CE Mark for new AF-detection ECG app

A new app which provides patients with real-time AF detection in electrocardiogram (ECG) recordings (AliveECG, AliveCor®) has recently received CE Mark clearance.

The new AF detector app analyses each ECG recorded and automatically notifies the user if AF is detected in that ECG. Currently free to customers, it includes features that help patients and physicians to manage existing conditions, track medications, lifestyle choices and ongoing symptoms.

“The new AF Detector, along with the tracking of medications and lifestyle factors will make it easier for me to identify and manage serious heart arrhythmias in my patients,” said Dr Richard Bogle (St. Helier Hospital, Surrey). “My patients will significantly benefit from being able to find out if they are having an AF episode and together it will allow us to determine which medications, habits and activities may be impacting their heart. With a more complete view of what is happening with my patients, even between appointments, we can make better decisions,” Dr Bogle added.
