Mobile Cardiac Telemetry Companies

Mobile Cardiac Telemetry (MCT) companies are at the forefront of innovation in the ambulatory cardiac monitoring industry. They provide monitoring devices that automatically detect and transmit cardiac abnormalities via cell phone to an accredited laboratory that operates 24/7, 365 days a year.
