Clinical Trial Details
Research Study Summary
ALERTS (AngeLmed for Early Recognition and Treatment of STEMI) Study
Study evaluating the safety and effectiveness of an implantable cardiac device for patients who have had a heart attack or open heart surgery within the past six months. This device has an alarm which is designed to alert the patient of a potential impending heart attack. Often times a patient has atypical symptoms or initially no symptoms at all, causing the patient to have difficulty deciding whether or not a trip to the emergency room is warranted. The alarm system is set up to remove the delayed decision process, hence a more speedy trip to the emergency room where life saving evaluation and treatment can begin sooner rather than later. Continuous monitoring of heart signals can give both patients and physicians peace of mind in knowing that they will be alerted when they need to seek treatment.
