Administering anticoagulation medication is effective at preventing recurring strokes when A-Fib is connected3. This means that catching A-Fib is crucial to knowing which treatment intervention is best at preventing stroke reoccurrence.
The CardiacSense watch is a certified medical device for continuous (24/7), non-invasive, real-time monitoring and detection of patients with A-Fib, with a sensitivity and specificity rate of above 95%6. The device contains a photoplethysmograph (PPG) and a one-lead electrocardiogram (ECG), giving it the ability to measure heart rate and heart rate variability constantly and accurately. In a comparison study, all A-Fib events detected by physicians based on Holter ECG were also detected by the CardiacSense watch5.
The CardiacSense watch provides accurate data for healthcare providers through the easy-to-access Physician portal, facilitating their diagnoses and treatment decisions.
