Cardiac Event Loop Recorder
The recorder monitors the heart rhythm continuously using ECG electrodes. It only records an ECG if the patient pressed the record button or if it automatically detects a cardiac arrhythmia, which is previously set in the menu.
The last makes the recorder highly efficient in use because it is possible to note asymptomatic arrhythmias.
The ECGs from the Cardiac Event Loop Recorder are sent to the Tele-ECG receiver via Bluetooth and mobile phone. The transmission of ECGs is done automatically after each ECG, without the intervention of the patient.
The Event Loop Recorder allows up to 15 ECGs in memory. With the automatic transmission of ECGs the memory of the Event Loop Recorder is not exhaustive and the recorder actually has a virtually unlimited memory.
The Cardiac Loop Event Recorder is able to automatically detect the following arrhythmias:
- tachycardia cardiac abnormalities
- bradycardia cardiac abnormalities
- atrial fibrillation (AF)
- ventricular tachycardia (VT)
- cardiac pauses (asystoles)
The automatic detection of one or more of these arrhythmias is managed and programmed in the setup menu of the recorder.
The duration of the recordings is also set in the menu, the so-called pre-event and post-event period. Total duration of the recordings vary between 40 seconds and 7 minutes.
The recorder also includes a timer interval option it can be set between 1 and 99 hours. And will automatically record an ECG according to the setting.
Furthermore the recorder alerts if it does not receive a good signal from the electrodes.
The device can, depending on the settings, be used continuously for 14 to 28 days, and this duration is only limited by battery life (standard batteries).
In summary, the Cardiac Event Loop Recorder offers unique monitoring capabilities of cardiac arrhythmias that no other device on the market have to offer.
