Cardiac Arrhythmia Monitoring

LifeWatch Cardiac Event Monitoring Services
LifeWatch offers the widest selection of Auto-Detect, Standard looping monitors, and non-looping monitors. 
 
LifeStar AF Express Auto-Detect Looping Monitor
The LifeStar AF Express continuously records the heart rhythm and automatically saves the pre-event portion of the ECG while continuing to record its post-event portion. Its unique algorithms detect and automatically record asymptomatic events.
 
Features
  • Simple one-button recording for symptomatic events
  • Programmable triggers
  • 10 minutes of programmable pre and post event memory
  • Date and time stamped
  • Auto-trigger and manual send
  • Auto-trigger of AF, bradycardia and tachycardia
  • Event monitoring for up to 30 days
    Typical Use:
    Symptomatic/Asymptomatic Tachycardia, Bradycardia and Atrial Fibrillation

    Standard Programming
  • AF Trigger ON
  • Tachycardia 150
  • Bradycardia 40
  • Pre-symptom 60 seconds
  • Post-symptom 30 seconds  
    Explorer Looping Monitor
    The Explorer looping monitor continuously records a patient's ECG. When an event is manually recorded, the monitor automatically goes into a loop-mode to save the selected pre-symptom portion of the ECG rhythm, while continuing to record a post-symptom portion of the ECG. Patients are monitored with looping cardiac event monitors for up to 30 days.
    Features
  • 8 minutes of programmable memory
  • Date and time stamped
  • Programming for 6 events
  • Pre-symptom: 60 seconds
  • Post-symptom: 27 seconds
  • Event monitoring for up to 30 days
  • Lightweight design
    Typical Use:
    Symptomatic transient arrhythmias

    Micro ER Non-looping Monitor


    Non-looping cardiac event monitors are suitable for patients with sustained symptoms of over 60 seconds or for those with electrode sensitivity issues. The Micro ER single-lead ECG non-looping event monitor can record and store up to 32 seconds of real-time ECG in solid-state memory. Each monitor can store up to 6 events before it is necessary to transmit the information over the telephone. Non-looping cardiac event monitors do not require lead wires as the unit has built-in electrodes. When a patient feels a symptom, he or she places the monitor against their chest and presses a button to make a recording.

    Typical Use:
     Sustained Symptoms and Electrode Intolerance 
     

    Advantages

  • Extended Memory holds 6 recordings of 30 seconds each
  • Extended battery life
  • Lightweight
  • Date and time stamped
  • No electrode irritation

    Standard Programming

  • Post Symptom-30 seconds
