Comes in handy for correlating symptoms to heart rate/rhythm

I’m a physician and my father in law has been having some dizzy spells. His physician didn’t seem particularly concerned and scheduled an appointment for several weeks out, which was concerning to me. I ended up getting this device to see what his heart rate and rhythm looked like when he was having the dizzy spells. It was useful in detecting that he was in sinus bradycardia, and was on too high of a dose of beta blockers.
Lousy Support – Great Product

The unit worked well both with an android as well as an IPhone 7 for 8 months, then stopped. It gave a “no signal” message. I went onto AliveCor’s site and checked the FAQs. Bottom line – I replaced the battery – still didn’t work. I completed a “problem” ticket on Mar 4 (Sat) – they promised to get back in 1 business day. Now it’s Mar 9 and no response. I sent another email but no luck. So, bottom line is this: I think the product is great – the support is lousy, so if you buy this, be sure to get Amazon’s protection plan – assuming that Amazon, and not AliveCor, backs it.
Very Nice Device

Very good device to better see what is going on with your heart function and to capture events to show your doctor. The device records basic rhythm and bpm but that is enough to show issues like PVCs, tachycardia, bradycardia, etc. For $100, the ability to capture events as they are occurring, without having to wear a monitor, is really a bargain. The sensor can be a but finicky about where it is located to get the best signal, so I would suggest trying it out a bit before mounting it to see where it works best. I would recommend it and buy it again.
Very Helpful Device
Excellent device. Works exactly as advertised. Provides a good quality single lead ECG which can be emailed to your health care provider. For me it confirmed new onset persistent atrial fibrillation, expediting further workup and management. Please note that I am a physician and aware of “red flag” symptoms that would require immediate Emergency Room care–if you are not a trained medical professional and suspect you have developed atrial fibrillation you should NOT start with this device but rather see a healthcare provider promptly. Highly recommended as long as you remember this is a medical device, and all results should be interpreted with the aid of a medical professional. One tip: the device needs to be VERY close to your phone in order to record a good quality tracing.
I like it. I have used in in my dental office and out of the office.
You only have to touch the electrodes. I did not have to wet my fingers. It is easy to get a good trace. The filter gives cleaner tract without showing extraneous muscle activities of arm. I wish there was a button to show the whole 30 second trace. I can get this, but I have to e-mail the PDF to myself. I would also like to see max and minimum pulse rates and rates for each beat.
This is amazing. If you or a family member has any arythmia problems, such as AFIB, this works great to detect and record those incidents. It allows each reading to be saved as a PDF file … we just email them to ourselves to store. Have to ignore the nagging app that tries to get you to purchase post-sale add-on … but it seems to go away after a while. Note: it works using an inaudible audio signal, not bluetooth … be sure to have it physically close to the phone microphone when using.
