AliveCor’s Kardia Mobile Electrocardiogram (ECG) device is a mobile heart monitor that allows individuals to detect, monitor, and manage heart arrhythmias with automatic analysis. AliveCor’s Kardia captures ECG recordings of the heart using FDA-cleared machine algorithms in just 30 seconds, anytime and anywhere, providing instant feedback.
From a strip that can be optionally attached to the back of most Apple and Android devices, the device captures an ECG recording and detects atrial fibrillation simply by pressing two fingers from each hand on the device. The app-based service also allows its user to share the data with their doctor for analysis and diagnosis. The rhythm strip is produced as a PDF for diagnosis, sharing and storage into the electronic health record. The European Society of Cardiology, August 2016 AF guidelines state that a rhythm strip is sufficient to diagnose AF.
In addition to ECG recordings, the device can be used to capture shortness of breath, heart palpitations, dietary habits, sleep and exercise patterns.
