It has been announced that Bardy Diagnostics has monitored over 40,000 patients driven by rapid adoption of the Carnation Ambulatory Monitor (CAM), the world’s first P-wave centric ambulatory cardiac patch monitor and arrhythmia detection device.
The significance of the CAM patch’s P-wave focused clinical value was recently highlighted in the September 2018 issue of the American Heart Journal that published the results of a head-to-head comparison with the iRhythm Zio XT patch. The study, “Comparison of two ambulatory patch ECG monitors: The benefit of the P-wave and signal clarity,” concluded that the BardyDx CAM patch identified 40% more arrhythmias and resulted in better, more informed clinical decision-making in 41% of patients over the iRhythm Zio XT patch.
In addition, an abstract presented at the 2018 American Heart Association Scientific Sessions in November titled, “P-Wave Centric Patch Monitors May Reduce Need for Implantable Monitors Following Cryptogenic Stroke,” suggested that the P-wave centric CAM patch should be used first to detect atrial fibrillation in cryptogenic stroke patients before the decision to implant an implantable loop recorder (ILR).
The milestone builds upon the growing market recognition of the innovative P-wave centric features of the CAM patch. Most recently, BardyDx was selected as the winner of the 2018 Fierce Innovation Life Sciences Award for Medical Device Innovation from the leading industry publisher of FierceBiotech & FiercePharma and was also named winner of the Children’s National Health System Pediatric Medical Device Innovation Competition for the CAM’s unique pediatric-friendly design and potential to address significant unmet needs in pediatric healthcare.
In addition, BardyDx was recently awarded an Innovative Technology contract with Vizient, upon recommendation of its member-led council of hospital experts for the CAM patch’s ability to enhance clinical care and patient safety.
