New Data on the Relationship Between Monitoring Duration and Diagnostic Yield in Patients with Paroxysmal Atrial Fibrillation Will be Presented at HRS

What is the optimal duration of cardiac monitoring for detection of atrial fibrillation (AF)?  

What monitoring methods will result in higher diagnostic yields?

Will continuous monitoring for extended lengths of time improve detection of paroxysmal AF (PAF), which occurs intermittently and accounts for an estimated 25% - 60% of AF events?

Mobile Cardiac Telemetry: Moving Beyond Snapshots to Get a Complete Picture

Dec 12, 2017 9:51:00 AM / by Marek Dziubinski

 ECG technology has come a long way since the early 1900s when five people were needed to operate the first 600-pound machines and patients placed each limb in a bucket of salt water. The first breakthrough in mobility came in 1949 with Holter continuous monitoring device and was followed by even less cumbersome patient-activated intermittent event monitoring systems.

Atrial fibrillation: why it is important to monitor heart rate at rest and during activity

Oct 30, 2017 10:39:00 AM / by Marek Dziubinski posted in Market digest

The American Academy of Family Physicians updated its guideline for the “Pharmacologic Management of Newly Detected Atrial Fibrillation”, emphasizing the importance of not just rhythm, but heart rate control to stabilize disease. This echoes the AHA/ACC/HRS treatment guidelines and reinforces the value of cardiac monitoring to guide the pharmacologic treatment of AF.
