I do not have wireless or mobile connectivity

My recording is "unable to read" (Yellow dot)


Do you have an external defibrillator or any kind of pacemaker? They can interfere with the electrical signal being sent from the device to your phone. If you can take it off (i.e., as you do when you shower, sleep, etc.); make a recording when it is off. Are there any other electronic devices near while making the recording? (other phones, laptops, tv etc.) Move away from these electronics to insure there is no interference. Are your hands dry? Try using electrode gel or hand sanitizer. Also try washing your hands and creating a recording while your hands are damp. Are you moving or talking during the recording? Try sitting still, not talking, with yor hands resting on a table to be sure you get a smooth recording.




My recording is "irregular heart beat" (Red Dot); what does this mean? What should I do?


This means that ECG Check has detected an irregular heart rate rhythm. However since ECG Check is for screening only, and is not a diagnostic device, you are advised to share your ECG waveform with your doctor, or a certified cardiologist or an advance practice clinician (a physician's assistant or registered nurse) any one of whom can read your ECG and provide a diagnosis.
