CardioNet updates mobile cardiac telemetry service
CardioNet has released clinical and reporting enhancements to its existing Mobile Cardiac Outpatient Telemetry (MCOT) service. The updates allow physicians to access more data to diagnose atrial fibrillation, heart pauses and ventricular tachycardia.

The new clinical indicators can monitor patients who are suffering from cardiac events, both symptomatic and asymptomatic, according to the Conshohocken, Pa.-based company. The indicators can be used in combination with SomNet, CardioNet’s program for identifying a sleep disorder indicator. With the MCOT service update, doctors can see the frequency, time and duration of cardiac events within every 24 hours.
