BIO|CONCEPT.BIOMONITOR III

Miniaturized implantable cardiac monitor with a long sensing vector (BIOMONITOR III): Insertion procedure assessment, sensing performance, and home monitoring transmission success

MARIANI J ET AL.,JOURNAL OF ELECTROCARDIOLOGY 2020

 


Study Design

  • Prospective, open-label, non-randomized, multicenter study
  • 48 patients implanted with a BIOMONITOR III, using the FIT OneStep insertion tool at 10 sites in Australia
  • Follow-up one week (on-site) and one month (Home Monitoring) after implantation
  • To confirm the safety and efficacy of the insertion procedure and of the use and handling of the incision/insertion tools, and to assess the sensing quality of BIOMONITOR III

 

Key Result 1

BIOMONITOR III shows a high and stable R-wave amplitude

Key Result 3

BIOMONITOR III shows good usability and is easy to handle

Clinical Relevance

  • Implantable Cardiac Monitors (ICM) are helpful in the diagnosis of a wide range of rare disorders and pathologies.
  • Remote monitoring capabilities of ICMs improve the time to diagnosis and the follow-up strategy and offer a potential reduction of health care costs.
  • The Bio|Concept study data confirmed the safety, efficacy and sensing quality of BIOMONITOR III.

 


Study Objective
