# How to use the ECG
Here's some basic info on how to use the ECG functionality of your card10
## Finger ECG
![Top View Harmony Board](top_1-4.jpg "Finger ECG and Pulse Oxymeter")
Your card10 comes with a number of fun things to play with
- 1 : Contact, negative ECG electrode
- 2 : Pluse oxymeter (can [potentially, if at some point supported by software] measure pulse and blood oxygen levels using an optical sensor)
- 3 : Contact, negative ECG electrode (again)
- 4 : Screw (also works as a negative electrode, see [8])

- 5 : COM (for bias)
- 6 : Contact, positive ECG electrode
![Side View Details](side_front_7-8.jpg "Pin and isolation")
- 7 : Pin for soldering/stitching an alternative electrode, if you don't want to use (6)
- 8 : Plastic distancer, works as an isolation (see [4])
- see [ECG Kit Assembly](../ecg_kit_assembly/) on how to solder your ECG cable
- NB: it DOES matter how you connect the kit via USB. if you get a lot of noise, try to turn the connection
Have fun experimenting with the ECG.

* Via the menu: Select the from the menu and press the SELECT button to enable BLE. The board will restart with activated BLE. Deactivation can be done via the same app.
* Manually: Start the card10 in _USB storage mode_ and add a file `ble.txt` with (exactly) the content `active=true` then reset the board.
### basic ECG howto
Have a look at [how to use the ECG](../ecg/).
For better results use [USB-C electrodes](../ecg_kit_assembly/)
## Next
Now it is time to start playing with the card10, writing your own micropython code!
