INDICATIONS

The Reveal LINQ Insertable Cardiac Monitor is an implantable patient-activated and automatically-activated monitoring system that records subcutaneous ECG and is indicated in the following cases:

  • patients with clinical syndromes or situations at increased risk of cardiac arrhythmias
  • patients who experience transient symptoms such as dizziness, palpitation, syncope and chest pain, that may suggest a cardiac arrhythmia.

This device has not been specifically tested for pediatric use.
