14 Sep New Study on Jewel Patch Wearable Cardioverter Defibrillator (P-WCD)
Element Science announced the first patient save from a successful defibrillation early in the enrollment of the Investigational Device Exception (IDE) Study of its Jewel Patch Wearable Cardioverter Defibrillator (P-WCD).
The patient experienced “life-threatening arrhythmia” in the first week after returning home to a rural area where “emergency response teams are not immediately available.” The Jewel successfully saved the patient, restoring a normal rhythm with one defibrillation shock and allowing time for first responders to arrive. The patient was transported to the hospital for further care and has since received an implantable defibrillator and is recovering well.
