Results of a prospective, multicenter, intra-patient study with blinded assessors involving Stroke and TIA patients, admitted
consecutively in the Stroke Unit, comparing the new diagnostic technology SRA with standard Continuous ECG Monitoring (CEM)
Patients with acute ischemic stroke were examined with standard bed monitors within the first 48 hours from SU admission. The ECG data were evaluated with the Stroke Risk Analysis (SRA®). All available CCM strips, standard ECG, or 24hour Holter ECG during the whole sleep period on the SU, were...
Extended automatic analysis of continuous ECG monitoring(aCEM) substantially improves the identification of patients with newly diagnosed atrial fibrillation during hospitalization for acute ischemic stroke
