follow the instructions
when prompted and when asked to choose human version or veterinary version
choose the Veterinary version
- A screen will then pop
up asking you if you would like to make the Meditron Player your default wave
file viewer. If you choose yes it will always open wav files in the Player.
If you choose no your computer will continue to use its normal wave file viewer
(e.g. Windows Media Player). Choosing either response will allow the program
- The Meditron Player is
now installed on your computer. Upon opening the program a sound file will
appear labelled as Demo1.wav - this is not the sound file you wish to hear.
- To download the sound
file, right click on the sound and choose "save target as". Save
the file to a convenient location such as your desktop.
- To play the sound file,
go into the Meditron Player and go to "file" and then "open
sound file" and then select the sound you wish to hear.
Once you have the Meditron
Player installed and working on your computer there are a few setting changes
that you can make when listening to a sound.
- In order to assist in
visualizing both the ECG and the phonocardiogram click on the button that
resembles a magnifying glass with a plus sign in it. Generally between 2-4
clicks is sufficient - ideally you will have either 2.5 seconds or 5 seconds
displayed at one time on the screen.
- There are filter mechanisms
on the sound. To set them move the small arrow on the right hand side of the
screen up or down to the desired Hz level (e.g. 50, 100, etc.). Then click
the small white empty square directly below the filter - this will set the
filter you have just chosen.
