NYSE:MDT) today announced the publication of results from a multicenter, prospective study that demonstrated that the company's Reveal([R]) Plus implantable cardiac monitor
recorded arrhythmias in 46 percent of patients with ejection fractions1 less than or equal to 40 percent and who had previously suffered an acute myocardial infarction (AMI).
The PDM is also used by the physician to program the implanted cardiac monitor
and even to view non-transmitted ECGs immediately after capture.
The Biolog cardiac monitor
and the Lifepak 500 defibrillator are both made by Medtronic Physio-Control of Redmond.
According to a report from Medtech Insight, the Holter monitor, a device that records heart rhythms for 24-48 hours, is still the most commonly used cardiac monitor
for the detection of Afib.
The majority of the cardiac monitors
are stationary - meaning mounted at bedsides - but some are on portable carts for easy transport.
The Australian airline Qantas, which pioneered the use of in-flight defibrillators in 1992 and has saved the lives of at least two of its passengers, recently announced that it would begin carrying hospital-style cardiac monitors
To this end, the new generation of ambulatory cardiac monitors
is benefiting from the convergence of light-weight materials, short-range device-to-device communications technology and ubiquitous, high QoS wide area networks.
On a global scale, projections for ECG segment indicate a 35% by 2015 leaving the rest of the market to event monitors, cardiac stimulating devices, remote cardiac monitors
and holter monitors.
Forecasts of BRICSS ECG market value indicate a 35% by 2015 leaving the rest of the market to event monitors, cardiac stimulating devices, remote cardiac monitors
and holter monitors.
These devices are the best ambulatory cardiac monitors
available and have allowed LifeWatch to dramatically enhance our clinical expertise and leadership position in the industry.
At one-fourth the price and a fraction of the size of existing cardiac monitors
, ActiveECG is truly revolutionary.
