Everist Genomics to Launch CardioDefender: World's Only Mobile ECG System that Delivers Real-time, Beat-by-beat, Quantitative Heart Monitoring Data to Physicians
Date:11/9/2011

rist Genomics.  "CardioDefender enables, for the first time, smartphone-based hospital-quality ECG monitoring of patients 24 hours per day, seven days per week."

The Joint Committee of the AHA/ACC (American Heart Association/American College of Cardiology) recommends that everyone over 40 years of age should be examined for potential heart arrhythmias.(1) In the United States alone, more than 4 million people a year suffer from recurrent arrhythmias warranting a physician's care and about 780,000 people are admitted to the hospital for arrhythmias annually.

Arrhythmias are a very common event—almost everyone occasionally experiences minor arrhythmias that don't require medical attention.  In contrast to these benign cases, however, some arrhythmias result in sudden cardiac death (SCD).  In fact, most cases of sudden cardiac death (SCD) are caused by a specific type of arrhythmia known as ventricular fibrillation.  Ventricular fibrillation accounts for 75-80 percent of all SCDs in the United States.  This type of arrhythmia also is often the first expression of coronary artery disease (CAD) and is responsible for approximately 50 percent of deaths from CAD, often within the first hour after the onset of a heart attack or coronary syndrome.(2)

Identifying patients at risk of having ventricular fibrillation remains a significant challenge.  Although research shows that the risk of ventricular fibrillation is greater among people with a history of cardiac events such as heart attacks and cardiac arrest, only a small percentage of total ventricular fibrillation events actually occur in these patients.(3)  Identification of other types of heart arrhythmias also represents a major challenge as many arrhythmias occur without any signs or symptoms.

Conventional methods for monitoring and diagnosing arrhythmias have included hospital-based ECG systems, portable ECG r
