5 Ways Cardiac Insight is Expanding Access to AFib Diagnosis and Treatment

To find the right solution, you must first know a problem exists. During AFib (Atrial Fibrillation) Awareness Month this September, cardiologists, electrophysiologists, clinicians, and the wider cardiology community including Cardiac Insight are raising awareness and a collective voice to ensure the public understands the magnitude and seriousness of AFib.

AFib is the occurrence of a quivering or irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) that often leads to blood clots, stroke, heart failure and even death. The toll it takes on patients, their loved ones, and the healthcare system is extreme. AFib alone increases a person’s risk of stroke by 500 percent, yet most people are not even aware that it is a serious condition (Source: AHA). Far too often, it’s left undetected and untreated.

Driving accessibility and adoption of the next generation ECG technology

 

Waves, whether transmitted through bedrock or heart muscle, often forecast future events. But you must know how to listen and leverage the right technology. Analyzing waves to understand source characteristics has always fascinated me.

My career has its very early foundation in what’s under our feet, not beating in our chest. I started my career as a seismologist. The underlying physics associated with seismic waves are very similar to the electrical waves pulsing through cardiac muscle.

Patient-Focused Care and the Increasingly Mobile “Life” Health Record

 

The idea of “Continuity of Patient Care” is extending further past the four walls of the hospital, past the physician office or clinic, into the patient’s home and beyond. Patients can access advanced care and testing in a growing number of diverse settings, including freestanding urgent care, emergency rooms and more recently even in pharmacies. People are more mobile than ever. Our collective efforts should work towards ensuring our individual health record story is just as mobile, as well as accurate and complete.  Simple, right? Maybe not so much, but it’s getting there.

The continued risks and uncertainty of COVID-19 are wreaking havoc on many organizations. The decisions we make today, next week and even next month will have far-reaching impact. In my view, the highest priority is the health and safety of everyone. Clinics and hospitals are temporarily shut down or requiring employees to work from home, experimenting with new communication techniques, or taking whatever actions are available in order to operate.

How My Dad’s Life Might Have Been Different With Today’s Wearable ECG Technology

 

I’ve spent my entire career as a team member innovating technology used by medical professionals. But, <SPOILER ALERT> – I’m not going to cast even a subtle shadow of doubt on new consumer heart wearables like the Apple® Watch or even more intriguing consumer cardiac tech that’s coming. Why put tacks in that road? I say, “Bring on the consumer health wearables!” Find the bad stuff sooner. Optimize early warning systems as bridges to our healthcare professionals. And make us want to use these tools every day.
