Home respiratory diagnostic provider VirtuOx has launched a new service: CardioCHECK, a way to diagnose cardiac arrhythmias in the patient’s home.

The VirtuOx CardioCHECK program allow prescribers to order mobile cardiac telemetry (MCT) at the same time as other VirtuOx services like overnight pulse oximetry for nocturnal hypoxemia or home sleep testing for obstructive sleep apnea.

Kyle Miko, founder and CMO for VirtuOx, says in a release, “Research has shown arrhythmias are common with patients who have comorbid conditions like sleep apnea and hypoxemia so now offering mobile cardiac telemetry was a natural progression for VirtuOx.”

Bill Bowden, DO, FACC, a VirtuOx medical directors says, “with access to this large amount of data, we have uncovered huge patient populations who have cardiac arrhythmias at night with severe bradycardia/tachycardia events who may benefit from an MCT.”
