AliveCor to showcase heart monitor at American Heart Association Scientific Sessions

AliveCor announced that it is attending the American Heart Association Scientific Sessions taking place at McCormick Place in Chicago, from November 15-19. There will be many opportunities to learn more about the AliveCor Heart Monitor at the conference, including:

In-booth presentations and product demonstrations: AliveCor will offer in-booth presentations and product demonstrations on the clinical capabilities of the AliveCor Heart Monitor and the AliveECG app.

Atrial Fibrillation (AF) Detector: Learn more about AliveCor’s new FDA-cleared automated analysis process (algorithm) that instantly detects if patients are experiencing AF through real-time electrocardiogram (ECG) recordings taken on the AliveCor Heart Monitor, so intervention can take place before potentially life-threatening conditions, like strokes, occur.

A study published in the June 2014 issue of Thrombosis and Haemostasis demonstrated feasibility and cost effectiveness of stroke prevention through community screening for atrial fibrillation using iPhone ECG in pharmacies: Nicole Lowres et al. Thrombosis and Haemostasis 2014: 111/6 (June) pp. 1007-1199.

A study published in the May 2014 issue of Australian Family Physician reported findings on iPhone screening by practice nurses and receptionists for atrial fibrillation in general practice: the GP-SEARCH qualitative pilot study: Jessica Orchard et al. Australian Family Physician Volume 43, No.5, May 2014.

The AliveCor Heart Monitor’s medical grade ECG recordings can also be shared directly with a physician, or sent to a US board-certified cardiologist or a US-based cardiac technician through a cloud-based ECG analysis service provided by AliveCor.

In as little as 30 minutes users can receive expert reviews of their ECGs directly through the AliveECG app providing a more complete picture of their current heart health.
