What is it about?
This is a scoping review of the academic and medical literature that report on mobile heart monitoring devices that measure heart palpitations and heart rhythm problens (arrhythmia).

Why is it important?
This scoping review highlights that further work is required to understand the impact of mobile heart monitoring devices on how arrhythmias and palpitations are assessed and measured across all populations and ages of society. This review demonstrated he lack of knowledge and insight from primary care providers and lack of qualitative material. We argue that future studies consider qualitative and mixed methods approaches to complement quantitative methodologies and to ensure all actors’ experiences are recorded.
