Easily monitor ECG and respiration using your Arduino with this plug-in shield. The version 2 of this product adds a new SPI pin header making it compatible with newer Arduino devices including the Arduino Yun and 3.5mm connector for the electrodes.
We now include the electrodes and cable also with the shield Just plug it into an Arduino and you're ready to go. The 3.5 mm circular connector provides an easy way to connect electodes to the shield. The other end of this cable has snaps for standard ECG electrodes. We also include a pakc of 10 disposable EG electrodes. It accepts two ECG electrodes and one Driven Right Leg (DRL) electrode for common mode noise reduction.
Another interesting feature of this shield is that you can also measure the respiratory activity using the same two electrodes connected to the shield. The ADS1292R uses a method known as impedance pneumography to measure respiration using the changes in chest impedance caused during respiration.

Onboard 3.3V voltage regulator for low noise
Onboard logic level transalators for Arduino interface
Prototyping area for adding addtional components
Connecting the shield to your Arduino:
Connect the ECG/Respiration shield to the Arduino by stacking it on top of your Arduino. This shield uses the SPI interface to communicate with the Arduino. Since this includes the ICSP header, which is used on newer Arduinos for SPI communication, this shield is also compatible with newer Arduino boards such as the Arduino Yun and Due.
Wiring the Breakout to your Arduino:
If you have bought the breakout the connection with the Arduino board is as follows:
