Smartphone ECG for evaluation of STEMI: results of the ST LEUIS Pilot Study.
In this pilot study, a 12-lead ECG generated from electrodes attached to KardiaMobile was compared to the 12-lead ECG in evaluation of in-hospital cardiac ischemia. Six patients for whom the hospital ST elevation myocardial infarction (STEMI) was activated were evaluated. All tracings were taken prior to catheterization or immediately after revascularization while still in the catheterization laboratory. The 12-lead ECG generated from KardiaMobile had excellent correlation with the gold standard 12-lead ECG in all patients. Four out of six tracings were judged to meet STEMI criteria on both modalities as determined by three experienced cardiologists, and in the remaining two, consensus indicated a non-STEMI ECG diagnosis. This study confirmed the potential of KardiaMobile for evaluation of acute ischemia.J Electrocardiol. 2015;48(2):249-59.
