Feature Highlights

• Signal-acquisition advances,

such as Cubic Spline and

Incremental Median

Updating to help eliminate

baseline wander and STsegment

distortion to

generate clear, well-defined


• Optional full-colour display

screen makes viewing better

than with monochrome

• 15-lead acquisition, storage

and analysis

• Optional ACI-TIPI (Acute

Cardiac Ischemia Time-

Insensitive Predictive

Instrument) generates a

numerical score representing

the probability that the

patient has Acute Cardiac


• Enhanced pacemaker-

detection software improves

sensitivity to artificially

paced hearts

• Extensive customization

from display to final-report

formatting accommodates

the preferences of

individual users



GE Medical Systems Information Technologies has combined its

most advanced resting ECG system with equally sophisticated exercisetesting

capabilities in a single, compact system.

The MAC 5000 incorporates many of the features of our leadingedge

exercise testing technologies to position your facility as the

forefront of stress testing – including a broad collection of proven

algorithms and exercise test protocols.

Advanced algorithm capabilities include true, 12-lead ECG computer

analysis and interpretation, P-wave signal averaging, late potential

analysis and 15-lead ECG analysis – for effective management of

ventricular arrhythmia, atrial arrhythmia and chest pain. The 12SL

algorithm offers both adult and pediatric interpretive ECG and

gender-specific analysis for the detection of acute MI for female


The MAC 5000 with stress option delivers seamless, bidirectional

network communication to the Catalyst MUSE ® Information System.

This speeds archiving, retrieval and management of patient data. This

connectivity, combined with the inherent performance of the MAC

5000 makes it the system of choice for state-of-the-art resting ECG

and exercise testing.
