Remote Patient Monitoring

Coala and the Coala Care platform are ideal for Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) programs. Prescribe the Coala for long term monitoring of ECG, heart sounds and murmurs in chronic patients. With the platform you can also track other vital parameters including tools to help secure RPM compliance.

Patient compliance is key to RPM success. The Coala has shown in studies to have high patient compliance and satisfaction over longer periods of time. Read more about Coala and RPM solutions here.

Enhancing Cardiac Rehab

For patients on cardiac rehab programs, prescribe the Coala to engage patients and remotely follow the heart over 3 months, or even up to a year. Ideal to help increase adherence to rehab programs with non-invasive, real-time cardiac event detection.

Coala is covered by nationwide payors and is easy to prescribe and enroll on-line together with a 24/7 monitoring center option. Read more about Coala and Cardiac Rehab here.

Diagnosing Intermittent Palpitations

Millions of patients suffer from intermittent palpitations and alerts from consumer wearable devices. Prescribe the Coala as a first-line ECG monitor to help diagnose these symptoms. The Coala is non-invasive, patch-free and can be prescribed as long as medically necessary.

The Coala has shown to help reduce palpitation symptoms, anxiety, and levels of depression related to palpitations. Read more in the Red Heart Study by the Karolinska Institute (Stockholm, Sweden).

Read more in the recent clinical protocol for patients with palpitations and other symptoms related to arrhythmia.

Monitoring Pre- and Post- Procedures

The Coala can be used to remotely monitor baseline rhythms prior to a procedure and help physicians identify potential surgical risks.
Patients can then continue to monitor post-procedure from home to help physicians detect complications and potentially reduce readmissions.

Complement to Holter and patches for short-term ECG monitoring

Coala can be an ideal solution when Holter or retrospective ECG patches are inconclusive. The Coala can be prescribed as long as medially necessary and has no wires, adhesives and needs of surgery.

Recordings are easy to access with automatic interpretation and real-time reports are available on-demand in the cloud based Coala Care portal. Event monitoring is nationwide reimbursed which ensures your team’s time is covered, and no unexpected bills for the patient.

The Coala can be prescribed with Home Enrollment, read more here.

 

Remote Lung Auscultation

The COALA can also be used for remote monitoring of lung sounds from a patient’s home. The unique stethoscope and respiratory monitoring solution is available with support of FDA’s Emergency Guidance during the COVID-19 public health emergency.

Easy to enroll patient’s directly from their homes, eliminating the need of physical visits. Data is transmitted in real-time, making COALA ideal for Telemedicine use.

Monitor Patients on Cardiotoxic Drugs

Drugs with potential cardiac toxicity ae particularly prominent in cancer treatment. Some drugs can cause arrythmias and require frequent monitoring of ECG, often requiring visits to clinics.

Prescribe the Coala for long-term patient monitoring from home to help detect rhythm abnormalities.

Murmur Detection

COALA has an integrated high-performance stethoscope enabling remote auscultation of the heart.

The Coala Phonocardiogram (PCG) analyzes the heart sound in perfect sync with the ECG to aid the detection of S1, S2 and murmurs. Enhance the remote auscultation by using the five integrated filters in the Coala Care portal.

A key Coala-study is the TEASE-trial were the Coala was used to monitor cryptogenic stroke patients. The Coala was used twice daily, and when symptoms occurred, for 28 days. The monitoring detected previously undiagnosed AF in 9% of the patients, at a mean of 19.7 days after stroke. Patient compliance to the Coala monitoring protocol exceeded 90%. Read a summary here.

Meet the patients

My Coala helps me feel calm, it gives me a sense of security and control. I think it's simply amazing!

Alexandra Charles von Hofsten, Founder of the 1.6 & 2.6 million club

I always have my Coala with me. With the Coala I can keep track of my heart and feel safe. We need to talk more about atrial fibrillation.

I am absolutely sure that if I would have had the Coala earlier, the lead time from my first arrhythmias, to worries and finally getting a diagnosis would have been so much quicker. Coala has meant so much for my wellbeing and comfort.
