University of Sydney Researchers build iPhone App that detects heart conditions that lead to stroke

Iphone App detects heart rhythm that could lead to stroke

A team from the University of Sydney has created a special iPhone case and app that can be used to quickly and cheaply detect heart rhythm problems and prevent strokes. The research found the AliveCor Heart Monitor for iPhone (iECG) was a highly effective, accurate and cost-effective way to screen patients to identify previously undiagnosed atrial fibrillation (AF) and hence help prevent strokes and the test is able to be used in local pharmacies and general practitioner surgeries with a single-lead ECG taken on an iPhone with a special case and is being trialed in GP surgeries.

Many of [...]
