Implantable loop recorders are diagnostic tools capable of providing 24/7 continuous ECG monitoring for your patients.
Loop recorders store large quantities of ECG episodes. Detailed and timely analysis of each ECG recording is necessary to distinguish common harmless artifacts from rare important ECG abnormalities.
To optimize the outcome of the ECG analysis, loop recorders have a "telemonitoring function". This enables daily transmission of all new ECG episodes as well as other health data to a server station for manual review.
Your clinical care.
Various medical reasons may lead to continuous ECG monitoring with an implantable loop recorder.
Classic indications concern rhythm-symptom correlation in patients with unclear cardiac arrhythmias, dizziness and syncope, as well as the differential diagnostic work-up in patients with cryptogenic stroke. For all these scenarios, the clinical value of an implantable loop recorder has been scientifically proven.
Increasingly, the technology is also used for intensified management of atrial fibrillation, for follow-up after catheter ablation, and for risk stratification of sudden cardiac death.
Our logistical service.
The main challenge for the professional use of implantable loop recorders concerns the enormous amount of recorded ECG episodes. This is further complicated by the variety of transmission networks, server structures, transmission protocols and user interfaces of the different device manufacturers and their inherent connectivity issues. Timely data processing is also important.
With a lot of experience, we can solve these challenges for you. Our service is vendor independent. Every working day, our specialized team looks at all transmissions sent from your patients' implantable loop recorders. These analyses are performed on the manufacturer's server platform or after transmission into our monitor center.
Only abnormal episodes - which we initially coordinate with you - are processed and forwarded to you as the attending physician. This way we reduce your workload but enable you for timely and precise clinical decisions.
In case of missing or unsuccessful transmissions, our team will contact your patients to clarify root causes and, if necessary, repeat data transmission. According to your preference, the general health status of your patients can also be collected in a structured interview.
