Detailed steps for setting up your KardiaMobile:

Next, launch the Kardia app and tap “Create Account.”
Enter a few details to create an account. This should only take about a minute.
Before taking your first EKG, make sure that:
- Your device is unplugged from power and accessories, like headphones.
- You aren’t close to anything that could cause interference, like computers.
- Hearing aids are turned off, if you wear them.
From the home screen, tap “Record your first EKG.”
