Understanding Your Arrhythmia

An arrhythmia is an abnormally fast, slow or irregular heartbeat. It can sometimes feel like a “fluttering” in the chest or also be silent and have no noticeable symptoms. Many arrhythmias are harmless, but some may be dangerous and require treatment and management.

Arrhythmia Detection

Because abnormal heart rhythms and cardiac symptoms can come and go, they can be difficult to detect. Your doctor may want to evaluate your heartbeat over time with a portable cardiac monitor.

A Better Way
to Diagnose

Unlike alternative cardiac monitors that employ multiple, bulky devices with limited patient support, now there is an integrated monitoring solution that seamlessly connects patients with their clinicians, accelerating the time to treatment.

My RhythmStar®
Life. Uninterrupted.

RhythmStar is a revolutionary
1-piece heart monitor that is discreet and comfortable to wear.

With built-in 4G cellular connectivity, RhythmStar allows your physician to better monitor your heart so you can live life without missing a beat.

RhythmStar saved my life when my heart basically stopped beating and a second-degree heart block was identified. I am deeply grateful for the service provided.
