Can anyone who has seen an authentic Apollo EKG print out give me your opinion on this one? It is supposed to be Apollo 12 launch time frame EKG but as I have never seen one before I have nothing to compare it to except the Apollo 8 EKG listed in an early post here on cS (and this does not match that format).

Reading this EKG, it would seem that whoever it belonged to would have a pulse of about 300 at the time it was recorded. That doesn't seem plausible to me.

With the annotation 10mm/sec (nonstandard setting, otherwise you'd be correct at heartrate ~300 which doesn't occur in stable adults) and calipers on my screen I put pulse about 140-150, so plausible, and fits with the (presumed) respiratory tracing below.

No reliable opinion on authenticity, though...

All times are CT (US)
