5-Day Wireless Home Heart Monitoring

Technological advances in the development of smart phones, expansion of cellular networks and WiFi/Internet accessibility has allowed cardiac monitoring in the comfort of your home.  Using a smart phone adapter, patients are now able to capture and transmit single lead ECG data to their clinician. Dr Del Priore offers this option.

24-Hour Home Blood Pressure Monitor

This provides useful clinical information as to blood pressure fluctuations when patients are going about their daily activities such as sleeping, eating, or walking. The blood pressure cuff automatically inflates at regular intervals and records blood pressure readings over a 24-hour period which will then be reviewed by Dr Del Priore.

Exercise Stress Test

Stress tests show how well your heart handles physical

activity. Because your heart pumps harder and faster

when you exercise, some heart disorders are easier to

diagnose when your heart is working hard. During an

Exercise Stress Test, your heart will be checked

while you exercise on a treadmill or stationary bicycle.

Electrocardiogram (ECG or EKG) electrodes will be

placed overt your heart, so Dr Del Priore can see your

heart's conduction pattern in real time.

Coronary Artery Calcium Scoring

This test that is also known as “coronary artery calcium (CAC) scoring,” a “heart scan,” or “calcium score.” This is done via a CT (computed tomography) scan of the heart and it measures the amount of calcified plaque within the coronary arteries. This information is used to calculate your risk of developing coronary artery disease (CAD). Dr Del Priore offers this as a transition study after a Stress Test.

Implantable Loop Recorder (“ILR”)

 

An ILR  is a small device that is implanted under the skin on your chest and continuously monitors your heart rate and rhythm, while storing them in its memory for up to 3 years. Useful for patients with occasional symptoms such as palpitations, dizzy spells or blackouts which standard 24-48 hour heart monitoring does not pick up. 

 

Dr Del Priore works with the most up-to-date and technologically advanced system. He uses the ST Jude Medical Confirm RX ICM  (Implantable Cardiac Monitor) with SharpSense™ technology that is empowered by smartphone remote monitoring.

You do not need to go to a hospital for an ILP to be placed. It is a short 15-20 minute procedure that Dr Del Priore does in the privacy and comfort of his office. Dr Del Priore uses his own special technique to ensure a painless procedure utilizing precisely placed local anesthetics.
