PocketECG: A new continuous and real-time ambulatory arrhythmia diagnostic method

Abstract

This article presents a new approach to ambulatory arrhythmia monitoring, one which can be viewed as a natural evolution of the existing non-invasive methods for diagnosing heart rhythm abnormalities. This new method combines the real-time capabilities of modern mobile cardiovascular telemetry systems with a quantitative way of reporting measured findings and continuous storage of the ECG data typical of Holter monitoring systems. It further combines this with a symptom-reporting capability typical of event monitoring applications. Combining all these features produces a single device which could be described as the ultimate arrhythmia diagnostic tool. (Cardiol J 2011; 18, 4: 454–460)
