Prevent the risk of cardio disease and stroke by early detection of atrial fibrillation, premature contraction, tachycardia and bradycardia. Cardiac disorders need medical attention and thus early diagnosis is of paramount importance. The PARR technology detects arrythmia during regular blood pressure checks without any additional user skills, user interaction and measurement prolongation.
Atrial Fibrillation Detection (AFib)
The upper chambers of the heart (the atria) beat irregular (quiver) and mostly fast instead of beatingeffectively to move blood into the ventricles. This condition is associated with a higher risk for cardiac blood clots, stroke, heart failure and other heart-related complications. About 10 % - 20 % of patients who suffer from an ischemic stroke also suffer from atrial fibrillation.
Premature Contraction Detection (PC)
Extra, abnormal heartbeats generated in abnormal locations of your heart, either in the atria (PAC) or in the ventricles (PVC) or the cardiac conduction nodes (PNC). These extra beats disrupt your regular heart rhythm, sometimes causing palpitations (e.g. skipped beats) in your chest. It may occur singularly or repetitively with various incidence. If not stress-related, they are a sensitive marker for a multitude of cardiac disorders, elevated ischemic stroke risk with PC.
Tachycardia Detection (TACH)
Fast heart rate of more than 100 beats per minute (BPM) in adults. Unless being caused by physical or mental stress, indicator for cardiac and extra-cardiac disorders (e.g. coronary heart disease, hyperthyroidism, fever).
Bradycardia Detection (BRAD)
Slow heart rate, heart rate of less than 55 beats per minute in adults. Unless caused by endurance training heart adaption, bradycardia may be related to a multitude of cardiac and extra cardiac disorders (e.g. electrolyte imbalance, medication, coronary and / or valvular heart disease).
