Between 15 and 17 million patients with cardiovascular diseases are registered in our country every year. The diseases of circulatory system account for more than half of all deaths, 43.3% of disability, and 9.0% of temporary disability. This determines the importance of early diagnosis, rational therapy, prevention of serious complications and patients’ rehabilitation.
ECG monitoring refers to the informative and most common methods of heart disease examination, which can help to solve all these issues. Professional analysis of the patient's electrocardiogram data provides information to assess the heart functional condition, diagnosis of diseases and syndromes requiing urgent cardiac care, especially myocardial infarction, paroxysmal tachycardia, conduction disorders (various types of blockades).
With the technology development, ECG devices are becoming more mobile, allowing patient or doctor to identify acute heart pathologies and promptly take the necessary measures. Modern ECG recorders have the modern telemedicine equipment characteristics: being lightweight and invisible these devices have a function of continuous ECG registration which allows you to automatically diagnose arrhythmias and provide wireless data transmission in real time, improving diagnostic significance and increasing efficiency with ease of use. Information about the heart rhythm, obtained with a portable ECG recorder, helps to personalize the treatment. Comfortable for the patient, long-term outpatient ECG monitoring is widely used in various clinical situations to detect cardiac arrhythmias and/or determine the nature of arrhythmias, when it cannot be done with a standard ECG.
«Doctor Spyder» system contains of:
Portable Spyder ECG, continuously transmitting data in real-time;
- Spyder mobile application installed on the patient's smartphone device to transfer information from Spyder ECG to the doctor's personal online office;
- Analytical software that automatically processes the patient's ECG data.
The use of "Doctor Spider" system is relevant in the following cases:
screening testing conducting
detection of standard and difficult to diagnose arrhythmias
monitoring the effectiveness of therapy for people suffering from cardiovascular diseases (CHD, arrhythmia, hypertension, etc.)
monitoring of patients with cancer and other diseases associated with a high risk of complications from cardiovascular diseases
people with pacemakers installed
to check the level of physical fitness and ability to adapt in athletes
children and people who are overweight
The system allows doctor to analyze the patient's data and evaluate the therapy effectiveness and safety in real time, without the need for hospitalization.
The results of the "Doctor Spyder" system application in 2013-2018 demonstrated the high diagnostic significance and effectiveness of long-term continuous monitoring, which was expressed in reducing the number of hospitalizations, reducing the rates of early mortality and disability of the able-bodied population, reducing the cost of patient management and hospital stay.
The introduction of "Doctor Spyder" in medical practice will reduce mortality rates from the cardiovascular diseases as well as improve the quality of diagnosis of a number of other diseases.
