An advanced, comprehensive cardiac monitoring
system–PocketECGTM – combines and builds on the best features available from
traditional Holter, event and mobile telemetry monitoring. Unlike other
monitoring systems on the market, the recently introduced Spectocor PocketECG
analyzes and then streams full-disclosure rhythm data to a monitoring center on
a continuous basis.
“The PocketECG monitoring system is an advanced milestone in
long-term patient arrhythmia diagnostics that is especially effective in
detecting asymptomatic and rare events, such as paroxysmal atrial
fibrillation,” said Joe Bogdan, managing partner of Spectocor. “The PocketECG
system was developed in response to physicians who demand a monitoring device
that analyzes every heartbeat, provides remote access to full-disclosure ECG
data and generates quantitative statistical reports for all ventricular and
Combining and building on the best features available from
traditional Holter, event monitoring and mobile telemetry systems, PocketECG
provides physicians with the most diagnostic and proven mobile cardiac
monitoring available in the United States, according to Bogdan.
PocketECG monitor features include:
- Easy-to-use technology for physicians and patients
- Each and every abnormal heart rhythm is confirmed by one of
Spectocor’s certified cardiac technicians, a service provided 24-hours a day,
every day of the year.
- Fast and easy-to-use Web site provides remote access to all
reports with full statistics and annotated rhythm strips
- Complete analysis of all ventricular and supraventricular
ectopies, including the total number of occurrences of each arrhythmia, total
burden, fastest and slowest rates and maximum duration of all episodes
- Consolidated, accurate, quantitative reports that help
physicians diagnose quickly, which improves the patient experience
- Full-disclosure ECG transmission and analysis
- Compact and mobile device, utilizing cellular networks for
PocketECG detects an extensive list of arrhythmias:
- Full heart rate statistics including maximum and minimum
heart rates, tachycardia, bradycardia, pauses
- All ventricular and supraventricular ectopies, including:
Afibrillation, pauses, asystole, IVR/AIVR, VTach, couplets, triplets, bigeminy,
trigeminy, runs and even single beats
- Total, beat-by-beat burden for Afib, heart rate, PVCs, PACs
- “Patient-triggered” transmissions provide correlation
between symptoms and patient activity with potential arrhythmias
PocketECG’s comprehensive system unifies all types of
arrhythmia diagnostic methods. All cardiac rhythm abnormalities are confirmed
by certified cardiac technicians. “Other event monitoring and mobile telemetry
systems do not transmit full disclosure data and have very basic algorithms,
which are incapable of detecting ectopies with short durations such as a 4-beat
VTach, SVT, trigeminy, bigeminy, triplet, couplet, PVC or PAC,” said Bogdan.
Spectocor provides three layers of physician support and
patient care that work in sync. Clinical and patient care specialists are
assigned to each patient with oversight by senior leadership. Spectocor’s
certified cardiac technicians are adept in discerning when to alert a physician
regarding a patient’s arrhythmia.
Highly accurate in terms of specificity and sensitivity, the
PocketECG system’s proprietary algorithms are based upon thousands of hours of
real-life ECG recordings from Holter systems and intensive care units.
Additionally, the PocketECG system has demonstrated high accuracy in
side-by-side tests against Holter systems conducted in a clinical setting, as
well as against standard MIT-BIH and AHA databases.
