Personal ECG Devices: How Will Healthcare Systems Cope? A Single Centre Case Study

Rob Brisk, RR Bond, D Finlay, David McEneaney

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

The uptake of personal ECG devices is poised to
explode in coming years. This review considers the
potential impact of this on the cardiology department of an
NHS teaching trust in the UK. The authors conclude that
such devices may substantially increase the workload of a
service already under significant pressure, with unclear
benefit to patients. Potential solutions to this issue include
novel algorithms (perhaps deep learning) to minimize false
positive results.
