Managing heart conditions
Make informed decisions with long-term heart monitoring.
AFib burden is the amount of time your heart is in AFib over time. This includes how often you go into AFib (whether you feel it or don’t) and how long you are in AFib. An insertable monitor, also known as a loop recorder or an ICM, that watches your heart 24/7 can give your doctor this information. Understanding your AFib burden can help your doctor make treatment recommendations.
A small pulse of electric current spreads quickly through the heart to make the muscle contract.
In AFib, the heart’s upper chambers quiver faster than the rest of the heart.
