Medicalgorithmics, S.A. (WSE: MDG) today announced the presentation of a large study evaluating online vs offline ECG monitoring methods to diagnose paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (AF), often difficult to detect because of its episodic nature. Research will be presented at the Heart Rhythm Society Annual Scientific Sessions, May 9-12 at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center.

“Monitoring Duration Vs Diagnostic Yield in Patients with Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation: Is Online Monitoring Better than Offline?” (Abstract #9300) will be presented by Marek Dziubiński, PhD, lead author and inventor of PocketECG, one of the world’s leading mobile cardiac monitoring devices.

9:30 a.m., Thursday, May 10
Poster Session II

HRS participants are also invited to visit the PocketECG booth (#1312) to learn more about the study and the company’s complete arrhythmia monitoring solution capturing and recording the full-disclosure ECG signal, symptoms and physical activity for more complete analysis and reporting.

PocketECG is the complete arrhythmia monitoring solution making precise arrhythmia diagnosis possible – complete data, analysis and reporting. Roughly the size of a smart-phone, the remote arrhythmia monitoring device captures and transmits the full-disclosure ECG signal for up to 30 days – providing the onset and offset of every arrhythmia and classifying morphology for every beat. Patient symptoms are recorded on the touch screen of the device and physical activity captured to distinguish between heart rate changes caused by physical activity and those caused by arrhythmia. PocketECG detects complex ventricular and supraventricular arrhythmia including VT, SVT, Bigeminies and Trigeminies and diagnoses Atrial Fibrillation with single beat accuracy. Results are statistically summarized in full-color holter-style reports delivered straight to the clinician through a secure online portal.
