The service allows to document through an Event Recorder, 24 hours a day, sporadic, symptomatic cardiac arrhythmias.
Palpitations (perceived as irregular rhythm or feeling of missed heartbeat) is a symptom common to many patients and its presence can be difficult to document. The basic electrocardiogram and the recording of the dynamic electrocardiogram according to Holter are the most used methods to investigate this symptom; often they do not give encouraging results especially in patients in whom the symptom is “accessual”. In these cases, the aid of Telecardiology is a valid element in the diagnostic approach.
The Event Recorder is entrusted by the Pharmacist to the user for a period of 7-15 days. The user, when the palpitation symptom occurs, applies the device to the chest, presses a button and records 30″ of heart rhythm that is sent from the device, through the HTN APP, to the HTN operations center where a cardiologist specialist provides for the teleconsultation / telereportation of the arrhythmic event.
The Pharmacist can access the “SmartTelemedicinePlatform” of HTN, to:
- view the sent tracks
- print the report directly
- request a real-time teleconsultation with the cardiologist on duty.
