Mobile Cardiac Telemetry Monitors
Mobile cardiac telemetry (MCT) monitors offer substantial technological advancements compared to traditional Holter and event monitoring. Mobile cardiac telemetry monitors are proven to be useful for detecting both symptomatic and asymptomatic cardiac arrhythmias and wirelessly transmit this information in real time. Although MCT monitors are proving to be superior, each of the MCT monitors available on the market today vary in size, function as well functional capabilities. Our goal is to provide physicians and medical professionals with the most comprehensive information available to select the right monitor for your medical facility.
