Aum Cardiovascular wins FDA clearance for Cadence heart device
Aum Cardiovascular said today that it won 510(k) clearance from the FDA for its Cadence device, which is designed to detect heart murmurs. Cadence works by applying an algorithm to the acoustic signature of heart murmurs in the primary care setting, allowing physicians to diagnose the condition without resorting to expensive CT, MRI or ultrasound scans. “A primary care doctor is unlikely to refer patients to pricey specialty clinics, especially if the patient doesn’t show any outward signs of the disease,” founder & CEO Marie Johnson said in prepared remarks. “Cadence offers clinicians a low-cos...
