Date:6/7/2012

HOUSTON, June 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- eCardio Diagnostics (www.ecardio.com), a leading provider of remote cardiac arrhythmia monitoring, was among eight corporate sponsors teaming up with the Heart Rhythm Society to raise the level of awareness for heart rhythm disorders, particularly Atrial Fibrillation (AF) and Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA).

The campaign launched in conjunction with the Heart Rhythm 2012 Scientific Sessions taking place in Boston from May 9-12. Community awareness efforts occurred throughout the month with a goal of helping the public learn more about the signs, symptoms and treatment options for AF, which affects more than two million people, and SCA, which claims more than 250,000 deaths each year.

"We applaud HRS for the development of such an important program which raises the consciousness of serious conditions like AF and SCA," said Larry Lawson, eCardio's President and Chief Executive Officer. "Arming the public with such valuable information has the potential to positively impact the lives of patients and their communities, and we are honored to have been part of it."

Awareness was generated through two public events, and information distributed throughout the month through media outlets, local physicians and allied health professionals in the Boston area.

One of the events took place on May 9, which was designated as Cardiac Awareness Day in the city of Boston. During this event, the community was invited to board a mobile education unit in City Hall Plaza to receive a free cardiac risk assessment. More than 500 packets of information were distributed that day.

HRS will continue to build upon this program throughout the year, and additional resources related to symptoms, risk factors, prevention and treatment of cardiac conditions are available to healthcare professionals and patients through their website (www.hrsonline.org).
