Bengaluru, 21 October 2022: Dozee, India’s first contactless Remote Patient Monitoring  (RPM) company will soon launch an ambulatory Electrocardiogram (ECG) patch to monitor patients with cardiovascular disease (CVD). This easy-to-use ECG patch augments Dozee’s  current AI-powered RPM system to play a key role in assisting Health Care Professionals  (HCPs) in identifying early signs of cardiac deterioration ensuring there is timely medical  intervention, thereby improving patient safety. 

This ambulatory ECG patch monitors the electrical activity of your heart continuously over  multiple days. It will help detect critical cardiac arrhythmias, so HCPs can manage critical  situations with swift data-backed medical decisions. Since, Dozee also allows them to  remotely monitor vital parameters such as heart rate, respiration rate, blood pressure,  oxygen saturation, and temperature, HCPs can get a comprehensive understanding of the  patient’s condition. 

The ECG patch is small, flexible, light and convenient to use and the physician can remotely  get alerts and view the live and continuous ECG of the patient from anywhere as the system  is cloud-enabled. 

Dr. Ruchit Shah, Interventional Cardiologist, Saifee Hospital, Mumbai said “The only way we  can diagnose patients at an increased risk of sudden cardiac arrest and death or  cardiovascular disorders is by early detection. But, with a large gap in the number of  healthcare facilities and people in need of care, these signs can often be missed by  conventional testing methods and can be bridged by integrating with technology – and  Dozee’s ECG patch helps us do just that. Patients who are at risk of suffering from a  cardiovascular incident tend to show some signal intensity changes on ECG which can be  picked up by continuous remote monitoring. These changes, when picked up early and  detected can be treated on time and can be lifesaving. Dozee’s ECG patch is a small step in  early detection and treatment and can help in improving longevity, lifestyle and reduction in  mortality.”  

“We are excited to enter the cardiac monitoring segment in India with our ECG patch, which is an addition to our vitals monitoring portfolio. This technology can be especially pivotal in India, as cardiovascular disease has become the leading cause of morbidity and mortality over the last three decades. We envisage that Dozee’s Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) portfolio will become an integral part of cardiac care in the near future both in hospital and at home,” said Mudit Dandwate, CEO & Co-founder – Dozee

With an estimated prevalence range from 1.3 million to 4.6 million cardiac cases a year, and an annual incidence of 4.91k–1.8 million [1], cardiac ailments are a fast growing disease  burden. While there are efforts being made to contain the epidemic by educating people  about preventive measures, especially those at higher risk, the ever increasing burden of  patients living with life threatening indications of the ailment, poses a noteworthy challenge.  

Dozee’s new foray into cardiology will help take patient safety to the next level and change the way patients are monitored in the hospital – ensuring support across the spectrum of public and private healthcare.
