Stick-On “Zio” Patch Helps Diagnose Irregular Heartbeat

A study conducted at Scripps Health has found that a novel new heart monitoring device helped emergency room patients avoid unnecessary follow-up care. Scripps Health electrophysiologist Steven Higgins, MD talks with NBC Channel 7 about Zio® Patch, a single-use ambulatory cardiac monitor that looks similar to a 2- by 5-inch adhesive bandage and sticks to a patient’s chest. The device can continuously monitor their heart rhythm for up to 14 days.
