Monitor and tracking for irregular heartbeat patterns
Irregular heartbeat or “cardiac arrhythmia” occurs when the electrical impulses in the heart don’t work properly. The impulses may happen too fast, resulting in tachycardia, too slow, resulting in bradycardia, or erratically. Some people experience no symptoms of arrhythmia, but some of the more common symptoms may include:
- Fluttering in the chest
- Shortness of breath
- Chest pain
- Rapid heartbeat or pounding
Arrhythmias are very common and, in most cases, are harmless, allowing you to lead a perfectly normal life. However, some can pose a real danger and require medical treatment and long-term management. Therefore, it’s important to schedule annual checkups, especially if you’re experiencing any of the symptoms of an arrhythmia, and then consult a cardiologist for appropriate treatment.
All the data your doctor can handle
Your cardiologist will establish a treatment plan, especially if you’re arrhythmia is significant. The main goals of any treatment plan are to restore a normal heart rhythm, treat any condition that may be the cause of the irregularity, control your heart rate, and prevent/reduce the risk of stroke and other cardiac disease.
Part of the treatment plan will include taking all medications as they are prescribed. Just as important is monitoring your pulse. Being able to record your pulse throughout the day in conjunction with keeping notes about how you’re feeling at each measurement provides important information to your cardiologist with respect to the success of your treatment plan.
The Ivy Health wireless wrist blood pressure monitor allows you and your doctor to stay on top of your cardiac health. With the wireless wrist monitor, you can track your pulse rate over time and provide valuable data to your doctor. The monitor works in tandem with our free Ivy Health app and enables you to track your measurements and store them in the cloud.
Long term tracking
If you have been diagnosed with a cardiac arrhythmia, long-term management of your heart health is going to be required. Being able to see a complete analysis of your blood pressure and pulse rate over weeks and months can provide your doctor with important medical data so that he or she can accurately monitor your progress and catch any possible regression in the progress that you’ve made towards maintaining your condition which may require medication change as well as lifestyle changes. It also allows both you and your doctor to make comparisons between your bp and pulse rate year after year and current health trends.
Our goal at Ivy Health Lab is to provide you with the best smart devices on the market so that you can take an active role in your own health care. When used in combination with our smart health apps, our wrist blood pressure monitor will help you to maintain a healthier lifestyle and meet your treatment goals.
