Hello, question for the nice MDs from the RFD: I am looking for a good pulsometer (finger, watch etc) for my mother, she has a severe arrhythmia. Any recommendation? Thank you!

Ask her specialist. There are several ongoing studies.
Some patients use:

Buy her a new car instead.

Ask me about the AMEX Air Miles Reserve Credit Card. A much better way to redeem your Dream Air Miles.

Not human md but a vet here, thinking about getting master cardiology, dogs pant with excitement and then it's hard to hear heart sounds with my regular one.

Mine is for the Mercedes glove box. My second Mercedes.
I might buy one to keep in my private plane's glove box.

you probably don't want one that hears (all) sounds much louder

My mom is in Europe, I do not interfere with her cardiologist. I just want to buy something recommended for her situation, to help her to better monitor her heart beats.

The Samsung Gear Fit 2 is apparently very accurate according to a staff member I work with. She had a checkup for a stress test with her cardiologist for having a pulse of 200bpm (on her watch) with some palpitation when she was doing her regular running, and it turned out it was the case during the test. The cardiologist was surprised on how accurate and on point it was compared to his own machine. I've heard about the Apple Watch capable of detecting arrythmias? But in general, these are not diagnostic tools, and can never replace an actual specialist and hospital equipment. It can help you guide to your decisions in consulting a healthcare professional, or have a log to discuss on follow ups with the specialists.

I own a Gear Fit 2 as well, and plugged myself on a cardiac monitor when the unit is not busy, so far it's accurate lol (Gear Fit 2 does not detect arrythmias, only heart rate)

I've seen it all at work in the parkade: nephrologist with a very old generation Odyssey, urologist pulling in with a mazda3. On the other end of the spectrum, Tesla's, 911 turbo, r8, rs7, etc

That's like saying direct laryngoscopy is different than intubation. They're 2 different things but related. And there is likely no easier and more definitive way to confirm placement than with auscultation .
Lol, no direct laryngoscopy is a technique used, most often, to intubate. I'd love to see anyone of you intubate with an ett and a stethoscope. Lol. Fyi etco2
Is easier and definitive.
