Los Angeles Cardiology Associates is now offering new event monitoring technology. CardioNet has developed an integrated technology and service--mobile cardiac outpatient telemetry (MCOT)--which enables heartbeat-by-heartbeat, ECG monitoring, analysis and response, at home or away, 24/7/365.
Time is of the essence in diagnosing and treating arrhythmias. Delays can lead to increased morbidity and mortality and cause significant anxiety for patients. But rapidly diagnosing and effectively treating patients with arrhythmia can be challenging. Some arrhythmias occur too infrequently to be detected through 24 to 48 hours of Holter monitoring. Event recorders pose problems with asymptomatic patients and those who have difficulty triggering monitoring equipment. Correlating events with symptoms is often difficult.
CardioNet offers physicians a powerful diagnostic and patient management tool to address these challenges. In a 17-center, 300-patient randomized study comparing CardioNet MCOT with LOOP event monitors, CardioNet proved to be nearly 3x* superior to LOOP event monitors at detecting clinically significant arrhythmias.
