Post-Cryptogenic Stroke Pathway

Early detection of post-stroke AF with comprehensive monitoring program

AF patients are at 5x greater risk for stroke1

Detect silent atrial fibrillation (AF) in your cryptogenic stroke patients quicker to lower the risk of a second stroke by using MCOT® (Mobile Cardiac Outpatient Telemetry) technology through our comprehensive monitoring program that provides a simple, noninvasive, outpatient solution that will elevate the standard of care you can offer your patients and streamline the workflow for the practice.

Lower cost of care2
Capture AF more quickly1
Reduce risk of second stroke2

100 %

Proven to detect AF with 100% sensitivity and 100% positive predictivity in the detection of
≥30-second AF episodes. 3

5x better

Proven to be more than five times better at diagnosing post-stroke AF than the ILR after 21 days of monitoring1

8x lower

Almost 8 times lower costs were achieved with improved detection rates and reduction of secondary stroke risk due to new anticoagulant use in subjects with MCOT patch detected AF.2
Philips BioTel Heart comprehensive monitoring program enables your organization to meet the AHA/ASA Guidelines which suggest that for patients who have had an acute ischemic stroke or TIA with no other apparent cause, prolonged AF monitoring (~30 days) is reasonable within 6 months of the event.4
