Abstract

A novel cardiac health device technique development for reliable, non-invasive and cost-effective heart screening in preventive cardiovascular healthcare is presented. In particular, identification of apparently healthy individuals involved in sports activities (particularly in the young, age <35 years) who may be at-risk of sudden-cardiac-death (SCD) is mainly focused here. Nevertheless, the same device technique may be prospectively extended for detecting cardiovascular abnormalities in children and adolescents with type1-diabetes, and also in detecting patients with Brugada syndrome. The device system has been aimed to provide a single figure diagnostic output, thus, not requiring highly-skilled medical personnel. The principles of the required ECG-waveform analysis algorithm have been reported in previous clinical studies. A prototype system platform design that will enable low-cost, portability and key user-friendly characteristics was implemented and in-vitro tested. Real-time firmware integrity and cardiac fitness detection algorithm performed reliably with an in-vitro positive SCD ECG-waveform modelling technique.
