The Corsens Cardiac Monitor is designed to detect cardiac contractility parameters via a series of acoustic, accelerometers and cardiac rhythm non-invasive sensors arrayed on the patient's chest.
In previous studies, conducted at the Ziv Medical Center, Safed, Israel4, the Corsens Cardiac Monitor demonstrated stable, reproducible, and consistent cardiac contractility changes in patients undergoing heart catheterization procedures.
A total of 16 new cardiac monitors and a four-person telemetry unit, to monitor heart reactions when walking or active, were installed in the emergency, special care, and ambulatory care units.
