The Zio Event Card
The ZIO® Event Card is a prescription-only, single-use, disposable, looping ECG monitor that can be worn for up to 30 days. With the profile of three stacked credit cards and weighing less than 2 ounces, the ZIO Event Card is intended to be comfortable to wear and inconspicuous under clothing. The ZIO Event Card records the ECG during normal daily activities. It continually scans the heart for ECG activity, but only keeps the data when patients indicate they have a symptom by pressing the RECORD button. Recordings are then transmitted over the phone by the patient to a representative at the iRhythm Clinical Centers (iCC). The ZIO Event Card is indicated for use on patients who experience transient symptoms such as syncope, palpitations, shortness of breath, or dizziness.
