Instromedix (US) has launched the HeartCard cardiac event recorder to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac patients. When symptoms begin, the patient can place the credit card-sized device against the chest to record ECG information. The stored ECG can then be transmitted over the telephone to a physician's office or hospital cardiology unit for interpretation. An estimated 2 million US citizens suffer some form of tachycardia, dizziness or fainting.
