Heart Sound Recorder (HSR)

What is the Heart Sound Recorder?

The Heart Sound Recorder (HSR) is a general wellness heart stress monitor used to acquire, display, record, and save heart sounds. This heart stress monitor records and displays the low frequency component of the heart cycle as a waveform on a computer for the purpose of creating a visual graph of the rate, rhythm, and tone of the heart cycle. This can be used on-going to assess and compare current and previous heart cycle waveforms for before-and-after analysis and trending purposes!

It’s vital that your heart has the proper nutritional balance in order to keep the correct rate, rhythm, and tone.
Have your heart checked for these important factors by having our wellness specialists give you a quick evaluation with the Heart Sound Recorder.

Certain types of heart stress can be monitored by seeing the
RATE, RHYTHM, & TONE of the heart cycle on the graph.

♥ Your nervous system controls the RATE at which your heart beats. One side of
your nervous system (sympathetic) manages your “fight or flight” response and
can accelerate your heart rate. The other side (parasympathetic) manages your
“rest and digest” response and can slow your heart rate. You need a healthy
balance between the two.

♥ The RHYTHM of your heart should show a specific work to rest ratio on the
graph. Your heart should be resting twice as long as it is working. Observations
are made to see if your heart is working too hard, or not working hard enough.

♥ The TONE of your heart is referring to the strength of the ventricles as they
push blood through your body. The height and the width of the ‘lub dub’ sound
your heart makes on the graph, shows how efficiently your heart is pushing
blood through your body and refilling to prepare for the next cardiac cycle.
