First of all I could not figure out, that this my post will fit to the forum policy? If not, then I ask the admin to delete it.
Shortly my case: I have flutter and I'm the medical adviser of a very small company. The company develops a personal ECG. I never had any clinical symptom and the flutter was found by chance when I tested the device. Of course I vent to my cardiologist friend so I'm under control.
But not my case is important, rather the lessons what I learned.
We developed the device according to the stroke guideline that suggested a cheap comfortable one channel ECG for screening of aFib in risk groups. Basically that device is similar to an implantable loop recorder, but cheap and not requires surgery.
That's great but finally came up that now I became an expert of my case (flutter of veteran athlet), but my case is not so typical (the flutters represents only about 10% of all fibrillation cases and vagally mediated flutters are even more rare). So what I need lot of interaction with aFib patients and expert colleagues what they really need to help the patients.
Therefore everybody (patients and colleagues) is welcomed here for discussion on the topic whether a specific fibrillation problem needs a personal ECG or not?
