1. An apparatus for performing one of 12 leads and 18 leads electrocardiogram on a body of a subject, the apparatus comprising:

  • two electrodes, each of the two electrodes being adjustable on the body to record one or more signal parameters at one or more locations on the body; and

    a device capable of being communicably coupled to the electrodes, the device configured to detect and collect the one or more recorded signal parameters for processing thereof and thereby determining one of 12 leads and 18 leads electrocardiogram,wherein the collected signal parameters are processed prior to transmitting the determined electrocardiogram to a monitoring station;

    the device capable of housing at least one of the electrodes;

    the apparatus further comprising a measurement module, the measurement module identifying locations for placing an electrode, the location calculated by analysis of received input from an electrode, the measurement module transmitting display information to a monitor, the display information indicating the correct placement of an electrode;

    a sensor module for detecting recorded signal parameters;

    a processor module configured for analyzing and enhancing the signal parameters and for transforming the enhanced signal parameters into an electrocardiogram display;

    the apparatus further comprising at least one dynamic reference electrode, the dynamic reference electrode, not involved in direct measurement of an electrical dipole, the dynamic reference electrode shifting for each lead measurement.
