The SEEQ™ Mobile Cardiac Telemetry System provides short-term heart monitoring.
The SEEQ Mobile Cardiac Telemetry (MCT) System features a comfortable, peel-and-stick wearable sensor that you apply yourself and wear on your chest. Once applied, the SEEQ wearable sensor continuously monitors your heart, records any irregular heart rhythms and communicates through a hand-held transmitter to the Medtronic Monitoring Center.
With its comfortable design and absence of wires or leads, the SEEQ wearable sensor can be worn discreetly beneath your clothing. Whether at work, sleeping or even in the shower, you can be confident that your SEEQ System is providing simple, reliable, monitoring around-the-clock.
24/7 Continuous Monitoring for up to 30 Days1
The SEEQ wearable sensor is very easy to apply and each one can be worn for 7.5 days of continuous monitoring. The SEEQ MCT System continuously and automatically sends your data to the Medtronic Monitoring Center via cellular signals. The Monitoring Center is staffed 24/7 to review any abnormal heart rhythms in a timely manner — whether you feel them or not.
To get started, locate the components of your SEEQ MCT System and charge the Transmitter for at least 6 hours before following these steps.
IMPORTANT: You may be required to use another Wearable Sensor if hair is not trimmed or skin is not cleaned with the Prep Wipe.
IMPORTANT: For best results, avoid showering and strenuous activity for 30 minutes after applying the sensor.
We’ve provided answers to some commonly asked questions that may arise while you’re wearing the SEEQ System. If these answers don’t answer your question, please contact the Medtronic Monitoring Center during the hours noted below.
Do I need to carry my Transmitter with me?
Yes, always carry your Transmitter with you to help ensure the Medtronic Monitoring Center and your physician can get your important heart information as quickly as possible. You should remain within 30 feet (9 meters) of the Transmitter for successful data transmission.
What should I do when I feel symptoms?
Whenever symptoms occur, trigger the monitor to transmit a record of your heart activity by pushing the Patient Trigger button located on the sensor until you hear a "beep." An ECG will be sent by the transmitter to the Monitoring Center for review and delivery to your physician.
Do I need wireless internet access or a cellular data plan?
No, the SEEQ MCT Wearable Sensor monitor and Transmitter communicate with built-in cellular technology. Then the Transmitter sends your data to the Medtronic Monitoring Center via global satellite cellular signals. There is no cost to you for data transmission.
What if the SEEQ MCT monitor causes my skin to itch?
In the rare event that you experience skin irritation while wearing the SEEQ MCT monitor, speak with your physician.
Will I need to change the battery in the monitor or the Transmitter?
Battery replacement is not required for either device. However, we recommend that you charge the Transmitter every night.
