- Simply, the CEB (Cardiac Electrical Biomarker) is a color-coded index number that measures the degree of multi-polarity (non-dipolarity) of the cardiac electrical field.
- The less dipolar the electrical field is the more likely that patient is experiencing myocardial ischemic injury.
- The cardiac electrical field of a healthy subject is primarily dipolar1, while occurrence of myocardial injury leads to the appearance of a multipolar cardiac electrical field.2
