Wireless Holter: innovation in the service of health
Technology has made great strides in all areas, the benefits can be seen in all areas including that inherent to health. From routine to diagnostic examinations, nowadays it is possible to take advantage of efficient services that can benefit patients, such as the wireless holter that aims to make examination easier and more comfortable for anyone.
Technology useful to the patient
The detection of cardiac arrhythmias
Succeeding in preventing and treating every disease is the goal of every medical specialist and the’wireless holter is a suitable tool to check for any kind of suspected arrhythmia and is also perfect as a screening tool. Can also be used in the field of sports medicine, as due to its small size it is suitable for athletes during training and competitions.
Composition and features
The instrument consists of 4 elements: recorder of ECG, body sensor, data reader, and the software useful to analyze the data itself. Among the major peculiarities should be mentioned its 3 channels, the’WIRELESS, reduced size and weight. Because of these features, the tool is not visible under any clothing, allows for showering by simply removing it the time needed, and does not get in the way during all daily activities.
The’next-generation cardiac holter
In addition to not being bulky and easy to apply, the new wireless holter has the great advantage of being able to record data from a minimum of 24 hours up to 7 consecutive days, and depending on the needs of diagnosis, it is also possible to measure intermediate stages such as 48 or 72 hours.
Monitor the Sporadic rhythm alterations is a very useful function that allows you to avert the onset of any pathology, or keep it under control.
Another advantage to consider is the ease of reading, In fact, thanks to the’absence of wires that moving or oscillating between them can make the tracing unreadable, the data that is recorded can be considered safe and reliable. The new AthenaDiax wireless holter also allows the physician to consult patient data online.
After the period dedicated to monitoring, the instrument is removed by nurses and the data are downloaded from the software, while a specialist can consult them on the web and quickly draw up a diagnosis.
How to wear it
The new wireless holter is worn in a very simple way and after carefully preparing the skin. Button electrodes are attached to the battery and the module is connected. The moment the parts are attached correctly, an orange light will flash, and as soon as the light turns steady and green, the system is applied to the patient’s chests and recording can begin.
Description of the components of the holter’holter
Recorder and sensor
The innovative new diagnostic tool can be purchased at Parimed, a’company specializing in the sale of wireless cardiac holter, on the cutting edge of biomedical technology. The core of the system is the recording memory, Ares, of data that records the patient’s Ecg and motion profile.
The novelty lies in the ability to reuse the form and the quality of monitoring. The body sensor, Zeus, is the battery that powers the recording module, designed to ensure optimal recording for the longest possible time. Fits perfectly to the patient’s body and is equipped with materials that prevent any skin irritation. The battery comes in two variants: one that records up to 24 hours and one that can record up to 7 days, both connected with push-button electrodes.
Reader data and software
The moment the monitoring phase is concluded, Ares is detached from Zeus and inserted into the reader, Iris. The data obtained are entered into the computer and can be examined. The software in charge of data analysis is called Themis and is easily installed on the pc. Its job is to analyze and report on the Ecg and it can be customized with the criteria best suited for the patient.
The moment the tracing is ready, a pdf report is generated showing the data and all noteworthy episodes. The software also groups all episodes into folders, so by opening them it is possible to immediately identify what day the episode occurred and how long it lasted.
An innovative and safe system
The wireless holter represents a major advancement in technology, as it allows for greater diagnostic success, fast analysis of arrhythmia, reduction of artifacts, and rapid and consistent care of. The patient has the ability to disengage the recorder from the electrodes attached to the skin at any time he or she needs it, for example, to take a shower or to perform a particular daily activity that might be hindered by the box.
