Medical technology company Biotronik has announced the first global implant of its BIOMONITOR IV implantable cardiac monitor (ICM) with artificial intelligence (AI).
Montefiore Einstein Medicine Professor Dr Luigi Di Biase carried out the first procedure with the system.
Di Biase said: “The data shows that these new features have the potential to reduce false positive alerts for our patients and allow us to focus on actionable events, providing more efficient care.”
The ICM integrates the company’s SmartECG technology with AI to lower all false positive detections by 86% and preserve 98% of true episodes.
It is claimed to be the only ICM that can differentiate between premature atrial contractions and premature ventricular contractions, helping healthcare professionals to use better tools for risk stratification and diagnosis.
The ICM has a long battery life and wireless connectivity, which allows seamless data transmission and remote monitoring, enabling to avoid frequent in-person clinic visits.
