Patients and physicians across India and the world have benefitted from Cardiac Rhythm’s revolutionary pay-per-use heart monitoring services.
Our advanced discreet biosensor is a FDA approved, small wearable for both genders for in-hospital & at home use.
An arrhythmia is a problem with the rate or rhythm of your heartbeat. It means that your heart beats too quickly, too slowly, or with an irregular pattern. It can sometimes feel like a “fluttering” in the chest or can also be silent and have no noticeable symptoms. Many arrhythmias are harmless, but some may be dangerous and require treatment and effective management.
In most healthy people, the normal heart rate is 60 to 100 beats per minute (BPM). People with Bradycardia have a heartbeat of less than 60 BPM. Although a resting heart rate below 60 beats is considered Bradycardia, it doesn’t always signal a problem. What counts as an abnormally slow heartbeat for one person may not be the same for another. It can be affected by age and physical condition.
Tachycardia is a heartbeat above 100 beats per minute (BPM). In most healthy people, the heart’s fluid-pumping action results in a normal heart rate of 60 to 100 beats per minute (BPM). Sometimes a rate above 100 beats is normal. For example, when you exercise, your body needs more oxygen than when you are at rest. Your heart meets this demand by increasing the rate at which it pumps oxygen-rich blood to the body.
Other times, a heartbeat greater than 100 beats a minute is abnormal and is the result of a problem with the heart or the irregular electrical signals in the heart. If you have a fast heart rate, it could be caused by a type of Tachycardia.
There are several types of Tachycardia. They are classified by the part of the heart in which they originate.
Premature Ventricular Contractions are also known as PVCs or PVBs (for Premature Ventricular Beats). They are early contractions that occur when the ventricles (the lower chambers of the heart) contract out of sequence with normal heart rhythm. Although they are generally harmless and usually do not require treatment, PVCs may trigger more serious arrhythmias in people with heart disease or a history of Ventricular Tachycardia.
Premature ventricular contractions often cause no symptoms. But you may feel these sensations in your chest:
PVCs most often occur spontaneously; however, they can also be triggered by:
When you visit a doctor to discuss your arrhythmia, be prepared to talk about your symptoms, how long they last and what they feel like. The doctor will want to know your medical history, in particular about heart or lung problems, high blood pressure or thyroid dysfunction, which can cause arrhythmias. You may also receive a physical exam. The doctor will order one or more heart-monitoring tests to identify and document your arrhythmia.
There are many types of heart rhythm disorders and many types of tests available to diagnose them. Common diagnostic tests for arrhythmias include:
This test is the most basic and generally takes place in your doctor’s office, where a healthcare professional places electrodes on your wrists, ankles and chest for a few minutes to record your heart’s electrical activity. The test does not hurt. The timing and duration of the electrical phases of your heartbeat are recorded. The doctor studies the three waves that appear on the ECG. Each wave represents a different part of the heartbeat and tells the doctor about your heart and its rhythm. This test shows a snapshot of your heart’s electrical activity.
This ultrasound test records sound waves in your heart using a microphone-like attachment. When administering this test and evaluating the results, your doctor can look at your heart in motion. The test can provide a wealth of helpful information, including the size and shape of your heart, its pumping capacity, and the location and extent of any tissue damage.
This device is a small portable electrocardiogram (ECG) that you wear on your chest or in a pocket to automatically record your heart’s activity. It records your heart rhythm as you go about your daily activities for 24 hours up to 7 days, and provides your doctor with information about changes in your heart rhythm over that period of time.
Like a holter monitor, this is another small, portable electrocardiogram (ECG) that you wear to monitor your heart’s rhythm. When you feel symptoms, you push a button and the device records your heart’s electrical activity. It is often used with patients who have infrequent symptoms.
Heart Monitoring may be done for the following reasons:
Call Cardiac Rhythm (CR) and fix an appointment for doorstep service.
CR Technician will visit your residence & assist in fixing the biosensor at your convenient time. Technician will explain the use of the biosensor and give you a Pocket Diary/Quick Guide to record your symptoms.
Biosensor records beat-by-beat of your heart ECG for the stipulated number of days as prescribed by your doctor.
CR will call and confirm your convenient time to remove the biosensor. The Technician then revisits your residence to collect the biosensor after the end of monitoring period.
The full disclosure digital ECG report of your heart is sent directly to your doctor. Kindly contact your doctor for appointment.
I’ve used a different heart monitor before that was so bulky and frustrating that I couldn’t complete my doctor’s request to wear it for three days. “I’m so thankful that this time I was given the “Cardiac Rhythm” patch monitor, which was both comfortable and easy to wear. Many times I forgot I even had it on me.
My house is few miles away from my physicians office and it was so convenient for me. A staff of Cardiac Rhythm visited my home spot on time for the hookup and removal of the biosensor, which saved me two visits to my physicians office and the wait.
Comfortable and convenient all through seven (7) days on my body. I got an intimation from the Cardiac Rhythm customer care center stating that I was undergoing an arrhythmia and my family immediately transferred me to the hospital’s emergency where my cardiologist was already waiting for me there. I’m back home. Thank you for the close coordination and support.
