Latest Published Research

Research published in the Heart Rhythm Society journal Heart Rhythm O2 concluded: "In this first-in-human, proof-of-concept study in patients with paroxysmal AF, LL-EMF stimulation results in significantly shorter episodes of pacing-induced AF, as well as a reduced likelihood of spontaneous firing initiating an episode of AF, compared to sham stimulation. Larger studies are warranted to confirm these findings and provide further mechanistic insights."

Key Findings

  • Low-level electromagnetic field stimulation (LL-EMF) is able to suppress the inducibility of atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients presenting for ablation of paroxysmal AF.
  • LL-EMF decreased levels of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 measured in peripheral venous blood.
  • LL-EMF represents an interesting new approach for noninvasive management of AF, and requires further study to assess its efficacy in improving clinical AF outcomes.
