Along with the horse aortic valve, I now wear a cardiac monitoring system,.primarily to see if I am suffering aortic fibrillation. They didn't see any while I was in the hospital, but they would like to know. The details: there are two patches for ripping out chest hair (of which I have a chimp-like level), and cords running to a box on my belt. When it detects abnormal heart beavior, or if I press a button, it records 30 seconds of EKG and then relays it to a service center via cell phone.
