A Startling Rise in Heart Diseases, Globally;Symptoms & Prevention

An estimated 17.7 million people died from Cardio Vascular Diseases in 2015, representing 31% of all global deaths. Of these deaths, an estimated 7.4 million were due to coronary heart disease and 6.7 million were due to stroke.*

Symptoms of a Heart Diseases

Signs and symptoms of heart failure commonly include

  • shortness of breath,
  • excessive tiredness,
  • leg swelling,
  • chronic coughing or wheezing,
  • nausea or lack of appetite,
  • high heart rate,
  • confusion or impaired thinking.

In case you have been diagnosed with heart failure, it's important for you to manage and keep track of symptoms and report any sudden changes to your doctor.

Preventive Measures

  • Take responsibility for your health.
  • Know your risks.
  • Don’t smoke or expose yourself to second-hand smoke.
  • Maintain a healthy blood pressure.
  • Monitor your cholesterol (blood lipids).
  • Limit your calories.
  • Make exercise a daily habit.
  • Pick your pills wisely.
  • Reduce stress.
  • Stay informed: Science changes constantly.

The Wireless BOLT ECG device is compact and portable that monitors your heart condition.

What is an ECG?

Electrocardiogram (ECG) is a process of recording the strength, timing and electrical activity of the heart with bipolar lead using a pair of standard electrodes positioned on the human body. By these electrodes, ECG device detects tiny electrical changes that arise from heart muscle’s electrophysiological pattern of depolarizing and repolarizing during each heartbeat and records this information on a graph. ECGs are required for the diagnosis of arrhythmias and many cardiac abnormalities, it can be used to see evidence of acute heart attacks and also the events that have occurred in the past. ECG is also known as an electrocardiogram or EKG.

One complete cardiac cycle = P, Q, R, S, (QRS complex) and T wave.

P wave: Atrial depolarization (contraction)

QRS complex: Ventricular depolarization, atrial repolarization

ST segment: The line between the QRS complex and the T wave, representing the time when the ventricles are depolarized before repolarization begins.

PR interval: It is the distance between the onset of P wave to the onset of QRS complex.

PR segment: It is the flat line between the end of P wave and the onset of QRS complex.

QT interval: It is the total duration of ventricular depolarization and repolarization.


Our B.O.L.T ECG device is a portable single channel three electrodes, a battery-powered medical device that measures your heart’s activity, such as heart rate, rhythm and heart conditions. This device also monitors other abnormalities that may affect normal heart function. ECG electrodes are placed on the user’s body and the leads are connected to the ECG device. The Electrode leads detect electrical impulses that are generated by the heart and transmits through wires into ECG device. Then the acquired and processed ECG data obtained from the device is transmitted to a mobile device wirelessly for further processing and analysis.

Personal Health Archive in the Cloud

You can archive the information from the app to give you a historical view of heart health data as you build and maintain your Personal Health Record. Then upload and save your results to your Personal Health Cloud to view, share and analyze the trends and access them anytime, anywhere. You can also share health data directly with your healthcare provider and add this information to your Electronic Medical Record (EMR), allowing you to take a more active and collaborative role in managing your health and addressing ongoing health challenges.
