New Stress Product from Cardiac Science Connects to Echo, Nuclear Systems

 

November 5, 2008

November 5, 2008 - Cardiac Science Corp. today launched the fourth generation of its Burdick HeartStride exercise stress systems.

This new version adds echo and nuclear systems connectivity to the existing connectivity with EMR/other systems. HeartStride 4.0 enhances workflow. With a single log-in to the EMR, a clinician can download information and orders directly to HeartStride and upload results directly to a patient’s record, the company said.

The system has eight standard, preprogrammed protocols, a pharmacological protocol, options for manual control, and a full range of in-test and final report configurations for tailored documentation.

The company said the system is easy to use, featuring an intuitive interface and a mouse click changes testing protocols. The proprietary Logistep features move the user through testing protocols with ease. The large screen displays all heartbeats all the times, even during changes to protocol.

The manufacturer also said automated impedance checks ensure the best possible trace quality, minimizing the need for repeat tests.

HeartStride’s functionality is complemented by Cardiac Science’s TM55 and TM65 treadmills. Powered by Ultradrive, a digitally controlled AC-drive system, the treadmills are said to be smooth, quiet, and capable of carrying a 500-pound patient.
