Why Long-Term Monitoring May be Right for You

Accurate information is the key to better healthcare.

Irregular heartbeats may occur infrequently, making the underlying condition hard to find and treat. With continuous, long-term heart monitoring, your doctor can get information about your heart to help find the right answer for you.

The LINQ II System includes

  1. A small insertable cardiac monitor (ICM) that is placed just under the skin during a minimally invasive procedure.
  2. Either a smartphone/tablet app or home communicator that collects heart rhythm data from the ICM and sends it to your doctor.

Patient benefits

  • Accurate: the world’s most accurate ICM1-4
  • Longevity: detects abnormal heart rhythms for 4.5 years*†5
  • Discreet: not visible in most patients
  • Portable: the MyCareLink Heart™ mobile app goes wherever you go (cellular and Wi-Fi service availability applies)
  • MRI Compatible: safe for MRI at 1.5 and 3.0T with no post-insertion waiting required5,6
