Papel para registro medico or papel para ECG is the term widely used in Chile, Ecuador, and Paraguay. The term refers to electrocardiogram (ECG) paper. It is used with a medical recording machine to read out the heart’s electrical activity. Papel para registro medico is marked with regular lines corresponding to specific time intervals. These lines help the doctor track and interpret the heart’s electrical impulses that are constantly generated.


It has gridlines composed of small squares. Each small square is 1mm long. The paper acts as a graph, with the vertical axis representing the heart’s electrical current displayed by amplitude, and the horizontal axis representing time. Before recording and printing the results, the printer typically undergoes calibration, which involves sending a signal over a brief duration. This calibration signal appears on the paper in the shape of a rectangle.

Why Papel Para Registro Medico Use Thermal Paper Instead Of Normal Paper?

Papel Para Registro Medico is made from Thermal Paper (also called Papel Térmico in Spanish). This type of paper is coated with a material that makes it more resistant to changes in temperature and humidity. It ensures that the recordings are more accurate, as they are less likely to be affected by environmental factors.


Its size and format are dependent on the machine. The main advantage of using this type of paper is that it provides a clear and consistent record, which is essential when trying to diagnose a problem or track a patient’s progress over time. In addition, it is more durable than normal paper. It will last longer and resist damage from moisture and light. The paper is typically much more expensive than standard/normal paper, as it allows for a long-lasting detailed recording.

How To Choose A Good Quality Papel Para Registro Medico

When selecting Paper Para Registro Medico, there are several important factors to consider for optimal performance and durability.


Die-cutting refers to the precision cutting of the paper, and the paper must be clear, free of dust, and without burrs. This is important to prevent paper jamming and damage to the print head, which can disrupt the smooth operation of the machine.

Sensor Mark & Gridlines

The even printing of sensor marks and gridlines is necessary for accurate diagnosis, as these components play a key role in representing time and voltage on the paper. Uneven printing can make diagnosis more challenging due to inaccurate representation, leading to inconsistencies in the results on the paper.

Image Density

The image density of the paper should be dark and vivid for clear and accurate results. Given that the results are traced in milliseconds, any white patches on the paper can significantly impact the accuracy and readability of the results.

Long Image Durability

Long image durability is important due to regulations requiring healthcare professionals to document test results for extended periods, typically 7 to 10 years. Therefore, the paper must maintain the quality of the recorded images over a long duration.

Z-Fold Packaging
The Z-fold packaging of the paper should be tightly shrink-wrapped and neatly aligned, without any disconnection between sheets. This will facilitate continuous printing and protect against dust and water, maintaining the quality of the paper during storage and use.

Roll Packaging

For roll packaging, the \paper should be tightly shrink-wrapped with a free-end roll and a strong core. This helps retain the paper’s shape and prevents it from crumpling, thus reducing the risk of paper jams during printing.

By carefully considering these factors when choosing the paper, healthcare facilities can ensure reliable and accurate results while maximizing the longevity and performance of their machines.
