Managing heart conditions
Understand the link between fainting and your heart.
Unexplained fainting, also known as syncope, can have serious causes, including heart conditions. An implantable heart monitor, also known as a loop recorder or ICM, can help. An implanted heart monitor can watch your heart for irregular heartbeats 24/7 — even if they happen rarely, you can’t feel them, or if they occur while you’re passed out. This can help your doctor understand if your fainting is related to your heart and connect you with the right treatment faster. Ask your doctor about heart monitoring.
