Abstract

In recent years, there has been an emergence of long-term cardiac monitoring devices, particularly as they relate to nonprescribed, user-initiated, wearable- and/or, smartphone-based devices. With these new available data, practitioners are challenged to interpret these data in the context of routine clinical decision-making. While there are many potential uses for long-term rhythm monitoring, in this review, we will focus on the evolving role of this technology in atrial fibrillation (AF) monitoring after catheter and/or surgical ablation. Here, we explore the landscape of prescription-based tools for long-term rhythm monitoring; investigate commercially available technologies that are accessible directly to patients, and look towards the future with investigative technologies that could have a growing role in this space.
