Those with chronic heart issues understand the value of EKG (electrocardiogram). When symptoms of heart trouble appear, it usually ends with a trip to the doctor for answers.
Three or four hours later these people are often back to their daily routine. Time lost and the expense of a doctors visit are the lasting after effects.
Not so for those with Kardia Mobile.
What if an EKG were available anywhere, anytime?
That is exactly what Kardia Mobile, a product of AliveCor, offers to those with chronic heart issues. A simple SmartPhone app that, when paired with a touch pad, can produce a medical grade single lead strip.
In only 30 seconds, Kardia users know if they have a normal heart rhythm or if they are suffering atrial fibrillation.
Two important points
Many of those who experience chronic heart issues have various symptoms. They have two choices. They can interrupt their day, travel to the doctor and have their heart checked. Usually that means an EKG.
Or, they can journal symptoms and thoughts, and discuss them with their doctor at a regular scheduled doctors appointment.
Both of these offer special life intrusions. To have heart issues is unpleasant enough. The extra inconveniences only adds insult to injury.
Time and money in the first instance, and continued worry and stress in the second.
Kardia Mobile is one real answer
Kardia Mobile is a high tech solution available to anyone with a SmartPhone. Watch the video.
How It Works
Finger pads are sold to the heart patient or their caretaker. They are available on line at Amazon.com. The finger pads, (like those seen in the video) are a small, light weight piece of hardware that when coupled with an app downloaded to a SmartPhone, available for both Apple or Android, will produce a readable EKG line in only 30 seconds.
A normal EKG allows the patience to find relief from worry and stress. An EKG that indicates AF (atrial fibrillation) can literally save their life.
At a price of $99 the device sounds expensive. When compared to cost of a visit to your cardiac specialist, and the in office EKG, Kardia Mobile is an incredible bargain.
