The MAC* 1600 Resting ECG System is particularly suited for physicians in offices, clinics and community hospitals.

The MAC 1600 system can be easily configured to meet the needs of nearly every practice. With quick assessment of the ECG signal quality, the availability of the GE Marquette* 12SL* ECG Analysis Program, and an easy connection to GE CS and MUSE* Information Systems, the new MAC 1600 couldn’t be smarter.

The MAC 1600 is part of GE’s legacy of innovation in ECG acquisition and analysis with a modern system designed with input from users around the world.

The MAC 1600 is designed to offer:

  • Diagnostic confidence through the proven Marquette 12SL ECG Analysis Program that assists physicians in making appropriate diagnoses and treatment decisions for their patients
  • Simplified workflow through connectivity with MUSE* and CS Information Systems. The MAC 1600’s usability and configuration modes include resting ECG, rhythm and arrhythmia
  • Signal quality with the Marquette Hookup Advisor*. This exclusive GE algorithm goes beyond simple electrical checks to advise clinicians of poor waveform quality during the recording of ECGs.
  • Scalability through a system that adapts to your needs and allows you to add exercise testing, with options for communication and ECG analysis, at any time
  • Easy configuration as the MAC 1600 automatically captures 10-second ECGs with one-touch operation. Additionally, you can select the rhythm ECG mode to continuously review all 12 leads, or the arrhythmia mode for an extended review of arrhythmias or events


Designed with input from users across the globe, the MAC* 1600 features an intuitive, easy-to-learn interface, clear color display and an adaptable configuration.

  • Intuitive – The soft key menu makes patient data entry easy and fast
  • Clear – The 7'' color WVGA gives crystal clear review of the ECG waveform
  • Digital – Onscreen review of your ECG saves paper and costly repeat ECGs
  • Transportable – The MAC 1600 can be easily transported. Its advanced Lithium Ion battery permits three hours of continuous use
  • Disinfection – Hospital-grade keypad allows for easy cleaning and maintenance
  • Secure – The MAC 1600 offers user ID and password protection for patient data privacy, helping you to meet HIPAA requirements


The MAC* 1600 is capable of seamlessly connecting to the MUSE* and CS Information Systems, it also adapts to your specific needs and can be expanded as those needs grow. Full connectivity enables you to streamline your ECG workflow and improve efficiencies.

  • EMR ready – The MAC 1600 connects easily to your EMR system through GE’s CS diagnostic system software
  • Seamless – Connectivity with MUSE and CS can help clinicians increase departmental productivity. The MAC 1600 quickly sends complete patient ECG data for immediate remote review or overread. Optional communication packages include LAN, internal modem and direct serial line
  • XML – ECG records can be exported in XML format, from internal memory to a secure digital (SD) card

ECG Analysis

Marquette* ECG Analysis Programs are a preferred choice in a variety of care settings and industries, including hospitals, clinics, physician offices, and clinical research organizations (CROs).

  • Marquette Hookup Advisor* Signal Quality Analysis Program makes our world-renowned ECG analysis program even better. This software reviews and measures ECG waveforms for signs of artifact and interference, advising clinicians of poor waveform quality during ECG recordings
  • Marquette* 12SL* ECG Analysis Program for adults and pediatrics is one of the industry’s most thoroughly documented, simultaneous 12-lead ECG acquisition analysis programs (Optional for the MAC 1600)

Service & Support

We stand behind you. So you can stay in the lead.

The MAC* 1600 system brings you improved functionality and clinical workflow while maintaining the familiar look and ease of use you expect from a GE Healthcare ECG system. And our training programs ensure that you get the most from your ECG equipment investment while supporting the ongoing education of your clinicians.

GE Healthcare offers a variety of ways to support your initial and ongoing training needs:

EMR Connectivity

GE Healthcare Diagnostic Cardiology products and systems enable you to access the data you need, whenever and wherever you need it.

Our ECG management solutions — EMR Gateway, CS Diagnostic System, and MUSE* Cardiology Information Systems — are compliant with open database connectivity (ODBC) and provide seamless connectivity to your facility’s HIS and EMR. With them, you gain the advantages of enhanced administrative workflow, automatic billing and charge capture.

The MAC* 1600 connects to your EMR system through GE's CS Diagnostic System. And connectivity with MUSE and CS can help you increase departmental productivity and reduce errors. The MAC 1600 quickly sends and receives complete patient ECG data for immediate review of overread.

MUSE currently has more than 925 individual interfaces to HIS/EMR vendors, including:

  • Cerner**
  • Centricity** Cardiology Data Management System
  • eGate
  • Iatric Systems
  • Keane**
  • McKesson**
  • Orion Health
  • Siemens Soarian**
  • Cloverleaf**
  • Eclipsys**
  • Epic**
  • Centricity Enterprise (formerly IDX Carecast)
