Overview

MAC 3500

When you need confident ECG analysis and interpretation, count on the MAC* 3500 Resting ECG System.

The MAC 3500 system is ideal for basic, 12-lead ECG analysis. With our advanced Marquette* 12SL* ECG Analysis Programs, the MAC 3500 delivers the technology you need to support reliable, accurate cardiac assessments.

GE Healthcare has a trusted reputation for innovation and a track record of performance. The MAC 3500 upholds that legacy—and everything it implies.

Benefits

The affordable MAC* 3500 Resting ECG System is designed to help you:

  • Increase productivity with its common interface and intuitive operation
  • Improve sensitivity of emergency physicians’ interpretation of acute myocardial infarction by 50% and cardiologists’ interpretations by 26%, with no loss of specificity1 with its Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) Algorithm. The new ACS algorithm also improved the emergency physician’s acute ischemic syndrome interpretation sensitivity by 53%, while maintaining a specificity of 91%1
  • Speed triage and time to treatment for patients at high risk of cardiac events with configurable critical values and onscreen and printed notifications
  • Tap into the power of MUSE* Cardiology Information System for streamlined workflow and higher functionality with our optional communications package with wireless, LAN, or modem selections
  • Reduce patient data entry time and errors with an optional automated process that includes barcode readers
  • Support your facility's patient safety goals and the Joint Commission's reporting requirements through consistent reporting of critical conditions

Workflow

The MAC* 3500 lets you harness the power of the GE Healthcare MUSE —one of the industry’s leading cardiology management systems—for streamlined workflow and greater functionality. 

Enhanced barcode workflow with orders and ADT download capability work together to help improve efficiency across the enterprise. It’s a system designed to help avoid costly misdiagnoses, automate processes for clinicians, and streamline workflow supporting improved quality of care and reduced cost for the hospital.

ECG Analysis

With the MAC* 3500, you get the strength of our Marquette ECG analysis programs. It’s the same technology that’s found throughout our family of ECG analysis systems, providing you with consistent measurement and interpretation.

These programs continue to be a preferred choice of hospitals, clinics, physician offices and clinical research organizations for their uncompromising quality and reliability.

  • Marquette* 12SL* ECG Analysis Program for simultaneous 12-lead ECG analysis program for adults and pediatrics is one of the industry’s most clinically validated programs
  • Marquette Hookup Advisor* signal quality analysis program reviews and measures ECG waveforms for signs of artifact and interference, helping to avoid poor waveform quality during the recording of ECGs
  • Marquette 12SL with Gender-Specific Interpretation makes detecting acute myocardial infarction (MI) easier in women
  • Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) Algorithm, implemented in the MAC 3500, has been shown to improve the sensitivity of emergency physicians’ interpretation of acute myocardial infarction by 50% and cardiologists’ interpretations by 26%, with no loss of specificity1. The new ACS algorithm also improved the emergency physician’s acute ischemic syndrome interpretation sensitivity by 53%, while maintaining a specificity of 91%1
  • Configurable Critical Values can speed triage and time to treatment for patients at high risk of cardiac events with onscreen and printed notifications. Additionally, the feature can help support your facility’s patient safety goals and the Joint Commission’s reporting requirements through consistent reporting of critical conditions
