A new diagnostic tool will help physicians find and treat arrhythmia in a heartbeat
Every day, the heart expands and contracts about 100 000 times, pumping approximately 7 500 litres of blood annually. Rhythmic contraction is induced by electrical activity of the so-called pacemaker, a group of cells in the cardiac wall, and is important for adequate oxygenation of all the body’s tissues. Atrial fibrillation is a loss of rhythm when the heart’s pacemakers start firing in a disorganised way. It is a major cause of stroke that is treated with ablation of the abnormal tissue where the spurious signals arise. CathVision Cube is developing a pioneering electrophysiological recording system with AI-assisted guidance to help in identifying and ablating the source of atrial fibrillation with important impacts on the healthcare sector and affected individuals.
