What is the DEFINE AFib research study?

The DEFINE AFib research study aims to improve the understanding of how data from the Reveal LINQ or LINQ II insertable cardiac monitor (ICM) can be used to guide the management of Afib. We will use a combination of device data, electronic health records, and health app data to evaluate the association between complex patterns of Afib and clinical outcomes, quality of life, and healthcare visits.

Be a part of the research, get access to your Afib data.

By participating in the DEFINE AFib research study, you’ll have special access to data from your Reveal LINQ or LINQ II ICM that shows you average daily Afib duration for a week and/or a month.

All patient data shown within images is fictitious and for demonstration purposes only.

Why your participation matters.

This nationwide app-based observational research study — sponsored by Medtronic — can’t succeed without support from people who:

  • Have a Medtronic Reveal LINQ or LINQ II ICM
  • Have a history of Afib
  • Have an Apple® iPhone® 6s or newer model with iOS 13 or later

The surveys you answer about your symptoms, engagement with your healthcare system, and quality of life, combined with the data your Reveal LINQ or LINQ II ICM captures, provide us with insights to help guide the management of Afib in the future. Patients will be able to view their daily Afib duration data with their Reveal LINQ or LINQ II ICM.*
