AliveCor product update - Know instantly when an ECG is normal

“Normal.” The word is particularly meaningful for anyone suffering from a heart arrhythmia, such as atrial fibrillation (AF).


Today, AliveCor announces the Normal Detector, which gives all users of the AliveCor Heart Monitor the ability to know immediately if their ECG is normal. The Normal Detector runs automatically each time a recording is taken and communicates right away when an ECG is normal. The Normal Detector offers peace of mind to patients, who, before now, had not been given the tools to know immediately, in the moment, when their ECG is normal.


In an effort to continue to offer the easiest recording process possible, today AliveCor is also rolling out the Interference Detector: a simple way to confirm that a recording is high quality enough for both the AliveECG app— and a doctor— to interpret. If an ECG is unreadable for any reason, the Interference Detector will immediately alert the user and give tips about how to take a better ECG next time.

Now, when providers review patients’ data, ECGs will be tagged with AF, Normal, or Unreadable. Having more information at-a-glance about patients’ ECGs will help providers focus on the patient data that is most important to decision-making and follow-up.

Don’t miss out on these new features, available free for a limited time.
