Went for a routine ECG yesterday and was asked if I would join a trial on a new machine. The study is termed 'Six Lead detection of Atrial Fibrillation - SL - AF Study' The machine is called CardiocityRhythmPadGP and is a smallish box/monitor and three leads. You are connected up with three leads with simple Velcro bands - one to each upper arm and one to an ankle. A lot simpler and easier - and less undressing than the 12 lead ECG one normally has and no sticky pads to peel off!
All quite interesting. I wonder if they might be available to GPs eventually? Has anyone else come across this yet?
