The Everist Health CardioDefender1 system is a major advance in ECG monitoring and overcomes the limitations associated with legacy ECG systems.
CardioDefender is the world’s only FDA and CE Mark approved smartphone based, fully mobile ECG system which provides physicians and patients with the quality of hospital-based ECG systems; real-time, beat-by-beat, quantitative heart monitoring and reporting but utilizing the convenience of mobile, wireless technology.
CardioDefender also has the most comprehensive range of algorithms (currently 24 in total) for the automated detection of medically important arrhythmias. These automatically detected arrhythmias can be reported to a cardiac monitoring center and to the patient’s physician.
