State-of-art ECG system which provides physicians with a revolutionary method for earlier non-invasive diagnosis of heart pathologies. It is based on the analysis of the heart electric excitation processes and 3D visualization.
- Quantitative estimation of the heart state.
- Acquisition only standard EKG leads from hands and legs in sitting position.
- Total checkup duration is less than one minute.
- Patients database and dynamic comparison of the results.
- Provides better sensitivity and specificity for heart diagnosis. Depending on the pathology, this
- instrument sensitivity surpasses standard EKG analyzers by 7-50 times. Enables earlier detectionof heart abnormalities.
- Utilizes new information from EKG fluctuations usually ignored as 'a noise' by regular EKG devices.
- Evaluates the stability of the current heart state. This is extremely important since heart with major deviations can be steady (such patients often live long lives) and, on the contrary, heart with small deviations can be extremely unstable and fall in dangerously unexpected relapse.
- Detects small metabolic deviations preceding the dangerous ischemic damages of myocardium.
- Requires much less professional skills and training for better and faster results than regular EKG diagnosis, which is “state-of- the art” for general practitioner.
Plaque deposits on the interior linings of the heart’s arteries lie at the root of angina pectoris. The narrowed arteries prevent the heart from getting enough oxygen during exercise and the person experiences a chest pain beneath the breast bone—this pain is called angina pectoris. Mild or intense, the discomfort usually lasts only a few minutes. Every year, an estimated many new cases of angina occur. Today, angina pectoris can be dramatically reduced or eliminated by medications, heart surgery, or balloon dilation of narrowed arteries.
Example of display of ischemic changes on a portrait of heart at a normal electrocardiogram a) - a specific attribute of an ischemia of a myocardium.
Acute myocardial infarction (heart attack) is a common complication of ischemic heart disease. Over time, the arteries of the heart narrow from a build up of fatty deposits (cholesterol plaques) on their interior linings and then can suddenly develop a blood clot on top of a fatty deposit. The clot lessens the flow of blood and oxygen to the heart muscle, and a portion of the muscle will die if the flow is not restored quickly. When some of the heart muscle dies, it is replaced by fibrosis, producing a scar. The heart’s ability to pump blood to the rest of the body is often impaired.
Ischemic heart disease may also lead to "sudden" cardiac death—the cause of death for a lot of adults each year.
Although many call it a "massive heart attack," sudden cardiac death in patients with ischemic heart disease is usually caused by an abnormal heart rhythm called ventricular fibrillation, which prevents the heart from contracting and thus stops all blood flow to the brain and other vital organs. The patient will die unless he or she receives cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and electric shock with an external defibrillator to restart the heart and resume blood flow, quickly.
