InstantCheck Hand-held ECG device to help monitor firefighters (KSL Television & Radio, Salt Lake City UT)
The InstantCheck Real Time Display ECG monitor is a personal single lead electrocardiographic monitor that records user's cardiac functions and displays the data in a clear and precise waveform for daily health check. This device is intended for self-testing by adult users who might experience transient symptoms that may suggest cardiac conduction abnormity or by adult users whenever they want to have routine checks. Detecting and managing irregularities in the heart at an early stage is crucial to preventing worsening of heart diseases. The pocket-sized device is only 170g (6 ounces) and is an ideal tool for millions of patients who suffer from atrial fibrillation (A-Fib) and other erratic heart rhythm conditions.
With its patient-activated continuous recording mode, the InstantCheck may also function as a simple remote event recorder for patients who experience symptomatic or asymptomatic arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation; have a history of cardio-thoracic surgery; or are taking certain heart medications. Primary care physicians will also be able to pre-screen patients with cardiac complaints, as it provides for an accurate and quick alternative to physical palpitations. The device is equipped with a standard electrode extension, and with a standard USB cable for download and management of the records on a PC.
Due to the ease of use and affordability, it is not only a great pocket tool for both cardiologists and family physicians; it is also a simple event recorder to be prescribed to a patient for arrhythmia detection and management. The device will form a bridge between the cardiologists and their patients, as it offers a solution to check on a patient's heart condition between two visits at the clinic, which is a crucial step in the fight against heart disease.
