Implantable Cardiac Monitors (ICM) Systems
Implantable cardiac monitors (ICM) are used for long-term monitoring of a patient's heart electrical activity to detect irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias). The intelligent ICM can automatically detect arrhythmias even when the patient is unaware of these. The device is able to store several ECGs covering multiple types of arrhythmias. In combination with BIOTRONIK Home Monitoring, the data is sent to the physician on a daily basis. In this way, the physician is better informed and can make a diagnosis earlier.
Medical guidelines recommend the use of ICMs for patients with unexplained syncope and for those suspected to have atrial fibrillation (AF).
