Cardiac Systemz, Inc.
Cardiac Systemz offers heart monitoring devices for cardiovascular patients through an extensive physician network. The Company lends its monitors to the physicians, who maintain inventory at their site, and prescribe and dispense the monitors to their patients. Cardiac Systemz generates revenue through reimbursement by Medicare and other insurance providers.
The monitoring devices use sophisticated algorithms to detect significant heart events and transmit data to the Cardiac Systemz clinically-validated monitoring/receiving center. Because the data is transmitted electronically (land lines or wireless), the patient is not restricted to a particular location. The data is immediately analyzed by certified technicians who prepare thorough diagnostic reports and communicate them to the prescribing physician, emergency medical service transport, and/or closest hospital.
The Company’s mission is to provide peace of mind to heart patients, their families, and their caregivers.

Home Heart Event Monitoring
The physicians prescribe the user-friendly Loop Event Recorder for accurate documenting of transient cardiac events (the Heart 2005A ). The Heart 2005A is the answer for long-term transtelephonic monitoring. This state-of-the-art device does not require a patient cable. It’s so small that it easily fits into a pocket, making it readily available for use at any time and any place. Patients simply place two thumbs on designated electrodes and push one button to record a rhythm lead. Recorded results are transmitted to the Heartline Receiving Station (HRS) from any standard or cell phone.
