Why wait to treat an irregular heartbeat if you can prevent it?
You probably know somebody suffering from a cardiac arrhythmia, or an irregular heartbeat. But current medicine focuses on treating arrhythmias after they form. At Rhythio Medical, we are building the first preventative approach to maintaining your heartbeat. Because we don't want to wait until your life is on the line to act.
The leading natural cause of death in the United States
Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD) is the most prolific natural killer in the United States. These deaths can largely be attributed to serious, life-threatening arrhythmias such as ventricular fibrillation (VF).
Almost 5 million Americans suffer from some type of arrhythmia, including atrial fibrillation (A-fib) or ventricular tachycardia (VT).
Cardiology has made huge strides in arrhythmia care over time, and treatments such as pacemakers, ablation, defibrillation (ICDs), and medication are far better than they were in decades past. But they all have downsides, and there are still hundreds of thousands of deaths annually. If we can identify which patients are most at risk, why can't we try to intervene before an arrhythmia forms?
At Rhythio Medical, our vision is for fewer people to ever experience a life-threatening arrhythmia. And we aim to help those patients that end up needing treatment enjoy better outcomes. It's a simple shift in philosophy - but it could change cardiology forever.
