Why Peerbridge CorTM?
Peerbridge CorTM is an FDA cleared electrocardiogram (ECG) device
To properly diagnose suspected arrhythmia, physicians need to draw meaningful conclusions from cardiac events experienced in daily life. Traditionally, wired-Holter and record only monitors have fallen short of meeting the mark. We engineered a better way.
Catching and Diagnosing an Arrhythmia
Do you sometimes experience a skipped beat in your chest? Or feel a racing of the heart? You may sense that your heart is beating too slowly, too quickly, or with an irregular beat.
What’s happening might be so slight that you don’t even feel it or experience any particular symptoms. However, you may have an irregular heartbeat or an arrhythmia.
Fortunately, there are treatments available for arrhythmias. However, before you can begin treatment, the condition must be diagnosed.
A simple, one-time test could be all you need to find out whether or not you have an arrhythmia and what type you have. Your doctor can then use this data to prescribe the most effective form of treatment.
Diagnosis with the Peerbridge Cor
The Peerbridge Cor enables heart data to be provided to your physician in near real time, helping to make sure they capture all critical insights. Up to seven days of uninterrupted data can be collected for greater arrhythmia detection.
The Cor was designed by doctors for the comfort of patients, facilitating high compliance and un-interrupted collection of daily heart data.
Most physicians still use wired Holter monitors for their patient’s ECG needs, but now there is a better option without compromising data quality.
Multi-Lead ECG Systems Produce More Analyzable Data vs. Single Lead ECG Patches
Peerbridge Cor is a multi-lead device. Multiple leads of ECG give physicians a clear understanding as to how a patient’s heart is beating from multiple views.
A clinical study comparing 24-hour Holter monitoring and 14-day adhesive patch electrocardiographic monitoring (The American Journal of Medicine, Volume 127, No 1, January 2014), provided evidence of the superior data generated by multiple lead heart monitors compared to single lead devices:
“In general, the information provided by the Holter monitor’s additional 2 ECG leads are an obvious advantage for both automatic algorithm analysis and physician interpretation.
Speciﬁcally, 3-lead recordings allow for the detection of arrhythmia events characterized by a shift in electrical axis that can be missed by single-lead recordings.”
The Clinical Significance of Wireless Monitoring, by Dr. Acquista
“Wires limit the ability to move and be active. When patients are changing their clothes, or using the shower or bathroom, it is usually necessary to remove the wires, meaning there are gaps in the data being collected.
Wires also affect a patient’s sense of freedom – their emotional as well as physical well-being. Wires create a sense of not feeling well because they’re constraining.
A wireless system, in contrast, makes it easier for individuals to get up and move, helps maintain independence and normality, and promotes a greater sense of well-being.”
