Medtronic CareLink Network

Tachycardia (Fast Heartbeat)

Do you ever feel tied down because of doctor appointments or checkups? Would you like to travel more without worrying about being too far from your heart clinic? Would it reassure you to know you can stay connected to your doctor?*

The Medtronic CareLink® Network may give you a new sense of freedom through remote monitoring of your Medtronic implantable heart device. CareLink Monitoring allows you to send your device information to your clinic from your own home. Your clinic then reviews your device information on a secure Internet website, allowing your doctor to do a routine device follow-up or to review a special situation.

Today, nearly 300,000 people around the world benefit from Medtronic's home monitoring, gaining more:

  • Freedom - With CareLink Monitoring, you're free to live life more fully. You may not have to travel to the clinic as often for heart device follow-up appointments.
  • Convenience - The CareLink Monitor is easy to use. With the simple, one-touch monitor, you transmit device information easily from your own home. If you have an implanted heart device with Conexus Automatic Monitoring, your information may be sent automatically while you sleep.
  • Peace of mind - People who use CareLink Monitoring report a sense of reassurance knowing their doctor has access to important information about their heart health. If you feel symptoms, your clinic may ask you to send information so your doctor can review your condition. If your device has wireless features, alert notifications may be sent directly to your clinic as defined by your doctor.
