When you suffer from symptoms or an arrhythmia ( abnormal heart rhythm ) , finding and addressing the source of the issue is imperative. Heart Smart’s advanced heart-monitoring technology and 24/7 support will help your clinician to make timely and informed healthcare decisions.
To accurately analyze your daily EKG data, many doctors recommend that patients wear our heart monitors. Medical and technolgical advances since the early days of bulky heart monitors have led to affordable and highly functional devices that are comfortable, and barely detectable.
Our devices monitor your EKG data, allowing them to detect any abnormal activity. Based on the particular issue, our heart monitors will track patterns for a specified amount of time. Your heart monitor will record periods of irregular activity and wirelessly transmit this data to our 24/7 monitoring center. Our certified EKG personnel will analyze this data and prepare a diagnostic report for your clinician.
When wearing a heart monitor, it’s important to exercise caution.
A normal, healthy resting heart rate is approximately 60-100 beats per minute, though this varies by gender, height, weight and other variables. An arrhythmia disturbs this balance, resulting in an irregular heartbeat.
An arrhythmia can be any irregular heartbeat. This means that the heart may be beating either too slow or too fast.
While patients may be able to detect symptoms, it’s often difficult to develop a complete diagnosis. With our heart monitor, your clinician can examine precise fluctuations and overall trends of your EKG activity to better diagnose your condition. The long-term tracking technology will detect irregularities that are few and far between, which standard EKGs may not detect, with only a short window of opportunity.
Depending on other existing health conditions, as well as the particular nature of the irregularity, symptoms of arrhythmia may vary.
Like arrhythmia symptoms, the causes of arrhythmia also vary by individual. But, the following can either put you at risk for arrhythmia, or lead to a greater chance of arrhythmia.
