Heart attack alarm implants cuts the death rate
Cardiologists have designed a new device ‘heart attack alarm’ which warns the wearer of the heart attack implants about the threatening events by beeps and vibrations.
Most of the heart attack victims normally do not have any warning symptoms and many more of them do not even feel it or recognize them too late and eventually ends fatal.
The new invention by AngelMed Guardian System hope that this device will reduce death rate by quarter.
Dr. Robert Wlodarczyk, a cardiologist at Salinas Valley Memorial Healthcare in California and the principal investigator of the Alerts tial said, “: “This device alerts you as soon as any evidence of mycardial ischaemia or heart attack begins, this giving you precious minutes to hours to get to a doctor and get help.”
The size of the heart attack alarm is as of an old style pager, implanted under the skin below the collar bone.
The implant is likely to cost £10,000 and made to either beep or vibrate like a mobile phone and due to its higher cost and invasive procedures, it is opt for the people who are at the highest risk of having a heart attack.
