Verizon Wireless' Network Supports VectraCor's Ambulatory Cardiac Monitor
Date:1/10/2012

LAS VEGAS, BASKING RIDGE, N.J., and TOTOWA, N.J., Jan. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- From the 2012 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Verizon Wireless and VectraCor, Inc. today said the Vectraplex Holter System is being shown at the Verizon booth (Las Vegas Convention Center, South Hall, Booth #30259). 

The Vectraplex Holter System is an ambulatory cardiac monitor that incorporates an electrocardiogram (ECG) amplifier and a cell module using Verizon Wireless service.  Currently under development, the Vectraplex Holter will use the "Cardiac Electrical Biomarker," VectraplexAMI, which received FDA approval in November 2011, on VectraCor's VectraplexECG System.  This technology will detect ECG changes indicative of an acute myocardial infarction (AMI, heart attack), non-invasively and in real time, and display a derived 15 lead ECG from the acquisition of 3 leads (5 electrodes).  For the first time, a patient can be anywhere on the Verizon Wireless network and the Vectraplex Holter System will automatically send an email over the network to the physician when the patient is having ECG changes indicative of an AMI or other events, allowing the physician to review the derived 15 lead ECG.  The device will also send data on patient-initiated events.

Cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer in the world, and the need to improve the detection and monitoring of a heart attack is crucial.  The current emergency room practice of chest pain evaluation is to connect the patient to a cardiac monitor (3-5 electrodes), then connect an additional 12 lead ECG machine (additional 10 electrodes), and then draw blood to measure serum biomarkers, repeated approximately every three to six hours during an 18- to 24-hour-period.

The Vectraplex Holter System is an ambulatory cardiac monitor that patients can wear at home or in the hospital to detect ECG changes suggestive of an AMI within seconds and derive the 15 l
