Branislav Vajdic, PhD, and the Chief Executive Officer and Founder of HeartBeam, Inc. joins eHealth Radio and the Heart Health and Health News Channels. HeartBeam is the first 12-lead medical grade heart attack detection that's personal, portable, and easy-to-use.
Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels and guest Dr. Branislav Vajdic discuss the following:
Please tell us about your background and why you launched HeartBeam. We'd love to hear more about how this device is being used for the first time outside of a medical setting, and what makes it different from what's currently available.
According to the American Heart Association, more people die from heart attacks during the last week of December than at any other time of the year. How is HeartBeam positioned to slow this trend in terms of saving lives, trips to the hospitals, and how it helps people know if they are having a heart attack?
How will HeartBeam impact patients in remote areas and what does this mean for virtual medicine?
HeartBeam is being tested and in trials. Can you tell us a bit more? Where is HeartBeam currently being used? What has been the feedback from doctors and patients?
What's next for HeartBeam in 2023 and even in 2024?
