Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States, so healthcare providers must identify and diagnose it before symptoms become severe. However, that is not always easy to accomplish since many patients only visit their practitioner once or twice a year.
Fortunately, advancements in medical technology have made it possible for providers to remotely keep tabs on patient heart health. Cardiac monitors track patient data quickly and conveniently enabling them to diagnose and intervene at the right time.
What is a cardiac monitor?
Remote medical technology is making better, more accurate healthcare possible. If you are a practitioner who suspects one of your patients is suffering from a heart condition, you can run tests and obtain the results without the patient having to stay in the clinic or hospital. Cardiac monitoring devices, such as Holter monitors and event monitors, can help you identify or rule out heart arrhythmia so you can recommend the appropriate treatment.
Continuous heart monitoring helps capture irregular heartbeats, an underlying and often undetectable symptom of a significant heart condition. Patients may not feel symptoms or notice a problem. Cardiac monitoring is a non-invasive way to detect arrhythmias and address patient health concerns.
How does a cardiac monitor work?
Cardiac monitors are diagnostic tools that allow you to measure and transmit data regarding a patient's vital signs in a quick and convenient manner. A Holter monitor is an ambulatory electrocardiogram (ECG) device that records the activity of your patient's heart for up to 14 days. These monitors are portable and have
an adhesive patch that sticks to the patient's chest to record the data from their heart. That data can then be analyzed and printed.
Another standard device for tracking heart data is an event monitor. This device makes cardiac data available 24/7 so you can evaluate and respond to patient data and concerns whenever they need you. This quick and convenient data allows you to prepare reports, make better-informed diagnoses, and receive direct notification of patient health quickly.
