Coala Life presents poster at American Heart Association´s annual meeting (AHA 2018)

Coala Life presented the latest data during the American Heart Association´s Scientific Sessions 2018 (AHA 2018) in Chicago. The annual meeting was held on November 10-12 and is meant to provide a new dimension of cardiovascular discovery and clinical practice for clinicians, basic scientists, and researchers.

The poster presented data of Coala´s new analytical algorithms with enhanced functionality, which detects atrial fibrillation based on the presence of p-wave in the ECG signal. The data shows increased accuracy in detecting atrial fibrillation (AF) and reduced false positive results. These findings conclude that the Coala Heart Monitor becomes the first integrated, smartphone-based system to detect arrhythmias and atrial fibrillation (AF) based on analysis of both P-wave and R-R variability in the ECG signal, which is in line with current clinical guidelines.

The data is published in AHA’s well renowned journal “Circulation”. To read the full article, press here.
