Smartphone ECG for evaluation of ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI): Design of the ST LEUIS International Multicenter Study.
This multicenter, international prospective study aims to validate an investigational KardiaMobile attachment that provides all 12 leads of a standard ECG system, and its ability to accurately assess the presence or absence of ST-elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) in patients presenting with chest pain. The aim is to support the diagnostic utility of smartphone technology which can improve the availability of a 12-lead ECG in the diagnosis of STEMI. The study will take place over 12 months at five institutions. Approximately 60 patients will be enrolled per institution, for a total recruitment of 300 patients.J Electrocardiol.
