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.
CAUTION: Federal (USA) law restricts the sale of this device to or on the order of a physician.
