Cardiac Arrhythmias

If you’ve ever felt like you heart has skipped a beat, you have experienced a cardiac event known as arrhythmia. An arrhythmia is an irregularity with the rate or rhythm of the heartbeat. Common signs of arrhythmia include fainting; feeling dizzy; and palpitations, which are the feelings of your heart skipping a beat, a fluttering of your heart, or an irregular beating of your heart.  You may have noticed palpitations from time to time throughout your life or only just felt them recently. In either case, the presence of palpitations could be a sign of a serious heart problem, so your doctor may recommend using a heart monitor to get information on the patterns of your heartbeat. However, you might be surprised to know that doctors have only recently begun accepting this as a recommended form of arrhythmia monitoring.

Years ago, patients could only have their arrhythmias monitored in a hospital because the technology in those days where limiting due to their size and upkeep. As technology advanced, the availability of portable monitoring stepped into the scene, but not necessarily the spotlight. Doctors didn’t like the new devices because at the time of their creation, they were unreliable. Short battery life, patient reliant recording, and still cumbersome equipment made doctors more likely to recommend the more reliable machines in the hospital. Only as the years progressed, and advances to the technology were made did doctors warm up to and rely on at home monitors to make their diagnosis.

Technology has only continued to advance from there, making it more efficient and convenient for doctors and patients alike. ReactDx has continued this tradition and presents its latest contribution to portable heart monitoring: the SAVI AIR Wireless Event Monitor. This wireless monitor offers the highest clinical yield available and contains the largest amount of storage space available for a monitoring device.
