Innovative Technology Promises Improved Cardiac Care for Patients amid Pandemic

Increasing cardiovascular burden globally and the need for innovative technologies have changed the face of heart care today. With the changing lifestyles and the ongoing pandemic leaving an impact on heart health, the situation has become even more complex. This has led cardiologists to push the envelope and find new ways to treat patients by adapting to new technology.

The pandemic has left the patients opting for telehealth for their cardiovascular care and the people with cardiovascular disease can benefit from the application of telemedicine in the form of remote monitoring and consultation.

One of the key benefits to telehealth visits is access to a cardiologist at a distance, which is vital for individuals who cannot–or do not want to–travel due to concerns over exposure to the virus, lack of transportation, increased family demands or inability to take time off of work.

Tele-electrocardiogram (ECG) home-monitoring is more appropriate in the context of the current pandemic, using patient-friendly mobile phone applications to allow the transmission of ECG reports directly to specialists for analysis.

As far as remote monitoring is concerned, heart patients can bank upon portable ECG devices like AliveCor’s KardiaMobile 6L. It has become easy to keep track of heart health and get instant, accurate results. The US-FDA cleared device can let you take an ECG in just 30 seconds without any hassle of wires and gels.

The device helps you to identify Atrial Fibrillation that can lead to stoke, tachycardia (increased heart rate), and bradycardia (low heart rate). Kardia has high-quality software with A.I., so when it indicates abnormal findings, it encourages you to show the recordings to a doctor.

Before the pandemic, telehealth or telemedicine was largely a curiosity but now it’s a part of technological innovation as a whole especially in the area of cardiology.

While this pandemic may end, the rapid adoption and expansion of virtual care technologies will continue to stay. Apart from the pandemic, there will be other crises that might manifest and the lessons learned in response to these challenges will help chart the course for the future.
