Honolulu – The Queen’s Medical Center is the first hospital in Hawaii to use the RHYTHMIA Mapping System to create high-definition cardiac maps that can assist physicians in identifying heart rhythm disorders.
David Singh MD, an electrophysiologist and Chief of the Department of Cardiovascular Diseases at The Queen’s Medical Center, believes this will be a game-changer for patients with complex heart rhythm disorders.
“The RHYTHMIA Mapping System is an important addition to our suite of electrophysiology services, allowing us to more clearly see and understand even the most complex arrhythmias,” said Singh. “The system’s ability to create high-resolution maps using a novel algorithm is allowing us to see things we have never seen before. We believe it will greatly enhance our ability to care for our cardiac patients.”
Unlike conventional cardiac mapping systems, the RHYTHMIA HDx Mapping System offers the highest level of mapping efficiency by rapidly and automatically acquiring high volumes of data with improved resolution to generate three-dimensional maps of any chamber of the heart. The resulting maps are then used to help diagnose, locate and treat the source of rhythm abnormality.
The RHYTHMIA HDx Mapping System received CE Mark in December 2016 and U.S. Food and Drug Administration clearance in April 2017
