Under the theme of "Revealing asymptomatic atrial fibrillation and hypertension in the fight against stroke," the satellite symposium will be chaired by Prof. Gerhard Hindricks of Charite University Hospital and discuss blood pressure control and early detection of atrial fibrillation. The symposium will also introduce the latest study on detecting atrial fibrillation recurrence after ablation at home as well as a technique of diagnosing atrial fibrillation in 30 seconds and its advantages.
At the booth, the Company will present a set of innovative devices and services, including "Complete (TM)," an upper-arm blood pressure monitor with built-in ECG technology that can record ECG while monitoring blood pressure, and a portable ECG device that allows users to record an electrocardiogram whenever they feel unwell. "Viso," an OMRON Healthcare remote patient-monitoring service, will also be showcased at the booth. Viso is a service, currently available in the U.K., that allows patients to share vital data measured at home with their doctors in real time, enabling doctors to intervene in the hypertension management appropriately based on the patient's condition.
Aiming for zero cerebro-cardiovascular events, the Company has been working on advancing the ways of hypertension treatment in collaboration with healthcare professionals and researchers. The Company will continue to promote academic activities globally, develop devices and services, and contribute to empowering people worldwide to live life to the fullest.
