BSP's HyperQ(TM) Monitoring System will Allow Bedside Detection of Ischemic
Events and Myocardial Infarction (Heart Attack)
TEL AVIV, Israel, February 26 /PRNewswire/ -- BSP (Biological Signal Processing Ltd.) an Israeli company which develops and markets systems for non-invasive diagnosis and monitoring of ischemic heart disease, announces successful results in detecting ischemic events using its proprietary HyperQ technology in resting conditions.
The successful results of the study indicate that the HyperQ(TM) technology, based on sophisticated analysis of high-frequency ECG components, can be implemented in two products: (i) bedside monitoring system for early detection of transient ischemic episodes and (ii) a resting ECG system for sensitive diagnosis of acute coronary syndrome, including myocardial infarction. A highly important clinical application of these two devices is the identification of heart attacks that are not accompanied by changes in standard ECG.
The results of the study showed that both HyperQ(TM) indices detected ischemia more accurately than ST analysis. Overall accuracy of HyperQ-based analysis was found to be 96% for the intensity-based index and 82% for the morphology-based index, both significantly higher than the accuracy of the conventional ST segment analysis at 75%.
"We are proud to present the first results that indicate clearly the HyperQ's strength in ischemia monitoring in a resting condition," said Dr. Amir Beker, Founder & CEO of BSP. "This carries an immense clinical value to cardiac patients, and marks the feasibility of BSP's next product line - the monitoring and resting HyperQ systems, which are planned to be offered to the market by early 2009. BSP will launch the commercial introduction of the HyperQ(TM) Stress System in the US at the 57th ACC Meeting this March." added Dr. Beker.
BSP is dedicated to providing novel, risk free and highly reliable
