  author={Martin J. Burke and Orla C Tuohy},
This paper investigates the low-frequency response of a multi-stage bioelectric amplifier intended for use in the measurement of the electrocardiogram (ECG) using dry contact electrodes. These electrodes have an impedance which is typically an order of magnitude greater than that of the standard disposable self-adhesive electrodes used in clinical ECG recording. The design was undertaken with the intention of exploiting micropower CMOS operational amplifier technology to minimise power in… CONTINUE READING
