Hydrix Limited (ASX: HYD, ‘Hydrix’ or the ‘Company’) is pleased to provide the following patient updates regarding the four implants of the AngelMed Guardian in Singapore announced on 17 August 2020.
AngelMed Guardian device Alarms are now programmed and turned on
All four patients post-operative implant procedures have been completed. Each patient implanted device (IMD) gathered ECG data over the past two-weeks to establish the patient’s baseline heart signal. Hydrix Medical and Angel Medical Systems field clinical engineers configured each IMD alarm to align with each patient’s individual physiology. The IMD is set to recognise changes to each patients physiology that are indicative of a heart attack. With this simple post-operative procedure complete, these patients are now benefitting from the device.
In commenting on the latest milestone, Paul Kelly, General Manager – Hydrix Medical said: “We are very pleased by the success of the four implants in Singapore by Dr Lam which lays the foundation for future growth. An estimated 500,000 people annually suffer from an acute coronary syndrome event of which many may benefit from the AngelMed Guardian.”
Hydrix Medical and Angel Medical Systems presented a scientific webinar to cardiac specialists. Keynote presenters included AngelMed’s Founder and key opinion leaders from Harvard Medical School, the Mayo Clinic, Duke University School of Medicine, together with the implanting cardiologist. The webinar presented exclusive insights into the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of the AngelMed Guardian system, the profile of high risk patients for which the device is indicated for use, and medical learnings and insights based on the implants performed by Dr Leslie Lam in Singapore.
Recordings of this event are being made available to cardiac industry professionals who are keen to learn more about the AngelMed Guardian system.
