Merry mingling What are the holidays if not getting together with friends and family? It is the time of year for happy get-togethers and heart to heart conversations with those you love! Speaking of matters of the heart – while keeping a check on your health and heart rhythms when managing chronic conditions like cardiovascular disease can be stressful with limited time for in-person doctor consults and check-ups or while out and about, there is hope in the form of health tech! Remote monitoring devices, such as insertable cardiac monitors, help keep you connected, cared for and in-the-know at all times, giving you more control (and comfort) to navigate busy celebrations with ease. Furthermore, since these devices are linked to your mobile phone via apps, your physician has remote access to all your readings, allowing for timely diagnosis and intervention of required.
