MOBILE CARDIAC TELEMETRY

Heartrak ECAT (External Cardiac Ambulatory Telemetry) offers physicians and patients the latest remote monitoring technique in arrhythmia detection and analysis.

Because Heartrak ECAT is convenient for patients to use, patients are more likely to comply with monitoring requirements. Patients are connected by electrodes and discreet lead-wires to a small, pager-sized monitor that is typically worn on the patient’s waistline. Patients can go about their normal day-to-day activities without being concerned about finding a landline telephone and calling the monitoring center to transmit or upload their ECG recordings.

The monitor contains proprietary algorithms that continuously analyze each heartbeat for rhythms that may be of clinical concern. Either when the algorithm detects a heartbeat rhythm of concern or when a patient experiences a symptom and presses the record button, Heartrak ECAT will immediately send ECG data to the monitoring center via cellular telephony network. Because Heartrak ECAT records every heart beat for up to 30 days of monitoring, any recording time of clinical interest or significance can be “fetched” remotely and presented to a clinician for further analysis.

Key Advantages:

  • Prescribed for up to 30 days of continuous monitoring to detect illusive arrhythmia or quantify arrhythmia burden;
  • ECG recordings actively sent (via Cellular) without requiring patient involvement;
  • Multi-channel, digital ECG signal (compared to acoustic analog telephone event recorder/signal transmitter);
  • Summary Reports with sample ECG recordings that validate existence and quantify persistence of rhythm abnormalities;
  • Active voice service on Cell Communicator provides for prompt, 2-way voice communication between patient and Mednet, when necessary.
