Patients cannot determine if they are having a heart attack

Every 40 seconds, someone in the US has a heart attack or myocardial infarction (MI)1.

Heart attack symptoms are often vague, making it difficult for patients to tell if the symptoms they are experiencing are due to an MI. Patients often ignore symptoms and delay seeking care, which leads to worse outcomes or increased risk of death. For those that do visit the ER with vague symptoms of chest pain, fewer than 20% of chest pain-related visits turn out to be a heart attack.2,3

Ignore Symptoms

  • 3 hours average delay before patients seek care4
  • Greater incidence of heart failure
  • 40% increase in mortality rates for delaying care 3-4 hours after symptoms begin4

Go to ER

  • Chest pain is #2 most common reason for an ER visit
  • $10B + cost to the healthcare system each year5,6
  • 82% of chest pain ER visits are unnecessary2,3

12-lead ECG provides a comprehensive assessment of the heart's electrical activity and is the gold standard for heart attack detection and beyond, but today's options are lacking.

Traditional 12-lead ECGs require a health care professional for application and are not practical for at-home use
Single-lead ECG
Multiple at-home monitoring options available but do not offer 12-lead ECG and are limited in the heart conditions they can detect

The HeartBeam Solution

HeartBeam is developing a personal, portable, easy-to-use cardiac monitor. Unlike other at-home heart monitors, HeartBeam provides medical grade 12-lead ECG and can detect arrhythmias and other heart conditions*. Here's how it works:

Smartphone app guides patient

The AIMIGo app offers a simple user interface to guide the patient through the 3D VECG signal recording process.

Patient captures recording

The patient places the small device on their chest for a 30-second signal recording.

Recording sent to HeartBeam cloud

3D VECG signals are sent to the cloud, analyzed and converted into a 12-lead ECG and sent to the physician.

On-call physician reviews ECG and follows up with patient

The on-call physician, available 24/7, reviews the 12-lead ECG and follows up with the patient to triage or recommend next steps.
