Learn how our heart monitor is helping patients find answers.
While each of these real-life stories focuses on an individual experience, they all share a common component: in each case continuous heart monitoring provided insight that led to an informed treatment plan and greater peace of mind.
Margaret experienced several fainting episodes and injured herself. She lost confidence and really wanted to know what the problem was. Her doctor recommended heart monitoring with the Reveal LINQ Insertable Cardiac Monitoring (ICM) system to help find the answer.
Irina is a busy working mother and fainted on several occasions, including once onboard an airplane when travelling for business. Thanks to long term heart monitoring with the Reveal LINQ ICM system, her doctor could rule out cardiac causes for her fainting episodes.
When Sylvia Edwards had an unexplained stroke her doctors used a Medtronic implantable loop recorder to investigate the potential causes.
When Christopher Parker had an unexplained stroke he was fitted with a Medtronic cardiac monitor. The device not only helped diagnose his condition but also inspired his daughter, Erica, to pursue a career in biomedical technology with Medtronic.
