PocketECG, the complete diagnostic solution for diagnosis of arrhythmia, provides full disclosure ECG Signal, complete data, analysis and comprehensive reporting. The PocketECG system makes more precise diagnosis possible, even in cases that may go undetected with offline monitoring like Holter and multi-week patch methods.
The good news is that a new technology, PocketECG, offers a complete diagnostic solution making it possible for physicians to monitor their patients remotely. Physicians can now extend the reach of their practices by actively monitoring patients’ heart rhythms as patients live their daily lives.
PocketECG’s constant monitoring captures and classifies every heartbeat, records the onset and offset of every arrhythmia and detects all ventricular and supraventricular arrhythmias, making for more comprehensive and complete data.
PocketECG’s proprietary algorithms run full statistical analyses based on the complete data set, not just intervals in time, like other monitors. The full-disclosure signal is streamed directly to an independent diagnostic testing facility.
PocketECG is a unique technology that combines the quantitative analysis of full-disclosure ECG signal and provides easy-to-read graphical charts, front-page statistical summaries, calendar views of trends and full data sets to create a comlete picture of patient’s heart rhythm.
New Research presented at the 2018 Heart Rhythm Society Annual Scientific Sessions, demonstrated that PocketECG’s extended online monitoring capabilities increased diagnostic yield for paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (PAF) over any other monitoring method, including a 36% increase over the multi-day patch.
|PocketECG comparison with different method and durations||AF burden||DY Results|
|24h of Holter monitoring||≤ 1%||PocketECG 6x higher DY|
|24h of Holter monitoring||≤ 10%||PocketECG 4x higher DY|
|48h of Holter monitoring||≤ 1%||PocketECG 3.5x higher DY|
|48h of Holter monitoring||≤ 10%||PocketECG 2.5x higher DY|
|Multi-week offline patch||≤ 1%||PocketECG 36% higher DY|
|Multi-week offline patch||≤ 10%||PocketECG 25% higher DY|
Research shows that PocketECG’s monitoring methods, which provide cardiologists with continuous, full-disclosure ECG monitoring, extended duration time and measurement of heart rate, at rest and during activity, are more likely to increase DY.
Continuous ECG monitoring and longer monitoring duration times also significantly improve the likelihood of AF detection. Equally important, however, is the reliability, comprehensiveness, timeliness, availability and relevance of the information provided by PocketECG.
PocketECG is a complete diagnostic solution designed to meet all of these critical performance criteria, and more, with its ability to capture and label every heart beat while transmitting full-disclosure ECG signal for up to 30 days.
Which type of mobile cardiac monitoring device can best detect AF? What should cardiologists look for in selecting a monitoring system that will improve diagnostic yield (DY)?
Here are highlights from our white paper, titled New research offers guidance for the atrial fibrillations epidemic, that provides guidance on these critical questions
