Among the most used applications of Telecardiology is the possibility to detect the electrocardiographic trace (ECG) directly from the patient through small portable devices and to transmit it in real time to a Telecardiology Service Center for reporting by qualified personnel. This system is called “ CardioTelephone “
The advantages of the CardioTelephone are:
The CardioTelephone service is based on the recording of short ECG tracks (usually around 30 sec, single channel) through dedicated recorders.
Recently, the CardioTelephone service is generally based on Smartphone technology. With these devices, it is possible to record the ECG trace, display it on the screen of your Smartphone, and send it via email in pdf format to the CardioTelephone service.
The CardioTelephone service can be performed with equipment that is directly rented from our service (currently the WeCardio registration system is used (www.wecardio.it)).
The CardioTelephone service can also be performed with equipment that the patient purchases directly (also through the iWatch system).
A recorded ECG is sent to the reference cardiologist, and the response of the doctor is given in the time and manner established by the contract.
The CardioTelephone service is not covered by the NHS, but is carried out in our center as a private service.
