Prof. Vincent Paul, Royal Perth Hospital, Australia; Dr. Anil Mishra, Cardiologist and Clinical Director of B.M Birla Heart Research Centre; Dr. Shuvo Dutta, Director Cardiac Intervention and Suyash Borar, Chief Operating Officer, were present at the launch.
Prof Vincent Paul said Biotronik has set a milestone with its new Home Monitoring System, an advanced, evidence-based remote monitoring technology, with early detection of arrhythmias and other clinically relevant events, delivering simplified yet safe and efficient patient care.
With the help of Cardiac Home Monitoring the physician is able to rapidly and easily review the patient’s clinical information and, if needed, make the appropriate adjustments to medication or device therapy to avoid further deterioration of the patient’s condition, he said.
Dr. Shuvo Dutta talked about the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) friendly pacemaker which comes with the Cardiac Home Monitoring service.
Dr. Anil Mishra while talking about CRT benefits said that it is not inclined to one set of patient but a wide range of patient. He also added that heat attack can be prevented by taking preventive precaution as the device gives timely up-date about the patient’s condition.
The Cardio Messenger patient device transmits all the information via the cellular telephone network (GSM). The device is portable and easy to carry.
The advantage of remote monitoring includes on time monitoring and treatment of patient symptoms and events with reduction in patient hospital stays related to cardiac problem.
It is priced approximately Rs 1 lakh with the pacemaker and can be used for lifetime.
Biotronik Home Monitoring uses an intelligent traffic light system which quickly and easily identifies patients with the clinically most relevant events to streamline clinic workflow and improve patient care.
