How Does Xpress ECG work?
You create a free online Dashboard account and order an ECG when needed. QT Medical receives the order and ships out an Xpress ECG kit to the patient. The patient completes the ECG test, then mails PCA 500 back to QT Medical. The recorded ECG is automatically uploaded to the cloud and you will instantly receive an email notification to review the ECG on the Dashboard. The turnaround time is typically 2-4 days.
What patients can benefit from Xpress ECG at home?
There are two common clinical scenarios to use Xpress ECG. First of all, Xpress ECG can be used as a non-urgent standard resting 12-lead ECG for screening, diagnosis and follow up. To be used on patients who need pre-op clearance, routine physical, weight loss program enrollment, have cardiac symptoms (palpitation, fatigue, etc.), to rule out cardiac conditions, and under surveillance of medication side effects (most notably psychiatric, antibiotic and oncological medications). Secondly, Xpress ECG can be used for monthly Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) of patients with chronic medical conditions. This can be patients with intermittent arrhythmias, stable angina on medical therapy, congestive heart failure, diabetes and hypertension.
Can patients do a 12-lead ECG test at home?
Yes. The Xpress ECG kit includes a PCA 500 recorder, a prepositioned electrode strip, instructions, and a postage paid return envelope. PCA 500 is cleared by the FDA for patients' use at home. A clinical trial showed that over 95% patients could use PCA 500 to complete a 12-lead ECG test based on simple instructions; video instructions and FAQs are available. Our customer service can provide further assistance over the phone when needed.
Is it a standard 12-lead ECG test? How is the quality?
Yes. PCA 500 is cleared by the FDA for patients and professional use. The electrode placements follow the American Heart Association guidelines. A clinical trial showed that PCA 500 is equivalent, as a diagnostic 12-lead ECG, to the market leader Philips PageWriter TC70, used in hospitals. In fact, the ECG signal quality from patients’ use of PCA 500 at home is often better than ones done by technicians in the hospital.
