Managing Patients with Transient Cardiac Events-ECG Screening Utilizing Cloud Technology
Date:2/28/2013

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --In 2003, the American Heart Association faced a challenge; cardiovascular disease claimed the lives of nearly 500,000 American women each year, yet women were not paying attention. The fact is heart disease is the #1 killer of women and the American Heart Association, along with the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute created National Wear Red Day® to raise awareness of this critical issue.

ECG screening is an important and easy means to determine an irregular heartbeat (heart arrhythmia), a condition that can cause a stroke or lead to more serious conditions or events. Atrial fibrillation is the most common type of heart arrhythmia and is often associated with palpitations, fainting, chest pain, or congestive heart failure. AF can increase the risk of stroke as much as up to seven times that of the average population.

ECG screening can be implemented to identify the presence or absence of an atrial fibrillation. The screening is painless and simple. Once the patient feels a symptom, such as shortness of breath or tightness of the chest, he or she can activate the cardiac event monitor and record a 30 second ECG trace. The recording can then be sent via smartphone or computer to their physician within minutes of taking a reading. As the patient captures numerous events over a period of time, the physician is able to access valuable trending data facilitating a patients overall treatment plan.

"REKA Health is committed to providing technologies focused on enabling and better educating patients about the importance of ECG screening and maintaining a "healthy heart". Screening for chronic disorders is commonplace in the medical community and the E100 ECG screener offers a simple, low cost option for physicians and patients," said Ron Richard , CEO of the Americas for REKA Health, Inc.
