Will this change your practice – Cardiology

This session provides a critical analysis of Smartwatch ECG technology and its role in detecting the causes of syncope. In addition to its well-established use in detecting atrial fibrillation, Smartwatch ECG technology has made significant advancements in diagnosing other forms of tachyarrhythmia, bradyarrhythmias, and even ECG features associated with sudden cardiac death.
