MediCardia Health has integrated wearable ECG from US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved consumer devices for remote monitoring of individuals with, or at risk of, atrial fibrillation (AF).
This is claimed to streamline AF care through remote monitoring and virtual health services.
Atrial fibrillation is a heart rhythm disorder that impacts over 40 million individuals globally.
This condition escalates the likelihood of stroke by five times, and such strokes frequently result in fatality or profound impairment.
Froedtert Pleasant Prairie Hospital cardiac electrophysiology medical director Indrajit Choudhuri said: “Clinical trials have demonstrated the benefit of both implanted devices as well as consumer wearables and handheld devices in screening for AF.
“Early detection of atrial fibrillation leveraging consumer devices that millions of people already have or have easy access to, could identify and prevent stroke in millions at risk, and is more acceptable to patients than repeated visits to a physician’s office, emergency room or hospital to obtain an ECG.”
