This article details one such pre-clinical study for outpatient ambulatory monitoring. One case of a 37 year old female where PR interval prolongation was observed is detailed below.
Monitra's upBeat® Biosensors
upBeat® is a wearable medical grade biosensing skin patch that continuously 24x7 captures electrocardiogram (ECG) and tracks posture as well as activities in real-time. This physiological data is transmitted continuously to the phone and the information is relayed to our cloud platform, upBeat®.AI.
Heart Rate Plot during the session
Instantaneous Heart Rate versus Time plots were created for each subject where each activity was noted.
The heart rate is about 70 bpm.
The heart rate is about 80 bpm. Notice down the heart rate slows down in the plot below. Several studies have shown how during deep expiration can slow your heart rateand vice-versa.
The heart rate is about 110 bpm.
Climbing up & down stairs
The heart rate is about 150 bpm.
The heart rate reduces to about 70 bpm. Notice the PR interval prolongation.
