FDA approves implant for detecting oncoming heart attacks

from Medgadget

Angel Medical Systems, based in Tinton Falls, New Jersey, won U.S. Food and Drug Administration approval for its AngelMed Guardian implantable device that may help detect oncoming heart attacks before they even happen. It looks like a pacemaker and it monitors for ST segment changes, an ECG sign of ischemia. When it detects sustained ST segment changes, the implant sends a signal to an external device that then warns the patient to seek medical care. more
