How do you want to do this?

- Listening (least reliable)
- Electrically - i.e. ECG - best but most invasive for the person attached
- Optically - pulse oximetry - reliable & easily attached but most expensive hardware option.

A belt is fitted around the chest and a signal is transmitted to a device (e.g. a special watch or an iphone interface and APPlication)
