Trying to maintain a healthy heart has become more difficult in the wake of COVID-19. While the pandemic has increased remote tele-health, there are glaring vulnerabilities due to a lack of real-time cardiac monitoring. Heart attacks are on the rise as a result of patients ignoring symptoms, staying home and not going to the hospital. COVID related stress has caused a surge in cardiac health issues. Additionally, some recovering COVID patients have since developed heart issues related to the virus. As a result, the need for real-time cardiac monitoring is more important than ever.
