INDUSTRY-LEADING TruRhythm DETECTION
episode review without sacrificing sensitivity.
Patients with asymptomatic episodes are at equal risk for stroke as symptomatic patients.1
Continuous cardiac monitoring leads to more actionable events than conventional monitoring.6
Build a diagnostic picture by continuously monitoring AF burden, heart rate variability, and daily activity with Reveal LINQ™ insertable cardiac monitor (ICM).
Reveal LINQ ICM provides physicians with longitudinal data to objectively determine both asymptomatic and symptomatic AF. This data results in the measure of true AF burden and accurate characterization of the AF type to effectively guide therapy decisions.3,7
Heart rate variability
Median ventricular interval calculated every 5 minutes.
Reveal LINQ ICM allows physicians to continually monitor the ongoing change in AF burden so that treatment can be initiated or changed on a timely basis.8-10
Allow for customization by clinic and/or individual patient.
Smart filtering algorithm improves detection accuracy for Brady & Pause.
Streamlined episodes & report updates simplify data review.
Significantly reduce false positives while preserving sensitivity.10,11
Based on clinical evidence.
Medtronic CareAlert™ notifications are not intended to be used as the sole basis for making decisions about patient medical care.
Reveal LINQ has been demonstrated to pose no known hazards in a specified MRI environment with specified conditions of use. Please see the Reveal™ ICM clinician manual or MRI technical manual for more details.
