Noise disturbances may result in misinterpretation. All rhythm disorders must therefore be verified by a physician prior to final diagnosis and treatment.
Regular testing, preferably annually, with the ECG247 sensor is recommended for everyone in the risk groups for atrial fibrillation and stroke:
Age over 65 years
Previous stroke (or TIA)
Established cardiovascular disease
ECG247 is also well suited for examining patients with “palpitations” / experience of fast or uneven heart rate.
ECG247 has undergone extensive testing. ECG247 is approved in accordance with Norwegian and European directives for medical devices (CE approved and ISO certified).
The ECG247 system automatically identifies all common cardiac arrhythmias such as atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, supraventricular tachycardias, ventricular tachycardias and pauses. In addition, ventricular extrasystoles, supraventricular extrasystoles and sinus arrhythmias are detected.
Electrical noise can affect the automatic interpretation and lead to misclassification. All arrhythmias must therefore be confirmed by a doctor.
The heart rhythm signals have different shapes and sizes in different people. We can therefore not guarantee that the ECG247 system finds all arrhythmias in everyone.
The ECG247 app is downloaded for free from the AppStore (iPhone) or Play Store (android).
The sensor can be reused many times. New electrode patch can be ordered in the online store.
Yes, both electrode plastic and sensor can withstand showering, but you must avoid bathing with the sensor.
ECG247 has not been tested in children or pregnant women. We therefore do not recommend use in these groups.
Make sure that children do not get parts of the sensor in their mouths
No, the system is designed to detect arrhythmias.
Yes, the sensor communicates with the phone, which must therefore also be nearby during the entire test. The phone notifies you if the sensor is disconnected. Sensor usually reconnects to the phone automatically. If this does not happen, the test must be stopped and restarted in the app. It is not necessary to remove the sensor or electrode patch.
The user must have a smartphone and must have data traffic included in the subscription.
Yes, but this is rarely necessary since pacemakers and defibrillators themselves monitor heart rate. We therefore do not recommend ECG247 to people with pacemakers
No, the electrode patch including the battery is for single use only. The battery is easily separated from the patch and sorted according to local guidelines.
We recommend at least 3 days.
Some types of clothing, such as technical training clothing over the sensor, may interfere with registration. This is seen as interference with the ECG display in the app, but is not dangerous. The disorders usually disappear after a short time. Exercise that involves the use of the arm and chest muscles can also interfere with the recordings, but the signals usually return to normal after exercise. Such disturbances can cause the rhythm indicator to change color and indicate that a possible rhythm disturbance has been detected. In such cases, the rhythm indicator in the app can be reset by stopping the test and then starting a new test without removing the sensor.
Yes, you can save a recording of your heart rate at a specific time by briefly pressing the button in the middle of the sensor.
Yes, but it can only be connected to one phone at a time.
The sensor can be wiped off with Antibac or similar.
Note: Do not immerse the sensor in liquids.
Cardiac specialist assessment can easily be ordered from the ECG247 app.
The test is assessed by our experienced Norwegian cardiologists. The report will be available in the app when it is finished.
Please note that only results from the ECG247 test are assessed and described. Any further examination and treatment must be done by your own doctor.
