MyCareLink Monitor and USB cellular stick


Telephone companies are updating their cellular networks, which your MyCareLink monitor relies on to send your implanted heart device data to your clinic. Ensure your monitor is compatible with these updated networks, Medtronic is providing a free USB Cellular Stick to connect to your monitor, allowing you to continue sending your implanted heart device data to your clinic. This upgrade does not affect the normal operation of your implanted heart device. Proceed with upcoming transmissions as planned until you receive your free USB Cellular Stick.


In the coming weeks, you will receive a blue envelope from Medtronic. The envelope will include:

  • Program Description
  • Step-by-step Instructions
  • Patient Manual
  • USB Cellular Stick
  • Yellow Tool — used to remove blue sticker on right side of the MyCareLink monitor
