The safety and effectiveness of the Corcam Heart Monitor is based upon a determination of the substantial equivalence as well as the safety and effectiveness of its predicate device(s).
The Corcam Heart Monitor is a battery operated, non-invasive, portable device intended to continuously monitor a patient’s cardiac condition for early signs of arrhythmia. The device allows for autonomous remote monitoring via a Global System for Mobile Communications/General Packet Radio Service(GSM! GPRS). The device is connected to the patient via four commercially available electrodes (Derivations 1, 11, 111, and ground) and is equipped with an accelerometer to detect patient falls, GPS for geographical and accurate location of the user, and a speaker system to allow communication to or with the Monitoring Center. A vibrating mechanism and lights, when activated, provide physical and visual signals to the user. Indicator lights also show the operating status of the unit. An SOS/ Help button can be pressed by the user to send a help signal to the monitoring center. In addition to the transmission of patient data to the monitoring center, the monitoring center or clinician at any given moment can conditionally request a new exam on demand allowing for actual and accurate tracking of a cardiac event. Once the monitor detects an irregular heartbeat, the device generates an electrocardiogram (ECG) and sends it to the monitoring center. A clinician in the monitoring center carries out an analysis on the received ECG. Depending upon the analysis of the ECG, the clinician can check the symptoms of the patient, request another ECG transmission, or initiate immediate assistance for the patient in the form of an ambulance! emergency services.
