March 9, 2015 — AliveCor Inc. announced the launch of the latest version of the AliveECG app, which instantly detects when an electrocardiogram (ECG) is either normal or unreadable. The app features two new U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared and CE-marked automated detectors: The Normal Detector allows patients to go about their regular daily activities knowing that no abnormalities were detected in their ECG. The Interference Detector goes a step beyond the existing enhanced filter to make sure the ECG is readable and physicians receive only the highest quality recordings.

Now anytime an ECG is taken with the AliveCor Heart Monitor, the AliveECG app will tell users if atrial fibrillation (AF) is present; if the ECG is normal; or if there is too much interference and another ECG should be taken. These features allow for the delivery of more efficient clinical decision-making and follow-up. All three detectors are available on iOS and Android in the United States, United Kingdom, Ireland and India, and are free for a limited time.

"With the addition of these two new Detectors, I now have an easy, clinically proven way to check my heart rhythm every day and see right away what's happening," said Paul Clarke, AliveCor user since August of 2014. "I feel extremely confident using my AliveCor Heart Monitor as I can go about my normal routine as well as after strenuous exercise without having to be worried that something is wrong with my heart, this feeling is priceless!"

The AliveCor Heart Monitor is intended to record, store and transfer single-channel ECG rhythms. It also displays ECG rhythms and detects the presence of atrial fibrillation and normal sinus rhythm (when prescribed or used under the care of a physician). The device is intended for use by healthcare professionals, patients with known or suspected heart conditions and health-conscious individuals. It has not been tested for and is not intended for pediatric use. The AliveCor Heart Monitor is compatible with all iOS and most Android OS mobile devices. With secure storage in the cloud, users have the ability to access their data confidentially anytime, anywhere.
