Enable patients to safely and efficiently perform electrocardiogram (ECG) testing at home using PCA 500, the only medical-grade 12-lead resting ECG approved by the FDA for use by patients.
LAS VEGAS, July 29, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Demand for telehealth and home care has skyrocketed during the pandemic. QT Medical Inc. (QT Medical), a The Angels-based company, now offers Xpress ECG service – an online ordering, mail delivery electrocardiogram (ECG) testing service using their PCA 500 platform. The company will showcase PCA 500 alongside their Xpress ECG service at the CES 2022 show.
Through the Xpress ECG service, patients can perform 12-lead resting ECG tests with PCA 500 in the comfort of their own home. Xpress EKG tests can be ordered by doctors or requested by patients. The service offers superior EKG quality, patient convenience and a lower risk of infection, and offers a significantly higher value than in-hospital EKG testing. After the patient has completed the test, QT Medical provides an interpretation of the results by expert cardiologists, sending the reports to the ordering physician or the patient’s physician.
QT Medical is committed to better ECG testing using the revolutionary PCA 500 platform. With the PCA 500, all electrodes are pre-positioned and connected, eliminating the need for operator training and opening the doors for home use with minimal risk of error. The PCA 500 electrode strip is also a single-use, medical-grade product that can be placed within 10 seconds, saving time and reducing the risk of disease transmission compared to traditional EKG testing.
“Xpress EKG has proven to be a much-needed service and 98 percent of patients were able to complete their tests at home with simple instructions,” said Dr. Ruey-Kang ChangChief Executive Officer of QT Medical.
PCA 500 electrodes are available in four adult sizes (18 years and older). With modern, easy-to-use designs, it is the only medical-standard 12-lead resting EKG approved by the FDA for use by patients. With seamless integration of state-of-the-art technologies: a super-compact recorder, patented pre-positioned electrode strips, easy-to-use apps for mobile devices, and HIPAA-compliant cloud, a hospital-grade 12-lead ECG can be completed by anyone, anytime, anywhere.
The features of the Xpress ECG service:
- ECG tests for the home that are easy to use
- PCA 500 with different electrode sizes for patients
- Medical Grade 12-Lead Resting ECG
- Less prone to human error
- FDA Approved, American Heart Association Standards
- HIPAA compliant cloud
Is Xpress EKG the way forward?
12-lead resting EKG is the most commonly used medical test for diagnosing heart conditions, such as arrhythmias and coronary artery disease. However, traditional EKG machines are bulky, inefficient and can only be used by professionals in healthcare facilities.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than 35 million outpatient EKG tests are performed each year in the United States alone. The way 12-lead resting ECG testing is performed hasn’t changed in nearly 80 years, making it obsolete for today’s healthcare environment. In traditional EKG testing, trained technicians perform a complex process involving more than 20 steps in total. As a result, about 3% of EKG tests performed in hospitals lead to misplaced leads. In addition, traditional EKG devices must be cleaned and disinfected after each use, a time-consuming process that increases the risk of disease transmission if performed incorrectly.
In a world where doctors visit patients via video calls, doctors must equip themselves with the necessary tools to deliver personalized healthcare that is fast, accurate, consistent and standardized. dr. Chang “is convinced that Xpress ECG is the solution to cumbersome traditional ECG testing.”
QT Medical will showcase their solution at the TTA Pavilion at Booth 61423 in Sands – Hall G, Eureka Park, Las Vegas Convention Center.
