Cardiology Pathways

Digital Foundation and Innovations

Atrial Fibrillation

Patients with Atrial Fibrillation are hospitalized twice as often as patients without AFib and are 3 times more likely to have multiple admissions.1 AFib costs the United States about $26 billion each year.1

Time is critical for patients with Atrial Fibrillation who present with cardiac issues. GE’s Cardiovascular IT and Diagnostic Cardiology solutions can provide insights throughout the cardiology care pathway to help improve clinical decisions and outcomes.

Early Detection

There is a strong link between AF and stroke - one in five of all strokes can be attributed to this condition. Approximately 30 percent of people who experience AF-related strokes die during the hospital admission and another 20 percent are likely to die within a year. Care for patients with Atrial Fibrillation starts with identifying high-risk populations, for example–patients with sleep apnea, obesity and/or hypertension. Some regional guidelines recommend regular screening of all patients over 65 years old.3


ECG Recorders

Diagnosis

Diagnosis is based in part on ECG interpretation of the heart rhythm and clinical history.3 Studies indicate that one of the key factors is to differentiate between chronic and paroxysmal AF in order to find the optimal management strategy for the patient.3

Acute Coronary Syndrome

Time to intervention can be a risk: delays to reperfusion correlate with higher rates of mortality and morbidity. Approximately 80 percent of all CVD deaths are due to heart attacks.1

Time is critical for patients who present with acute chest pain, with or without cardiac history. GE’s Cardiovascular IT and Diagnostic Cardiology solutions can provide insights throughout the cardiology care pathway to help improve clinical decisions and outcomes.

Pre-Hospital Transfer

Rapid transport, ECG monitoring and patient stabilization are critical for patients having an ST-segment elevation myocardial infarction. Nearly half of potentially salvageable myocardium is lost within one hour of the coronary artery being occluded, and nearly 2/3 lost within three hours.3

The ability to send observations and test results wirelessly can be invaluable to attending physicians and interventional lab preparations — potentially enabling fast action upon arrival to aid quality patient outcomes such as door to balloon time.4

Diagnosis

There are many potential causes of chest pain. For patients not sent immediately to the interventional lab for revascularization, guidelines suggest use of biomarkers, clinical history, ECG and non-invasive imaging measurement results, and other factors, to determine TIMI risk score which in turn can guide revascularization decisions.5

There are available estimates for sensitivity and specificity for the various non-invasive tests to diagnose the presence of CAD, but other factors are frequently considered such as equipment availability and patient tolerance.6

Aortic Stenosis

Among symptomatic patients with medically treated moderate-to-severe aortic stenosis, mortality from the onset of symptoms is approximately 25 percent at one year and 50 percent at two years.1 GE Healthcare Cardiology Solutions help you make decisions that matter for your patients, staff and hospital.

Time is critical for AS patients who present with significant cardiac issues. GE’s Cardiovascular IT and Diagnostic Cardiology solutions can provide insights throughout the cardiology care pathway to help improve clinical decisions and outcomes.

Heart Failure

Heart Failure cost is 2-3 percent of the total health-care expenditures in high-income countries, and costs are projected to increase 200 percent in next 20 years world-wide. Current cost in the U.S. is $30.7 billion dollars.1 Congestive heart failure affects people of all ages, from children and young adults to the middle-aged and the elderly.

Time is critical for Heart Failure patients who present with cardiac issues. GE’s Cardiovascular IT and Diagnostic Cardiology solutions can provide insights throughout the cardiology care pathway to help improve clinical decisions and outcomes.
