How the CardioInsight Electro-anatomical Mapping System Works

The FDA approved the Medtronic CardioInsight electro-anatomical mapping system in early 2017. It uses an ECG lead vest to noninvasively create a 3-D electrophysiology (EP) electro-map of the heart to help identify arrhythmia and plan catheter ablation procedures. Read the related article on the technology.

Trends at HIMSS 2014

A big trend in healthcare IT at HIMSS 2014 was the creation of enterprise-wide image access systems. With the introduction of vendor neutral archives (VNAs), enterprise imaging will increasingly be taken out of the hands of radiology and move to the responsibility of hospital IT directors. In this form, radiology may become just another department contributing images to the VNA. HIMSS also highlighted the proliferation of new, inexpensive home use patient monitors.

Witness the Evolution of Cardiac Stress BP Measurement

SunTech demonstrated its new Tango M2 cardiac stress test automated blood pressure monitoring system at the American College of Cardiology (ACC) 2013. The system eliminates the need to manually take blood pressure readings during a stress test, which can sometimes be difficult because of patient motion. It also allows clinicians to focus on the patient and the test instead of worrying about periodic blood pressure measurements. For more information, visit www.SunTechMed.com/TM2Info

ACC Video: Support Programs Aid Women With Heart Disease

WomenHeart is the only national organization dedicated to promoting women's heart health through advocacy, education and patient support. As the leading voice for the 42 million American women living with or at risk of heart disease, WomenHeart advocates for equal access to quality care and provides information and resources to help women take charge of their heart health. Lise Tate, CAE, CEO of WomenHeart, the National Coalition for Women With Heart Disease, said the non-profit group helps set up hospital support groups to guide women through their treatment and recovery. Since its inception, WomenHeart — founded by three women heart attack survivors who transformed the isolation, confusion and ignorance about women's heart disease into a rallying call to save women's lives — has been at the forefront of providing support services to women with heart disease and educating policymakers, health professionals and the public about the urgent need to make women's heart health a priority.

Founded in 1999, WomenHeart's mission is to improve the health and quality of life of women living with or at risk of heart disease. Through our programs and services, WomenHeart raises awareness about the importance of prevention and early detection, accurate diagnosis and proper treatment of women's heart disease. WomenHeart is a coalition and a community of thousands of members nationwide, including women heart patients and their families, physicians, health advocates and consumers committed to helping women live longer, healthier lives. At the center of the organization are the more than 500 WomenHeart Champions, all heart disease survivors, who have graduated from WomenHeart's Science and Leadership Symposium at the Mayo Clinic. These alumnae serve as WomenHeart local support group leaders, community educators, media spokeswomen, and general support volunteers. Through leadership and advocacy training, information resources and an online community, WomenHeart empowers women living with heart disease to manage their own heart health and to help all women take charge of their heart health.
