Abstract

Cardiac monitors collect and transmit information about heart rate and rhythm. Physiologic sensors in implantable devices allow clinicians to remotely monitor heart failure status. Wireless networks will evolve to transmit data more effectively. Improved algorithms may improve arrhythmia recognition by diagnostic monitors. Applications for smartphones can offer novel and cost-effective means to medically monitor patients. The evolution of physiologic sensors may advance cardiac monitoring beyond heart rate and rhythm alone. Sensors may assist in several areas. The usefulness of these innovations will require validation clinically as well as consideration of cost and who will manage the data.
