Islanders make the most of free heart checks
To generate a Lead I ECG, rest the electrodes on the fingers from each hand (iPhone Home button should be on the right). The app senses skin contact on the sensors and when an acceptable connection is made it counts down to initiate the ECG recording. Set your app to take 30 second, and up to continuous, rhythm strips. While the ECG records it will also display heart rate. ECGs over 10 seconds are automatically saved in the app for review and can be annotated with details or can be discarded. ECGs can be inverted if needed and gain and paper speed adjusted as well.
In clinical trials, the AliveCor Heart Monitor demonstrated clinical efficacy. The Heart Monitor is an ideal tool for quick, accurate screening and recording.
Our clinical-quality, single-channel ECG recorder leverages the power, display, and communication capabilities of the iPhone 4, 4S and 5. The Heart Monitor does not use power from the iPhone, but utilizes a 3.0V coin cell battery that will take up to roughly 10,000, 30-second ECGs before needing replacement. The Heart Monitor also uses AliveCor’s proprietary wireless communication protocol to communicate with the app, and requires no pairing between the iPhone and the Heart Monitor.
At only $199.00*, the AliveCor Heart Monitor gives you instant, portable screening opportunities. Utilize the device anytime, anywhere to evaluate heart rate and rhythm.
This Class II medical device snaps onto your iPhone 4, 4S or 5 like a case and wirelessly communicates with the app on your phone. No pairing between your iPhone and the Heart Monitor is required. iPhone and the Heart Monitor is required.Buy Now

"The ability to get an ECG on a Smartphone is remarkably transformative—an icon of how medicine of the future will be radically rebooted." Eric Topol, M.D.
Research studies currently in progress to explore effectiveness in the following:

iPhone Rhythm Strip: Clinical Implications of Wireless and Ubiquitous Heart Rate Monitoring
Anytime ECG monitoring, as an adjunct to a smart phone, is intuitive and allows users to learn about and characterize their heart rates and rhythms. It provides global identification of arrhythmias at any time. The implications of this technology for improving public awareness of health metrics and for the early diagnosis of arrhythmias in large patient populations are enormous.
The iPhone-based event recorder is an accurate clinical tool for ECG assessment and could prove to be a new tool for allowing immediate recording and analysis of an ECG rhythm. Additional analysis of QT interval and QRS duration is needed.

Validation of an iPhone ECG Application Suitable for Community Screening for Silent Atrial Fibrillation: A Novel Way to Prevent Stroke
A high quality single-lead ECG can be rapidly and simply recorded using an iPhone with the AliveCor application, to accurately diagnose AF, making this an ideal enabling technology for community screening programs to detect silent AF. Screening programs utilizing this device could have a substantial impact on reducing ischemic stroke related to previously undiagnosed AF.
The AliveCor Heart Monitor measures electrical impulses of the heart (an electrocardiogram [ECG, EKG]), as well as heart rate. The Heart Monitor is a single-channel ECG device.
The Heart Monitor was not designed to replace traditional 12-lead ECG machines. The device allows you an additional portable and convenient heart screening tool that will provide quick, accurate rate and rhythm assessment.
The AliveCor Heart Monitor is intended for use by licensed U.S. medical professionals and prescribed patients to record, display, store, and transfer single-channel electrocardiogram (ECG) rhythms. The device is not currently available for sale to non-prescribed consumers.
The AliveCor Heart Monitor costs $199.00 plus shipping, handling and taxes (when applicable). The AliveECG app is available as a free download from the Apple App Store. Secure online access to your ECGs is also currently free.
