OntoMed Launches OntoNet-CARDIO for Real-Time Anticipation of Tachycardias and Fibrillations

OntoMed, a privately-owned company developing leading-edge complexity-based technology and solutions for applications in medicine, releases OntoNet-Cardio, an advanced algorithm which processes EGMs (Electrograms) providing early-warnings of imminent tachycardia and/or fibrillation. "The algorithm does not detect tachycardias or fibrillations, it anticipates them by identifying pre-event conditions as early as 15-20 seconds before they actually happen" said Dr. J. Marczyk, the CEO of OntoMed. "The principle on which OntoNet-Cardio functions has been verified in a multitude of fields and applications and is based on sudden variations of complexity which precede traumatic events" he added. "We are open to partnerships and collaborations with ICD/pacemaker manufacturers who are interested in incorporating our technology in their products" he concluded.
