Congenital Heart Conditions

1 Jul

Cardiac Monitoring Services is a healthcare and medical technology company that specializes in the production of state-of-the-art heart monitoring devices to be used by medical professionals. The technologies developed by Cardiac Monitoring Services including a 30-day event monitor and the Holter device, both of which are useful to doctors in making accurate diagnoses of heart conditions.

Last fall, the American Heart Association released a list of the most common heart defects affecting Americans today. Unlike heart disease, congenital heart defects involve structural issues within the cardiovascular system that generally evolve from an unusual formation of major blood vessels around the heart. Advances in cardiovascular technologies, such as heart monitors, have made it possible to monitor and even cure defects that were once thought to be permanent and sometimes fatal. The American Heart Association broke down its list of common congenital heart defects into 15 categories, including aortic valve stenosis (AVS), complete atrioventricular canal defect (CACD), Ebstein’s Anomaly, and single ventricle defects.
