The Tees Remote ECG Pathway

Dr. M Santhana Krishnan Consultant in Old Age Psychiatry/ Senior Clinical Director, and Lauren Bennett, Innovations Coordinator, along with colleagues from Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust have developed a remote ECG pathway using the KardiaMobile 6L device– the world’s only six-lead CE marked, and FDA cleared personal six-lead ECG.

Initially the team implemented the pathway to support patients and staff during the Covid-19 pandemic and the benefits and evaluation results from patient’s and staff has been overwhelmingly positive. The Trust has now taken the decision to use these on a permanent basis, procuring and distributing over 100 devices across 100 community teams.

HI NENC has supported further spread and adoption of this pathway across the region- Cumbria, Northumberland Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust (CNTW) have procured 40 devices.
