Wellue ECG Recorder with AI Analysis Review

Wellue ECG Recorder with AI Analysis Review

-From Mohammed Hasnain Saiyed, a cardiac surgery resident.

In hospital we know that small ECG device with 3-5 cables that monitors our Heart for 24hours. But these days many mobile health gadgets started off as modified fitness trackers, or simply already developed medical devices altered to be powered by a mobile phone.  It’s a booming industry that is exciting to follow, but sometimes products can seem repetitive.

Recently, however, there have been a few companies that are truly taking it to the next level of mobile gadgets by providing unique tools for previously unavailable services. The Wellue 24h Heart Monitor is one such device.


Wellue has been perfecting the mobile phone customized electrocardiogram (ECG), building up to a point where they have now AI Heart Health Monitor, 24 Hours Holter with Free AI Analysis & PC Report, Chargeable Home Heart Recorder. I wanted to find out first hand what this device was all about. Here is my product review.

Appearance and Design

Small, slim, and cute. The device itself is compact enough to fit in the palm of your hand and is very lightweight. It has rubbery feeling. With chest strap one can easily sleep and exercise. One can wear it everywhere all the time of course not in shower or swimming pool.

Product features

– Long-term 24h ECG recording with AI analysis of the recorded ECG

– Two wearing modes with chest strap or electrodes
– Professional preparation of the ECG data in report form (PDF) e.g. for forwarding to the doctor!

This is real deal, I mean its works for me, I never saw such a device in one of the best hospitals in the world in last 10 years.

I don’t have any heart problem but i use it to monitor my ECG during Sleep and exercise and it can point out when it was and how much it was. I wanted to monitor my heart ECG because of curiosity as a doctor and as someone who like to do sport.

Just like any other ECG device you can monitor your ECG in your mobile at anytime.

Setup

This was impressive. From opening the package to getting heart readings took about 5 minutes. You download the free app, set up a quick account with some basic information, and after a few instructions you are live and pulsing. 

Packet comes with pen drive to install computer program to further read ECG and read AI analysed report. You can’t see graphs but ECG pages moves like continues screen with clicks. I mean I see many ECG strips on computer in Hospitals that’s why I find it very easy to analyse and use.

Use

If i say true as a doctor i would love to use it for my family and friends.

As you can see below in my report Maximum Heart Rate and Time of event.

Here you can see all the events that can happen and ECG strips

Here it was separately shown when my Heart Rate was abnormal i.e. 140during exercise.

I will use it to monitor my family and friends  all the time such an intelligent device.

The application of EagleView Ultrasound in detecting gallstone in the gallbladder 

The application of EagleView Ultrasound in detecting gallstone in the gallbladder 

– by Dr. Nigel Minihane, member of the Royal College of Physicians

Case

A 68-year-old man presented to his general practitioner with a 24-hour history of constant, centralised abdominal pain in the absence of pyrexia or other symptoms of sepsis.

On examination, he was tender in the right hypochondrium with no clinical evidence of liver enlargement.

Right subcostal POC EagleView ultrasound nicely demonstrated the presence of a gallstone in a contracted gallbladder with an associated acoustic shadow.

The patient was able to return home with an oral antibiotic cover and will be referred for a surgical opinion.

Conclusion

The ability to rule in a suspected clinical diagnosis increases diagnostic accuracy for generalist physicians.

EagleView Ultrasound in the Diagnosis of Inguinal Lymph Node

EagleView Ultrasound in the Diagnosis of Inguinal Lymph Node

– by Naroopa N, Registered Diagnostic Medical Sonographer From USA

Case

The patient is a 70-year-old woman. The patient is having right leg swelling and pain in the upper leg medial area. Ultrasound scan is performed using the EagleView probe. The deep femoral artery and vein are observed in the sagittal plane clearly. Upon scanning the patient to rule out DVT (deep vein thrombosis) the deep veins are clearly observed and close with compression, as shown below.

Color doppler is applied and demonstrated a beautiful doppler flow in the deep veins and the deep arteries with pulsed wave option. Pulsed wave shows a clear triphasic wave form in the femoral artery.

Upon augmentation, the femoral vein is showing filling in blue doppler color and the difference in the waveform is clearly displayed when augmentation occurs.  

Conclusion

Upon scanning the area of pain; two inguinal lymph nodes areas seen on the right side. Impression: There was no evidence of deep vein thrombus or arterial obstruction. The patient has numerous inguinal lymph nodes that were measured and will be monitored.

Improve Life Quality with Heart Failure

Improve Life Quality with Heart Failure

Heart failure doesn’t mean the heart has stopped working. Rather, it means that the heart works less efficiently than normal. The heart is unable to pump blood around the body properly.

There are several things you can do to improve life quality if you have heart failure. Among them:

Reduce the Salt in Your Diet — Limit foods high in salt. Aim to eat a diet that includes fruits and vegetables, whole grains, fat-free or low-fat dairy products, and lean proteins.

Cardiovascular Exercise — Moderate aerobic activity helps keep the rest of your body healthy and conditioned, reducing the demands on your heart muscle. But be sure to talk to your doctor about an exercise program that’s right for you.

Prevent respiratory infections — Ask your doctor about getting influenza, pneumonia vaccinations.

Take your medications as prescribed — Do not stop taking them without first contacting your doctor.

Reduce stress — Find ways to reduce stress in your life. To give your heart a rest, try napping or putting your feet up when possible. Spend time with friends and family to be social and help keep stress at bay. Ask your doctor or nurse to point you in the right direction.

Keep Your Blood Pressure Low — In heart failure, the release of hormones causes the blood vessels to constrict or tighten. The heart must work hard to pump blood through the constricted vessels. It’s important to keep your blood pressure controlled so that your heart can pump more effectively without extra stress.

Monitor Effects of Treatments — Wearing a monitor recording 24-hour EKG may tell your doctor

– If your medicines are working.

– If a pacemaker or an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator(ICD) is working properly.

10+ Signs of Sleep Apnea

10+ Signs of Sleep Apnea

Overview

Sleep apnea is a common and potentially serious sleep disorder in which your breathing is repeatedly interrupted while you sleep. If left untreated, sleep apnea can contribute to type 2 diabetes and heart disease while increasing your likelihood of stroke and heart attack.

Sleep apnea can affect toddlers, children, and adults, although some of the identifying symptoms are different depending on your age.

Here’s everything you need to know about the signs and symptoms of sleep apnea.

Signs and symptoms of sleep apnea in adults

If a number of these 13 signs describe you, then there’s a good chance you may have sleep apnea.

  • You snore loudly.
  • Your bed partner says that you snore and sometimes stop breathing when you sleep.
  • You sometimes wake up abruptly with shortness of breath.
  • You sometimes wake up choking or gasping.
  • You often wake up to use the bathroom.
  • You wake up with a dry mouth or sore throat.
  • You often wake up with a headache.
  • You have insomnia (difficulty staying asleep).
  • You have hypersomnia (excessive daytime sleepiness).
  • You have attention, concentration, or memory problems while awake.
  • You are irritable and experience mood swings.
  • You have risk factors for sleep apnea, such as being overweight or obese, drinking alcohol, or smoking tobacco.
  • You have a decreased interest in sex or are experiencing sexual dysfunction.

Signs of sleep apnea in Children

According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, 10 to 20 percent of children who snore may have sleep apnea. Overall, an estimated 3 percent of children have sleep apnea.

Many children with untreated sleep apnea have behavioral, adaptive, and learning issues that are similar to the symptoms of ADHD:

  • difficulty with learning
  • poor attention span
  • poor performance at school

Look for these warning signs of sleep apnea in your child:

  • snoring
  • mouth breathing (while asleep and awake)
  • breathing pauses during sleep
  • bedwetting
  • daytime sleepiness

Signs of sleep apnea in toddlers

If you think your toddler may have a sleep disorder, look for these warning signs of sleep apnea while they’re sleeping:

  • snoring and difficulty breathing
  • pauses in breathing
  • restlessness
  • coughing or choking
  • sweating profusely

You can also look for the following signs while they’re awake:

  • prone to irritability, crankiness, and frustration
  • falling asleep at inappropriate times
  • tonsil- or adenoid-related health problems
  • growing more slowly than they should (both height and weight)

When to see a doctor

If you have the warning signs of sleep apnea, discuss your symptoms with your doctor. They might have some advice tailored to your specific situation or they might recommend you to a sleep specialist. They can perform a sleep study, or polysomnogram, to help diagnose sleep apnea. This test monitors many things like brain waves, eye movement, breathing, and oxygen levels in the blood. Snoring and gasping sounds, as well as stopping breathing during sleep, are also measured.

If your child is showing the signs that indicate sleep apnea, discuss your concerns with your pediatrician. Following diagnosis, your pediatrician should have a number of suggestions regarding treatment. Often they will refer you to an otolaryngologist (an ear, nose, and throat specialist) to see if removing the tonsils and adenoids could solve the issue.

If you have seen signs of sleep apnea in your toddler, review your observations with your pediatrician. Their diagnosis will include the impact of your toddler’s weight and potential allergies on their sleep. After examining your toddler’s upper airway, the pediatrician might refer you to a pulmonologist (a lung specialist) or an otolaryngologist. Removing your toddler’s tonsils and adenoids could be the recommendation.

Takeaway

Sleep apnea is more common than you might think. And it’s not just limited to adults. If you, your child, or your toddler are showing the warning signs of sleep apnea, there’s a risk of serious health consequences. Make an appointment with your doctor to discuss your concerns, symptoms, and potential treatment.
