Living with an insertable heart monitor

MyCareLink™ Patient Monitor

For the Reveal LINQ™ insertable cardiac monitor (ICM)

Tips for staying connected

After receiving a Reveal LINQ ICM, you will also get a transmitter that wirelessly collects heart data from your device and makes it available to your doctor. Your heart information will be sent automatically, usually while you sleep, through the transmitter. All you need to do is:

  • Sleep within 6.5 ft (2 m) of your home transmitter.
  • Always keep your home transmitter plugged in — make sure the outlet isn’t controlled by a wall switch that could be turned off.
  • Do not press any buttons unless otherwise instructed.

Your doctor will let you know if a manual transmission is necessary.

Optional Patient Assistant

Your doctor may recommend that you carry an additional small device to mark symptoms. If you receive one, carry it with you at all times to mark symptoms as they happen.

To use the Patient Assistant:

  1. When you experience a symptom, press and release the button. The searching light will start to flash blue.
  2. Quickly hold the Patient Assistant flat against your chest, directly over your Reveal LINQ ICM.
  3. When a symptom is successfully marked, the success tone will sound and the success light will illuminate green. If the success signals do not occur within 15 seconds, repeat steps 1-2.

Important Safety Information

Additional Information: Patient Assistant
The Patient Assistant is intended for unsupervised patient use away from a hospital or clinic. The Patient Assistant activates the data management feature in the Reveal™ insertable cardiac monitor to initiate recording of cardiac event data in the implanted device memory. Operation of the Patient Assistant near sources of electromagnetic interference, such as cellular phones, computer monitors, etc., may adversely affect the performance of this device.
