Intended use and indications for use
The intended use is to detect atrial fibrillation in adult population. The target group is adult population. Indication for use is medical professional’s or layman’s suspicion of atrial fibrillation or intention to exclude or detect the existence of possible atrial fibrillation. The Precordior Cardiosignal Application is not intended to be used by persons with known or diagnosed cardiac rhythm disorder other than atrial fibrillation.
Contraindications and restrictions of use
Turned-on phone next to the pacemaker implant may cause electromagnetic interference (EMI) which can result malfunction of the pacemaker. Cardiac pacemakers can also falsify the result of the rhythm analysis. For these reasons cardiac pacemaker wearers should not use the App.
The positive result indicating probable atrial fibrillation needs to be verified by a physician. The app is intended for screening purposes of possible atrial fibrillation and is not intended to be a diagnostic device. The diagnosis is placed by a physician and should occur as medical guidelines recommend, e.g. with 12-lead electrocardiogram recording.
