After a stroke, people who develop atrial fibrillation (AF) have an up to 5 times greater risk of a second stroke.1
She wears an MCOT Patch® cardiac monitor because if AF occurs, MCOT has the best chance of finding it.*
BioTel Heart’s MCOT Patch is a convenient heart monitor that detects and transmits abnormal heart rhythms wirelessly.
MCOT is proven to be nearly five times better at diagnosing post-stroke AF than alternative devices after 21 days of monitoring.1 †
MCOT is the only cardiac monitor proven to detect AF (≥ 30 seconds) with 100% sensitivity and 100% positive predictivity.*
