Allocation: N/A
Intervention Model: Single Group Assignment
Masking: None (Open Label)
Primary Purpose: Other
Official Title: Heart and Lung Function Monitoring System Evaluation
Study Start Date : November 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date : December 2018
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 2018

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Heart and Lung Function Monitioring Device: Integrated CardioRespiratory System
Participants will be asked to wear a non-invasive band on their upper abdomen while laying down. This band includes acoustic sensors. A remote monitoring device will continuously monitor and record heart rate and lung volumes and function.

Device: Transthoracic Echocardiography (TTE)
Participants will undergo a TTE examination. During the TTE, a technician obtains views of the heart by moving a small instrument called a transducer to different locations on the chest or abdominal wall.

Device: Electrocardiography
Participants will also have ECG monitoring as part of the TTE exam, which records the electrical activity of the heart using electrodes placed on the body.
Other Name: ECG

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Acoustic heart sound electronic data [ Time Frame: 60 minutes during system trial ]
    Heart and lung function monitoring

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Standard echocardiography parameters [ Time Frame: 60 minutes during examination simultaneous with system trial ]
    Transthoracic Echocardiography (TTE)
