Description

It is very difficult or sometimes impossible to discover the real cause of possible cardiac symptoms with ECG tracing or even with conventional 24-hour holter recording. CardioBlue offers a solution for this problem by extending cardiac event recording to up to a week with the convenience of wireless data transmission. CardioBlue constantly keeps ECG data from the last several minutes in its looping memory. Whenever the patient presses the button, the unit will store ECG strips both preceding and following the event (pre-post recording). The device can also make programmed recordings. With CardioBlue it is possible to monitor patients without the use of data connection cables and PC. Programming device and downloading ECG data can be done by a PC, PDA, or various mobile phones using Bluetooth technology. Depending on the type of devices involved in the wireless data transfer, the data can be downloaded, analyzed, viewed, saved and sent as an email attachment. Wireless real-time monitoring allows for the patient’s freer movement during electrode placement check, which is possible even during an ongoing monitoring session. Number of channels and ECG quality are programmable before the recording session. Optimal use of storage capacity is achieved by selecting economy to diagnostic ECG quality, one to five independent channels, and flexible recorded strip length. The beat-by-beat full analysis of ECG data is processed by CardioVisions software.
