A Study to Determine the Feasibility of Wireless Electrocardiography

This study has been completed.

Peerbridge Health, Inc Identifier:

Last verified: September 2016

The investigators are conducting a prospective, observational study to examine the ECG waveforms captured by the new medical device as compared to a traditional Holter monitor for subsequent use in visual diagnoses of atrial and ventricular arrhythmias as well as cardiac impulse and/or conduction disorders by qualified clinicians.

The hypothesis is that this new medical device prototype is non-inferior to traditional Holter monitoring for capturing ECG waveforms that can be visually assessed for atrial and ventricular arrhythmias as well as disorders of cardiac impulse formation and/or conduction.

Condition Intervention

Device: Observational ambulatory ECG monitoring

Study Type: Observational
Study Design: Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Study to Determine the Feasibility of Wireless Electrocardiography
