Remote diagnostic technologies allow you to monitor your heart rhythm from home

Zio is an innovative patch to monitor your heart rhythm, helping your doctor to diagnose any arrhythmias. It is small, discreet, and is worn on your chest with no wires or bulky devices.  Zio can monitor your heart rhythm for up to 14 days, and you can go about normal daily activities even exercising and showering, all while Zio continuously monitors your heart.  Once requested by your doctor, Zio can even be sent directly to your home so that you do not need to visit hospital.

 National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) has just recommended it as an NHS option for people with suspected cardiac arrhythmias who would benefit from ECG monitoring for longer than 24 hours.

The Zio patch is convenient and easy to wear and gives doctors more information to help with an arrhythmia diagnosis, compared with standard 24‑hour Holter monitoring.

If you have worn one, or would be interested in doing so, please contact us by calling 01789 867501 or emailing info@heartrhythmalliance.org
