Speed up the 
ECG screening 
process with KardiaStation

Prescribing and managing 
QT-prolonging medications 
just got easier

The Problem

Many commonly prescribed 
medications cause QT prolongation

A prolonged QT interval may lead to a dangerously fast rhythm, Torsades de Pointe, which is a potentially fatal polymorphic ventricular tachycardia (VT).

To assess the risk associated with long QT, the FDA requires a baseline ECG when prescribing or titrating some QT-prolonging medications. This requirement may present a barrier to physicians and patients to be able to start treatment without delay.

2–3 weeks

treatment delay can occur when referring for an ECG

250+ medicines

prolong heart QT intervals¹

“There is no absolute QTc interval at which a psychotropic should not be used, rather a comprehensive risk-benefit analysis should include an assessment of pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic risks for TdP versus the risk of failure to control high-risk psychopathology or of psychiatric decompensation.”

American Psychiatric Association (APA) RESOURCE Document on QTc Prolongation & PSYCHOTROPIC Medications (2018)

Standard QT Screening Process

QT screening can create barriers along the clinical care pathway

  1. Patient leaves to get an ECGTreatment is delayedOffice must follow up for resultsTreatment options may be limited
  2. Inconvenience of extra visit for ECGPotential for additional costsPossible lack of follow-upMay miss out on optimal care

Practice Impacts

  • Patient leaves to get an ECG
  • Treatment is delayed
  • Office must follow up for results
  • Treatment options may be limited

Patient Impacts

  • Inconvenience of extra visit for ECG
  • Potential for additional costs
  • Possible lack of follow-up
  • May miss out on optimal care
