CONTINUOUS HEART RATE MONITORING
An optical heart sensor continuously measures heart rate. High accuracy PPG allows detecting changes in blood circulation in a timely manner. High or low heart rate notifications provides an opportunity to react to irregular rhythm promptly in the most crucial situations.
TeltoHeart prioritizes measuring heart rate at rest due to challenges with accuracy during movement. This approach helps overcome potential inaccuracies caused by motion artifacts and changes in blood flow. By focusing on obtaining baseline measurements during periods of rest, TeltoHeart aims to provide more reliable data for healthcare assessments, minimizing the impact of movement on accuracy.
WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO CONTINUOUSLY MONITOR HEART RATE?
Heart rate provides information about how fast your heart beats. It can vary depending on physical activity, stress level and other health issues. To detect atrial fibrillation it is essential to monitor heart rate constantly. These dangerous heart palpitations often occur during the night, early morning and may be left undiagnosed.
When PPG detects any heart arrhythmia, a signal is given to measure electrocardiogram on time. 6-Lead ECG precisely detects and distinguishes atrial fibrillation from other arrhythmias. Data shared with the doctor and proper medication prescribed can be life-saving.
