How Cardiac Rhythm’s Remote Patient Cardiac Monitoring Helps Physicians to Monitor Asymptomatic Cardiac Event Detection?

Heart-related conditions such as coronary heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure tend to come about asymptomatically. It’s no surprise that these conditions have more or less earned the silent killer tag in recent years, especially if we consider their relative prevalence in these modern times. It’s their sheer lack of the symptoms that make them a whole lot trickier to address.

Nonetheless, it’s heartening (no pun intended) to know that there are now sophisticated Holter monitoring services that are now able to tackle this challenge head-on. With a more advanced cardiac telemetry monitoring service like Cardiac Rhythm, these asymptomatic cases can also be detected. As to how this is made possible, you only need to dive a little deeper into its capabilities.

Cardiac Rhythm aims to be a one-stop mobile cardiac telemetry service. Basically, it will provide you, the physician, with not only the devices you need for monitoring but also the personnel that will be attaching the monitor to the patient and managing the data gathered through reports for your swift and easy reference.

An advanced Faros biosensor makes up the main half of this heart ECG monitoring report service. It will be the one doing all the monitoring with the help of a more sophisticated Holter monitor that can record every heartbeat of the patient for the amount of time that you prescribed remote cardiac monitoring for. 

The solution offers a maximum of 14 days of continuous, in-depth monitoring, regardless of setting (i.e. home or hospital), gender, and without intervening with your patient’s daily activities. 

The Standout Features of This Remote Patient Cardiac Monitoring Service

What makes the solution stand out is the way it makes use of a discreet cardiac event monitoring biosensor as well. It uses an “advanced diagnostic and clinical-based algorithm” that can automatically detect abnormal heartbeats as well as cardiac events that may arise as a result of the patient’s activities. To ensure the accuracy of the monitoring, each heartbeat that is recorded relies on a signal whose clarity has been especially improved. 

No less than all the different types of arrhythmias at present are supported and can be detected by these diagnostic tools, namely tachycardias, bradycardias, premature ventricular heartbeats, and standard atrial fibrillations. 

Parameters such as P-wave analysis, heart rate trends, QRS morphology, and heart pauses are detected and accounted for, too. All the while, the data derived from the monitors will be transmitted in real-time to a dedicated monitoring center for timely interpretation and delivery to you.

All of these are made possible wirelessly and with steady 24/7 availability with the help of cloud technology. The subsequent reports that will be made pertaining to the patient’s duration of monitoring are highly customized and specific to his or her heart’s present condition. 

How Is Cardiac Rhythm Able to Detect Asymptomatic Cases?

With all its features laid out above, how exactly is Cardiac Rhythm able to pinpoint asymptomatic cases? More often than not, asymptomatic cases don’t cause the usual flutter that many patients feel when an abnormal heartbeat occurs. 

Well, what makes this remote cardiac monitoring service unique, as proven by the facts outlined above, is that it’s able to detect arrhythmias that you normally won’t be able to detect as they manifest no symptoms at all. We don’t need to look further than its ability to detect seemingly benign and asymptomatic premature ventricular contractions to see it’s true value. 

After all, PVCs can trigger more dangerous abnormal heartbeats in people, especially in those who have already shown a history of having ventricular tachycardia. Such arrhythmias are not without their risk, and what’s worse is that they’re rarely diagnosed as soon as possible (i.e. the best times when timely and life-saving interventions can be made by cardiac doctors).

In the end, Cardiac Rhythm is a solution that doesn’t take things for granted. It doesn’t settle for anything less than the close monitoring of each and every heartbeat produced by the patient being monitored and with a diagnostic yield of 63% even among patients that are considered as low-risk, it proves that every cardiac patient deserves closer and more vigilant monitoring. 

But it doesn’t stop there. With everything considered, here are some of the other features and benefits of Cardiac Rhythm Monitoring, that can help you in the detection and handling of asymptomatic cases:

  • It also integrates a classification engine that will give you and other cardiac doctors hints when interpreting the heart data and when diagnosing arrhythmias. This way, you’ll always be able to verify the data that is being relayed to you.
  • You can view the data that is already available based on the parameters that you wish to focus on. We can’t deny that paying attention and double-checking certain parameters could lead to a better diagnostic process.
  • The data derived from monitoring will always be available to you 24 hours, and the solution also leaves no stone unturned in the fact that it also has a dedicated manual monitoring team that will always verify the patient’s data in real-time. 
  • We also can’t deny the notable savings in resources that you can enjoy as a result of not having to develop your own infrastructure and tools that would make the detection of asymptomatic cases. This, of course, is not considering the running costs of maintaining such a platform and the continuous expenses entailed by hiring a staff to help you manage it. 
  • In the end, with a more vigilant approach and outstanding detection rates, it would also be far easier to convince the patient to cooperate and invest themselves in the treatment that he or she has to undergo. 

Conclusion

Cardiac Rhythm is clear proof that it’s vital to be careful in the remote heart monitoring service that you choose to avail of. Detection of asymptomatic cases is a feat rarely achieved by previous Holter monitor incarnations, after all. Ultimately, its real value lies in the fact that the detection of such cases has an immense and terrific potential to save lives.
