Cardiovascular diseases claim more than 17 million lives worldwide, more than any other disease and more than all cancers combined. CDC data reports that heart disease claims 600,000 Americans on a yearly basis. Heart disease affects 1 out of 4 males and 1 out of 3 females and there are 750,000 strokes a year in the US, of which 175,000 reoccur.” “The size of the population affected is staggering. biotricity’s next-generation monitor detects life threatening arrhythmias and arrhythmias that might lead to stroke, such as atrial fibrillation, in real-time. Falls due to bradycardia events and other arrhythmias can lead to disability and death, especially in the elderly, making response and patient location critical. With built in location capability, biotricity’s monitor can potentially reduce response times and improve outcomes.”
