Descriptor balistocardiografía
Scope note: Técnica de representación gráfica de los movimientos del cuerpo impartidos por fuerzas balísticas (retroceso e impacto) asociadas con la contracción cardíaca y la eyección de sangre y con la desaceleración del flujo sanguíneo a través de los grandes vasos sanguíneos. Estos movimientos, cuantitativamente muy pequeños, son trasladados por un dispositivo captador (transductor) a un potencial eléctrico que es amplificado y registrado adecuadamente en un electrocardiógrafo convencional u otra máquina de registro.

Scope note: Technique of graphic representation of the movements of the body imparted by the ballistic forces (recoil and impact) associated with cardiac contraction and ejection of blood and with the deceleration of blood flow through the large blood vessels. These movements, quantitatively very minute, are translated by a pickup device (transducer) into an electrical potential which is suitably amplified and recorded on a conventional electrocardiograph or other recording machine.
