Spacelabs VS20 Event recorder



The CardioCall VS20 can be used as a “loop” recorder, using chest electrodes, or as an event unit.

It features 20 minutes of programmable memory and runs on a single AA battery. The ECG may be sent trans-telephonically to a receiving station or downloaded directly onto your PC.

The CardioCall ST80 has an 85-minute programmable memory, for use in patients with more severe syncope episodes. Both offer single- or dual-channel ECG.


  • Event Mode – when the patient has a symptom, they place the electrode feet on the back of the recorder, directly onto their chest and press a button. The ECG is then recorded for a pre-programmed duration.
  • Loop Mode – the CardioCall is attached to the patient by electrodes. When the patient senses a symptom they capture the ECG by pressing the event button. The recorder then stores the episode that includes ECG data that preceded, and followed the patient pressing the event button.
  • Simple to use – one button record
  • Long battery life – a single AA will last over 6 months when used in direct contact mode and over 5 weeks when used in loop mode
  • Fully compatible with ‘Event Station’ transtelephonic receiving station – patients can transmit their recordings directly over the telephone to a receiving centre
  • Reports can be easily attached to all leading EMR systems including EMIS, System One, Vision & iSOFT, as a PDF file
