eCardio Diagnostics, a firm from The Woodlands, Texas, is launching what it calls a “single-component” cardiac monitor called the eVolutionsm. The device is essentially a Holter-type of monitor designed to record rare arrhythmic episodes associated with transient symptoms such as palpitations or syncope. The data is then transmitted to a monitoring center for review via a telephone line or wirelessly.
From the company:
The device provides continuous computerized monitoring by means of a micro-processor running an exclusive auto-detecting algorithm. This technology delivers real-time data analysis, allowing physicians to discover both symptomatic and asymptomatic arrhythmias with speed and precision.
In addition, the eVolution(SM) offers:
A Single Component System, eliminating the cumbersome monitor, modem and base station associated with traditional ambulatory cardiac telemetry systems; Flexibility for physicians to remotely program the device while being worn by the patient; Customized parameters to more effectively monitor changing patient conditions or specific patient requirements; and Convenience for patients with minimal interruptions to the patient’s daily routine.
