  • Publication number: 20190150776
    Abstract: Long-term electrocardiographic and physiological monitoring over a period lasting up to several years in duration can be provided through a continuously-recording subcutaneous insertable cardiac monitor (ICM). The sensing circuitry and the physical layout of the electrodes are specifically optimized to capture electrical signals from the propagation of low amplitude, relatively low frequency content cardiac action potentials, particularly the P-waves that are generated during atrial activation and storing samples of captured signals. In general, the ICM is intended to be implanted centrally and positioned axially and either over the sternum or slightly to either the left or right of the sternal midline in the parasternal region of the chest.

  • Publication number: 20190133444
    Abstract: A computer-implemented system and method for providing a personal mobile device-triggered medical intervention is provided. An activity monitor is associated with a patient and is configured to sense cardiac activity data, including heart rate and heart rhythm. A mobile device is paired with the activity monitor to execute an application for detecting a potentially medically significant cardiac event based on the cardiac activity data. An electrocardiography and physiological sensor monitor is fitted to a sternal region of the patient to sense electrocardiographic signals that the activity monitor is not capable of obtaining. The patient's access to the electrocardiography and physiological sensor monitor is triggered upon detection of the potentially medically significant cardiac event and the electrocardiographic signals are directly uploaded into an electronic medical record for the patient for review by a medical professional.

  • Patent number: 10278606
    Abstract: Physiological monitoring can be provided through a lightweight wearable monitor that includes two components, a flexible extended wear electrode patch and a reusable monitor recorder that removably snaps into a receptacle on the electrode patch. The wearable monitor sits centrally on the patient's chest along the sternum oriented top-to-bottom. The placement of the wearable monitor in a location at the sternal midline, with its unique narrow “hourglass”-like shape, significantly improves the ability of the wearable monitor to cutaneously sense cardiac electrical potential signals, particularly the P-wave and the QRS interval signals indicating ventricular activity in the ECG waveforms. In particular, the ECG electrodes on the electrode patch are tailored to be positioned axially along the midline of the sternum for capturing action potential propagation in an orientation that corresponds to the aVF lead used in a conventional 12-lead ECG that is used to sense positive or upright P-waves.

  • Patent number: 10278603
    Abstract: A system and method for secure physiological data acquisition and storage. An identifier of a physiological monitoring patch is obtained by a programming wand, the patch configured to store the identifier within a cryptographic circuit. A password for accessing physiological monitoring data collected using that patch is generated based on at least a portion of the identifier, the password is encrypted using a secret key, and the encrypted password is loaded into the cryptographic circuit. The key is loaded onto a monitor recorder that couples with the patch and obtains the physiological monitoring data using the patch, wherein the monitor recorder offloads the data together with the identifier and the decoded password. The identifier and the password are reported to a server that stores the offloaded physiological monitoring data using the identifier within a secure database and grants access to the data upon receipt of the decoded password.

  • Publication number: 20190076023
    Abstract: Individuals who suffer from certain kinds of medical conditions, particularly conditions that only sporadically exhibit measurable symptoms, can feel helpless in their attempts to secure access to medical care because, at least in part, they are left to the mercy of their condition to present symptoms at the right time to allow diagnosis and treatment. Providing these individuals with ambulatory extended-wear health monitors that record ECG and physiology, preferably available over-the-counter and without health insurance preauthorization, is a first step towards addressing their needs. In addition, these individuals need a way to gain entry into the health care system once a medically-actionable medical condition has been identified. Here, the ECG and physiology is downloaded and evaluated post-monitoring against medical diagnostic criteria.
