Authors: Batul SA, Gopinathannair R Abstract Atrial fibrillation (AF) and heart failure (HF) are growing cardiovascular disease epidemics worldwide. There has been an exponential increase in the prevalence of AF and HF correlating with an increased burden of cardiac risk factors and improved survival rates in patients with structural heart disease. AF is associated with adverse prognostic outcomes in HF and is most evident in mild-to-moderate left ventricular (LV) dysfunction where the loss of "atrial kick" translates into poorer quality of life and increased mortality. In the absence of underlying struct...

The new Apple Watch Series 3 gives users more real-time information about their heart than ever, and Apple hopes that it will also be able to alert users to potentially concerning heart beat patterns. The current version of the Apple Watch already tracks heart rate. But the newest version comes with cellular built in, which means it can record heart rate continuously anywhere you have service. That could provide valuable, instantly accessible data for detecting when things might be awry with your heart—if it’s racing too fast when you’re at rest, for example. You can also set the monitor to alert you if y...

In conclusion, documentation is important, a critical part of advocacy and the development process at the larger scale. It isn't just words, but rather a vital structural flow of information from one part of the larger community to another, necessary to sustain progress in any complex field. We would all do well to remember this - and to see that building this documentation is an activity in which we can all pitch in to help.

While privacy concerns, accuracy of data collected, and FDA approval are all concerns in wearable technology, interest in clinical use of the devices has already begun. Some devices in use include: Compact electrocardiogram monitor. According to the American Heart Association, cardiovascular disease and stroke are the two cause of death in American adults. Cardiovascular monitoring is vital to diagnosis and treatment of heart disease, and remote patient monitoring assists with this effort. Wristband to monitor epileptic seizures. A device which can detect seizures in patients who have epilepsy can be used to record the tim...

If the successes in technological development achieved over the past few hundred years is teaching us anything, perhaps it should be that individual members of a species that evolved in an environment of pervasive scarcity and intermittent famine are not well equipped for an environment of consistent plenty. Our biochemistry and our instincts lead us astray: eat too many calories and life expectancy and long-term health will suffer for it. This is not new. We are no different from our ancestors in this aspect of the human condition. The change lies in the fact that we now live in an age so wealthy and capable that consiste...

Personal health analytics company Zansors, in collaboration with researchers at the University of Michigan Medical School, could bring to market the first ever affordable, US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) –approved over-the-counter sleep apnea sensor for in-home use next year. Obstructive sleep apnea increases the risk of heart disease and diabetes, among other conditions, but up to 80% of cases areundiagnosed in the United States.
