AliveCor KardiaMobile Personal EKG Device and Heart Monitor - Single-Lead EKG Recorder
The AliveCor KardiaMobile Personal EKG Device is a single-lead ECG recorder that lets you take your cardiac history wherever you go. The device can record ECGs at any location, even when you're in a car. Its compact size makes it easy to take it anywhere. One of the biggest questions many people have is whether or not this product will cost them more than they're willing to spend.
Detects atrial fibrillation
The single-lead design of the KardiaMobile is convenient and easy to use. It measures your heart's electrical activity with electrodes placed on your fingers. Each measurement takes approximately 30 seconds, and you can save the results to share with your doctor. It's compatible with most smart phones and tablets, including the iPhone 5 and newer models. Users have praised the device's ease of use, comfort, and durability.
Although AFib is the most common abnormal heart rhythm, there are other types of irregular heartbeats. The Kardia device detects and reports these if it detects any abnormal rhythm. A heart that is beating too fast is a sign of atrial flutter. While the heart rate may be irregular, it's not as rapid as AFib.
Measures heart rate
The KardiaMobile Personal EKG Device & Heart Monitor measures your heart rate, allowing doctors to detect early warning signs of cardiac arrhythmias. This device is three inches long and easily attaches to your smart phone. Simply place your finger on the sensor pads and hold steady for 30 seconds. The device then transmits results to the Kardia App on your smart phone.
The KardiaMobile Personal EKG Device & Health Monitor measures your heart rate. The device also has an app and is free. This app allows you to track your heart rate and ECG with ease. The device is easy to use and can be downloaded from the AliveCor website. The app can also send your results to your doctor. However, you should always consult your doctor if you suspect that you may be experiencing any irregular heart rhythms.
Measures atrial flutter
While not a cure, KardiaMobile Personal EKG Device can identify atrial flutter, which is very similar to AFib. The heart rate can be fast and irregular, but it's not as irregular as AFib. When used properly, the device is highly accurate at detecting atrial flutter. Despite these limitations, the KardiaMobile is a handy companion to other heart health management strategies. The device can be used at home and is compatible with several smartwatches on the market.
The device uses 6 leads for accurate ECG readings. It is CE-marked and FDA-cleared to detect irregular heart rhythms. The six-lead technology helps detect atrial flutter early. The app allows users to easily view and analyze the results of their heart rhythms. Unlike a traditional EKG, the KardiaMobile 6L allows patients to compare readings to those of a professional physician.
Is not covered by insurance
While it may be tempting to rely on insurance to cover the costs of a new medical device, the KardiaMobile Personal EKG Device does not replace EKGs in a doctor's office. While this device can provide a quick and convenient means to monitor heart rhythms, it is not a substitute for EKGs performed in a doctor's office. Although the device is not covered by insurance, it can be purchased through health-savings accounts or Flexible Spending Accounts.
This pocket-sized personal EKG device records data and emails the results to a doctor. Because it can be used on any device, it is compatible with the majority of smartphones and tablets. The device is compatible with most smart devices including iPhone 5 and later models, most Android devices, and iPads. Users of the KardiaMobile have praised it as easy to use, comfortable, and durable.
