Talk to your child's doctor about the risks and benefits of long-term cardiac monitoring.
†Long-term cardiac monitoring is prescribed by a physician and is not for everyone. Please talk to your child’s doctor to see if it is right for your child. Your child’s physician should discuss all potential benefits and risks with you.

Insertion of a Medtronic heart monitor typically takes less than five minutes. It does not require general anesthesia. The monitor is placed just under the skin during an outpatient procedure. Your child can then get back to their day.
After the implant, you will return home with either a smartphone app or a bedside transmitter. All you have to do is keep the smartphone app open or keep the bedside transmitter plugged in. Your child’s doctor will be automatically notified of abnormal heartbeats.
Medtronic heart monitors are the world’s smallest and most clinically studied insertable monitors. Medtronic invented the insertable heart monitor over 20 years ago. Since then, over 1.5 million people have been implanted and monitored with Medtronic insertable heart monitors.
Long-term cardiac monitoring is prescribed by your child's physician and is not for everyone. Please talk to your child's doctor to see if it is right for them. Your child's physician should discuss all potential benefits and risks with you. Although many patients benefit from long-term monitoring, results may vary.
