Syncope | Sternal ECG Patch Comparison Trial
Syncope research study
What is the primary objective of this study?
This study is intended to compare the new Carnation Ambulatory Monitoring (CAM) System, a patch monitoring system, with the Holter monitoring system. Holters represent the current standard for continuous recording of the ECG over extended periods.
Who is eligible to participate?
Inclusion Criteria: - Syncope of uncertain etiology or - Pre-syncope of uncertain etiology or - Palpitations of uncertain etiology or - Management of known AF/SVT patients Exclusion Criteria: - Any dermatitis or infected skin over the sternum (Carnation patch) or left upper anterior thorax (Zio patch). - A sternal or thoracic incision that extends under the patch within 3 months from the date of enrollment
Which medical condition, disease, disorder, syndrome, illness, or injury is researched?
Interventions can include giving participants drugs, medical devices, procedures, vaccines, and other products that are either investigational or already available or noninvasive approaches such as surveys, education, and interviews.
Research studies and clinical trials typically have two or more research arms. An arm is a group of people who receive the same treatment in the study.
