What is a Zio Cardiac Monitoring?
Zio is used to monitor different kinds of irregular heart rhythms. In a study, physicians were able to reach a diagnosis 90% of the time with the Zio system.
You can wear the Zio monitor — a small, discreet, comfortable patch — during your normal day-to-day activity, including while you sleep, shower, and exercise, while it records every single heartbeat for analysis.
