Q & A for Healthcare Professionals

Regular testing, preferably 1-2 times annually, with ECG247 is recommended for everyone at risk of atrial fibrillation and stroke

  • Age >65 years
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Previous stroke (or TIA)
  • Cardiovascular disease

ECG247 is also well suited for examining patients with palpitations and rapid heart rate

ECG247 has undergone extensive testing and is approved in accordance with European medical device directives (CE approved and ISO certified)

The ECG247 automatically identifies common cardiac arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, supraventricular tachycardias, ventricular tachycardias and pause. In addition, ventricular extrasystoles, supraventricular extrasystoles and sinus arrhythmia are detected.

Disturbances from static electricity and muscles can interfere with the automatic interpretation. All arrhythmias should be verified by a physician.

The heart rhythm signals have different shapes and sizes in different people. We can not guarantee that the ECG247 system finds all arrhythmias in everyone.

The sensor can be reused many times. New electrodes can be ordered from the online store.

You can take a shower, but you must avoid bathing with the sensor

A smart phone is required for the test

We recommend 3 days or longer if possible

The sensor can be cleaned  with a cloth. Disinfectant can be used.

 

Note: Do not immerse the sensor in liquids.
