The Need For Change

Remarkable strides have been made in cardiovascular disease patient care, diagnostic imaging systems, thrombolytic and anti-arrhythmia medications, coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) procedures, more flexible pacemakers, and implantable cardiac defibrillators (ICDs).

Unfortunately, life-threatening delays in diagnosis and treatment sometimes keep patients from benefiting from these medical advances. Patients who have episodic cardiac problems such as atrial fibrilation, syncope or drug-related arrythmias are often difficult to diagnose and manage with currently available monitoring technologies. Delays in treatment can result in stroke, permanent disabilities, even death.
