Reliable AF detection using a wrist-worn device
A new scientific publication concludes that the PulseOn device can be reliably used for atrial fibrillation (AF) detection in an outpatient setting. Clinical performance is evaluated using the PulseOn Arrhythmia Monitor System that consists of a data management service and a wrist-worn device that combines both PPG and ECG measurements.
The data management service integrates the Cardiolund ECG Parser software for automated ECG analysis, interval measurements, beat classification and rhythm analysis for online reporting.
Evaluation of the Arrhythmia Monitor System concludes that the ECG AF detection sensitivity and specificity were 97.7 and 89.8%, respectively. The usability of the system was found to be good by both the study subjects and the participating cardiologists.
