Recording Your First ECG Do not use Kardia Mobile while charging your phone. Do not take a recording while driving or during physical activity. Do not take a recording if the electrodes are dirty. Clean them first. • Tap the Kardia app on your phone to open the application. • Rest two or more fingers on Kardia Mobile; your right hand should contact the sensor (electrode) closest to the bottom of the smartphone, and your left hand should contact the electrode closest to the top of the smartphone. • Rest your arms on a flat surface. Remain still with your fingers on the electrodes for 30 sec. • Your first ECG is sent for analysis (U.S. only).
ECG Analysis Subsequent recordings: • Tap “Record now” on the Standard EKG screen. • Follow instructions for “Recording Your First ECG.” • After ECG recording is complete, the ECG is analyzed to determine if it is at least 30 seconds long, if it is Normal, Unclassified, possible Atrial Fibrillation is present, or if it is too noisy to interpret. Presence of possible Atrial Fibrillation (AF) in your ECG results may present only potential findings. If you are experiencing any symptoms or have concerns, contact your physician. Normal results mean your heart rate is between 50 and 100 beats per minute, and shape, timing and duration of each beat is considered normal. An Unclassified message means the tracing is not Normal and not AF, and interference was not detected. An example of an Unclassified tracing is one where tachycardia is observed. Unreadable ECG results determines that you didn’t have proper ECG recording for analysis. You may try to re-record your ECG. ECG reports viewed at any magnification other than 100% may appear distorted and could lead to misdiagnosis.
