ECG Amplifier

This circuit allows an ECG signal to be displayed on an oscilloscope. Opamps IC1a, b and d form an instrumentation amplifier with a gain of 201. IC1c amplifies the common-mode signal by a factor of 31, and supplies this signal to the right leg. The first consequence of this is that the body is brought to a defined common-mode level, so that the signal will not lie outside the range of the instrumentation amplifier.
