TEWKSBURY, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Cambridge Heart, Inc. (OTCBB: CAMH), a developer of non-invasive diagnostic tests for cardiac disease, launches an updated, feature-rich website today at www.cambridgeheart.com. The new site features updated content in a variety of multimedia formats and addresses the company’s key audiences including clinicians, patients and investors. New graphics, increased functionality and improved navigation to allow users to easily access important information about sudden cardiac arrest and to learn about Cambridge Heart’s proprietary Microvolt T-Wave Alternans™ (MTWA) diagnostic test. Patients can now use the website to locate testing facilities in their area that offer the MTWA test.
“As the MTWA test continues to be embraced by the medical community through our partnership with Cardiac Science, it is important that we provide a resource for clinicians and patients who are interested in learning more about how MTWA testing can help identifying and managing patients at risk for sudden cardiac arrest,” said Ali Haghighi-Mood, CEO, Cambridge Heart.
The new website also includes a clinician resource center which features Cambridge Heart product information, clinical data on MTWA and case studies demonstrating the utility of the company’s technology.
Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) is the leading cause of death in the U.S. accounting for an estimated 300,000 deaths each year - more than lung cancer, breast cancer and HIV/AIDS combined. Out-of-hospital survival is less than 8 percent, making prediction and prevention critically important. It is estimated that there are approximately 10 to 12 million heart attack and heart failure patients in the U.S. who can benefit from annual MTWA testing. Microvolt T-Wave Alternans is a marker of SCA risk which is measured during a non-invasive treadmill test using Cambridge Heart's proprietary technologies. The Company's MTWA test is the only one of its kind that is reimbursed by Medicare under a National Coverage Policy.
