Mobile Outpatient Cardiac Telemetry — also commonly referred to as “mobile cardiac telemetry” — includes a small sensor and monitor that patients can wear during their daily activities.
Outpatient Cardiac Telemetry has an extended memory capable of continuous measurement of heart rate and rhythm over several days. Cardiac events are detected even if the patient is asymptomatic. The recordings are transmitted to a central surveillance center for real-time analysis with possible initiation of anti-arrhythmic drug treatment.
Several studies have demonstrated superior results with the use of Outpatient Cardiac Telemetry over standard loop event monitors in detecting significant arrhythmias.
