FCM Cardiac Event Monitoring Service
Patient-activated, transtelephonic cardiac event monitoring is an economical, diagnostic tool which allows patients to record arrhythmia or ischemic episodes whenever and wherever they happen with the use of a miniature transmitter. Patients experiencing fleeting symptoms including angina, palpitations or unexplained dizziness have the capability of correlating these symptoms with their EKG's at the time they occur, then transmitting their EKG to certified, cardiac technicians at First-Call Medical. The service is available 24-hours a day, 365 days a year. In the event of an abnormal EKG, the ordering physician is notified immediately.
