Instromedix (US) has received US FDA clearance to market its CarryAll pacemaker monitor. The portable unit enables patients to relay information about their implanted devices from home to their healthcare facility. It is compatible with single chamber, dual chamber and rate responsive pacemakers in unipolar and bipolar pacing modes. Oregon-based Instromedix says the CarryAll's algorithms enable better discrimination between pacing and non-pacing pulses as well as improved visualisation of heart electrical activity and pacing ability to stimulate the heart.
