Event recorder interpretation service
The ECG Loop Event Monitor is designed to record and ‘capture’ Arrhythmias. It is ideal for patients whose symptoms are irregular / intermittent.
The ECG unit is worn unobtrusively and comfortably. The ECG unit records the heart rhythm for up to a week. When a patient feels a cardiac sensation, they simply push a button which then ‘captures’ the recordings (30 seconds prior to, and 30 seconds after the press of the button).
The device can also be used as a standard event monitor by placing thumbs on the touch pads whenever patient feels a cardiac sensation. The device will then ‘records’ 30 seconds of the heart rhythm.
After ‘capturing’ (up to) 5 such events, patients return the unit to the surgery for electronic transmission to the Broomwell Cardiac Centre, where the ECG traces are analysed and reported on, by expert cardiac clinicians, on the same day (or, immediately, in case of urgency).
Broomwell’s reports can be easily filed in all surgery electronic filing systems.
