Biomedical engineers out of Johns Hopkins and Stony Brook say gentle beams of light -- instead of electric jolts -- could be used to treat arrhythmias in the near future.
The device comes with a cellular-based home monitoring system that allows physicians to detect a range of heart-related events, including silent arrhythmias.
The tech behind a new study may help cardiologists double their success in treating heart arrhythmias by pinpointing the tiny electrical disturbances that cause them.
Researchers at the University of Wisconsin say they've been able to both diagnose as well as treat long QT syndrome in the womb.
High-tech textiles, like self-cleaning jackets and self-charging backpacks, welcome a new member to the ranks: a shirt that measures your heart rate and more.
More wrist-based heart rate monitors are hitting the market, letting you gauge your fitness with a quick read of your pulse. But as Sharon Profis discovered after a visit to the doctor, these optical monitors may need more R&D.
More than half the participants in a study who wore the wireless digital device avoided unnecessary follow-up care, while it may have saved the life of one participant.
A German team unveils an "electronic nose" system that uses metal oxide-based gas sensors to detect heart failure.
Electrical engineers present work confirming that ultrawideband radio technology could vastly improve remote, continuous, real-time health monitoring.
Doctor will try to be the first to remotely fix an irregular heartbeat using a robotic arm and 3D mapping system, six months after conducting a similar remote surgery.
