Cardiac services experts launch eCardio Diagnostics for advanced cardiac arrhythmia monitoring

The Woodlands 18 January 2005An experienced team of cardiac services experts has launched eCardio Diagnostics LLC, which provides advanced technology cardiac arrhythmia monitoring. Based in The Woodlands, Texas, eCardio Diagnostics provides comprehensive cardiac services, including cardiac event monitoring, digital holter monitoring and pacemaker follow-up. Through strategic alliances with arrhythmia and telemedicine device manufacturers, eCardio Diagnostics offers cardiologists, electrophysiologists and other medical professionals state-of-the-art monitoring equipment designed to assist caregivers in diagnosing cardiac arrhythmias. Typically, the only alternative to identifying an intermittent arrhythmia may be a long, extremely costly, hospital stay.


These easy-to-use, non-invasive and portable cardiac event monitors are especially valuable for patients who experience cardiac symptoms, such as chest pain, palpitations and dizziness. The small, lightweight monitors capture and record cardiac arrhythmias as they occur. This allows patients to have their normal lifestyle and confidence, knowing they have the latest technology to catch an arrhythmia.

eCardio Diagnostics offers innovative and secure Web-based solutions that enable real-time patient enrollment and offer physicians access to patient information whenever and wherever they need it. These include eCardioWeb, a secure HIPAA compliant patient management database that enables physicians and hospitals to access, retrieve and manage multiple test reports and patients clinical data via the Web. eCardioWeb makes it possible for caregivers to see complete patient cardiac monitoring records anytime from the office, home or while travelling.

The eCardioVue is a consolidated report with baseline that provides succinct, integrated patient information, which makes it easier to accurately analyse patient information. ECardioNroll involves a one-step Web-based enrollment process that makes it possible to start monitoring immediately after submitting the on-line enrollment and eliminates the need for physicians to provide redundant enrollment forms or patient information in the event a patient needs to be re-enrolled. The chances of a re-enrollment are minimal.

"We are in the business of preventing heart attacks and saving lives through leading edge technology and exceptional patient care", stated Larry Lawson, president and CEO. "Every aspect of our service has been designed to deliver accuracy, speed and convenience to physicians and hospitals by our dedicated professionals who understand the needs of the medical professional."

According to the American Heart Association, coronary heart disease is America's number one killer. Most heart attacks start slowly, with mild pain or discomfort. In these cases, arrhythmia monitoring can help caregivers prevent a near-term heart attack. Here are signs that can mean a person is at immediate risk of a heart attack: chest discomfort in the centre of the chest, which can feel like uncomfortable pressure, squeezing, fullness or pain; discomfort in other areas of the upper body, including the arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach; shortness of breath; and other signs, including breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or lightheadedness.

The company's executive team consists of Larry Lawson, president and CEO, Paul Minardi, CTO/CIO and Robert Jordan, executive vice president. eCardio Diagnostics LLC. is a cardiac services company that provides cardiac event monitoring services for the detection of arrhythmia. eCardio provides HIPAA compliant proprietary Web-based solutions and its state-of-the art laboratory facility provides 24-hour remote cardiac event monitoring, digital holter monitoring and pacemaker follow-up to physicians, cardiologists, electrophysiologists and other caregivers throughout the United States.
