First experience with a Mobile Cardiac Outpatient Telemetry (MCOT) system for the diagnosis and management of cardiac arrhythmia
Mobile Health Units
Recently, a mobile cardiac outpatient telemetry (MCOT) system has become available that monitors the electrocardiogram continuously, recognizes arrhythmias automatically, and transmits abnormal rhythms instantaneously. MCOT does not require activation by the patient. We report data from the first 100 consecutive patients monitored by this new technology.
