Brief Statement

Indications
REVEAL LINQ? LNQ11 Insertable Cardiac Monitor

The Reveal LINQ Insertable Cardiac Monitor is an implantable patient-activated and automatically-activated monitoring system that records subcutaneous ECG and is indicated in the following cases:

  • patients with clinical syndromes or situations at increased risk of cardiac arrhythmias
  • patients who experience transient symptoms such as dizziness, palpitation, syncope and chest pain, that may suggest a cardiac arrhythmia.

The device has not been tested specifically for pediatric use.

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. 

Contraindications
There are no known contraindications for the implant of the Reveal LINQ Insertable Cardiac Monitor. However, the patient's particular medical condition may dictate whether or not a subcutaneous, chronically implanted device can be tolerated.
