body guardian heart

The BodyGuardian® Remote Monitoring System helps physicians see into their patients’ experience — the what and when — which helps them refine their care.      

BodyGuardian® Heart is a discreet, pocket-sized wearable monitor that accommodates patient mobility, enhances compliance and streamlines data collection. The state-of-the-art, dual-component monitor offers full convertibility between mobile cardiac telemetry (MCT) and cardiac event monitoring (CEM)

Clinical Applications

The BodyGuardian® Heart Remote Monitoring System wirelessly provides:

  • Rhythm monitoring: Ambulatory ECG and average heart rate for arrhythmias, including Atrial Fibrillation, Tachycardia, Bradycardia, Pause, and others
  • Recordings and transmission of periodic ECG at specified intervals

The patient's data is automatically detected and wirelessly delivered to Preventice Monitoring Center. Physicians can access their patients’ data and review notifications securely anytime, anywhere via the web through the PatientView and PatientFlow portals. Additionally, they can set thresholds for each patient allowing for individualized monitoring and care plan support.

Functionality

The single channel device can monitor one of the several views, based on placement position, at physician direction. This single component device has built-in symptom and activity capture with beat-to-beat recordings stored for up to 30 days. The biometric data is delivered securely from the BodyGuardian® Heart monitor to the BodyGuardian® Connect smartphone. No patient data is stored on the phone.

Reports for BodyGuardian® Heart

The advanced diagnostic clinical based algorithm captures asymptomatic events in near real-time, in addition to patient-activated events, and communicates the information wirelessly. The arrhythmia detection settings are customizable and remotely programmable. The reports can be integrated with the medical practice EMR system or reviewed on the PatientFlow, or PatientView portal, based on the physicians’ needs.

  • Cardiac Event Report: Summarizes any critical, serious or stable events.
  • Daily Summary Report: Includes key attributes of the mobile cardiac telemetry study with the maximum and minimum heart rate for the day. 
  • End of Service Report: Provides a view of the entire study period, including burden percentage by arrhythmia. The burden data is only available to MCT patients.
