Impulse Dynamics receives FDA approval for the First Ever Optimizer Smart System for Delivering...

Pacemakers are designed to monitor and record the rate and rhythm of the heart and make sure the heart rate doesn’t get too slow. An ICD acts as a pacemaker, but it can also detect dangerously fast heart rates, called ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation, and stop them. However, these devices don’t do anything to […]

Wearable Detects Atrial Fibrillation

Wearable Tech Can Safely Detect Atrial Fibrillation, Says Apple Heart Study

Atrial Fibrillation (AFib) is an abnormal heart rhythm characterized by rapid and irregular beating of the atria – the heart’s two upper chambers. The condition can increase your risk of stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications. Each year in the United States, AFib results in 130,000 deaths and 750,000 hospitalizations, according to the Centers […]
