The MCOT is a device, about the size of a small cell phone, that the patient wears. It is connected to the patient by 3 wires. It continuously records the hearts rhythm and rate and any abnormalities. CardioNet monitors patients 24 hours a day 7 days a week via the small sensor the patient wears as he/she continue with their normal daily routine. As events occur, patient activity is automatically transmitted to the CardioNet Monitoring Center for analysis and response. If the patient has symptoms, such as palpitations or chest pain, the patient may also press a button on the device to note the episode. This device can be worn up to 30 days. The monitoring center provides doctors with real-time information to help in the diagnosis and treatment of patient conditions.
