22-lead mobile ECG enables 360-degree view of the heart
The conventional 12-lead ECG has surely proven its worth in the diagnosis of cardiac disease. Nevertheless the display possibilities of a 12-lead ECG are limited to only 65 degreesin the transverse plane. This might be one of the reasons up to half of people who suffer from angina or silent ischemia, have normal ECG readings2. In Europe alone, Coronary Artery Disease still accounts for 4 million deaths every year.3 Symptoms for myocardial infarction are often indistinct while about one out of three heart attacks occurs symptom free4 which makes precise diagnosis even more difficult. Next to modern therapy options the need for enhanced diagnosis tools supporting physicians is crucial.
Quality and accuracy of the mobile ECG solution CardioSecur has been validated in a clinical study against standard of care 10 electrode, 12-lead ECG systems and shows 99.5% accuracy.5 Using only 4 electrodes mitigates artifacts to a bare minimum ensuring maximum signal quality and exceptionally stable lead depiction. As the 4 electrodes are placed on very marked positions of the thorax, lead misplacement, often consequential to highly divers anatomies, is eradicated.
Professional and Patient Version based on identical smart technology
CardioSecur has been developed by cardiologists in two versions: The professional 22-lead version CardioSecur PRO enables use in house calls, bed-ridden or reduced mobility patients as well as emergency situations. The lightweight 50g cable is accompanied by the PRO app which allows 10.000 minutes of ECG recording per 1GB via smartphone or tablet PC. The full ECG report can be sent directly to electronic patient records or colleagues and can be air printed. An automatic interpretation function is also available.
CardioSecur ACTIVE is the convenient 15-lead patients’ version of the mobile ECG enabling doctors to get data from the very moment patients suffer from cardiac symptoms. CardioSecur ACTIVE can be used in patients with undiagnosed symptoms, high risk patients as well as those who have had a cardiac event. While patients get simple instructions to act and – if necessary – contact their physician, the ECG is sent via email to the medical specialist for further use. Shared via a secure database helpful information for diagnosis and patient management is generated.
