An electrocardiogram records the electrical signals in your heart. It’s a common and painless test used to quickly detect heart problems and monitor your heart’s health.
Electrocardiograms — also called ECGs or EKGs — are often done in a doctor’s office, a clinic or a hospital room. ECG machines are standard equipment in operating rooms and ambulances. Some personal devices, such as smart watches, and other monitoring devices offer ECG monitoring.
AliveCore’s KardiaMobile 6L is an innovative device which gives patients the ability to record a medical-grade ECG in just 30 seconds, with no hospital visits and complete peace of mind.
This is an upgraded version of AliveCor, now gives you 6-lead ECG report that gives your doctor more detailed heart information. A true EKG done in a doctor’s office has 12 leads, and most of the smart watches and monitoring devices we use gives you ONE of the 12 leads of a normal EKG. . For most purposes — one lead is all you need for determining things like irregular heart rhythms (usually “atrial fibrillation”). But for anything else – you need more leads. So with this new AliveCore’s KardiaMobile 6L device you can get 6 out of 12 leads, this is simply fantastic. Now a doctor can see this and determine not only heart rhythm, but axis, conduction abnormalities, and even ischemic changes ie. early signs of a heart attack.
