Monitor your Heart on the Go

REKA_E100The National University Heart Centre Singapore (NUHCS) now offers a new ambulatory ECG event monitoring service that ensures healthcare professionals receive accurate data. This is available across the National University Hospital (NUH).

Patients take the device home with them typically for two weeks and are encouraged to carry it with them all day. They record their heart rhythm as many times as necessary during the two-week period, including when they are at rest, exercising and especially when they feel symptoms such as chest pain, heart palpitations or shortness of breath.

Patients simply place both thumbs on the two metal contacts for 30 seconds. This automatically records their ECG data within the device. Data is later downloaded onto a secured NUH server, when the patient returns to the hospital. No manual entry is required, reducing risk of data entry errors. It is simple, quick and fuss-free for both patients and healthcare professionals to use. The cost for this service is approximately $90 – $240 for a two-week period, claimable under Medisave for Chronic Disease Management Programme (CDMP).

In order to implement this monitoring service, NUHCS is leveraging upon REKA Health’s cardiac rhythm monitor. This is a light, portable ECG device that allows patients to practice convenient self-care and home monitoring anytime, anywhere.
