Abstract

Heart attack or myocardial infraction is the leading cause of deaths in the modern world. In order to increase survival chance of patients, action should be taken during the first hour from the onset of symptoms, which is most often impossible with the current technology. To this end, we propose a method of heart attack treatment based on low frequency diastolic timed vibrations. This method can be used in ambulatory setting by unspecialized personnel as it is noninvasive and safe for the patient. It is based on applying low frequency mechanical vibrations synchronized with the heart cycle of the subject along with application of thrombus dissolving drugs. We present an analysis of the proposed methodology and provide experimental results obtained with a prototype device.
