Earbud technology to diagnose common cardiac conditions
Sanjeev Bhavnani, MD
This study is being done to validate the use of an experimental infrasound earbud technology in diagnosing cardiac conditions. The gold standard for diagnosing cardiac conditions is the use of ultrasound technology and invasive cardiac catheterization. The goal of this study is to see if the infrasound earbud technology can be used as a potential non-invasive diagnostic test.
Be scheduled for a catheterization procedure to investigate cardiac conditions
Be willing to wear earbuds during the procedure and echocardiogram
Have a normal sinus rhythm
Patients must not:
Known history of carotid disease
Moderate valvular disease
Have any implantable devices (Pacemaker, ICD, CardioMems, TENS unit, continuous glucose monitor, etc.)
This is not a treatment study. The study visit will take place during your regular clinical visit for diagnostic testing at Anderson Medical Pavilion, Scripps La Jolla.
