Cardiologists have recently presented a unique device that can predict the onset of a heart attack, emitting special signals or switching to vibrate mode.
Many patients who have had a heart attack, do not experience the initial symptoms of this disease, which manifest themselves in the form of severe pain in the chest or excessive sweating. People tend to feel a little more than mild discomfort, actually carrying serious heart attacks, which in the absence of medical care may result in death.
There is another group of people who consciously ignore the symptoms of a heart attack or recognize them very late. The later a person begins to respond to early signs of a heart attack, the doctors have less chance of helping the patient to save his life. The creators of the device AngelMed Guardian System hope that their invention will reduce greatly deaths from heart attack, warning in advance of their owners about a possible approximation of the deadly disease.
Device allows the average infarct patient to be hospitalized for about two hours early, and it not only minimizes the probability of death, but also ensures the preservation of the heart muscle in the best condition. The device operation is based on capturing the electrical signals that come from the heart. These signals come at a time when the major arteries of the heart reside in danger of clogging process.
"Our device will allow you to more quickly identify the occurrence of heart attack compared with other known methods of diagnosis," - said Robert Vlodarchuk, the developer unit of the California Hospital Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare. "We give the patient precious moments he needed to ask for urgent help to the doctor. Every lost 30 minutes at a heart attack without treatment increase the risk of death by 7.5%. Our device can save 25-30% more lives."
