ARRHYTHMIA MONITORING

Constant Monitoring & Transmission

Millions of people around the world are living with arrhythmia or an abnormal heart rhythm, a condition where a person’s heart beats slower or faster than it should, impacting the flow of blood through the body and to the brain. People with arrhythmia are at increased risk of heart disease and stroke.

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.

Smart Device

Roughly the size of a smartphone, PocketECG is portable, lightweight and easy to use, making patient compliance more manageable. Three leads easily connect from the device to your patient’s chest to reliably provide a constant stream of ECG data. Electrodes can easily be removed and relocated to address any issues of skin sensitivity, without needing to end or restart the study. If a signal is not detected for a prolonged period of time, we will contact your patient to instruct him or her on how to properly reconnect the device

Strong Connection

PocketECG’s easy, single-device configuration eliminates the need for multiple battery packs and charging, as well as potential issues with Bluetooth connections between multiple device. We transmit every labeled beat directly from the ECG monitor to the mobile network.

Whether monitoring a patient for 24-48 hours or up to 30 days, PocketECG captures and streams every beat for a more precise arrhythmia diagnosis.

The Proof is in the Research

Research presented at the 2018 Heart Rhythm Scientific Sessions showed that online monitoring with PocketECG may lead to more timely and accurate diagnosis of Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation (PAF) over other methods including the Holter and multi-day patch.

Key Research Findings:

  • PocketECG allows for better detection of PAF – 36% over the multi-day patch
  • The ability to flexibly extend monitoring duration increased diagnostic yield
  • Online monitoring reduces the time to diagnosis

As illustrated in the bar graph, online monitoring improves diagnostic yield more than any other monitoring approach, including the 24-and 48-hour Holter and the offline multi-day patch.

Designed for Ease of Use

PocketECG’s single-device configuration eliminates the need for multiple battery packs and charging, as well as potential issues with Bluetooth connections between multiple devices. Every labeled beat is transmitted directly from the ECG monitor to the mobile network for analysis. PocketECG also easily interacts with your Electronic Medical Records (EMR) system, and allows for seamless data transfer and digital report signing.
