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.
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.
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.
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.
