Hi, is it possible to build an EKG monitor with pyboard? and what would be the most suitable screen and the most suitable sensor for this type of project? Thanks in advance.

The display is not the problem. You'll find TFT displays up to 10" with SPI or parallel interface, and drivers for that. My favorite source is www.buydisplay.com. The BIG challenge here is the signal acquiring section to get sufficiently clean signals out of a noisy environment. That should be a combination of analog and digital filtering. The skin probes are not the problem. You can buy them in 100's packs at web stores.
