The disposable heart rate indicator widely used in Finland

User base of Spektikor disposable heart rate detector is growing strongly in Finland. Doctors, paramedics and department managers have positively received Spektikor.

The disposable heart beat indicator is now in use in ambulances and paramedic teams in nine hospital districts: it is delivered to the West Bottom, Oulu University Hospital, Kainuu, Central Ostrobothnia, Vaasa, Seinäjoki, Kuopio, North Karelia and South Savo. At South Ostrobothnia Spektikor is in test mode.
