SEEQ MCT System

SEEQ MCT SYSTEM OUR MONITORS

The SEEQ™ Mobile Cardiac Telemetry System provides short-term heart monitoring.

WHY SHORT-TERM HEART MONITORING MAY BE RIGHT FOR YOU

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.

  • Simple – Wear like an adhesive bandage day and night — even in the shower.
  • 24/7 Monitoring – Continuous monitoring is provided by technicians at the Medtronic Monitoring Center.
  • Discreet – With no wires or leads, the sensor can be worn beneath clothing at work, at play or while sleeping.
  • 30 Days – The SEEQ MCT System detects abnormal heart rhythms for up to 30 days.1

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS 

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.
