EKO Duo Device in Patients with Genetic Heart Diseases


About this study

The purpose of this study is to evaluate diagnostic accuracy of the EKO DUO System in patients with Genetic Heart Diseases and develop novel algorithms to diagnose these conditions. The device will be placed on the chest (similar to a stethoscope exam) and will simultaneously record an ECG and phonocardiogram (PCG) for up to 120 seconds. Additional data obtained will include clinical characteristics, past medical history, recent medications and procedure, laboratory data, and echocardiographic and ECG studies.

Tools like the EKO Duo device can be used to improve diagnosis and risk stratification in patients with genetic heart diseases (GHDs).
