I am not positive but, I will answer to the best of my knowledge. They have to place those sticky devices with the wires on certain places of your body in order to track heart rate, and other's for possible sleep apnea, and movements of all sorts. I could be wrong and that is why I want more training to go as far as I know I can and will.

EKG electrodes are placed on the RL, RA, LL, and LA. As well as 6 electrodes on the chest (V1-V6). The RL is used as a ground, but an electrode is still placed on it. Although there are only 10 electrodes, they measure 12 leads. Leads I II & III, aVR aVL & aVF, and then V1-V6. Hope this helps!!
