1. An apparatus for detecting and displaying a mammalian ECG waveform, comprising:

  • a sensor having at least two electrodes adapted to be worn on a mammalian body, the first of said electrodes mounted to detect a first aspect of heart-related electronic signals at a first location within an equivalence region of said body, the second of said electrodes mounted to detect a second different aspect of said heart-related electronic signals at a second location within said equivalence region;

    a processing facility in electronic communication with said sensor, said processing facility receiving said first aspect of said heart-related electronic signals from said first electrode and said second aspect of said heart-related electronic signals from said second electrode, said processing facility applying at least one mathematical operation defining the association of said first and second aspects of said heart-related electronic signals with an ECG waveform to said first and second aspects of said heart-related electronic signals, said processing facility further deriving an ECG waveform having P, Q, R, S and T components from said heart-related electronic signals utilizing a wavelet transformation analysis; and

    a display device which illustrates at least one of said P and T components of said derived ECG waveform.
