ATRIAL FIBRILLATION DETECTION
The patented algorithm shows high specificity to detect atrial fibrillation distinguishing it from other forms of arrhythmias. It minimizes the opportunity of false-positive alarms, hence less likelihood for mistakes.
Not every irregular heartbeat is health-threatening. Thus detection of atrial fibrillation in many cases may be potentially life-saving.
WHY ATRIAL FIBRILLATION MATTERS?
Cardiovascular diseases have always been a focal point of public health worldwide with prevalent cases nearly doubled over the last three decades. One of the common causes for such diseases is a condition of atrial fibrillation (AF or AFib).
AFib can be described as an absolute arrhythmia characterized by irregular heartbeats and the absence of P waves in an electrocardiogram (ECG). According to recent data, there are around 60 million people in the world suffering from AF, while almost 120 million people may experience undiagnosed and asymptomatic AF. One of the underlying issues AF presents is that it is only diagnosed when complications of stroke or heart failure occur.
